Sunday Switch Up
Some Sundays are reserved for a casual workout, meal prep, planning the week ahead, running errands and mentally preparing for a dreaded Monday. Lately, my Sundays are all about skipping that morning workout class, lying in bed two hours too long and neglecting any adult responsibilities that may fall on me. I’ve even made a stand and no longer check my emails on a Sunday (I live dangerously). I’ve never been the party type and to me, there is nothing worse than lying in bed missing out on some Vitamin D and spending the best part of a day lying in bed feeling less than great. For me, Summer Sundays were made for pretty skirts, casual tank tops, adventures, good food and well as shown in these photos I apparently also reserve Sundays for frolicking in some greenery? I find it fascinating how people spend their weekends, because to most, weekends and days off can be such a highly anticipated time. It’s a reflection of how people CHOSE to spend precious time that is solely their own. Time that is not given to a company, business or job role. How someone spends their Sundays can tell a lot about someone’s personality and of course there is no right or wrong way to spend your time.
So how do you choose to spend your Sunday?
The Sunday Style
A typical Sunday for me is usually quiet casual so my wardrobe is a reflection of that. I love big floppy hats that disguise the fact that my hair is due for a wash. This particular one I picked up from a stall in Venice Beach, CA 3 years ago. I then proceeded to buy another three last year for friends who fell in love with it just like I did.
This tank is Jack+Jack, I love this brand for casual and basic items as there notoriously known for effortless luxury. A higher price point for basics, however I find the quality of their garments unmeasurable. This particular tank is 100% linen which makes it incredibly breathable, it falls and sculpts the body in the most flattering way.
This skirt is Tibi from Net-a-Porter (currently on sale for 30% off!) in this chic sand colour it is the perfect neutral tone. It sits perfectly on the waist adding some shape and I like to tie my waist band in a bow at the back for a hint of playful femininity. This skirt falls so elegantly but being 100% cotton it balances the garment making it a casual toned down piece. The material tends to crease easily which of course it part of the design so it’s a bonus I can skip any steaming or ironing because it all adds to that Sunday casual chic vibe!
Shoes.. what shoes? I was feeling very boho gyspy for this photo but I would normally team this look with some simple neutral sandals to tie the look together.
Accessories I kept to a minimum with Ellery sunglasses. Tortoise shell and cat eye frames = winning combination that flatter so many different face shapes and looks.
Gold toned upper arm cuff and long pendant are both from Lovisa. I love finding bargain fashion jewellery that looks expensive and I believe these two items complete the look perfectly, it adds to the casual chic but gives it a boho twist.
