I get the concept of cutting loose after 4 consecutive days of suiting but ‘Casual Friday’ is a foreign concept to those of us who work in fashion. And now that I am a mom and I have incorporated more “casual” pieces into my day-to-day, I like to celebrate Friday with a really banging look.

Let’s start from the shoes and work our way up, shall we? I know it is winter and those frigid temps are looming so I say take every advantage of showing some skin (ankles to be specific). I am getting as much wear as possible out of these Dee Keller pumps. Love the classic shape, the crisp white and the perfect heel height.

Then we have this bomb pleated midi skirt from Zara in a cognac buttery “leather”, which I am living for. This can be a scary color but if done right, it is freakin’ chic. I tucked in a simple black high boat neck sweater, which incidentally is actually a sweater dress (on the look out for a sweater like this so help a girl out!).

And the piece du resistance, the earrings. They are oversized. They are dainty. They are perfection. I love how they edge up this sophisticated, ladylike look. But believe you me, I will be wearing these with EVERYTHING. I can’t express my deep lust for these babies from Tres Chic Styling.

All and all I’d have to say this look is anything but casual but I am rocking it on a Friday and feeling particularly awesome. Happy weekend! xo
