Yep, another entry in my “Casual Friday” outfit formula of a blazer paired with skinny jeans! (I still have some past outfits from the spring quarter to show, and then I’ll continue with casual work outfits throughout the upcoming summer quarter.) When I saw this combo on Adina’s excellent Blue Collar Red Lipstick style blog (scroll down for the final pic), my eyes and brain lit up. Here’s how my thinking went when I pinned this look on my “Casual Friday ideas” board:
- Structured blazer in a neutral color? Check.
- Wine-colored top underneath? Check.
- Skinny jeans? Check.
- Animal print flats? Check.
- Long pendant necklace? Check.
I wore this on a Friday — OF COURSE — a day which included a morning meet-and-greet coffee date with another local librarian, a meeting, another event on campus, and project work behind-the-scenes. Lots of variety on this Friday workday — and this comfy, classic outfit was good to go for all the myriad tasks on my to-do list. 😀
We took these photos after work, and I thought you’d enjoy seeing the outfit “on the move,” so to speak, hence the photos of me jumping, above, and walking, below. The backdrop is a nearby church.
