It’s Friday! I’m sure all of you are as ready for the weekend as I am. I’m not sure if you noticed or not but this week has been dedicated to looks for the office. Today I thought I’d wear some of my favorite basic pieces for a casual Friday. This look doesn’t necessarily have to be for the office though. My goal for today is just to provide you with some inspiration for the weekend. To be honest, what I’m wearing today might not be acceptable in some office settings. It’s important to remember your limits when it comes to casual work environments. If you work for a startup company, then distressed jeans like the ones I have on today are acceptable. As a matter of fact, they’re usually part of the startup job uniform. It’s one of the reasons why I enjoy working for startup companies.
I’m a huge fan of stores like Madewell and J. Crew. These stores have a great way of showcasing basic pieces that are classic. The clothing they offer gives you a great starting point that you can layer and build off of. After all, that is what basic pieces are meant for. In one of my previous posts I mentioned that it’s my goal to start purchasing more basic pieces. So for today, I paired Madewell’s Whisper Cotton Long-Sleeve Tee and High Riser Skinny Jeans with my favorite scarf and Converse sneakers. This look makes wearing basic pieces for a casual Friday perfect!
Here’s my look:

Now that it’s finally gotten cold in Atlanta, I could easily layer my tee with a sweater. I could also switch out my sneakers for a great pair of knee boots! I want to make sure I point out that the jeans and tee I’m wearing today are currently on sale at Madewell! Time to go shopping!
What are some of your favorite basic pieces for a casual Friday?
Until next time…
