My Weekend Uniform

Lip color, Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry; necklace, Lulu Frost (old; similar here and here); sweatshirt, Ann Taylor (on sale!; plus I also love the similar one here); jeans, Rag & Bone (on sale!); boots, Jimmy Choo (similar--and much less expensive!--here and here)

It's been ages since I've done an outfit post! And while this one doesn't show a groundbreaking combo, I know, it's very indicative of what you'll find me in on a weekend. It's essentially my Saturday/Sunday uniform: simple top (I'm obsessssssed with this fitted Ann Taylor sweatshirt), statement necklace, dark skinny jeans (I basically live in these Rag & Bones, if I'm being totally honest--they're the best-fitting, all-time most-flattering pair), and black moto boots.

Let's talk about these boots for a minute, actually. I got them last year as a gift and promptly wore them for probably 99 percent of the days between October and March. They are the BEST BOOTS EVER. They're cool-looking, warm (the inside is lined in fur--they're basically super fancy Uggs), comfy as hell, and flattering. (I don't know what it is about them, but they always make my legs look way thinner than they really are. So yes--I am in love with them.)

But here's the thing: They are very expensive. Like insanely expensive. (Again, I did not buy mine myself!) If you can swing it, I say go for it--you'll wear them constantly. Otherwise, I've found a few very similar options (see below) for a much more down-to-earth price. Wear them, love them, live in them--any day of the week.

Do you have a weekend uniform? What does it consist of? I'd love to know!
