Due to some crazy long hours at work this time of year, Casual Friday became Casual Everyday for the next few weeks. I wore this to the office last week on a day when I had no plans to meet with any clients. To keep my casual look comfy yet professional, I complemented by black skinny jeans and cotton T-shirt with a blazer and matching flats.
The flats, by the way, provide a professional appearance and secretly are super comfortable. I stumbled across the Cole Haan flats a few years ago in a Nordstrom Rack, one of my more favorite places to shop, and scooped them up. At the time, Cole Haan was owned by Nike, so the shoes have NikeAir technology built into the soles. Pretty darn awesome! Also pretty sweet – how the right blazer can turn jeans and a T-shirt into casual corporate attire. It took me many years to jump on the blazer bandwagon, but I’m definitely on board now. In addition to a blazer’s “polish factor,” I also love when a blazer has a great lining, like the blue gingham on this one. I had to roll up the sleeves just a bit to show it off. Oh how simple pleasures in life can be so sweet.
