We have casual Fridays at work – this can easily mean jeans and a t-shirt. But I’ve been trying to have a bit more fun than that – jeans still but kicked up a notch.
This is what I wore to work this past Friday. I also wore a jacket, because I get so cold, but I wanted to take this picture without it to give a general effect – layers of black are hard to photograph. The details get lost, at least for me and my camera phone. *laugh* It might help if I weren’t taking pictures in the bathroom mirror, right?
Y’all, I love these jeans. They’re by City Chic. I would highly recommend them if you can catch one of the last pairs there in a 28 – that’s what these are and I could have lived with a 26. I hate that they shrank their size range because they really DO have cute stuff. Seriously. I’ve had some luck with their XL tops – but that’s a whole other post.
Anyway. These jeans. Love.
This top is a piece of pre-pink Torrid ancient history. It’s held up remarkably well though I’m down to one button on the back of the neck. The sleeves, obvs, don’t provide much coverage so it’s not for the arm shy but I LOVE IT. And I love it for layering. It DOES show bra straps as well. Which, again, isn’t a problem for me. *grin*
The snap brim fedora has long resided in my closet (or, you know, on my head). I went out to a line dancing bar a week or so ago with some friends and had to dig out my cowboy hat; when I found that, I found the fedora as well. That’s three fedoras between me and my husband. *laugh* I like to wear hats. This hat certainly got a positive reaction.
I don’t have a picture of the jacket I wore from that day – but I do have this shot of the back of it.
This is a cropped tux jacket from Lane Bryant that I bought ages ago and never wore. So one night I decided I knew what to do to it – I added a ton of rhinestones in a skull and crossbones pattern. I wear the damn thing all the time now. *laugh*
It’s cropped and meant to be worn open so it’s easy to just throw on over things. I put rhinestones on the hankie pocket in the front as well. It’s just my kind of glam.
Casual Friday did mean no makeup other than lipstick – but a nice red lip is sometimes more than enough. I wear Ruby Woo from MAC on a pretty regular basis.
I also wore red boots – I have red Ariat stable boots (so massively comfortable) that were worth the trip to the western wear store, 100%.
Casual Friday doesn’t have to be about jeans and a t-shirt – though there is absolutely nothing wrong if it does mean that. It can be an opportunity, though, I think, to play around a little more than you usually would.
What are you wearing today?
