Happy Friday, you!! I am sharing a Friday casual outfit with you today, quite unlike my usual office wardrobe outfits!
But before that – what are your plans this weekend? Doing anything fun? I am spending time with family and WORKING OUT. Yes, exercising has definitely been on my mind lately. I blogged about how to stay healthy in the corporate office lifestyle here, and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen a lot more sporty/athleisure type of outfits and accessories. For example….
THESE SNEAKERS. Can we just take a collective moment of silence in honor of how GORGEOUS they are?
Anyhow… moving onto the outfit.
It was easy putting this outfit together, because the top basically speaks for itself. I just paired it with neutral and “quiet” type of pieces so they don’t compete with the top.
I’ve always believed in keeping a “Monday outfit” edge in casual Friday outfits. If you work in a relatively traditional and conservative environment, even if it’s Casual Friday, it doesn’t mean you should show up in ripped jeans and see-through or sequin tops.
The truth is, even on Fridays you are building an image, a reputation even, amongst your peers, your superiors, and your inferiors. It’s okay to be more comfortable and laid back, but being respectable and put-together should still be a priority.
Ok, the half-tucked-shirt trend may be a bit much if you are REALLY going to the office now. But I thought for the photos I would throw it in to make the ensemble a bit more interesting. Tuck it in otherwise!
This top was purchased from the outlet website of Saks Fifth Avenue, Off Fifth (all inked below). In my opinion, it’s one of the most underrated websites to shop at. They have a ton of designer stuff at heavily discounted prices, you just might be surprised!
What’s your casual Friday outfit principle? Do you have any? Share with me below!
