Retreat Outfit

Super casual outfit that I wore on a retreat this weekend.  I usually don't post the outfits I wear on retreats because they're either repeats or just jeans and a tee of some sort, but two of my friends complimented this outfit and I was intrigued.  (Plus I felt awesome, because who doesn't like compliments?  :P )  I was intrigued because I wore this exact tee and necklace with my dark rinse LOFT jeans two days prior (because I'm dirty like that) and didn't have anyone comment on my outfit.  But with maroon jeans?  Bring on the compliments!  Haha.  I suppose I'm so used to colored bottoms now that I still underestimate the power of them.  Soooo, if you haven't gotten on board yet, I highly recommend it!  That is...if you like compliments.  ;)

ALSOOOOOO, a handful of you have commented on this necklace and I'm really freaking excited to tell you that Chrysalis found what appears to be the exact same necklace at Target!  Albeit, over twice the price I paid at Forever 21, haha.  But obviously from how often I wear it, I really, really love it!

Target tip of the day:  When you view the item online, use the "find in a store" feature to see which of your local Targets has it in stock.  It pains me when I hear of you guys driving around to 3 different Targets to find something.  Use the "find in a store" feature and save time and gas money!

  1. Great casual look Audrey. I love burgundy jeans. I have a pair that i absolutely love.



  2. This is my favorite look for the weekend. Colored jeans and a tee is a great casual look!

  3. Great finds. I agree with you about colored jeans- it makes it so easy to make a basic jeans & t shirt look just a little more current and compliment-worthy. I use "find in store" at Target often and one thing I've found is that when the item says "limited quantity" it's best to call the store first because they may or may not have it. It's kind of hassle but better than driving from store to store!

  4. So cute! I got a grey lace tee at Goodwill this weekend and also have some maroon pants, so thanks for the great inspiration!

  5. So cute! Such a relaxed look. I recently purchased a plum colored pair of jeans and can't wait to wear them.

  6. That is a great idea! Whenever I find an item I really like I'll look for it on amazon if i can't find it online. Your necklace is very pretty and I love the maroon jeans! Thank you for calling them maroon and not oxblood. Oxblood sounds gross.

    Cool outfit and LOVE the necklace!! I think I'm going to have to break down and get one, even though I'll only get to wear it on date nights since I have a 7-month old baby...

  8. That is such a cool necklace! Most of my jewelry is from F21 and I love it because it is so cheap, but the stock just changes so fast :( Anyway, such a great option from Target. And what it is it about colored jeans? They pretty much make every outfit better!

  9. I think you make a really good point with getting so used to colored pants that you end up underestimating them. This is a really good look, regardless of whether it's casual or not!

  10. I love the color of those jeans!

  12. I think grey and maroon is a lovely colour combination - that's why you got so many compliments :) Such a nice comfortable outfit :)

  13. I love this color combination! I am searching for a great pair of mustard colored pants for fall! I love colored bottoms! You look great! Susan

  14. loving this casual outfit! the light grey is perfect with the burgundy jeans and the TOMS top it off perfectly. I liked seeing you share such a perfect weekend outfit :)
