Risky Business

The wayfarers and collar shirt make me think of Tom Cruise in Risky Business minus the whole dancing in my underwear part. For me, it’s more like blogging in my underwear in between drying my hair, getting dressed, and running out the door in the morning. Yeah—that’s really not cool. Even though I may not have the coolness factor of Tom Cruise in an 80s movie, I sure feel cool in this summery red and blue combo. The nude heels and brown belt add to the warmth of the outfit. Lastly, I couldn’t allow this preppy outfit to be too perfect, so I added some vintage bracelets. Risky…right?

Navigating casual Friday

For casual Friday at work (everyday), I like to turn to my Forever 21 maxi dress. It is amazingly comfortable, and it is also a great option for any Friday night plans that may come up. Wearing it with a cardi or cover up, to me, makes it work appropriate. Some may disagree, but my office is pretty casual. Some people wear jeans everyday. I choose to dress up during the week, but opt for something casual Friday, which is what the majority of people do. Everyone associates casual Friday with jeans. However, during the recent heat wave (99 degrees) we have been experiencing, jeans might not be the most comfortable option. So I am just curious, what can you get away with at your office? Is it just me, or are policies becoming more relaxed?
