Keeping it Chic on Casual Friday

Anyone in the corporate world looks forward to casual Friday, where you get to wear jeans and be a bit more relaxed at work. Sometimes people can take casual Friday to the extreme and not even try to have a style that day, by just throwing on whatever they find on their closet floor. Even though it is casual Friday I believe you should still look stylish and put together just in a less corporate attire. I have found a couple of outfits that fits my idea of casual Friday style and I have made them affordable too!

Fabulously Cozy in Fall

Boots and scarves and sweaters oh my! The season is here where you can be stylish and comfortable at the same time and it is considered fashion. On any cool day a girl, in my book, needs a good pair of jeans or leggings, a cozy sweater and most definitely a scarf to go with every outfit and I mean every outfit. I am a scarf fanatic, if you don’t have one get one! Fall fashion can be a bit tricky towards the beginning of the season with the weather never being able to decide on what temperature to maintain, so layers are key this time of year! I have selected some outfits that keep the cozy fall style in mind at a reasonable cost.

Fall outfits can seem to cost you a bit more and they do because of jeans, boots, and jackets. Just keep in mind those items are staples in any fall wardrobe and you can use them for several outfits making the investment worth it!

Music Festival Fashion

With Austin City Limits Music Festival approaching today I ponder the question what to wear? Any music festival has its challenges as a girl when it comes to outfit selection because you want to be stylish, but not over done. Additionally not to mention comfortable since you will be on your feet outside all day and if you live in Texas as I do the sun can still be very brutal this time of year. If only us girls had it as easy as the guys do, right? Well, I have selected some outfits that might provide some inspiration to make the “what to wear” decision a little easier at an affordable cost.
