happy friday to all of you. lord knows it has been one hell of a week over in these parts and i could not be more grateful for this three day weekend (and to not have to wake up to the sound of an alarm for the next few days).
anyway, i do not know if any of you can relate but in looking at pictures of myself (both on the gram and just in general), i have noticed some patterns in what i tend to have on. it is as if i have a weekend uniform. to give you some background, i wore a uniform to school every single day from 1992 to 2007 so perhaps this is why as an adult who has actual choices, i will purchase the same article of clothing in a variety of colors and switch up an accessory, a shoe or an outer layer of clothing.
for the last year, i have been incredibly into t-shirt dresses, cardigans or denim shirts (as a first outer layer) and a faux fur vest or army cargo jacket (as a second outside layer). weather dependent, i could be rocking a gladiator, a converse or a bootie. i would say the two retailers that get the bulk of my coins are nordstrom and asos. the third is forever a rotation between forever 21, target, torrid and cute little boutiques (my favorite one being ibiss in the willow glen neighborhood of san jose, ca).

this exact t-shirt dress from asos is sold out but here are a couple others like it:
my cardigan is from forever 21 – i also have it in oxblood. here is one that is similar.
my cargo jacket is from nordstrom – i copped it during the anniversary sale for like, $80 – here is one similar (mine has coral stitching instead of red stitching but it is by the same brand).
*all three of the aforementioned retailers carry sizes 0 to 3x – i will do my best to post places that are size inclusive.
and you can find a classic pair of converse virtually anywhere – mine are pretty beat up from countless music festivals and shows, but that is why i love them.
do you have a weekend uniform? if so, what is it? let me know in the comments below.
cheers to the weekend!
