Casual Friday Feat. My Favorite Drawstring Trousers

April 29, 2016


Happy Friday All!  

In this casual Friday look I am wearing my absolute favorite navy blue drawstring trousers from Zara.  They come in four different colors (beige, black, navy, striped) and they're only $39, making them a staple in my work-wear wardrobe.  Aside from how comfortable they are, I love how easily you can dress them up or down.  I can wear them with a t shirt and sneakers on the weekends or during the week pair them with a nice button down and heels.    They also look great with just about any shoe.  I honestly have never tried on a pair of shoes with them and not liked the way they looked.  I think it's the material of these pants that make them so versatile.  You can wear them so many different ways so it's easy to get away with wearing them multiple days in a row (which I do often).  They're loose, but not baggy, which makes them comfortable but the sleek looking material makes them nice enough to wear to the office.  

The white sneaker trend reigned supreme in 2015.  This trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere and for that I am extremely grateful.  I like to take full advantage of wearing sneakers whenever I can.  I am constantly on the go and I was born a speed walker so heels just don't cut it sometimes.  I wear my white sneakers to and from work and almost always have them with me just in case.  In today's look, I kept it casual with my white Vans because I anticipate testing out the new Zagster bikes at lunch.  I brought these Sam Edelman gladiator heels with me to change when I got to the office.  Although the sneakers would have been acceptable for Casual Friday, I just think the heels tie the whole outfit together and who knows what Friday night will bring.  I may end up going out right after work in which case I will be very happy I brought my heels with me today.  The denim jacket tied around my waist adds a nice touch and combined with the choker gives the outfit a very 90's feel which is another trend I am loving right now.  This outfit as a whole is pretty casual but it's perfect for this time of year when Summer and Winter are still battling it out and we're never really sure what Mother Nature has in store for us.
