Over the weekend, the temps were just right to bust out my favorite boyfriend jeans. While they’re probably not winners with the boys, I happen to like the slouchy, casual vibe they give off — especially on low-key weekends. Add to that a lightweight, striped top and my go-to jacket as of late, and I’m out the door to run errands and catch up with friends.
P.S. How do you like my berry lip in today’s post? I’m really digging a darker lip for the cooler weather; find out more here.
I’m curious: Do you like wearing slouchy boyfriend jeans? Where’s your favorite place to buy them?

It never fails: When fall rolls around, my outfits become a bit edgier. I’ve had this spiked-shoulder top from Forever 21 in my closet for more than a year, unsure of how to wear it without looking too rough. I think using it as a vest is perfect. Once again, these Target shorts have proved more versatile than I ever thought, even pairing well with edgier pieces in my wardrobe.
So how was your weekend? For me, it was one of those perfect weekends: ideal weather, no set plans. New (free) patio furniture, movies galore, a new restaurant. All in all, it was a good weekend.

Well, Labor Day weekend has come and gone in a flash — as is usually the case with three-day weekends. How was yours? I spent Saturday with Liz going Target-hopping as we searched the local stores for a particular pair of sweatpants in a certain size. Talk about dedication. We ended up going to 13 Targets over the past five days. Other than obsessively checking Target, though, I did spend the weekend catching up with friends over brunch, barbecuing, swimming, reading — basically trying to soak up as much summer as possible before the real craving for fall begins.
Oh, wait. It already has.
This weekend was all about comfort while still looking like I cared about how I stepped out of the apartment, so for me, this means a good button-up blouse. My collection is quite extensive, and I usually put these on hold until the cooler months kick in. But I couldn’t wait, so I paired mine with the only denim shorts I wore all summer and a comfortable pair of metallic loafers.

We’ve had the perfect summer weather here in Omaha lately. Yesterday, the high only reached 72, and Liz, Jeni and I took advantage of the break in heat to catch Shakespeare on the Green (you can see pics on my Instagram). We packed a cooler full of cheese, crackers, olives, chocolate and wine and spent last night watching the complete works of Shakespeare (abridged). It was hilarious, and if you ever get the chance to experience something like that in your city, take advantage!
After tearing my last black maxi skirt and being without one for a couple of years, I finally found one at Target that was both inexpensive but well-fitting. Score! And Old Navy lately has been killing it in the graphic tee department.
I’ll see you on the flip side of the long weekend. Happy Independence Day!

It’s official: Gap makes the softest T-shirts ever. After a recent stop last weekend (that turned into a major sale try-on session), I walked away from the store with a number of cute, drape-y tops that I have been living in for the past few days. When paired with super soft leopard pants? The result is almost pajama-like — the daytime appropriate version, of course.
