casual

What makes Friday better? A casual Friday! Some days you simply need to be comfortable…this outfit is it for me. It would make a great weekend day look also if you’re running errands.

Boyfriend jeans have become my friend since injuring my back. They don’t pull on it like skinny jeans can and the waistband doesn’t add pressure to the lower back. I also love that a quick change to heels or booties take them from day to night. For this day look I added snakeskin patterned slip-on sneakers. A little style but a lot of comfort! All you need is a t-shirt to finish it off and it’s ready to go.

heels

I’m not a huge shorts person…I struggle with how they look on me. I like styles that hit at my knee. I feel like they’re not really a short and they aren’t jeans either! But, I don’t want them to look matronly. This second-hand find from a consignment store are my favorites! I’m not sure what I will do when they completely wear out. Right now they are at the perfect stage of “broken in” and are soft and comfortable.

I’ve been slowing playing with adding heels back into my wardrobe, although on a much more restrained basis than in my past. I think pairing a cool pair of summer heels to this outfit really makes it stand out. I could easily throw on a black boyfriend jacket or a long cardigan and wear this to work. You can’t go wrong with a comfortable graphic t-shirt either. You feel good and it adds interest.

I accessorized this look with a red leather tote which doubles as a crossbody and a favorite pair of earrings. For a work look this could be really cool with a great oversized clutch as well.

In my opinion Summer is just hitting it’s stride…I love the bright blue hot days of August! We have been working on a roof deck for a good part of the Summer and it’s down to the end so I’m using it today for a few shots.

This midi skirt is a perforated black faux leather. It drapes really well and has a good solid liner. This is going to be one I can wear year-round. I’m picturing it with socks and a chunky sweater in the Fall but for today I kept it simple with a tank top. I would wear this with anything from sneakers to boots. Here I choose a pair of platform black boots but during the day I would wear with a pair of flat boots. This skirt would also look great with a cropped shirt. I tossed on a vintage scarf for a little pattern and added color. I love how comfortable this skirt is! I keep the jewelry really simple…that is what Summer is about, right?!
