A Couple of Weekend Casual Outfits

On Saturday, the "Core Four" Winesday Women met up for lunch. Winesday is a group of women who get together every 6-8 weeks. Everyone brings a bottle of wine and something yummy to eat, and we gab, drink and eat until the wee hours. It's a wonderful way to connect with the amazing women in my life. I treasure it.

Cat, Caro and Vero and I are the original four (or the Core Four). We get together a little more frequently, because when you have a bigger group, it's sometimes tougher to get a little one on one time.

The weather was lovely, so I went with my halter sundress and denim shirt (to keep my arms and chestular region from getting sunburnt):
My orange sandals are good for walking.

We sat out on the grass at a restaurant down by the water, from 1 pm until our husbands joined us at 4 pm.
Me and my gals. Aren't they beautiful? We're all enjoying a nice refreshing wheat beer.

Today (Sunday), L and I were supposed to meet friends for an early breakfast - they didn't show up (my guess is that they forgot it was Father's Day today) so L and I had breakfast on our own, which was fine. We don't have anything to do for Father's Day, since both of our dads are long dead.

I'd done a little thrift shopping on Saturday before meeting up with the gals, so I wore a couple of new items:
I've been looking for a new denim pencil skirt for ages; like Audi, I'm always trying to find one that isn't slit too high (why are they slit so high??). I fell in love with this acid-wash one! It even has gold embroidery and sparklies on the pockets.

Other than that, this is my usual weekend uniform of layered graphic tee. Check out the back of the skirt:
Sparkly pockets! The skirt was $7.99 at Value Village.

The shoes are also new to me: $14.99 at Value Village. They're by Stonefly, a brand I've never heard of, but they are super, super soft and comfy, and they were barely worn. I needed a good flat walking shoe, and this concrete grey is a great neutral.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Denim shirt (Mexx, consignment), yellow dress (no label, consignment), orange shoes (Rinaldi).

Striped tee (Majestic, gift from Caro), t-shirt (Leonard Cohen tour shirt), skirt (Cache, thrifted), shoe (Stonefly, thrifted), belt (gift from Ruth).

  1. Core Four - I need one! I love the outfit, too! I have been wearing long sleeves, too, when going outdoors - just because since my skin has thinned out, I get really itchy if exposed to too much sun!

    The pencil skirt is great. It really look great from the back, too!

  2. What a good looking bunch of ladies! Haha you looked great~ Your yellow dress is so flowy and wonderful.

    I love your new pencil skirt! Crazy awesome details for a great price. I couldn't find a black skirt that's "right" to save my life but somehow own THREE grey skirts.

  3. I've been looking for an A-line denim skirt for ages, and all I can find are pencil skirts! I wish I had the curves for the pencil skirt I own, and am very jealous of how well you pull off yours!

  9. Rebecca, you must have one - it's the best.

    I prefer to be covered up over sticky sunblock. Thanks so much!

    Megan, yes, I felt wonderful in the dress all day. Thanks! I'll be wearing the skirt again this week and showing the details more. Ha! I have way more black skirts.

    Cara, I have one! They are out there, don't give up.

    Thanks, Jane, please do!

    Thanks, Lorena!

    Lesa, they are the best. Thanks!

    Jean, yes, although they served it with wedges of orange. Ha, at this rate, you'll have all my good stuff. ;)

  11. I think I need to start scouring the thrift stores for a good denim skirt, because there seems to be a conspiracy amongst all the manufacturers who are producing them now. I love this one -- great detailing and a great fit!

  12. Audi, this is my 3rd thrifted denim skirt - hopefully, 3rd time's the charm! I'm still looking for a dark wash pencil skirt in denim. Thanks!
