Chiffon Tee and Wedge Trainers - Primark.
Skinny Jeans - Levi's.

I think I have finally beaten that cold virus that turned me into a snotty, grumpy, moany mess. Now I get to be grumpy because I have loads of work to catch up on - I know the common view of a Freelancer is someone who doesn't get out of bed until lunch and sits around in their pajamas all day (for me it is usually food stained sweats). But we actually work pretty hard, and we get no sick pay or paid holidays, so being ill can be hard on the pocket.

So whilst I have been franticaly been catching up with work to make some money to keep the cobwebs in my pocket company, I haven't been too concerned about my appearence (which, is good because crypt keeper comes to mind everytime I look in the mirror - Happy Halloween). Every day recently has been casual Friday, with jeans and tee being my go to look. I just don't have the time to wrestle with tights and impossible dress zippers - the fear of pinching my skin is extra stress I don't need :)

How do you guys dress for Casual Friday?

  1. Your causal really is so nice!! I love the blue top/pink lip combo :) I have friday's off this year and I usually go to town in the morning (hoodie & jeans) and then pyjama bottoms in the afternoon.. I take casual too literally haha!
    P.S thank you so much for your comment on my latest post. It really does mean the world to me xx

  2. I love your top - the colour is so lovely on you.

  3. Awww so sad you were feeling sick! I woke up today not feeling too great. Hopefully I can beat this though because I'm really not cool with getting sick!

    I love your shoes!!! I have a pair in that style that I just adore! The gold color is amazing. They go so well with your outfit. <3 Love the look, Gems!


  4. You are working sports-luxe to the max Gems! Love this outfit, the tee is such a casually cool piece and the sheen from your gold trainers is just gorgeously gold! Sheer perfection ;) And the ombre! You know I damn well crush on that gorgeous ombre of yours ^_^

    So glad to hear you are feeling better lovely, I'm so sorry you were feeling so rubbishy and I hope the workload is as demand-free as can be, I can only imagine how hard it must be to catch up :| I hate people perceiving things (and being so out of touch with their perceptions too) you work bloody hard, and should be nothing but proud :) I'm totally with you on the food stained sweats (or jumpers in my case) I'm a menace for that! <3

  5. Great outfit, love the colour of your top and your high tops! I bought a similar pair but in boring grey :p I probably wear something similar to this, or if I'm just staying in, definitely PJ bottoms haha x

  8. Loving your casual look! I always seem to find myself in jeans or leggings and a long top so I really should make an effort to dress up a bit although I tend to focus more on my make up xx

  9. Nice outfit, but I need to wear more layers than this. I sit too much to generate my own heat.

  10. The pale blue is such a lovely colour on you! :) I love wearing jeans and ankle boots at work.
