At times, it can be challenging trying to dress “not so corporate” in a corporate evironment. I want to look polished and professional but I also want to add some personality and flare into whatever I am wearing. For me, it’s not only important to look appropriate at work (dress for the job you want mentality) but it’s also important I put a bit of a Natasha twist into the Ann Taylor skirt I may be wearing or the JCrew button down I purchased.
It took me a bit of time to adjust my wardrobe from “collegey” to “9-5 joby” and I’ve had to grow into a style I felt comfortable and confident in. My style is of course constantly evolving and changing as time goes on which is expected. Casual Fridays are definitely something I look forward to at the end of a long week because I can finally wear jeans at the office. Jeans are pretty tricky though….. they may seem easy to wear but they can definitely look sloppy if not paired with the right shoes, shirts or accessories. Here are a few inspirational causal Friday looks I love and I can see myself leveraging bits and pieces of these ladies chicness for work (and the ripped jeans on weekends of course).
