On a weekend away, I bring only my favourites, the most simple, the go-to confident inducing pieces. I pack neutrals, my best curve hugging jeans, my favourite trendy knit sweater or cardigan and I hit the town. The defining factors of my favourites are always CONFIDENCE AND COMFORT! I don’t want to think about putting an outfit together that works perfect on the weekend I just want to confident and comfortable. I want to go and be free from the critical puzzle-piecing my brain does all week. Relax into my favourite picks.
Clothing wise I always have my favourite jeans, a pair of Levi’s high-waisted dark wash, and a pair of black denim. On top I always have a baggy white t-shirt that can be worn with jeans or leggings. I can dress up or down using my blushing tassel earrings or just studs and a jean jacket. I always like to have a black and white stripe with me, and a blouse for a night out. It’s easy to accessorize these neutral outfits, and I know I feel good and look good. Add in my sparkle flats or mahogany booties, throw on a jean jacket and I’m ready to hit the town.
If I’m spending my weekend at the lake cabin, you’ll catch me wearing just leggings and an oversized plaid, which requires little to no packing – just pure pyjama bliss. On the more adventurous weekends though, you’ll find me in the city with my fiancé exploring around town. By day find me cozied up in an eclectic coffee shop wearing my pom pom scarf. Bustling families walk by as we sip slow, quietly read, enjoy fresh baked goods and savour silent moments. Then at night you’ll see me style up for date night with my blushing tassels and leather jacket.
A weekend away is what most of us need. Taking time to rest and explore new things is truly what living is all about. Make sure to take time for yourself instead of doing the 9 to 5 hustle till you drop. Pack that suitcase with your favourites, take a night out, try some new food, live your life authentically, and shop ethically to ensure you make a meaningful impactful.
