i'm back! + casual friday do's and don'ts

hello everyone! sorry for the extended break -- i quickly realized that having to work full-time meant a lot less free time, and therefore a lot less time for blogging! i really enjoy my job, and that's partly what this post is about today! and although i have less time for blogging, i will do my best to have one or two posts each week :)

so this is the top half of what i wore yesterday to work..

black blazer: h&m, silk top: vintage, necklace: red hue boutique, bangle: forever21, gray skinny jeans (not pictured): forever21, leopard flats (pictured below the jump): target

keep reading to see my tips for friday outfits!

since you don't want to be the girl in the office who looks too casual on a casual friday (and i definitely see some out there..), i made a list of a few do's and don'ts that will save you from embarrassment and/or stern warnings!

1. DO feel free to express your personal style, but make sure it is still work appropriate, depending on your specific work dress code.

2. DON'T wear torn, dirty, frayed, or too-baggy jeans. you don't want to look like a mess!

3. DO feel free to dress up your jeans a bit! it's all about balance, and since jeans are a bit more casual, i paired my gray skinny jeans with a bright coral red silk top and a black blazer. and a pair of leopard flats never hurt anyone.. (see below)!

are there any other tips you can think of that you'd add to this list? :)
