Casual Fridays: An Updated Spring Work Look

Remember the days when your outfits to school were of the utmost importance? As an adult, it’s a similar feeling when you’re headed to work, that is depending on your environment. Working in fashion for over a decade, I’ve learned that you want to make a good impression and look stylish, but not like you tried too hard. Not only does a killer outfit set the tone for your day, but it will give you a huge confidence boost that may help you overcome any nervous jitters if you’re starting a new position or giving a presentation.

My favorite day of the week (as I’m sure most of you can agree with me), is Friday! Not only does it conclude the end of the week but in some offices also allows a little leeway in how you can dress. Of course, depending on which field you work in and your own personal style, outfit combinations and what is appropriate for your workplace will differ here and there. However, work attire is major when it comes to the office – after all, it’s how you present yourself to your boss and coworkers. You want to put your best foot forward, look professional, chic and add a little bit of your own personality to it. Whether you’re the VP, an assistant, or even kick-starting your career as an intern, there are plenty of ideas to go around that will be sure to fit your persona. Scroll down to see my picks for a fresh Spring work outfit!

Corporate

If you’re about to step into the world of lawyers, investment banking, or business consulting, fret not – your wardrobe doesn’t have to be so serious – especially on Casual Fridays! This is where you can bring out your inner boss lady, and what better way to do that than with a chic pantsuit or button down and trousers combination? You’re establishing yourself as an independent businesswoman who can do anything she puts her mind to. Some essentials are a sleek pair of trousers, a tailored or fitted blazer, and comfortable pumps. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors like red, and play with accessories to make your outfit pop (fun earrings and statement shoes are always a nice touch).


 

Fashion

If you’re like me and work in the crazy realm of fashion, then you’re lucky to be able to take some risks when it comes to dressing for work. Most offices in the fashion industry will appreciate a quirky, boundary pushing outfit – but you should still look classy and respectful. Overly exposed cleavage and daringly short hemlines should probably be avoided at all costs in general, but fashionistas can experiment mixed patterns, architectural pieces, tasteful denim, and fun proportions. For the first day of work, I love the idea of wearing a maxi dress with knee high boots and a tailored blazer. However, each company is different. In fashion, you can never go wrong with a sleek all-black look – so when in doubt, monochrome!


 

Creative

If you work in music, the arts, or any other creative field – then (almost) anything goes. This is where you can showcase your creative side and express your personality without many limits. The quirkier, the better! Midi skirts with sneakers, oversized chunky sweaters, baggy tees and boyfriend jeans, plus chic thick-rimmed glasses are right up your alley. Since you may even be your boss and probably don’t have to worry about a dress code, you can make your own rules, such as dressing like it’s Casual Fridays every day! However, treat any meetings or work events as the first day at the office – dress to impress and dial up the class, while still being you.


 

Casual

If you work in a very casual environment, say at a startup or family owned business – it’s still a great idea to dress yourself up and look professional on the daily, even on Friday (a.k.a don’t come into the office wearing leggings and a sweatshirt). A nice top, skinny jeans and sneakers or flats are usually a good way to go here, and depending on your mood, perhaps a dainty dress. And it doesn’t hurt to throw on a casual blazer in case you need to sneak into a meeting or meet other professionals!

  • Shout out to my husband for looking super hot on our parent’s night out tonight. See what I mean ( 👖 🍑) on my stories... @wrangler #wranglerbuttsdrivemenuts #ad
  • Having a daughter of my own has made me realize more than ever how important it is to teach our children about female empowerment. One way I love educating Honor about girl power is through storytelling. I have discovered some truly empowering and uplifting books with examples of brilliant trailblazing women in history or fictional stories about independent and courageous girls who carve out their own paths in life. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on #FrontRoe that I have read to Honor or gifted to special young ladies in my life! Link in bio. http://liketk.it/2F1Zr #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Do you remember how short my hair was when I first started using @BondiBoost Hair Growth range a few months ago!? Wow has it grown and thickened up fast! I took it with me to England and had to hide it in Honor’s suitcase when we flew home so Mum wouldn’t steal it, LOL. If you’re looking to grow your hair I highly recommend trying this Aussie made, cruelty-free haircare brand. #BoostYourRoots #BondiBoost #Sponsored
  • The night before moving to LA over ten years ago, I watched Pretty Woman for the millionth time, to get me in the mood (not because I wanted to be a prozzie, but rather because I couldn’t wait to strut down Rodeo Drive 🛍) and ten years later, the street is still just as magical 💫 🌴
  • Onto the next adventure my ♥️!!
  • Today was exhausting, emotional and surreal... I’m too shattered to write a long caption - my eyes are closing - but see my stories for a house update, more from me tomorrow! ✌🏻 🏡 😢
  • #ad Long distance traveling really takes a toll on my skin and this summer has seen a lot of long-haul flying. @Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream and @Olay Regenerist Whip have really been the only staples in my bag and I combine the two to keep my face happy. See my stories for a link to get your hands on one #Olay #RedJar #FaceAnything
  • When Thursday afternoon really felt like Friday afternoon today 😍🍾What a beautiful party sipping on James Bond’s favorite bubbly! Thank you @champagne_bollinger #bollingerpartner
  • We have some big news! 
After a decade living in LA, we are going to be spending more time in London. We want Honor to be closer to family, to friends back home, and to the English countryside. We aren’t turning our backs on America (we’ll be splitting our time!) But over the coming months, Mackenzie and I will be house-hunting in England, traveling around Europe and sharing every moment with you guys. 
I’m feeling super emotional writing this. What a big change. I will be forever grateful to the experiences, friendships, jobs and sunshine Los Angeles has given me, but it’s time for a new family chapter. 
Now where should we visit on our new European adventure?? As always, thank you guys for your constant ♥️ and support!
