While quite a few outfit posts at TAGG are work looks, I am going to make an effort to show you more of my casual weekend looks. I often see some of the most put together women looking a bit ho-hum on the weekend (truth) because I think they invest so much effort and dollars into weekday looks that the weekend becomes an after thought. Even while browsing around nice shops in the mall I’m surprised that so many gorgeous women — who are, by the way, shopping for nice clothes — look kind of frumpy. Yoga pants, unflattering oversized tees, too-tight jeans, you name it.

TAGG tip: here’s my tried-and-true weekend formula = Layering tee/tank + cardi + dark wash jeans (flares, boyfriend, skinnies, boot cut, whatever fits you) + bold necklace. I’m often in skinnies because I love that one pair has a hem length that works with flats and heels. Really easy for a quick change (just switch tote to a clutch, too, for night). Also, play with the colors. This cardi would look awesome with a pop of yellow as the tee or cami, or even orange or pink, etc.  You get the idea!

TAGG perk: these new wedges I’m obsessed with? They’re by awesome (and affordable!) brand, MIA. As a treat to you, MIA is giving you 10 percent off these and all others on its web site with code AVGGIRL1. Plus, shipping is free with purchases of $50 or more.
