Weekday Wardrobe: An Ode to Summer Fashions

On this weeks Weekday Wardrobe, a *new* weekly blog post intended to inspire your weekday fashions, I was inspired by the rustic colors of the end of Summer and beginning of Fall. The crisping air and early sun sets signal the end of the bright summer days. But of course, it’s difficult to let summer fashions go without a final wave goodbye. The following looks are a hybrid between chic summer street wear and early fall fashions.

 

MONDAY: Rough Around The Edges

TUESDAY: Sweet Tooth

WEDNESDAY: Modified Masculine

THURSDAY: Constructed Boho

FRIDAY: Rustic Cobalt

I hope these looks brought some inspiration to your weekday wardrobe selections!

Clutch: Thrift Store Find | Top: Buffalo by David Bitton | Wedges: Reaction by Kenneth Cole from TJ Maxx | Ring & Bracelet: Forever 21 |  Jeans: Target | Necklace: World Market 

After a long week there are two things I crave: good drinks and comfy clothes. Luckily, there is something so incredibly effortless about a bohemian style outfit. Relaxed, comfy and whimsical– it fit my mood for the night. The wonderful thing about boho style is that it is nearly impossible to mess up. Gladiator style sandals?– Check! Flowy top?– Check! Whimsical print?– Check! Congrats, you just successfully put together a boho look! Piece of cake, huh?

The one difficult thing about this outfit is the top. It is a low cut, oversized tank that works better as a coverup (one of which I never really wore). I have been dying to wear this out, but the only thing it pairs well with is jeans and leggings. Nonetheless, it is probably the MOST comfortable top I have ever worn out to dinner.

The leather, hand carved clutch is one of my high school thrift store finds that I recently found shoved in the back of my closet underneath my suitcase sized purses. It originally had short purse handles (not my fav) that I removed to create a cute, earthy styled clutch that thankfully fits all the essentials (phone, wallet, Mophie).

TGIF and enjoy the weekend!!

HTTR: My Day At Redskins Training Camp

 

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

During the summer, there is a delicate balance between finding an incredible experience and finding something that doesn’t break the bank. I’m sure you have wasted away multiple days at Six Flags or Kings Dominion thinking, “I’m just going to pay the entrance fee and won’t buy a thing so I can save my money“…….only to walk out $80.00 poorer and a stomach full of soggy chicken nuggets. Its okay, we’ve all been there, don’t feel bad!! As Summer comes to an end the list of affordable, worthwhile “To-Do’s” seems to be an impossible feat. Well, look no further! If you’re a true DMV resident and a part of the HTTR Nation, you are in luck! From July 24- August 11, the official Redskins Training Camp will be held at the Bon Secours Training Center in Richmond, VA…FOR FREE!! That’s right people, you can stare at the wonderfully chiseled athletic goodness of every NFL Redskin Player without paying a dime! Of course, growing up in a die-hard Redskin fan household, my families attendance to this event was almost implied.

Now, I’m not going to sit here and pretend to be the worlds coolest chick that knows everything about gel nail polish, baked goods and football all at the same time, because to be honest, I know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT SPORTS. Not that I’m saying that a girl can’t know everything about gel nail polish, baked goods and football– because I’m sure that mega-super-cool-sport-girly-chick-hybrid exists, I’m just not her.

Let me break this down for you, in middle school PE class I was single-handedly the reason why my team always lost in every game. I would literally run away from the ball every time it came within a 4 foot radius. But, I am happy to report that my trip to Redskins Training Camp was just as fulfilling for a non-sporty chick– my only complaint would be the 8:30AM start time..

I was shocked at the end of the two-hour practice how dedicated and loyal the players were to the fans. RGIII, along with many other players, literally walked right up to massive crowds of fans to  to sign and take pictures for a good 30 minutes. Ultimately, the cherry on top of a great day was when one of the players pulled a little boy onto the field with him and suited him up with football pads, helmet and all. Of course, the adorable little boy fell over with the weight of the pads and the crowd went hysterical.
