Creating a Chic Weekend Look {with Items in Your Closet!}

I’m all about keeping it casual on the weekend, but I can never go out of the house without feeling my best. To me this means taking what could possibly be called casual items in your closet and dressing them up to create an effortlessly chic look. Today I’m sharing with you an easy look you can duplicate and feel your best in! By sticking with basic items you probably already have in your closet, you can be ready for a weekend look that’s ready to face anything.

The basics you’ll need:

Why they work:

These are timeless items that you can wear over and over. When combined together they create the perfect union of effortless style. Jeans and heels have always been one of my favorite casual chic looks. Add the distressed denim with a sophisticated white button down and you’ll instantly have an outfit ready for a stylish weekend. This is definitely an outfit you can’t go wrong with.

Finishing with accessories:

Choosing accesories for this outfit is the fun part. Here’s the pieces I’d recommend adding:

You can wear any type of heels you want depending on the look you’re going for. A leopard print pump? A strappy black heeled sandal? Both will work! I chose to go for a sleek white pair of sandals to keep the look minimalistic.

I’m wearing this classic Julia Engel Miami Rose Golden Brown from AIBI Watch and love it! Who doesn’t love rose gold accessories and a little touch of sparkle?

      Thank you! I think adding heels to a casual outfit can definitely make it look more sophisticated!

    Super cute post Molly! I actually have all of these pieces in my wardrobe. I wish I could rock a heel though, I have tendinitis in my big toes and have to pretty much stick to confort shoes. I love all of your accessories too.

      Thank you! I’m sure you could rock a version of this outfit minus the heels. You look gorgeous and chic in whatever you wear though!

    I am the same way about not leaving the house without being put together- people always say I’m way over dressed. I’m glad I’m not the only one. Hugs, Kait
