Lately my weeks and weekends have been booked up — with commitments of both the fun and not-so-fun sort — but this past weekend was wide open, and my boyfriend and I really indulged in a leisurely two days off.
Going from brunch to the pool to a movie to drinks at a dive bar in a dinky town 40 minutes north of us (spontaneity in its simplest and best form), I found myself reaching for the same five things to see me through the days and nights. I barely put any thought into my appearance, and wouldn’t you know, my boyfriend said I’d never looked better.
Maybe he’s just a nice guy, maybe boys are blind, or maybe there’s something to be said for a simple summer uniform that lets you have fun without the fuss.
This weekend I lived in my favorite pair of distressed (and I mean, distressed) boyfriend jeans, a few neon tanks, and my go-with-everything summer sandals from Target. I topped it off with my favorite moto jacket and stowed my essentials in a colorful crossbody bag (I just got a hot pink Coach Legacy Penny bag, and it’s perfection).
It was nothing revolutionary — just easy, breezy, and fun, as summer should be.
What’s your summer weekend uniform?
