When Casual Friday Isn't Casual At All

So, at my new job they recently introduced "business casual Fridays." I have figured out that this really means men don't have to wear ties on Friday, and the women are kind of on their own. The list of what you can wear on casual Friday includes suits.

This is the hardest wardrobe decision of my week. I own one pair of "Casual Friday" pants which are black, because no denim is allowed. When it was cooler out I could wear a nicer sweater and be OK. The weather is getting warmer. It took me 10 minutes of different "tops" this morning before I settled on something that was "business casual but not too casual but not too stuffy" lest I be one of those lame-os who wears business attire on Casual Friday! Heaven forbid.

At my old job, every day was casual, and Fridays were this giant fashion free-for-all. I have swung all the way back on the pendulum and I feel like there has to be a happy balance out there somewhere. Or maybe I just need new clothes... yes. That's the answer.

I wear jeans on Friday.
