casual friday


You know I don’t have big plans for a productive day when I show up to work in a minidress and flip flops. Ain’t no work happenin’ in this get-up. C and I are so looking forward to this long weekend; we woke up this morning and immediately began negotiations on how early we’d close the shop this afternoon.


Since it’s almost noon and we haven’t taken any orders yet, my odds of lounging poolside with a cocktail and a book by 3:00 are looking pretty good.

Alfani dress (Macy’s clearance many seasons ago); Elle Denim jacket; TKEES Foundations flip flops via Shopbop; Romeo & Juliet Couture handbag via Hautelook

    • Mega, I’ve been living in my jean jacket for weeks. It’s the perfect layer for the transitional weather and goes with everything. I found thi one at Kohl’s, but my favorites are the Gap classics. I’m keeping my eyes peeled for a summer sale on them. If I find a good deal, I will let you know!

  20. You know, regarding your dress: I noticed that I absolutely love digging through my closet and finding pieces that are still in style, but no one has anything similar, ’cause people buy-wear-throw away. Sometimes it s worth to have a long-term relationship with your clothes :)
