Simplicity at its finest

This weekend included attending a birthday/going-to-college bonfire for one of my friends, seeing the new Bourne movie, doing some birthday prep for the birthdays coming up this week (both mine and my mom’s) and enjoying the cooler weather. I badly want to save my warmer clothes for when I actually need them, but I can’t help wearing them in anticipation of fall. Here’s the breakdown:

Cardigan: LOFT via Garage sale (love this version)
Blouse: Banana Republic via Goodwill (similar)
Denim: Elle via Kohl’s
Wedges: Lauren Ralph Lauren via Garage sale (almost identical here on super sale)
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Necklaces/Earrings: Gifts (similar fleur necklace here, similar bow necklace here)

This look says weekend to me. I love spending weekends in comfortable and stretchy denim, slouchy cardigans and loose blouses that remind me of artists’ smocks. This truly is simplicity at its finest, but the different textures, patterns and touches of delicate jewelry make it interesting.
