Weekend Essentials

Hot summer weekends are right around the corner. And let’s face it: when it’s that hot out you need a no-muss, no-fuss, go-to outfit that will keep you cool while being stylish and cool. For me, that outfit is a super lightweight peplum top and casual denim shorts. Light wash denim is so quintessentially summer – and when you add a hint of distressing, you win! I couldn’t resist pairing my plus size jean shorts with this absolutely gorgeous, vibrant peplum.

Husband and I spent the afternoon at the park, chatting and watching the ducks swim by – and despite the temperature soaring above 90, I was perfectly comfortable in this look. To keep everything girly and springy, I snagged my new scalloped Kate Spade clutch. I’m in love with this bag! I kind of want to pair it with everything.

Before I go, I wanted to tell you about this lippie I’m obsessed with. It’s called Wifey by ColourPop. I’m wearing the lippie stick over the lippie pencil and it’s quickly turning into my favorite lip combo. The pinky-purple is surprisingly wearable and lasts for ages. The best part? The lip pencil and lipstick are $5 each! Such a steal!
