Sometimes nothings better ( & cheaper) than taking a weekend to treat yourself in the comfort of the city you live in! Lexington has so many cool new things to offer and with it being summer, the options are endless! One thing is for sure though, your regular day-to-day outfits will need upgraded if your going to be "vacationing" of any type. That's one reason I picked up these AMAZING pants from Marine Layer. My go-to summer top has been this crop OTS from Urban Outfitters last year, which is unfortunately no longer available, but this similar top and this top thats not cropped are equally adorable and achieve the same kind of look (for the same price too)! From a morning stroll at the farmers market, to an afternoon spent shopping followed by dinner and cocktails, these pants will follow perfectly with any staycation activities you have planned! Jack and I are planning on enjoying a weekend in Lexington (around my work schedule) and you'll catch me in this fun get-up for sure.
Some of Mine and Jack's favorite things to do are discover new areas in Lexington for the weekend and have our own stay-cations. Of course I love to find a trendy outfit to wear so I can feel even more like I'm in a new city! We love starting the mornings with brunch at places with outdoor seating like Doodles or County Club, both using local flavors to make a great menu for everyone. Next maybe stop and get a drink at a local brewery and soak up some sun on the patio where I can get a little tan thanks to my off-the-shoulder top (bonus). Strolling around downtown Lexington to look at historical houses and then do some window-shopping out at The Summit at Fritz Farm help get in our steps and especially makes me feel like I've left Lexington for a little! Finally grabbing dinner out at the Distillery District with drinks at Elkhorn Tavern and some live music at the Burl! All the while staying fab and comfy in my staycation ensemble.
It can be so easy to stay in routine, but discovering new places in your own town will always give you new perspective and more fun! My staycation outfit is only complete with pink suede mules for a touch of fun and on-trend style (not to mention comfort). My staycation ootd lets me channel all of my wanna-be-on-vacation vibes thanks to the pop of pink, linen pants, and off-the-shoulder top thats perfect for a sunny day!
