Casual Friday in tan + black stripes

Casual Fridays in my world usually mean jeans + a blazer. It’s a uniform of sorts that just seems to work every time. For this Friday, I had a work day mostly consisting of instruction prep, along with a meeting and a more informal library orientation and Q&A session for new faculty. My “casual Friday” uniform definitely seemed right for this work day mix.

Because of the meeting and orientation, I wanted to look, and feel, a little dressier and put-together. And a little sassy. So I slipped on my bow, peep-toe wedges, shoes I have had over a decade! I also had a subtle colorblock and striped theme going, with my black-and-tan tote bag and striped skinny jeans. (I lightened the photo above so you could better see the black stripe on my dark jeans.)

I also added my gold rope brooch to jazz things up a bit on the top half, and my gold-and-black dangly earrings — a gift from my friend and fellow librarian Stephanie — rounded everything out.

I felt comfortable, put-together, and “long ‘n’ lean” in this variation of my “casual Friday” jeans + a blazer uniform. When I put this post together, I also realized that this outfit was very similar to yet another “casual Friday’-themed post from spring 2013. The skinny jeans are different, as well as the color of the striped tank, but otherwise, it’s the same outfit idea!

So there you go, accidental remixing. And the outfit still works for me today, as it worked for me two years ago. Remixing = real life, y’all.
