Weekend chic

As anyone who works a five day week can testify to, you learn to enjoy the weekends because you get to dress a little more casual or dressed up (depends on your liking). I’ll do both depending on who I’m meeting up with or doing. Last weekends outfit was a mix of both…I found these shorts at Buffalo Exchange and decided they were too cute to not buy. I’m finding a new love for shorts, which are a must in the Las Vegas summer. But I never seem to find a pair that fits well. So these were it for me.

I feel like I look like I just got off a motorcycle.

Shirt: vintage denim from Rose Bowl Flea. Shirt under: Yves Saint Laurent tee from Buffalo Exchange. Shorts: Dockers also from BE. Shoes: Fornarina from Fornarina on Melrose.

If you’ve ever been to Las Vegas in the summer you know the impending doom that is upon us – the heat. I’m actually reallllly dreading the heat, anxious even. It is just disgusting, like sticking your body in an oven. Avoid Las Vegas in the summer! The only plus are the beautiful desert thunderstorms and the warm nights.

    this is a great outfit!! I love the weekends! I usually dress up at the weekends- since on the week I go to college- and no one there dress up that much. they all throw on themselves a pair of ragged jeans and messy t shirt… so I dont wanna look odd and dress up too much

    weekends are for extremes, either get really bummy and hang out or get dressed up and show off! I'm an advocate of both!

  • Angela

    eli- thanks for your worry- about Las Vegas- i've been before in JULY and although an 'outsider' all expenses paid and incredible accomodation always chills the heat!! I couldn't live there or with an astro-turf lawn- but the trips are always fun!

  • Eli

    YES! being indoors in the Las Vegas summer with air conditioning is a must! Most ppl who come here have no clue, I sure didnt my first summer!
