What I Wore: Truly Casual Friday

I am really enjoying my knit peg trousers from ASOS. I thought I was stepping out on a limb when I bought them back in the Spring, but they have become favorites. They are super soft and comfortable and layer up nicely for work and weekend.

Today I added a flowy Old Navy top I bought via ThredUp for about $7. I layered an ivory tank underneath. My wooden bangle from Bella’s Etsy shop and vintage dolphin hoops are the only jewelry needed, and my two year old Kenneth Cole sandals do the trick for the office. Nice, and easy. Now, enter the weekend!

You know how, when you should’ve washed your hair yesterday, you have to improvise?? Yeah.

  1. Beautiful work outfit, Patti, you look relaxed and sophisticated. Those peg leg trousers were a great buy, I am still looking for some. I will live vicariously through you, in the meantime!

  2. I really like the little black pants – good for you to try something new!

  3. You look great, it's a wonderful relaxed style with maximum chic!

  4. I must agree with everyone else, you look smashing in those pants. I must be way too short for this style because they sure didn't look like that on me. Love your relaxed weekend style, especially your hair pulled back, it just adds to the style.

  5. Um, "casual"? I don't think so. I like "incredibly glamorous"! You are a WOW and totes hot to boot if you don't mind me sayin'. You know, just sayin'…lol.

    Love ya,

  6. GREAT PANTS!! You look comfy and stylish. Unbeatable combination.

    Thank you for your comment on Dross. Dad is better and mom is in hospice, surrounded by friends and family. Part of the journey. XXOO

  7. I'm pretty much there with my silver. Or maybe I should call it Argentum!

  8. yes, good remembering! It's on the schedule for August : > Join me?

  9. That does look comfy, and Friday's often require a little comfort (and a lot of coffee). Those pants have such a cool vibe, and it goes with having your hair pulled back. Wasn't there some talk about going platinum?

  10. You look casual but pulled together and it's fun to change hair a bit.

  11. Patti, I like your top, and how you layered it for more discreet coverage. The pants definitely look like new style classic, you are sure to get to wear them often.

  12. I can see why you like the trousers, they look so good on you, and you work that masculine/feminine contrast beautifully. Love the hair too! Enjoy your weekend, Patti. xxxx

  13. Great outfit, your pants are fab and the shoes are pretty too!

  16. Love this look on you Patti, very fresh and contemporary – the trousers are great on you!

  17. I'm glad you bought those pants as well, Patti…they look great on you and this is such a great summer style. Thanks for the B-Day wishes…have a wonderful weekend!
