OOTD Casual Friday!

Ahh I love you Casual Friday! Not that I normally dress much more casual than normal, I chose to be a little more comfortable today at work since I am literally stuck in a corner (nobody puts baby in the corner right? um nope) in my temporary office, which is pretty claustrophobic but I knew that I wouldn't be seeing anyone today and just would be working at my desk so I made a conscious effort to dress a little more casual than usual but still looking professional and young!

  • Top & Cardigan: LOFT 
  • Skirt: NY & Co.
  • Necklace: Black Onyx & Coral from Hawaii (2012 trip)
  • Earrings: Black Onyx from Puerto Rico
  • Watch: Rolex
  • Rings: VT Class Ring & White Gold Diamond ring from Meghna Jewelers 
  • Shoes: Audrey Brooke via DSW

I usually never wear anything in the blue/green family of colors but for some reason, I was drawn to this top this morning when I got dressed since I knew I wanted to wear this knit skirt that is oh-so-comfortable! I love having one piece of clothing that I know I want to wear every day and then putting the rest of my outfit together based on that one article of clothing!

I had a pretty frustrating day/at work so I was so happy when 5pm hit and I was able to get my Rusty from daycare and get home! He is literally the highlight of my life and honestly I have no idea what I would do without him by my side each and every day! Here are some fun videos from our car ride home and his crazy antics once we arrived home! Love this little guy!

traffic made our drive home extra long so he took a little nap!

How do you pick your outfits in the morning, do you pick one piece and then put the rest together based on that one item??
What is your favorite color family to wear??
(you know I love my reds, pinks, & purples!)




  1. I srsly thought those flats were Tory. Very nice knock-offs!

    1. Hahah! I actually was planning on getting the Tory ones but after my sister got them and they hurt her so bad she had to return them, I was on a mission to find an alternative. DSW had a lot of options but these felt the best when I walked around in them so that's how I found them! They are Sooo comfy and perfect for a casual yet professional look!
