French-inspired casual Friday

This outfit was inspired by a co-worker, who greeted me by speaking French earlier last week because he said I looked “very French” in my striped top and red lipstick. (This is the second time this has happened.) I don’t speak French, but I will take the compliment! My co-worker paid me a further compliment by suggesting that I get business cards with the words “Snappy Dresser” underneath my name. 😀 We then had an interesting conversation about French style, so I said I would dress in a French-inspired outfit that Friday.

Instead of going for stripes for my casual Friday outfit, I went with a fisherman’s sweater instead as my starting point. I then added French-inspired accessories with the neck scarf and beret. And of course, red lipstick!

I’m also mixing navy + black together again! The trick for me in mixing navy + black? Do it with intention. My black ballet flats and beret link to my black skinny jeans, and the navy in my neck scarf link to the navy sweater. And of course, my red lipstick links to the red in the scarf. Even when I mix neutrals, I color-coordinate! 😀

    Did your coworker get a kick out of this outfit, too? It does just scream “France”, especially the color scheme? Also, weird question: did you wear the beret all day or take it off after you got to work?

      Ooh, good question! I greeted him at the start of the day, and yes, he did get a kick out of it! His favorite touch was the neck scarf. I did take the beret off after that, as I had a behind-the-scenes kind of day spent mostly in my office (which can get stuffy). I have worn hats all day at work, but not that day.
