Not only is today Friday, it’s First Friday here in Lancaster. For us that means popping in and out of restaurants, strolling art galleries and reconnecting. The city streets will be bustling with friends and visitors roaming our city. So, today I decided to show off a Friday night outfit rather than what you will run into me in during the day.

Animal print never goes out of style and I particularly like the light background of this leopard shrug. I’m letting it take center stage by keeping everything else fairly simple…a black v-neck sweater paired with skinny dark wash jeans. These jeans are one of my favorites. They are so comfortable, fit beautifully and because they are a dark wash, they can easily dress up an outfit. The oversized clutch in green adds a punch of color and is a nice contrast to the other basics. I chose a pair of jeweled stud earrings because they pick up some of the green tone and complimented the vintage shrug. Stacked bracelets and rings in gold finished out my accessories. I’m working my way back into heels after my back injury but keeping them just for going out right now! The Dior black leather pointy-toed heels are the perfect ending to this outfit.

The Labor Day holiday weekend is right around the corner! It marks the official end of Summer which always makes me a little sad because I love the warm weather. The mornings recently are starting to feel a little like fall since they are cooler. So, for early morning appointments and meetings I’m tossing on a pair of distressed jeans. These are nice because they are more tapered and are not too baggy but still comfortable. I dressed them up a bit with a sheer button-up blouse and stunning black heels. Normally I would tend more toward cool tones and silver for my accents with this type of outfit but today I decided to lean toward gold. The large bracelets were my grandmothers and still look current today! A few vintage cocktails rings and long earrings play nicely with the vintage leopard trimmed clutch.

I’m hoping to find some yummy PA peaches at Market along with some saucy BBQ baked beans and corn to add to my holiday weekend meals. I hope your weekend is filled with friends and family and a few treats here and there as well!
