But enough about all that. I’m here today to bring you an outfit of the day! I wore this to work on a casual Friday back in December. I work in state-level government, but I’m lucky in that my office is fairly relaxed. On casual Friday, it’s not uncommon to see folks in sweatshirts and sneakers, but I like to class things up a bit with fun colors or semi-casual pieces. One of my favorite pairings for a cas-Fri (yes, I just made that up and yes, I will use it forever) is skinny jeans with a blazer. The combo is professional but laid-back, and it transitions seamlessly to happy hour drinks with friends or dinner with my fiancé. Because Friday!
Anyway. Didn’t mean to have a whole tangent there.
Bad habit of mine, that one :) So once upon a time, I was really afraid to wear color. Most of my wardrobe was black and gray, and I only wore one bright color at a time. But I’ve become more adventurous since I started blogging nearly four years ago, and I’ve now worked my way up to mostly-color outfits with gray accents, instead of the other way around. It was still a little nerve-wracking for me, but after looking at these photos I know I made the right choice.
Welp, that wraps it up for me. Feel free to stop by my blog any time to rant about stores, share your color-fearing (or color-loving) woes, or just to say hello! And congrats to Bri and her new hubby—I hope the two of you have an amazing time on your safari adventures!
