How To Accessorize | A Friday Statement

I love my job. What I do not love is that we can’t wear jeans on Friday. Actually, we can’t wear jeans – ever.

I’ve worked for years in business casual to super casual environments and for rough days it’s so nice to not think and just put jeans on. Not for this Webmaster…sigh. So today I’m being a bit rebellious and I’m wearing a Chambray shirt from Target as my slight protest to my lack of jeans. My husband declared this my casual Friday cuteness outfit and I like it a lot.
Of course I have to make a denim shirt a bit classier and I took some inspiration from this post,Β  so I’ve added a metallic touch, some floral oxfords and my favorite statement necklace of all time. Clearly, this takes a “denim” shirt to the next level, right? It also elevates the fact that my pants, button down and tank are all from Target. I think the most expensive piece were the pants at $30 (maybe $24) and my shoes were from Forever 21 with a gift card. Oh and I bought the belt from NY & Co in November when they had their everything 50% off sale, so I’m pretty sure this entire outfit (minus the necklace) is under $100 – that’s my kind of outfit!
And to be honest, this necklace was only $50 and the best investment in a piece of jewelry I’ve ever made. I adore it. And no, I will not give it away. Ever. So don’t even ask it! I think I may repeat this outfit again for another causal Friday. It’s easily one of my favorite combinations. Anyone have any suggestions for what to wear on Fridays when jeans aren’t an option? Please share!

What I’m Wearing: Shirt, Pants and Tank from Target | Shoes (not seen), Forever 21 | Belt, NY & Co | Statement Necklace, Queen Bee Designs | Lipstick, CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Divine

  1. Oh that’s a great idea to buck the no jeans thing. I work in a hospital in the administrative type area, so I feel your pain. No jeans – not ever! I might have to work in the sneaky shirt. πŸ™‚ I’m in love with the necklace.

    • @Alissa The no jeans thing is KILLING ME! I just want to throw on a pair once. Just once! But that just means I have to get casually creative πŸ™‚

  2. Dana, I’m loving that statement necklace! I’ll be over this weekend to pick it up . Please and thank you lol I really love this look! I’m having the hardest time finding a cute denim shirt going to check out my local Target Asapington πŸ™‚

  3. Being a jeweler with Premier Designs, I noticed jewelry and I am totally in love with your necklace. I love the shape, the colors and the way that it can spice up a casual outfit or snazzing up a sheath dress for a night out too!
