Have A {Fancy} Weekend!


I know I'm not alone in saying this, but I just love the weekends. It's a time when you can relax and unwind and get back in touch with yourself. Usually I tend to dress more casually on weekends, but every now and again I think it's fun to pull out all the stops and have a dressy day. There's something so nice about putting the effort into it when you don't HAVE to look that way. I find that since I have more time on the weekends that I'm able to put more thought into my outfits so the finished product can be that much nicer or more interesting.

Do you ever dress up on weekends or do you prefer to stay casual all the time.

Hope you all have a wonderful one! Any interesting plans?

Lovely pics as always.
I love to be casual at the weekend. But if I'm going somewhere special, it's also great having the time to really go "all out"!
Have a lovely weekend :-)

Debby said...

Gorgeous! You love of weekends is evident in your posts! I tend to be casual unless we are going into the city then I dress up a bit more. Have a great one, Dawn! xo

Ylenia said...

Saturday morning: recover from this evening dinner with colleagues

and, as this place is based in the 'shoe' area, north to Milan, I am going to have some shopping!! and b/f has already provided credit card! (dress up)
Sunday total relax (casual/sporty)

ciao!

Usually casual unless we're going out then I try to look a little nicer ha :)

hélène said...

Dawn! So good to hear from you! :) I hope all is well on your side!

I wish i appreciated weekends like most people, but they're probably the most dreaded part of the week for me (even though i do work all week!) lol That's pretty much due to the fact that i don't get to rest on them... I can't wait for the day where i can actually enjoy my weekends! But yes, i definitely dress down come sat/sun. Although i do enjoy dressing up for the office - and can get away with most things - sometimes i wish i worked in a more creative environment!

Hapy friday to you :) xxxx

Tanvi said...

I always dress up on at least one of the days over the weekend [usually Friday!] ... Have a good weekend!!! :)

Café Bellini said...

I love dressing up... If we're going out to a restaurant then I definitely will... any excuse to look nicer! But you're right, I shouldn't need a reason... well, that's what my handbags are for, I feel glam going to the supermarket with my (currently) Dior bag, for example haha :-)

Gina said...

i am totally looking foward to the weekend too!! saturday is going to be a fabuless lazy day for Rob & I. Then on sunday we are going for brunch & pumpkin picking w/ my girlfriend & her fiance.

I LOVE getting dressed up on a Saturday night!

Two weekends ago Rob and i went out to a nice dinner, at a restaurant called "four", i know you are in the city but maybe you've heard of it?

I got all dressed up & it felt wonderful ;)

i hope your weekend is just as lovely as you are.

Signe said...

Lovely pictures. And that closet in the second picture is practically made for my apartment!

Have a great weekend :)

Marie-Ève said...

I love dressing up! If I could, I would do it all the time. Well, not now, being so pregnant though. :-(

On weekends when we have something planned I like to do a mix, say dressy jeans with a very fancy top, jewelry, polished hair, etc.. And if we have a real party, I go all out!

Nikki said...

I think I actually put more thought into my outfits on the weekends than during the week (maybe cause I work from home)!?!!?
I love all these images.
No plans yet, other than staying local, shopping and eating.

Fabulous pics. Happy weekend Dawn!

relaxed days...dressed up night!
Have a great one!!!

A.Co said...

I agree, dressing up on weekends when you don't HAVE to, is almost better. You can rock stuff you wouldn't or couldn't wear to work.. it's just different.

I definitely take advantage of dressing casual on weekends but relish in the opportunity to dress up on a Saturday night.

What a beautiful post! Love it! And I love dressy days too. Actually, I have a hard time dressing down because I love to dress up so much! Have a fab weekend doll!

I find that I'm dressing up everyday. Even when it's more casual...I still try to make it interesting. But early morning dog walking is SUPER lazy in pjs and uggs--undercover!haha
Have a WONDERFUL weekend babe!

Nell said...

I definitely dress up more at the weekend. I mean, I'm still pretty casual but I wear more jewellery and pretty tops. I'm so so bothered at work, but I like to look like I've made an effort (a bit at least!) when I'm out with my guy!
ps. How beautiful is Anouck?!
