OOTD - Navy and White Weekend Basics


The weekend is over - why does Monday always seem to arrive so soon?  As someone who has to work a weekend a month as a part of a monthly rotation, I cherish my weekends off and strive to make the most of them.  This means a jammed packed Saturday and Sunday full of visiting friends, patio drinks, spending time with family, and dinners out - yes, this Noob leads a hard life!  I like my weekend outfits to be simple, consisting of basic pieces that effortlessly work together, coupled with a flat shoe or sandal - because let's face it, the world is a lot easier to navigate in flats after a few hours in the sun (or a few margaritas).  I wore this same outfit to a friend's birthday party, and it seems to fall well within my 'weekend uniform.'  Read on for additional photos and outfit deals.





Cropped White Denim - Old Navy, Navy Tube Top - Abercrombie and Fitch (old - similar)
Tote - Madewell, Sandal - Old Navy (similar), Scarf - Joe Fresh, Sunglasses - Ray Ban Clubmasters


I must sound like a broken record, but I can't help it - I absolutely love my Madewell transport tote!  The colour is the most perfect shade of english saddle, and it can fit absolutely everything - this day in particular, it housed a cardigan, a straw fedora and a bottle of wine for the host of the party with room to spare!  I like to change the tote's look by tying a different scarf around its handles - the scarves add versatility to the bag, and are good to have for a chilly summer night.


What's your weekend uniform?

  1. Those Ray-Ban Clubmasters look great on you!
    My weekend uniform in the summer typically consists of my bathing suit, haha. My family spends most weekends at our cottage by the lake, so if I'm not sunning, I'm swimming, and if I'm not swimming, I'm sunning. And if I'm doing neither of those, I probably still have my swimsuit on. C'est la vie!

    1. Votre vie est belle! Sounds incredible, I wish I could go about my summer life in a bathing suit - without being arrested for indecent exposure...

  2. I absolutely love this look! Navy and white is always classic and I am a sucker for cognac accessories right now... I have been eyeing that Madewell tote for a while. You may have just convinced me. Sharing my summer uniform over on my blog today. I am all about easy breezy! Except for when it comes to the shoes haha. Have a great day :)
