Are you familiar with the word, “weekending”?  Here’s the Urban Dictionary’s definition:

To be participating in the activities generally associated with the weekend.  Such activities include going out with friends, watching television, procrastinating from unpleasant tasks, etc.  Antonym of Mondaying.

So, let’s get started and talk about what to wear when you are “weekending”!  My husband and I like to start the weekend off on Friday night going out to dinner or to a movie.  A pair of flared jeans, black pullover sweater, and Nike sneakers are perfect for movie night. Because the benefits of a blazer cannot be overstated, jeans and a t-shirt worn with a blazer are also perfect for a Friday date night.  Comfy and stylish!

For me, the perfect start to the weekend is lying around the house on Saturday morning reading a book or magazine and drinking coffee.  A red Vineyard and Vine long sleeve t-shirt worn with Nike leggings and UGG boots is the perfect look for a lazy weekend. And if you plan on running errands, be sure to add a monogramed baseball cap, a pair of Kate Spade earrings, and don’t forget your Fitbit!

Interested in joining me for a walk in the park?    Fitness style is the perfect look for strolling or a brisk walk.  A look I’m loving on our Pinterest board is black leggings with a white top and a mint jacket…all from Lululemon.  And for a pop of color, they added a pair of bright power-pink Nikes. The good news is you don’t have to sweat your style with TJ Maxx and Marshall’s selection of spring fitness wear!

Our favorite place to go to lunch after church is the Kimbell Art Museum Café. One way I like to combine my church style with museum lunching is by wearing neutrals.    One of my favorite spring neutrals is gray. From skirts to pantsuits….it’s the perfect complement to any art exhibit! An all-white pantsuit is always spot-on for church and art browsing!  Did I mention that visiting a museum makes me feel like I’m on vacation?

Speaking of vacations, there’s nothing like a short weekend trip to revive your soul.  Have you considered “weekending” in Southlake? I’m thinking a red, white, and blue ensemble would be perfect for dining and shopping at this all-American town square.  Think about wearing a red blazer….just add blue jeans, a white blouse, and sneakers. A red handbag will definitely add flair to your “all-American” weekending style!

 For a quick and luxurious weekend get-a-way, a trip to Dallas sounds perfect to me.  My fantasy Dallas weekend would include a night at the Ritz Carlton and visiting the Nasher Sculptor Garden. White jeans paired with a classic camel trench coat or cape is the perfect look for the Ritz and for taking a walk through the garden!  Any way you look at it…such a classy way to make an entrance!

Another classic look on our board is a pair of white jeans, black and white striped blouse, short black boots, and a mid-length black coat.  This classic style will take you from the museum to a fabulous restaurant. Sounds fancy, but first things first….who can meet me at The W’s rooftop bar?   

Whether you are weekending at home or a ritzy hotel, the whole idea is to relax and have fun….in a stylish way, of course!
