Look We Love: Casual Friday

It's been a long week.  Whether you've been hitting the books in school, or hitting the computer at work, we like to think of the weekend as our mini escape time.  Where we can unwind, let go of the weekly cares, and relax.  And what better way to usher the rejuvenation the weekend brings then to make our casual Friday a fashionable one too?!  

Why we love this look:  it's simple, functional, and effortlessly fashion forward all at the same time.  Let's start with the denim.  Skinnies are a staple for most girl's wardrobes, and while we typically wear them all the way long, with a killer pair of heels, folding the cuff gives them a whole new facelift.  And a perfect match to this casual glam?  The oxford flats!  Oxfords are synonymous with studious sophistication and preppy class, and when paired with the relaxed look of the folded jeans, you create a look that maintains an element of professionalism, while showcasing your softer side.

And what to wear on top?  How about some concentric florals?  Floral print adds a flirty playfulness to any look, and when the colors are dark, rather then the typical bright hues, the patterns grows up a bit, ready to strut with the more serious oxfords on the bottom.

And perhaps our most favorite part of the look is the burgundy lace cardigan.  Burgundy is a go-to color choice for the fall, and lace?  Well, lace never fails in this type of setting.  Pick out jewel tones and your lace pieces are instantly elevated from ultra girly to classic woman.  And lastly, don't forget to top the look off with a thrift style hat to round out the casual appeal.  If you're going for effortless chic, a hat always gets the job done.  Keep it in a neutral tone so that it doesn't overpower the rest of the ensemble.
