5 DAYS / 5 WAYS

Weekday Wardrobe Inspiration- MONDAY

Hello, friends!  How were your weekends?  Mine was exactly what I needed.  Aaron was back in town and we were able to spend the whole weekend together– kind of a rarity these past couple of months!  We spent two days enjoying the 75 degree sunny weather and some of our favorite foodie spots.  Friday night we went to Mistral, this intimate french restaurant in the valley.  It has one of those classic mahogany bars and amazing woodwork throughout the restaurant.  If you let yourself, it’s easy to believe you are dining in Paris!  With a couple of new projects on the books, though, it is back to work this morning.  A couple of weeks ago, we started this series to offer up some much needed weekly wardrobe inspiration.  Sometimes a girl just needs a little push in the right direction when she is standing in front of her closet!  Hope you all have a fabulous week!

MONDAY: Tailored Trouser + Button Up Shirt + Cool Pump

Don’t worry if you don’t have a funky patterned pair of trousers like these.  If yours are solid, just try to pair it with a patterned shirt.  I love the  shirt tucked in with the skinny belt to top it off, but feel free to where the shirt out if you want a more dressed down feel.

Weekday Wardrobe Inspiration- TUESDAY

TUESDAY: Casual Tee + Blazer + Statement Necklace

This has got to be one of the easiest ways to pull off effortless chic style.  You can add a pop of color with any of the elements or keep it neutral.  Dress it up with skinny black jeans or down with lighter wash boyfriend jeans.

Weekday Wardrobe Inspiration- WEDNESDAY

WEDNESDAY: Stripes + Pop of Color

Interpret this one as you will: Striped dress, colorful skinny belt.  Striped tee, colored denim.  Striped jacket, bright pump.  You get the idea!

Weekday Wardrobe Inspiration- THURSDAY

THURSDAY: White Denim + Your Favorite Shoe

I love white denim in winter.  It looks super crisp and fresh and pairs with just about anything.  Why not pair this one with your favorite shoe in your closet?  Choose your top accordingly.

Weekday Wardrobe Inspiration- FRIDAY

FRIDAY: Chunky knit + Wrist-full of Accessories + Cute Flats

You’ve worked hard this week, so treat yourself to a casually chic Friday.  A Cozy sweater and your favorite flats will ensure comfort while a tailored jean and great accessories make sure you’re still a knock-out!

XO,

Jen

    A quick question…How should I launder white jeans? I used to have a pair and washing ended up making them look less than white…So any advice

    • Hi Leslie,

      Have you tried adding bleach to your wash when laundering them? That has made a world of difference for mine. I do find that white garments naturally have a shorter lifespan than their colored counterparts as they inevitably will yellow or gray over time. I just had to say goodbye to my favorite white alexander wang tee! If you haven’t tried bleach, though, do that before whisking them into retirement 😉

  3. Lovely outfit styling. Love the look of white on gray and a pop of neon. Red and stripes are a classic combination.
