Friday is one of my favorites.  How about you? I thought so.  It's hard to argue with any chance to relax, recharge and rejuvenate, isn't it?  Well of course we need some simple yet chic pieces that provide the look of effortless style while we are enjoying ourselves on the weekend.  I think that these pieces do that so well.  

My number one rule for creating any look is to keep it simple.  I've found that this nugget of wisdom seems to really apply to all facets of my life.  Things go oh-so-well whenever I do that.  So, how does that translate into creating a styled look?  Simply by keeping your color scheme at a minimum and gravitating towards updated classics that enhance and flatter your body.  Clothes will speak for themselves if you let them and any extra volume you may want to add can be easily achieved via your well-chosen accessories.  

A timeless piece is where I always like to start.  This black turtleneck fits that criteria perfectly.  Not only will it be what I reach for again and again whenever I'm dressing down, but it is also something that I will pull when I am putting together a classic slightly more elevated look.  That is something I can get into with you another day but for now, let's keep putting together this easy weekend chic outfit.

These jeans are one of my favorite relaxed pairs.  I love them again with this turtleneck and these low top leather trainers.  Never to be without my sunglasses, this pair is one of my new favorites.  They are completely classic and therefore timeless which makes them the perfect choice for a look like this one.  Fall weekends are hat required days and this caramel one is such a great choice.  Its gorgeous color makes it fall-ready and it will also be a beautiful choice with other autumn neutrals (think cream, caramel, navy, gray and so on...).  

Now, this bag is Tory Burch's latest addition to the shoulder bag collection.  It is everyyyyything.  I mean the color is beautiful, the gold hardware is its perfect complement and the size is exactly what I want for fun on the weekend.  Yes, you guessed it, I'm obsessed.

Last, but surely not least, I always like to punch up my look with a great piece of statement jewelry.  These two rings (here and here) are a bit of an investment but if you love them and you adore gold like I do then they are certainly well worth it.  They are something you will wear all the time and definitely get your money's worth out of them.  Yes, you guessed correctly again, I do love them.

And that's it.  It's really as simple as that.  Acquire a few classic pieces you love and that you know look amazing on you and you can style any fabulous look from there.  Hope you love them as much as I do.  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend doing the things you adore!
