Hi friends! I had planned this post for Monday but just couldn’t quite get it together so my apologies for the silence. This will be my last post for this week, I’m taking a break but I’ll be back!
Do you have items in your wardrobe you categorize as “errand running” or “hanging around the house”? You know the things you wouldn’t wear out to dinner or drinks with friends. I do. The boundaries rarely get blurred. But blurred they did on Friday.
I spent the day working from home and preparing a princess cake for my niece’s birthday. Wearing my favorite new and comfy shorts and tee c/o XCVI was a no brainer. You might remember I shared these sandals as part of last week’s Friday Favorites. They are as comfortable as they are cute!
Later in the day I had plans to go to happy hour and Trader Joe’s with my bestie Melodie. This was a girls night – our husbands were going to a concert. I knew we’d want to sit outside and enjoy the weather. It is warmer than normal here (87 degrees) but not as hot as it will be very soon and alfresco dining is my favorite.
Have you ever been in clothes that just feel so darn good you don’t want to take them off? Well, that’s how I felt on Friday. So that’s what I did. I added accessories, a kimono (check out this one on sale and FREE Shipping!), and wedges. Just like that I took my XCVI from day in to day out – and day out it was since we arrived at Brio by 4:30!
So if you take anything from this post, take this – think outside the box with casual wear. If you build a wardrobe of pieces you like in similar colors you can elevate a casual look. I bought these wedges last summer from Target and I am pleased to see they have them again this year. Y’all, they are very comfortable and well made. Mine are a light pink but they also come in gray, light gray and cognac. I am getting a pair in cognac this year – I highly recommend. They run TTS.
Don’t forget to use my code THISBLONDE20 to save 20% on your entire order from XCVI. My tee and shorts are in the color smoky coral and I think it is such a pretty shade. I am wearing a medium in the top and a small in the shorts. These pieces would be great to take on vacation because they can literally be used from day to night with a few simple changes.
So, how has your life changed during this time of social distancing? I work from home anyway but my husband is now doing the same and my boys are headed home tonight to finish the spring semester online. How about you?
My favorite post from last week comes from the super talented Heather of My Glittery Heart. This busy momma blogs, has an Etsy Store with all the glittery fun you could want, and sells Senegance. Is she not stunning in this green dress?
