When Casual Friday Isn't Casual At All
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.
