Fridays are casual day at work. Jeans are allowed (although how some people get away with certain mom jeans circa 1980 that are basically white from fading, I’ll never know). Basically, anything is allowed as long as you don’t look like A) a cheap hooker, B) a prostitute, C) a pimp, or D) a slutmuffin. This bans any and all sleeveless tops, skirts that double as belts, and belly-button cleavage cuts (circa JLo – early 2000′s).
Now, there have been plenty of times when I’ve thrown on a pair of skinny jeans, paired with a sweater or tee and blazer, and been perfectly happy with my wardrobe. However, at la hacienda de work-o, I only get the opportunity to dress in this lounge-tastic fashion once a week. Which clearly means I’m always in need of finding new ways to spice it up and to show off my best articles.
These babies are the perfect casual work bottoms – soft, comfy, yet at the same time classy and structured. This pant gives any old boring outfit a little pizzazz and newfound texture. Plus, it comes in endless colors – my fave currently being of the teal variety.
I also love cowboy boots. Obvi, so does Barkley (although he is not very impressed with my dancing abilities). They can be totally work appropriate – as long as it doesn’t look like you’re ready to ride in a rodeo (RE: extraneous and obnoxious metal and star thingies hanging off the sides used for the actual purpose of riding a horse).
Anywho – I gotsta run to a holiday partaaaay, so this must sadly be short and sweet.
Till next time lovahs.
Style Tip of the Day:
Liven up your ordinary jeans by investing in a pair or more of colored cords – the brighter the bettaaaa! I paired mine with my ink blot shirt, a navy blazer, cowboy boots & a simple gold necklace.
