Fashion Friday: Weekend Neutrals

I find myself more and more sticking to a rather monochromatic palette so that I can spend more on single items knowing they will go with everything else I have/ am buying. Boring? Perhaps. But I feel most “chic and French” when in black, grey, white and tan. But I cannot live without denim. No way. I love pairing a fancy top with distressed jeans or popping on a denim jacket over a more formal dress. Here are three weekend looks that I want RIGHT NOW. Like, I’m serious. Right now.


Friday Night: top // jeans //  earrings // shoes // ring

Saturday Night: dress // clutch // jacket // heels // earrings

Sunday Funday: sweatshirt (**hilarious) // cut offs // bag // sneakers

Speaking of monochromatic…. check out my eBay find I just got back from the upholsterer!!!

  1. Whoaaaaaaaaaaa. I LOVE your chair. Super gorgeous. May I ask where you got that beauty upholstered? I just scored a sweet chair at a vintage shop in NH and I’m thinking of taking it to Zimmans (spelling?) in Lynn. But if you have a rec, I’m all ears. Thanks and Happy Almost Weekend.

  2. Love that chair! The new upholstery looks fantastic. Also – I too stick to neutrals all the time – not boring but classic, or at least I tell myself that. Can never go wrong with a black and white dress or a pair of Chuck Taylors. Have a great weekend.

  3. Regarding the chair: Wow! Amazing transformation! Love the juxtaposition of old/vintage and modern/bold. Great job!

  4. First of all, THAT CHAIR. Second of all, that Lord Voldemort sweatshirt is hysterical. I’d love each outfit, please!

  5. Always look forward to “Fashion Friday” … but that eye-popping chair! Fantastic!

  6. My 98 year old Grandmother has a pair of those same exact chairs. After seeing the transformation I’m going to call dibs on them.

  7. The chair is super! Can you let all of us who asked about the fabric..I have been searching for it for over a year! Thanks!

  8. Would you mind sharing the name of your upholsterer? I am new to Boston and would like to have a couch reupholstered. Thank you!
