Casual Friday

December 21, 2012

By Gabrielle.

Friday elicits a calm uniquely its own, don’t you think? My shoulders drop contentedly, my pre-weekend chores feel more like I’m preparing for a holiday, and I’m usually more daring in my wardrobe choices. No casual Friday for me! (Usually.)

Fine and Dandy is an anti-casual New York men’s shop specializing in the accouterments of a well-dressed life. That includes boutonnieres, spats, Paris garters, and glass cases filled with treasures you might remember your grandfather owning. I could spend an afternoon and a bank account in there for Ben Blair and Ralph and Oscar and — who am I kidding? — for me, too. I could go full-on Annie Hall and be perfectly content for the rest of my days!

How do you dress on Fridays? Like any other day, or as if you’re on your way to a wonderful place that I like to call The Weekend?

Every day is casual dress at my office – I love it! Jeans every day, yoga pants during my last two weeks of pregnancy…no one batted an eye! If I wear heels with my jeans I get a lot of cracks about going on job interviews. It’s great!

Right now my school has leaks in the ceilings (I’m on the 4th floor) with 3 other classes in an OLD building. I walked in to water coming in through windows, wind blowing cold air…I decided to hide in the library to warm up and treat myself to DesignMom!!! My casual dress includes wearing my raincaot and hood – thank goodness it’s “hat day” LOL The kids’ energy will keep me warm LOL – they are BEYOND excited today, as am I…♥
