Casual Friday


It's almost Fri-yay! Woot woot! I learned something interesting recently that I thought I would share...The term "Casual Friday" originated from Hawaii in 1966! The garment industry was trying to sell more Hawaiian shirts and they cleverly introduced "Aloha Friday"-where businessmen could wear their tropicals shirts to work! I always think of this when I decide what I will wear that Friday morning!
Friday is the only day I wear jeans to work, and I am obsessed with the fit of this boyfriend fit. I find they are easy to dress up on a casual day to work and then switch to sandals and a tee for weekend errands, shopping around town or for the typical grocery run! The goal is to keep it simple and refined when you are wearing distressed denim to work. I added a preppy button up, my go-to wedges and my handbag that would fit my work computer on the way out of the office!
What is one of your favorite looks to wear to the office? Comment below if you wish to share!
Happy weekend! :-)

Weekend Comfort

 

Do you ever have a weekend where you just want to be comfortable as you go about your plans? This was the case for me this past weekend! The weather wasn't the greatest but the boyfriend and I had shopping to get done, and friends to see! I am obsessing over soft pants lately because they are so easy to take from day to night, work to weekend. I tend to choose a skinnier leg opening to balance out my curves, but you can find a million different stylles at Belk in a million prints! These Vince Camuto leopard pants that I am wearing, are actually on sale, find them here! I swear you must own this top I am wearing, I have it in white as well. It is so versatile, so effortless, so simple. If Tobi doesn't have your size, check back again soon, they restock frequently. My parents gave me this bag for my birthday and I must say, I am so excited for spring to be here since it is so bright and my favorite color- pink! Find similar colors of this tote here. My shoes are old but I have linked some similar ones here and here. I also bought my necklace a while back, but you can find a similar one here! What did you do this weekend? Share with me below, post a comment!

A Simple Little Lilly Loving

Top in Mulit Cattitude" Print / Bag-Similar here / Shoes- Love these ones or cheaper ones / Bracelet simple chain version here / Bow Watch / Denim is currently 25% off! / Sunnies / Monogram necklace - also like Nordstrom's 


 The weather forecast for the rest of the week is all rain, so I thought, what better way to brighten my day?- a little Lilly loving!  I'm heading to Greensboro this weekend to spend it with the boyfriend and we have plans with one of my best friends to grill out and meet her new man! I am not sure how we are going to eat outside in all of these April showers! 
I always seem to gravitate towards this knit when I am in a hurry to get ready and get out of the apartment. It is so easy to dress up or dress down, and is super, super soft. A few things you will notice is my obsession for this bag. I love this bag because, like this shirt, I don't have to think twice about it. Grab and go!
I know I can't be complaining about this weather when it has been all sunshine and in the eighties for the past month...however, I am sure hoping that sun pops out for the weekend!
