wear to work: Monday to Casual Friday

#OOTD: Monday to Casual Friday

Happy Friday!  I know at this point of the day you're just thinking about the weekend (and possibly a glass of wine), but I put together some outfits to take you from Monday to 'Casual Friday'.  I think everyone should own a great pair of black cropped trousers (GAP, J.Crew and ZARA are my go-tos), a white blouse, a blue shirt, a black blazer, a pair (or two) of flats (or heels, if that's your preference!), a pair (or two) of booties/boots, a sweaterdress (or 10 - you just put them on and go!), a cardigan (or two) for layering (offices are usually chilly), a suede and/or leather skirt and, last but not least, a pair of jeans (I recommend a dark wash) for 'Casual Friday'. 

What's great about these items is that you can mix and match them.  So if you're looking to go shopping for fall clothes, I would start by looking at your closet and seeing if you need these items (or if any of them need updating).  And then you build from there.  The key is to add pieces that can work with the rest of your wardrobe, like the Aritzia (vegan) suede skirt, above.  Just swap out the sweaterdress, add one of the shirts shown above and you're good to go!  Once your basics are covered, then you can start adding in some fun items, like these pink J.Crew pants.  You also don't want to buy something that doesn't work with the rest of your wardrobe (I found that out the hard way).

You can shop the items by clicking on the images below!
Happy shopping!
