Outfit Week: A Casual Friday Look

My sister-in-law works in a casual office, so most of the outfits that I post won’t work for her.  But recently, I put together an outfit for her from the wares at Old Navy that is perfect for a more relaxed job.  Let’s do it.

This shaker stitch cardigan comes in six colors, plus petite, tall, and plus.  It has enough texture to give it good weight and a more expensive look.

Normally, a brown floral peasant top is not going to draw my gaze, but when you mix it with the cardigan for a tone-on-tone look, it’s pretty great.  And it’s a nice summer-to-fall transition piece.

These ecru colored jeans are a great option for early fall or late summer.  They’re not as stark as white, but they have a great lightness to them. Sizes 00-30, tall and petite.

This gold toned necklace will complement the neckline of the top well.

Because it’s still summer, I’m not ready to style this with brown boots or loafers.  So I chose these raffia sandals, in a similar cream color to the pants, instead.

    Great picks! Gently, might I suggest that a more casual dress code doesn’t necessarily correlate with a “more relaxed job,” though? I don’t think you meant to imply that it did but I am trying to be more intentional with my own language too. Thank you for the effort you continue to put into this blog in what I know is a busy season of life for you.

    I didn’t do a birth plan. I read somewhere (or someone told me) that it creates expectations and if you have to deviate from it, it can lead to disappointment. So I didn’t do one and I have no regrets!

    I can vouch for this shaker sweater! I have it in cornflower blue. It’s gorgeous and has held up for over a year.
