Fashion Friday: Weekend Neutrals

I find myself more and more sticking to a rather monochromatic palette so that I can spend more on single items knowing they will go with everything else I have/ am buying. Boring? Perhaps. But I feel most “chic and French” when in black, grey, white and tan. But I cannot live without denim. No way. I love pairing a fancy top with distressed jeans or popping on a denim jacket over a more formal dress. Here are three weekend looks that I want RIGHT NOW. Like, I’m serious. Right now.


Friday Night: top // jeans //  earrings // shoes // ring

Saturday Night: dress // clutch // jacket // heels // earrings

Sunday Funday: sweatshirt (**hilarious) // cut offs // bag // sneakers

Speaking of monochromatic…. check out my eBay find I just got back from the upholsterer!!!

    Whoaaaaaaaaaaa. I LOVE your chair. Super gorgeous. May I ask where you got that beauty upholstered? I just scored a sweet chair at a vintage shop in NH and I’m thinking of taking it to Zimmans (spelling?) in Lynn. But if you have a rec, I’m all ears. Thanks and Happy Almost Weekend.

    Love that chair! The new upholstery looks fantastic. Also – I too stick to neutrals all the time – not boring but classic, or at least I tell myself that. Can never go wrong with a black and white dress or a pair of Chuck Taylors. Have a great weekend.

  22. Erin Gates says:

    It’s just solid ivory and black fabric! You have to have a skilled upholsterer sew together in this style.

    I want all those outfits – NOW. That “after” chair = swoon.

  29. [...] We’re still in that weird weather period where it’s super warm during the day but then drops to 60 at night. Before heading out the door, grabbing a jacket is imperative. I need to do some shopping soon for Boston’s jacket of choice: The jean jacket. Check out Emily’s casual weekend outfit idea for the jean jacket. Want to dress it up more? Erin of Elements of Style shows you how to wear it out on a Saturday night. [...]
