Ah, it's finally the weekend. I try not to spend every day wishing for Friday, but this week dragged on and I couldn't help it. It's time to relax and unwind now. At least for a little while. This is done best when you're wearing your most comfortable clothes. That doesn't always imply a "lazy" outfit. You can be comfortable in stylish pieces, and that's what fall weekends are about. Sure, I'll be caught wearing my boyfriend's flannel, but tastefully. Something like this calls for black toothpick jeans, a statement necklace and booties. There, it's not an oversized, messy, worn down flannel anymore. That wasn't too hard, right? Right. So now it's your turn.

This weekend, like many fall weekends, is greyscale. I don't know about you, but I left my colors behind when summer ended. I've been wearing a lot of grey. Like a lot. Neutrals are great for this time of year because it's becoming grey and dark outside even during the day, so you may as well match that theme. Don't see it as sad and glum, embrace it.
Weekends make me think of four things: t-shirts, cardigans, leggings and sneakers. Your mind may not jump to the same place, but try and relate with me here. These pieces embody comfort, but (again, thanks to normcore) are super stylish this season. Simplicity is in, which makes "dressing up" for weekend days much easier because you essentially don't have to.
Weekends are also for glasses, painting your nails and fun hats. Give your hair a break and just throw it up and add a hat. Give your contacts a rest, too. Your eyes will thank you, plus glasses are great on everyone. A real complement to every face. You just have to find the right ones. Looking good is a matter of wearing what makes you feel good, so decide what does that for you and work from there.
Every party has a pooper, and here I am. Weekends are all about relaxing and fun. Spoken like the true "mom" of my friend group, I know. The moral of the story is to wear something that is stylish enough to go out and about in while you take time off from the stress of weekdays, but make sure you're comfortable enough to be productive, too. You don't want to save all your chores and work for Sunday. Believe me on that one.
Embrace greyscale weekend wear this weekend and throughout the rest of the month. It's not depressing to exclude color from your wardrobe, that's just a stigma. Be comfortable, have fun with your look and be productive. Most importantly, enjoy your weekend and stay tuned for sale updates and style reports for the week.
Dress for success even when you have nothing to do.
