I’m sure you’re as ready for the weekend as I am! The fall weather in Atlanta couldn’t be more perfect right now. I hope it’s just as nice where you live. It goes without saying that the weekend calls for casual wear. That doesn’t mean you can’t dress casual without jeans though. I know all of you denim lovers are making ugly faces at me right now. LOL! But it’s true! There are alternatives you can look just as cute in! Some of my non-denim weekend favorites include: Maxi Skirts, Khakis and even Trousers. The key to making these items look casual is to dress them down. How do you do that? By swapping out items like blouses and cardigans with t-shirts and denim jackets!
For my look today, I shopped my closet. I’m a procrastinator so I haven’t done the due diligence of packing up my summer clothes just yet. Not only that, I have a cruise that I’m going on in November so I’m trying to hold off on packing for as long as I can. Lucky for me, I don’t usually pack up my trousers. Even though I work from home, I do go into the office from time to time. I also never know when I might need to wear trousers or khakis for a more dressy event. Anyway, I pulled out my Perfect Cotton-Stretch Ankle Pants from J. Jill and paired it with one of my favorite orange t-shirts. What pulled it all together was my distressed denim jacket from Zara and Tory Burch espadrilles.
Here’s my look:

Now this is an outfit I can easily walk around in to run errands. I could even meet up with friends for casual lunch or drinks!
How do you dress casual without jeans?
Until next time…
