Weekend Wear: Bright Red (OOTD #17)

Bright red is one of my new favorite colors and I’ve been loving this bright red top lately. It’s perfectly breezy for warm summer days, but it also layers well and can be dressed up for the office since it’s a silky fabric. The halter neckline is fun and flattering and I like the ruffle accents around the neck and waist.

This top also goes with everything, from white jeans to cut offs. I’ve gone with more tailored denim shorts here and added casual brown sandals. That link is for a similar pair from Madewell; I totally would not recommend the J Crew ones I’m wearing in the photo as they’ve already broken!

What’s great about this top is that I’ve also worn it with my favorite dress pants and a gray cardigan for the office. I love when my clothes can pull double duty since my weekend and work looks are usual very different. Sometimes I feel like I have two completely opposite wardrobes, so it’s nice to get a lot of wear out of one piece.

What’s your favorite color to wear lately? Any favorite spots for workwear that can transition into going out?

Weekend Wear: Stripes (OOTD)

Wearing all blue

I’ve worn this striped sweater several times lately. It’s warm, but still lightweight and I love that the stripes line up at all of the seams. It’s something I look for when buying patterned pieces because it’s a sign of higher quality design and construction. I’m also still obsessed with these earrings… They go with every outfit and make a subtle statement! Can’t get enough. I linked some similar options in this post.

These Gap Girlfriend jeans are my favorite for casual looks. They fit a lot better than your typical boyfriend jeans – which can sometimes look silly or overwhelming on me because I’m so short. I also love the medium blue wash and statement pockets. Here’s a pair with similar distressed details. I cuffed mine to show off these shoes…

I’m finally wearing these booties I bought back in November! My sprain has almost completely healed, so anything with a heel is an option again! Spring starts next week, so velvet is now on the way out… but it’s supposed to snow tomorrow! So I think I can get away with them for a bit longer thankfully. Plus I love everything about these booties from the deep blue color to the floral embossed pattern. Here are some similar options if you’re looking for a fun style while it’s still chilly:

Sam Edelman Case Velvet Booties • Sam Edelman • $150
Vanessa Wu Metallic Booties • $99.95
Sam Edelman Petty Suede Booties • Sam Edelman • $65
Jack Rogers Jr Bailee Suede Booties • Jack Rogers • $64
Marc Fisher LTD. Women’s Cassidey2 Velvet Booties • Marc Fisher • $110.25

Are you guys ready for Spring? What are you most looking forward to wearing? You know I love my jeans, but I’m actually excited about dresses right now.
