what the !@$# do i wear wednesdays: water sportin’

watersportin

this what the !@$# Wednesday this week is for your sporty girls hitting the waves, lake, beach this summer but still want to look stylish.

you can wear a two piece just be sure the bottoms that have some coverage in the important areas, but you don’t have to wear a full on wetsuit.

one-pieces aren’t out either, they are very much in vogue right now and will definitely provide you with the coverage you need to be breaking a sweat out on the water.

brands like Billabong and Roxy (who just did an awesome collaboration with DVF) have complimentary and stylish accessories for the water sport including some shorts, and a wet suit hoodie.  neoprene is all over the fashion world right now you shouldn’t be hard up to find some cute and water sport inspired accessories such as this Kate Spade Neoprene Pouch to hide your goodies in.

a pair of cut offs will be good after a swim.

cute and comfy sandals for night time walks.

retro shades for photo ops.

a light sweater for a night cap.

needlehangout

alright most important for this week, what the !@$# do you wear to hangout festival? it really depends on if you’re staying near the festival or not. you can walk back your condo take a break, hydrate, and throw something on for mid-day and do the same for night time.

i suggest bringing mix and match suits, pieces you can layer, breathable pieces, and tons of fun accessories.

here is my take on some day to night options for you.

what the !@$# do i wear wednesdays: rainy days

rainydays

i do not know about you guys but this rain is killing me!? when will it stop?! i thought we were done with april showers?!

sure doesn’t make you want to get decked out for the day.

thought i’d do this wednesday’s post about how to dress rain chic. my go-to’s on a dreary day:

1. fashionable tunic

2. ponte pants (for you ladies in the office)

3. chic rain/rubber boots you can wear anywhere

4. a classic trench

5. umbrella small enough to toss into any bag

6. thin socks to keep your feet comfy and dry

7. nylon-esque tote

what the !@$# do i wear wednesdays: meet the parents

meettheparents

meeting the parents can be a big deal! (i guess depending on how much you like the person haha) but we know first impressions are everything. i put something together for two possible “meet the parent” scenarios.

this maxi dress is pretty versatile. you could dress this up or down depending on whether you will be going to a brunch, dinner on a patio, or even over for a family BBQ or dinner. be comfortable shoe wise, don’t be that girlfriend who can barely walk. a crossbody is perfect for your essentials to touch up but you’re also not lugging around a huge bag. dainty but fun earrings will keep you classy with some personality. bring a jacket or light sweater depending on where you are going.

i love this nautical striped jacket, i feel like you could also have some versatility with this. if you want to pair this with denim, try a neutral such as a gray or black to dress it up a bit. a black bag is classic for any occasion. again keep the heels simple and small, love these nude pumps. the mint colored earrings add to your neutral outfit. you could wear this to a dinner, family gathering, or a wine night with the family.
