Casual Friday Done Right

Today I have a a great causal Friday look to share with you. I love dressing comfy, so this outfit really works for me. I wish every day was casual Friday! I would not complain.  πŸ™‚ This time of year the weather is a bit crazy so cardigans are what I am layering on. I find that neutral cardigans are a great investment for your wardrobe because you can layer them over most outfits.

The Banana Republic shirt is so soft and it crosses in the front to add some extra detail. I love this colour so much! The cardigan is also from Banana Republic and it is as soft as a blanket. I am not joking! The cardigan has a belt which I removed for this particular outfit.

I added some super comfy booties that are a favorite this season. They seem to go with all of my casual outfits. I also paired my leopard clutch which I use all the time.

A big thanks so my gorgeous friend Krista Alexander for doing my hair in this amazing halo braid.   Also, let’s all just take a minute and appreciate how awesome Thomas Bullock is for taking these rainy day photos! β€ 

Oh, Friday! Let me hug you!

 I hope you all have a wonderful day! I am still playing the catch up game over here but I I am seeing the end of the to-do list approaching! I am  off on another trip next week, so it will be a busy weekend preparing for that and getting all my content ready to go.
