Weekend Staple: Classic White Shirt With Coloured Jeans

Happy Saturday everyone! Yesterday I went to my hairdresser and paid for a wash and blow-dry. It was money well spent as my hair looked great and I did not have to spend the time and effort doing it myself.  As I was sitting in the chair, I started thinking about how much I enjoy getting my hair done by someone else. A question popped up in my mind –  if a beauty genie suddenly appeared and said that I could choose to have one beauty treatment whenever I wanted, what would I choose?  I went through the list of treatments women often indulge in such as blow-drys, facials, massages, manicures, pedicures,  waxing (ok that is not a treat) and many more and decided that I would definitely choose a blow-dry.  If a beauty genie granted you a free wish for one treatment any time any place  – what would you choose?

Weekends are a great time for casual meet ups with friends where I want to look nice but not make the effort to get ‘dressed up’. I find a classic white shirt with coloured jeans works a treat for me  – I can add wedges and a nice clutch to add some oomph to the outfit without going overboard. I love this linen and cloth shirt with pretty bows at the wrist and it works perfectly with jeans of any colour. I have added a lovely ‘insect’ necklace and a striped clutch to add an element of interest and neutral wedges to bring the outfit together.  It’s a comfortable and fun outfit – my favourite kind of clothes for the weekend.

I hope you like this look and thank you for reading my blog.  Have a great weekend!

A very happy Saturday to you all! One of the nicest compliments that I have received from a reader is that she enjoys my posts where I feature trainers (or sneakers) because as an adult she had forgotten how versatile and grown-up trainers can be and as a result did not own any ‘beautiful’ trainers. Now, she was reintroducing trainers into her shoe collection and enjoying styling them as an integral part of her casual look.

I am a great fan of the ‘beautiful trainers’ trend and I hope that it stays at the fashion forefront forever! In my opinion, it is far easier to style a great evening look than it is a great casual look.  I am convinced that the reason so many women reach the point of articulating ‘I have nothing to wear’ (which I have definitely said) is because putting together a cohesive casual look is trickier than it seems. I am constantly bowled over by people who have great ‘effortless’ casual style and seem to put together everyday outfits in fabulous combinations.

What have I learned from observing these fabulous fashionistas?

  • Spend a larger chunk of your budget on buying good quality casual clothes and shoes – you will get more wear out of them than an expensive dress.
  • Incorporate more colour into your casual wardrobe and make the effort to bring together different colour combinations on a daily basis.

I am enjoying pale coloured jeans at the moment and I love the combination of red and pink in any outfit.  I have included a light-weight navy jacket to the mix to bring in another colour to my casual weekend look. I absolutely love these silver trainers as they are made of the softest leather that envelopes the foot and makes for a great ‘walking around town’ stylish trainer.

I hope you enjoy this look and have a great weekend! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.
