Casual Friday

Paige Denim shorts | Michael Stars t-shirt | Galeries Lafayette scarf {bought in Paris, similar style} | Tory Burch leopard espadrilles {last season, similar style} | GiGi New York Uber clutch | Zayver Jewels cuff {similar style


Friday's are all about finishing off the work week and gearing up for the weekend.

Nothing says weekend ready like a pair of shorts, and these white boyfriend shorts are no exception. I love wearing as much white as possible during the summer because it goes perfect with a suntan! There's no better accessory than sun kissed skin. 

Another great accessory during the summer (and year round) is a lightweight scarf. Scarves are an easy and fun way to accent your outfit. I purchased this colorful scarf when I was in Paris in March and hadn't worn it yet. I was searching through my closet for a shirt to go with it and came across this comfortable and soft, Michael Stars tee. You could also pair it with a tank top or summer sweater, in colors ranging from white, to orange, or coral. 

I love mixing patterns, so I added the leopard print Tory Burch espadrilles to this look. Prints are a lot easier to mix than you may think. My rule of thumb is let one pattern be the bolder brighter print, while the other stays neutral. This will keep your outfit chic without looking like you're trying too hard. Another fun way to style patterns is mixing a nautical stripe shirt - think white and red or navy and white - with a floral print skirt. If that idea is a little too much for you, consider mixing a horizontal stripe top, with a vertical striped bottom.

Enjoy your weekend!
