OUTFITS

Outfit: Weekend Go-To Look

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.

cardigan: gap (spring 2012, recent; similar) / tee:  jeans: old navy (summer 2011; currently $19!) / wedges: c/o mia, ‘rhodes‘ / michael kors tote / j crew bubble necklace via ebay / bracelets: baublebar / ring: david yurman via my mommy / watch: michael kors

      Have the pink one too and am so obsessed. It’s an instant favorite. Go on ebay; about a tenth of the price.

      Adore blazers as well… just so hot here in Florida that a cardigan is a little lighter for the most part. Sounds like great minds think alike.

      Thanks!! I avoid jeans in the office however adding heels/wedges, etc definitely make it more appropriate for a work casual look.

    LOVE this outfit – so perfect for the weekend…casual, but still polished.  I have been making an effort to post more casual looks to the blog, too (for the same reason you mentioned here)! :)

    Such an easy outfit but still so chic. I’m one who doesn’t leave the house in pjs -although I’ve done it a couple times but only because I seriously had to run out REALLY quick. If I’m out shopping or running errands – my outfit is definitely very similar to this – a comfy tee and jeans. Most of the time, I go without jewelry though, toting two kids, I’m too afraid of my necklaces getting pulled and broken! (From experience.)

      hahaha yes, we are all guilty of the more casual look at times. And, hear ya on jewelry. This is more of an afternoon errands/transition to dinner look than a day at the park with my girl. Man, this thing would be torn apart in minutes. haha.
