Happy 1st of August Beauties!
Let me tell you, there is nothing better than your weekend wardrobe. Seriously, as soon as the weekend hits I am so excited to put on my denim uniform and hangout whether that means going for a summer walk or kickin’ it at a local coffee shop. Today’s summer look is functional and simple because I was shooting all day for another ride along video. Check out the steps I took to create this August afternoon look!
1. Buy good quality denim and dress it up with a fun shoe!
Finding the perfect pair of jeans is one of the hardest ventures when shopping. I always suggest looking at the tag before you purchase. Look for denim that has a high percentage of cotton. This will basically ensure that you won’t get that saggy bum in the middle of the day.
Girl, no one wants that! I love these jeans because they are 98% cotton and keep their form fitting frame all day long (psst – let’s be serious sometimes I wear them 3 times before even washing them. Now that is a good pair of denim!)
Remember you don’t have to break the bank when buying a fun shoe. It’s not like I am wearing these bad boys everyday. I got these beauties at H&M and they definitely do the trick!

2. Don’t count a simple tee out!
I was so focused on creating my professional wardrobe that I forgot how much I love just throwing on a tee! T-shirts are the perfect mix of comfort and style if you dress them up. I love the strip on this tee and how it flows away from my body – perfect for so many figures!

3. Keeping it simple does not mean you need to forget the flare!
Accessories are the perfect way to add personality to any look. I currently have a sling bag obsession. They are so functional for weekend wear and always have a bit of personality. I found this little black bag and ring at Forever 21 – the perfect spot for accessory add-ons within a reasonable budget.

On summer evenings near golden hour, sunglasses are a must. I got this pair from Ardene. I have been on a search for the perfect frame of sunglasses before I invest in a quality brand. Still not sure if aviators are my thing but maybe you can let me know in the comments below!

4. My final claim to fame on my outfit is always my nail color!
It may seem like a tiny thing to consider but I always feel comfortable if my nails are done. For todays laid back look I chose a neutral and one of my all time favorites topless and barefoot by Essie with the gel setter on top for that extra shine and durability.
