Ok, so that last outfit was actually worn on a Thursday, but would probably fly for a casual Friday in a more professional office than mine. As you might be able to tell, I love the bootcut/trouser jeans and pointy-toed heel combo...comfy and chic. I get my jeans mostly from Old Navy, but do have a few more "designer" pairs (so the store says) from a denim boutique that specializes in providing designer duds for $99 and under (think like a TJ Maxx -- buying designer overstock -- but just jeans, and an adorable boutique environment). I'm talking Paige, Sevens, Rock & Republics, J Brand, etc. Those are mainly the $79-$99 ones, so I stick to the sample side, which is how I snagged the I Generation and Rockabilly jeans. If you are anywhere near Davis, California, and like denim, I'd encourage you to check them out (for what it's worth, I am not affiliated with the store in any way, just a very happy repeat customer). I have a few other pairs from them, too, since they are actually on my block. Shopping diets suck when you walk past your favorite store on the way to your car every morning.
What do you wear on casual Fridays? Are you a designer denim fan or will any ol' jean do?
