OFF DUTY BASICS

Hi guys! Happy Friday!! Woohoo for the weekend! My post is right on time as I am discussing all things off duty. We all know I am huge girly girl, but I also love a fab pair of jeans every now and then.  img_8523-2

One of my favorite things to wear with jeans right now is a bodysuit. I know they aren’t for everyone and it’s definitely a trend that will pass, but right now I am all about them. This one is a huge steal from Topshop ($35). I love the lace up and the stripes! So easy and fun. I paired it with these high waisted and beyond comfy jeans from AG. Now these are not a steal, but honestly they are worth every penny. I find that cheaper jeans tend get baggy really fast and that after a few washes they get worn out and/or lose their color. That’s why I think it’s important to invest in a couple of pairs of jeans each season. They will last and you can wear them nonstop. I love the rips on these and the fact that they are jet black! They will be so fun all season with ankle boots and fun flats.

Because it’s been cooling off a bit a night now, I tied this super fun anorak from BP (only $69!) around my waist. I am all about anything olive green these days! This jacket fits super cute- you can cinch in the waist which I love! It’s such a fun option to wear with a simple tee and jean shorts or over an easy daytime dress.

For shoes I kept it simple with these stilettos from Steve Madden. Literally the best $79 I have spent in awhile since I wear them with everything!! My gold mirror lens Karen Walkers were the only option with this look as they just hit the vibe perfectly! For bag, I wanted a pop of color and I love love pairing olive green with tomato red, so I went with my Celine nano (here is a used option since you can’t buy Celine online)

Sidenote: let’s just discuss my hair in these pics for a minute. So I shoot like 4-8 looks at a time, this was look 8 and haha you can SO tell, right?!! We were shooting in Newport near the water and my hair is just a hot mess near salty ocean air. There are no words for how annoyed I get when I see this disheveled-ness on my head, but what can you do?!

Here are some more off duty essentials I am loving:

I hope you all have the most wonderful weekends! We are off to dinner with some friends tonight and then we have a fun date night planned for tomorrow at one of our go-to’s Gulfstream (the yummiest shrimp cocktail ever!) On Sunday we are going to shop around for Colby (my husband, I feel like it’s weird to not call him by his name on here) because his birthday is next Wednesday! One thing you need to know about me, I LOVE birthdays. Not just because it’s a fab excuse to eat cake, but because I adore having a full day to celebrate the ones you love. It’s always fun to remind those around you how much you appreciate them and I always find birthdays are a great time to share that gratefulness!

Cheers to a fab weekend loves! xo, Caro
