As the esteemed Mr. Rogers would say, yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. It was sunny in the mid 40s (which felt downright balmy) and the scent and sounds of spring were everywhere. I scooted out and took a nice long walk on my lunch break and soaked up as much vitamin D as I could. I ended up walking along the lake and was astounded at how other worldly the beaches looked covered in peaks of snow and ice. Unfortunately this was the only photo I was able to take before my camera battery died (insert forehead palm slap here) but in a way it’s fitting as there are a lot of exciting things on the horizon for me both personally and professionally.

what are you looking forward to?

An Edgy Ellen

Between the skinnies, my unseen sweater polo combo, and the sneakers I  felt like a edgy version of Ellen in this outfit. Not that I wouldn’t love to be Ellen, she’s got dance movies, a smokin hot wife, heck she’s a CoverGirl, but I was going for a  more of a casual Friday at the office followed by beers and wings with friends kind of look. Either way I like it. It’s comfortable, the weather is mild, and it’s almost the weekend so I’m happy.

What your Friday look?

A Look for Casual Friday

Sunnies: Charlotte Russe, Top: TJ Maxx, Belt: Goodwill, Skirt: Forever 21, Bar Ring & Earrings: Downtown Threads, Gem Ring: Gifted, Frye Boots, Socks: UO, Tights: The Sox MarketMy office has a pretty relaxed dress code (aka dress up for client meetings and wear what you want the rest of the time) so everyday is sort of like casual Friday in my world, but I don’t let that stop me from taking part in this “9 -5” fashion tradition.

In my mind the classic casual Friday look has three distinct elements: denim, a classic but comfortable top, and well loved footwear. Instead of going the traditional route and wearing jeans I mixed it up  and went with my faux denim pencil skirt. The high waisted skirt  with the low slung belt and cropped sweater give this look an unexpected twist while keeping it casual and comfortable.
