Though "Casual Friday's" are a great day to be more relaxed in your work attire, I'm a firm believer that showing up to work looking too relaxed is a big no-no. Getting to the right balance of relaxed and professional can be quite tricky. So tricky, that once you find a winning combination it's tempting to repeat that same type of outfit over and over again. If you've fallen into a "Casual Friday" rut, a quick way to remedy that is to invert the color and or texture of your go-to pieces. Since denim is king on "Casual Friday's", wearing your denim on top can be a great way to invert your pieces to mix things up a bit. Here, I paired this amazingly versatile chambray/denim shirt from Banana Republic with a light colored tweed skirt. Inverting the textures and colors of the normal "Casual Friday" outfit leads to a more interesting outfit that's equal parts dressed down and chic.
You can use this same theory with a military style khaki shirt.
SIDENOTE: I've been getting tons of requests and pictures for the "She's A Boss Because..." series. So much so, that I've decided to make it a weekly series on the blog and am currently working on the next post. So, please keep on sending me your pictures and topic ideas. Our next installment in this series will cover work bags and will go up on the blog on Monday. Thanks for being the most awesome and engaged readers a girl could ask for.
