Casual Fridays

TGIF – the weekend is near and if you’re ‘lucky’ enough to be able to dress casual on Friday at work then take full advantage of it. To me casual at work means having the option to wear jeans or boots, but making sure you add in sophisticated touches to still come off as professional.

Lately I am obsessing over these leather clutches by Clare V, there’s a great selection currently on Piperlime. I love the soft leather and the fact that these clutches are made in Los Angeles.casual fall outfit idea

Black and Pink

The color I wear the most – Black. The color I wear the least – Pink. I have blonde hair and blue eyes and there’s something about wearing that with pink that makes me feel like I’m trying to be too girly and have an obsession with Barbie. If I’m going to do pink, I need to ‘harden’ up the look with a dark color, and obviously the go-to is black. Yes, this outfit is still very girl with the floral print, however I don’t feel it is overdone. I could have paired this outfit with pink heels and a white purse and bright pink lips etc. and it would look/feel too dolly for me. work outfit idea

Fringed Jacket

Yes – it’s OK to plan an entire outfit around one article of clothing. This fringed leather jacket from Zara is amazing and I must have it! Such a great transitional piece for fall, don’t you agree?

It’s A Nice Day Out, I’m Going Window Shopping

Well, you can say you’re going window shopping but you’ll probably end up in a store or two if you’re shopping the right spots. I always tell myself “I’m just looking” and that lasts for about 30 minutes before I decide ‘oh just this one thing’. #shopaholism casual summer to fall outfit

Get Dressed and Go

I love getting dressed up, sure, but I also love having comfortable yet chic outfits that I can practically ‘throw on’ quickly and get head out for errands and other casual outings. I definitely have my go to ankle boots and skinny leggings or jeans that go with nearly everything and make picking out a top and accessories much easier. What pieces are your go-to’s?

Work It

It seems like it has been unusually cool this summer, especially for July, and I’m not complaining. If we can have more fall or spring like days than blistering hot summer days that’s fine by me. You can get away with bringing out some of your more fall pieces too as the weather permits it. This outfit reminds me of fall with the darker colors, but the materials are still light enough for the season.

Also I’m seriously obsessed with these Phillip Lim satchel bags. I already know this will be my next handbag purchase!
