recipes for a stylish weekend.

Over the weekend, I noticed a little trend in my wardrobe: I paired a button down with stud earrings on two separate occasions. Though I "talk" a big game with Friday's Fancies, my weekend outfits are usually focused on something easy and comfortable. With that in mind, I decided to pull together four different combinations for weekends to come...

bottom left: Madewell Dotted Chambray Boyshirt + Loren Hope Neon Sophia Studs
top right: Madewell Penfield Haverhill Flannel Shirt + Kate Spade Skinny Mini Bow Stud Earrings
bottom right: Mossimo Button Down Blouse + Bauble Bar Ebony Sun Studs

Though I don't own any of these goodies, this planning will help me plot out future outfits with pieces already in my wardrobe. I know button downs aren't always the portrait of fashion, but they work beautifully under vests and sweaters as I endure another brisk fall in New England. I love pairing fun studs with them because they add just enough flair without going over the top.

  2. LOVE these combinations! Especially the first one. For the weekend I love a good cargo vest and striped shirt underneath. Just wore that last weekend, and it's on my blog today! :)

  11. Love it! I always opt for simple and casual weekend looks and fun stud earrings are a perfect no-fuss accessory to pull everything together. Since it's still super warm in FL, white denim shorts are always a part of my outfit recipe!

  13. I love all these combos. I just bought a plaid shirt yesterday and I can't wait to wear it with cozy sweater this fall. Also, I don't even remember the last time I wore stud earrings! I used to think I had big ears so I refused to wear them because I was convinced they made my ears look even bigger. I'm not sure I even own a pair now!!

  14. Casual looks, like flannels, are my go-to weekend wear. I love cozy sweaters, too! I find it best to keep it simple and not over-accessorize. The less, the better, so your picks are perfect!

  17. Perfect picks. I usually keep it simple when I'm not hiking, working on the or snowboarding (during the winter).

  18. I have that Madewell/Penfield flannel - it is one of the most comfortable shirts I own and the heavier (but not too heavy) weight is perfect for the fall with a vest or a light jacket. Nothing better than an easy button down :)

  19. For me my favorite "recipes" usually consist of skinny jeans, a long tunic/sweater, scarves, boots & a lot of bracelets ... lots of layers :)

  22. Your recipes are right up my alley! I'm all about comfort as well. But of course that doesn't mean that comfortable means drab!
    Great looks & pairings.
    Isn’t That Charming.

  25. Ha, thank you for your honesty! Four out of the five days during the workweek, you can find me in a cardigan and ballet flats - there's nothing wrong with a go-to uniform!
