Daily Threads: Over the Weekend



  
top: c/o Karen Kane {similar}
{pants made into} shorts: Banana Republic 

Let's talk about this shirt. The lovely people over at Karen Kane were so generous to let me pick out a few pieces from their upcoming summer line - and this shirt is one of them. I initially chose the shirt because a.) it was different from anything that I had and b.) I really liked it! And now that I actually have it and I'm wearing it - I'm in love! The looseness of the top paired with the gorgeous embroidery gives me the feeling of "Boho Sophisticated"  - and it's fabulous!

Paired with the sandals and the braid, this is my perfect weekend look. It's causal, but still very put together and wearable. To take this look into the night - perhaps for a nice dinner - I would just throw on some nude pumps, trade my braid for a top-knot, and grab a bright clutch. Boom. What's your favorite weekend look?

Love the summery look of this outfit. It looks so comfortable and cool! And man, I can't wait until my hair is that long so I can pull off the loose braid. It will only be...um...another 3 or 4 years until it gets to that point.

This is a lovely weekend look! I enjoy comfy knit dresses on the weekends. I'm getting more into the boho look on weekends. I have to be quite business professional during the week, so I love a different look on my days off.

Lydia Marie said...

That's a great top! I love loose flowy tops worn with shorts, especially on the weekends.

This top is really pretty! I got an e-mail from Karen Kane a week or so ago with photos of their summer collection, and this top caught my eye, too! =)

My favorite weekend look for summer is white shorts or white linen pants with flat sandals and a navy top.
