Too casual for casual Friday? Citron Safari

Is this too casual for work? For an idea, others wear medium-light wash jeans. Untucked shirts are the norm on Fridays, some chunky sweaters, boots... no blazers on most. Hoping the blouse, dark denim and pumps do it.

    Looks great!

    Why don't you wear skinny jeans to work on a Friday?

  • Kirti replied 9 years ago

    I don't think it is too casual at all! I lve the citron and olive combo :-)

  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago

    Not too casual - this would fly in my office on Fridays for sure. I love you in that citron colour Rae!

  • rute replied 9 years ago

    It's lovely and different!

  • kellygirl replied 9 years ago

    I love it! Fun vest!

  • rae replied 9 years ago

    Angie, there are plenty of skinny jeans worn on Friday! Sorry if I gave that impression; it wasn't my intention.

  • Angie replied 9 years ago

    Great! This outfit would also look amazing with faded skinny jeans.

  • replied 9 years ago

    Cute! And you look like your individual self among the sea of skinny jeans, I imagine. I love that sleeveless safari jacket/vest/gilet/dress/tunic thingy on you!

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    Those layered tops or gilet/vest/jacket &, what Claire said!... look FABULOUS. I'd be so admiring of a colleague who dressed like that for casual Friday.

    I love this!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    I love your outfit! Especially love the nude footwear with the dark skinnies! That blouse is beautiful!

  • Carole replied 9 years ago

    Fun outfit, perfect for casual Friday!

  • MNsara replied 9 years ago

    I love this outfit on you! I think it's a great Friday outfit - with MUCH more style than just jeans and an untucked shirt :-)

  • rae replied 9 years ago

    Thanks, speedy ladies! I wore the outfit as-is and am feeling fine. The vest is a BB Dakota I thrifted a while ago - BALKED at the $8.99 price tag, lol, but it met DH approval, so I snapped it up. The shoes are actually these Boutique 9 ombre pumps I thrifted from Goodwill for $8.

    Now... I needs me some faded skinnies!

    You look great!!!

    I really like this! Love how you added polish to the casual tunic. Sounds like your environment is pretty casual, so if I were you I'd absolutely wear this.

  • Jjsloane replied 9 years ago

    Looks perfect to me - dressier than many of my Friday workmates. The shoes alone make it dressier.

  • Kari replied 9 years ago

    I LOVE it! Not too casual for my company at least :)

  • Kristin L replied 9 years ago

    It looks great. From the way you describe what others wear on casual Friday, I think this will be fine.

  • Kiwichik replied 9 years ago

    Go for it!

  • CocoLion replied 9 years ago

    Actually this looks dressy so I think, no problem for casual Friday.

    You know I love denim and if I like the jeans I am willing to spend $$$ and not on sale either. Having said that, some of my favorite light wash skinny jeans are from Target which I purchased for under $15. Mine aren't made any more, they are technically jeggings without front pockets but they are so comfortable and I love the wash.

  • rae replied 9 years ago

    Denise, I do have lighter wash jeggings from Gap... those should probably work, since the tunic covers the bum area. Maybe I'll try those next time, with my dalmatian booties!

  • Tanya replied 9 years ago

    Great outfit Are, not too casual at all. Love the combo of olive&citron.

  • Sarah A replied 9 years ago

    lovely! was just thinking about how lovely a citron shirt would be earlier today! love how youve styled it with the olive and dark skinny/light shoe combo. the lighter jeggings and booties sound fun too!

  • catgirl replied 9 years ago

    I like it, of course. :) I don't think it's too casual at all.

  • Aida replied 9 years ago

    Love it and would happily wear it myself :D

    (OK you've reminded me to pull out my olive vest, I loved wearing it with my avocado silk shirt down in LA!)

  • rae replied 9 years ago

    *Gasp* You DID wear something very similar in LA, didn't you? You must have seeped into my fashion subconscious! Darn, I should have carried my tomato red bag like you did, too!

  • Aida replied 9 years ago

    Teehee, I think I bought that green shirt because I can't wear citron but I so love it on you and that's as close as I can get! :D

  • Joy replied 9 years ago

    This outfit looks downright formal compared to light jeans with untucked shirts. Love the citron on you!

  • Parsley replied 9 years ago

    I'm no help as far as what's appropriate for casual Friday since I don't work in that sort of environment, but I just have to say that your outfit has great style! Your tunic vest/ gilet/ whatever is so unique and cool, and I love the tonal effect of the avocado and citron and the ombré shoes.

  • cheryl replied 9 years ago

    Totally appropriate. You look great.

  • Ioana replied 9 years ago

    It's not too casual, it's ok :)
