Weekender

Greetings, all! TGIF 🙂

As we head into the weekend, I wanted to share a hand-picked outfit rooted in one of my favorite colors – yellow. The bright hue never fails to put me in a good mood. Try out this polished look for a happy hour and/or night out with friends. Between a peplum waist, pointed-toe pumps and slimming jeans (these J Brand’s are the BEST – I have two pairs!), these pieces create an elongated, feminine silhouette that’s especially flattering.

Cheers to a great weekend!

Happy weekend everyone – hope your Saturday is off to a great start! As we get ready for fall, find ways to transition your favorite summer pieces into autumn-wear that’s functional and stylish.
