Street Walkers: Weekend Fashion Ideas

Woo-hoo! It's Friday! And for most of you that means two days of freedom from the 9-5 ball and chain. It's also a time where most of us get to express ourselves creatively through our fashions. I'm lucky enough to work at a place that allows me to be incredibly imaginative (I mean I wore a wide leg jumpsuit that looks like it came straight out of the 70's today!) but I thought I would give those less fortunate in the dress code department a few options for sprucing up their weekend wardrobe while hitting the streets.

Tanks & Jeans. Could there be a more perfect weekend uniform? I think not... Here Kate Bosworth and Jessica Szohr prove you can still be casual and chic while running errands on the weekend. Kate is working two major trends right now - tie dye and cargo skinnies. You'll remember that we discussed tie die back in April as a spring trend which is rolling into summer and possibly fall. And cargo skinnies have been popping up on celebrities left and right. Keep your accessories simple - bangles and a necklace for Kate - and you will be beyond comfy as you hit the market or pop into the bank. While strolling through the streets of Manhattan, Jessica looks like she could be taking a style cue from her alter ego - the BohoChic Vanessa Abrams on Gossip Girl. Love Love LOVE those moccasins she has on! She too is on trend - rocking white denim. If you aren't too sure about this - take a look at FabSugar's ideas for white denim. I recently purchased a pair of white jeans and am totally loving them! Keep cool by layering a few airy tanks. Both ladies added large roomy handbags that hold all your necessary items for a full day out. If you want on the go comfort - try out these options this weekend!

While these two looks are completely different - Malin Akerman and Reese Witherspoon know the key to an LA summer - layering. Malin, who strolled through Beverly Hills over the 4th, paired her tie dye caftan with skinny jeans and black boots. But the key to this outfit (besides her gorgeous eyes!) is her wrap sweater. It can easily be taken off if the temperature decides to sky rocket or you can keep cozy if you decide to step into an afternoon matinee. Versatility at it's finest people! Reese took a break from filming her newest film (and one of my favorite books) Water for Elephants and decided to run around LA looking fab! Her bright floral dress keeps her cool and comfy. She paired it with another upcoming fall trend - army green. We're seeing this color everywhere. From jackets like hers to pants like this, military styles are here to stay. Reese tops off the outfit with a pair of nude sandals, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and her summer staple - a neutral fedora. If you aren't feeling the army green - try throwing a jean jacket over your dress when you step out tomorrow. You'll love the refreshing look and you can break out an "oldie but a goodie"

Now here is an option that anyone can pull off. As you can see these two looks are extremely different with one common denominator: Floral tops and shorts. On the left, Jessica Alba took her adorable daughter out for a weekend trip to Trader Joe's. She paired a floral patterned top with tattered jean cutoffs and red combat boots. Jessica wore a similar look while strolling through Paris a few weeks ago. I love how the top might have a girly pattern, but the rest of her outfit is all edge. I'd also get a kick out of rocking boots like hers... maybe one day! Emmy Rossum decided to take the floral trend to a much sweeter note as she walked her dog. Her button down looks smashing with her pleated short shorts. Nude sandals and a luxurious gold necklace provide bits of glam. And I am swooning over her cobalt blue handbag. TDF!

Hopefully these ideas gave you gals some inspiration to rummage through your closet for some weekend glam. Let me know if it did! Have a fabulous weekend! xoxo
