Weekend Style

I was having a conversation with a girlfriend the other day about the dichotomies that can exist within someone's personal style.  We both agreed that as much as we love to get dressed up in pretty feminine looks, there's also a big part of us that would easily prefer a pair of comfortable jeans & sneakers most days of the week.  Even though I have a lot of fun showcasing more polished outfits here on the blog, I would never want to give you all the impression that I'm dressed to the nines 24/7, because that simply isn't the case. 

When we're spending time together as a family on the weekends, we do a lot of outdoor activities so it's important for me to have a good amount of casual pieces in my closet that I can rotate through.  My daughter just got a new bike last week & I couldn't resist borrowing it for the afternoon...little did I know how difficult it would be to take pictures of me on it!  My husband kept giving me instructions like "go slower" and "ride in a straight line", neither of which could I successfully accomplish - apparently, my biking skills need some work.

I love lightweight pullovers for this time of year because there's often a cool breeze that comes off the water and, once the sun goes down, it can get a little chilly in the evenings.  This neutral striped knit is from a new-to-me site that I just discovered called Vici Collection (not sponsored - just wanted to share!).  I've ordered a few pieces from them (including this dress & this top) and everything has been amazing.  They have regular sales so be sure to either follow them on Instagram or sign up for their emails - they also restock regularly so if an item is sold out in your size, you can sign up to be notified when it becomes available again.  Note: they currently only offer store credit for returns so I recommend selecting items carefully.

What I'm wearing:
Vici Collection Striped Pullover, Express Jeans (similar here or here),
