not quite business casual

when: last Thursday  |  where: work  |  weather: 73 and sunny

I'm super fortunate in the fact that I can wear jeans to work. Though with the exclusions of Fridays, most days I opt to dress up a bit more with dark pants, dress, or a skirt, especially if I'm going into meetings or know I'll be interacting with the community. But last Thursday I knew I was going to be hidden away at my desk for most the day, and the lure of jeans was too strong. So it was jeans Thursday instead of jeans Friday - though let's be real, it's ALWAYS jeans Friday.

I say this not quite business casual, because in my option, jeans are never part of business attire (unless your lucky and work in a more relaxed professional environment like I do). So to make this outfit a touch more office appropriate, I added a colorful blazer and dressier flats.

It's business up top and a party on the bottom. :)

  1. I'm always a fan of a fancy/casual situation in an outfit. And of a blazer + stripes. And of bows on flats!

    1. Ha, it's like an outfit mullet - business up front (or up top in this case) and a party in the back (bottom)!

  2. I love the mixing of jeans & blazers to make jeans more work-ready, and I especially love the shade of this blue blazer with those jeans!! I'm usually a jeans-on-Friday gal if I'm in the office, although sometimes if I'm meeting with customers I have to be dressy ALL WEEK LONG :(

    1. I feel you on that one. If I have a business meeting or meeting with someone in the community, it's dress up clothes even if it is a Friday. :(

  5. As the 2008 recession lingers into its fourth year, many consumers have closed their wallets to a long list of "big ticket" purchases, and home improvements appear to be riding the top of that list. With cash reserves at a premium, many home owners have simply decided to wait on making improvements, and understandably so. Machining Strategist 2020 R1

  16. A business plan is often referred as the roadmap to success. Anyone who runs an existing business or is in the process of starting up understands a sound business plan is the initial step for success. It will give a precise description of what the business will achieve, how it will be achieved, why and by whom. quitmasturbating
