September Stylish Monday - Workin' for the Weekend!

On the second Monday of every month a group of style bloggers and I pick a theme, style an outfit based on that theme, and then do a link up together where you can join too!  This month's theme is "Weekend Wear".   We are sharing our outfits that we would wear on a typical weekend.

I do not work outside the home, so I'm probably the opposite of most women and I like to dress up on weekends instead of dressing down.  I wear grubs all week long therefore dressing up on weekends is a refreshing treat.  A normal weekend for us is that we typically stay home on Saturdays to get work done around the house, but Sundays are usually our "play days".  We live in the country and have to drive 45 minutes to church.  Since we are making the long drive, we usually make a full day of shopping and entertaining.

On this particular weekend it was my son's 30th birthday.  We went to church as usual, then shopping, and finally dinner back in our neck of the woods.  There is a farm about seven miles from our home, that has the ruins of an old barn which they converted into an outdoor stone-fired pizza restaurant.  It is absolutely breath-taking!  I don't want to share too many photos of the venue here, as I will most likely do a travel post on it soon, but here are a few photos of just me so you can see what I wore.

I wore an old dress from Stitch Fix so I was appropriately dressed for both church and fun.  The dress is a comfy, spandex-type material so it is super comfy.  I chose mint sneakers so I could comfortably walk all day long.

It is a faux-wrap dress with a belt and a bird pattern print.  At the end of this post I included a couple of old pictures from a previous blog post where I styled this dress with a jean jacket and heels.

Well, I have to at least show you the amazing pizza this place serves.  Does that look yummy or what?  Be sure to check back every Wednesday for when I do a travel post on this unique venue.

And now let's see what the rest of the ladies this month are wearing and  link up your outfits at the end of the post too!


Lucy - Lucy   I don’t really have a particular look for weekends...except that whatever I decide to wear must have some sort of fun or pizzazz to it.  Dressing sets my mood- and I definitely need me some good dopamine styling! So here I am in my favourite jeans...the sparkle does it all for lighting me up whether it’s doing the regular Saturday runs, meeting up with a friend, or even a date night.  This weekend leisure look is for running errands!


Joyous Styling   

A fun weekend look….

Florals are coming in strong for Fall! This blouse is so fabulous for $14.00! It can be worn casual or for business! I love it with my gold belt,and red denim jeans.


Shelbee - Shelbee on the Edge - My weekend wardrobe doesn’t differ much from my weekday wardrobe but I do opt for comfort above all things on the weekends. A fun tee shirt dress, sneakers, and a baseball cap is an easy combination for most of my weekend activities.


Suzanne - Ask Suzanne Bell - When the weekend comes, I like to throw on a comfortable easy outfit that can take me from running errands to watching the kids events – all in one. If it's hot, I'll always opt for a relaxed fitting maxi dress. Otherwise it's jeans or joggers like this pair by Electric Rose, paired with a tank, and ALWAYS a long cardigan. A weekend wardrobe essential (bonus for pockets!); I’m styling up long cardigans multiple ways, in today's Style Post.


Andy - Pearls and Pantsuits Since I have to dress up and show up for work during the week, the  weekend is my time to dress down and stay comfy, which usually means a casual dress and sneakers for running my errands and puttering around the house. Comfort is key!


Nicole - High Latitude Style - On weekends, I change my outfit several times a day. After breakfast in PJ and taking a shower, I put my old blue jeans on with a Tee, scarf or vest, to mow the lawn with a push mower or do some yard work. Then I change into a dress and sandals for shopping and running errands. In winter, shoveling the driveway, ice picking, and add a down coat and pom pom hat with gloves.  For shopping, tall boots and tights plus a down coat or shearling with matching scarf, gloves and hat. However, when going out for dancing on a weekend I wear one of my dance dresses like this velvet beauty.


Julie - Fashion Trends and Friends and Instagram FashionTandF -  Weekend dressing can be a mixed bag depending on what I’m up to and where we’re going.  I recently wore this look out to dinner and to see a band with my hubby on a date night.  If we’re staying home, I’m typically in something much more casual like shorts and a tee or sweatpants and a sweatshirt depending on our Illinois weather.


Nina - Sharing a Journey -Everything you need to know about having a wonderful fall weekend--what to wear, what to do and a great recipe to enjoy.


Emma - The Style Splash -.Comfort is key when it comes to weekend dressing for me. These loose-fitting trousers have an elasticated waistband so are super comfy, but it still looks like I’ve made the effort thanks to the leopard print. I live in trainers or flat sandals at weekends as I’m often shopping and running errands. 

And Me!

Amy - Amy’s Creative Pursuits - Weekends are all about church, family, and friends for me.  This is an outfit I wore both to church in the morning and then later in the evening for an outdoor dining experience with my family in the hills of Buffalo County.
Have a Great Day!  Amy

  1. Amy, I love this dress! What a beautiful color. And I do have a special fondness for bird prints. I really like that you wore mint sneakers with this dress, too. Such a cute look for church and then some after church fun! That pizza looks absolutely amazing. What a cool little restaurant.


    1. Thank you Shelbee. I am so drawn to bird prints too.

  2. Beautiful spot for pictures! I typically end up in my joggers on the weekend as I try to come up with fun outfits during the week.

  3. Goodness, that Pizza does look delicious! Reminds me a bit of my homemade pizza but of course I don't a brick/ stone oven!
    Your dress is beautiful and so perfect for church and a fun weekend day out! Love the v neck!

    1. The pizza is so good. I love the crust. Thanks so much.

  4. I love how you wore sneakers with the dress Amy!! And that pizza does look incredible.

  5. BTW, for some reason I didn't get your email this morning. And I even checked spam. Would you be able to check to see if is still active in your email list?? If not, I can always sign back up?

    1. I'm not sure what you mean by email. An email notification for a new blog post? I use to have Feedburner but they took it away. I think you have to re sign up now. There's a "Subscribe To" in the far right column.

  6. Your dress is so lovely and that sounds like such a nice day! Happy birthday to your son too :)

    Hope your week is off to a good start :)

  7. Amy, this is a lovely look. There isn't much difference between a weekday and a weekend day for me either and even so, I like to put together looks that can take me from shopping to getting together with friends.


  8. Amy!

    Your dress is darling on you and perfect for a Sunday of worship and fun! What a beautiful setting and country side!

  9. Looks like so much fun. Have a beautiful day.

  10. I tend to either dress up or down on the weekend depending on what we are doing. This is such a cute dress. I just got a new Stitch Fix box in this month after taking a 3 month break from them and while I didn't think I liked anything in the box; once I tried them on I ended up loving all the pieces!

    1. Same here! Thank you. Oh, that has been my experience with Stitch Fix too. That's probably why they tell us to be sure to try everything on.

  11. Love the color of your shoes and dress. Perfect weekend outfit for church and lunch. Thanks for linking at #WowOnWednesday

  12. Lovely dress and such a pretty color! That pizza looks so delicious.
