Saturday night: What’s hotter than a leather mini? Julianne Hough‘s black skirt and chambray shirt combo is so effortlessly cool that it’s the perfect choice for casual cocktails with that guy you’ve been texting or a night out with friends. Get the look with this summer-friendly sleeveless top (only $17.80 from Forever 21) and Tinley Road’s vegan leather mini from Piperlime. Yea, its $79, but it’s so versatile (pair with a bright tank, crop top, white blazer, etc.) that it will become your new go-to piece of the season. To bring Julianne’s look home, add a pair of your favorite black ankle boots, and you’re ready to rock.
Brunch: Rompers are definitely girl-hot attire, so it’s best to test them out in front of a group of friends, not a group of dudes. Elizabeth Banks looks so summery and fresh in her rosebud printed onsie, which she pairs with bold-patterned wedges (mixing prints, another thing that only girls understand). Put your own spin on The Hunger Games star’s look with this pineapple print number ($22.80) from Forvever 21. If you’re not a fan of the fruit, we are also loving this floral option ($48) from Nasty Gal. As for footwear, if you’re feeeling bold and want to mix and match, try these funky wedges ($79) by Betsey Johnson. If you want to keep it a little more low-key, we’d choose something like this metallic pair ($117.95) by Vince Camuto.

Monday morning: If we got our hands on Naomie’s floral midi dress, we’d probably never take it off. It’s so chic and the bold floral pattern makes us want to throw a garden party (or go to a Polo match with Prince William just like she’s doing). Since everyone knows a good outfit makes Monday a bit more bearable, we translated the Bond Girl’s look into something you’ll proudly strut around the office in. This ASOS floral mini ($76.36) is covered up enough for work, but still makes a statement with the fun pattern and belted waist. For even more style points, take a page out of Naomie’s play book and top the look with yellow pumps. This Nine West pair is on sale!
