Happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful week and that you escaped getting pinched yesterday. I know that green isn’t a color that everyone embraces, but when it is St. Patrick’s Day, you have to add a smidge of green or suffer the consequences. Lol! Joe barely wore green; he wore his work pants that happened to be Loden green. I doubt if anyone tried to pinch him, though. Hahaha

Usually, I post casual styles of Saturday, but I thought a Casual Friday post was appropriate also. I know a lot of workplaces will relax their clothing rules and allow you to dress more casually. Casual styles are usually way more comfortable, so I don’t know why more companies don’t adopt this policy. I understand that they might not want jeans with holes or graphic tees that express political, religious, or controversial views, especially if you are dealing with the public. But, chinos and jeans with a casual top can be a nice look and work-appropriate.

Shirred Henley Blouse would be great worn with anything in your closet. It can be dressed up or down, and I think it would look adorable with shorts and a skirt. The blouse is thin, but it isn’t see-through, but don’t wear a black bra. Lol! I always wear nude undergarments, so I don’t have to worry about them showing through my clothing. I’m wearing a medium, and the top is plenty roomy enough for me. Sizing is getting limited, though, so good luck grabbing your size. Here are a few others that you might like, just in case your size is sold out in this one.


ivory faux-leather handbag the last time I posted about it! I understand why since it is a great neutral color, had a unique detail with the chain, and the price was under $60. This color might not be available, but a gorgeous chestnut brown is, and you can carry that color all year round.

I’m wearing a pair of Slim Chinos in Seaside Sand. I cuffed the chinos so that you could see the shoes, but I would wear them uncuffed most of the time. I love chinos; they are casual looking and comfortable also. They are a cooler material than jeans, so I reach for them more in the summer months. These chinos come in several colors, so check out all of them. I am wearing a size 8, but they still look a tad big. What do you think?

Platform shoes are trending this year, so I thought I would try a couple of pairs to see if I could find some I like. So far, I like this Kork-Ease pair, but I’m not wild about the style, so I think I’ll try a couple of other styles to see if I can find one I like better. I do like the woodgrain heel and the leather color, but I don’t think this is the style that I want. They do run TTS, and I’m wearing my usual size 9. Here are some others that I’m thinking about.

What if you don’t like chinos? Then, I have another option that you might like. I switched out my handbag, pants, and shoes to create another casual look.

I kept on the same jewelry, and these are pieces that I wear all of the time. My Large Hoop Earrings are one of the first things I ever bought from Kendra Scott, and they are probably two years old. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth from them. I also wear my 18 Kt. Gold Vermeil Cross daily, and I hardly ever take it off. Next, I have on the Maggie Bangle Bracelet and my David Yurman Cable Loop Bracelet.

Like the Chinos, these jeans are cuffed so that you can see my cute pointy-toe shoes. The Monogrammed Coach shoes are slingbacks, and I prefer these over slides since I don’t have to worry about them flying off my feet. I like the neutral color and the gold bead detail that runs along the soles. I promise these will look better on me once I have my summer (faux) tan. These run TTS, and I’m wearing a size 9.

The Everyday Relaxed Jeans are in a light wash called Sea Breeze. In the summer months, I like wearing light wash jeans. Light wash jeans are more casual, and dark wash jeans are dressier. Summer seems like a casual time, so I will pick the lighter washes often. There is also a medium wash color and a dark wash color for those who are not a fan of the lighter washes. I’m wearing a size 8, which is what I usually wear in Talbots jeans; however, since these are relaxed jeans, I needed to have gotten a size 6 instead.

I hope you have a fun weekend planned. I’m not doing anything fun, but I might make Joe take me out to eat Saturday night. We tried an excellent restaurant called The Tavern, and the food was INCREDIBLE!!!

Brie

We started with baked Brie.

Salmon

I had stuffed Salmon with Asparagus.

Tenderloin

And, Joe had Beef Fillets with Brussel Sprouts. Everything was divine, and I can’t wait to go back again soon.
