Relaxed Weekender

Tuesday

I had a nice break away, and wanted to say thanks so much for your support and visits, they are truly appreciated. Stay tuned for special goodies coming soon to share with you in these next couple of weeks.

Sometimes on the weekend when a friend calls you for an impromptu meet up, you may not have it all together or feel like wearing work clothes, but there are still many ways to dress with ease and style. This was one of those times. My friend Zoë had a long layover, so we met for breakfast, and then went to a café for a proper catch up.

What was needed: a weekend ensemble that combined stylish comfort and easy elements to alter for a semi-rainy day. A very relaxed approach was also somewhat essential, since I had a previoius late night, so I decided to grab my safety style elements. A hat, scarf, and jersey knit—a hand-dyed dress suited the occasion perfectly!
It’s always nice to pull out old favourites from my closet, which includes this Calvin Klein jacket that has received plenty of wear over the past year or so, since the day I bought it. After modifying the daily beauty routine, I just grabbed a touch of mascara, bronzer, and a favourite lip colour to finish the look.

Everything in this outfit is from a charity shop, ethical fashion design, vintage, or handmade by me.
