Marianne: Casual Friday.

Adrien posted a perfect grown up outfit this week, with a BLOUSE and everything. And yet, it's Friday, and here I am. Tell me I'm not alone here: sometimes you have days were this is pretty much all you can muster up. And all things considered, I actually really do like this outfit. It's just not exactly pushing my sartorial limits.
This scarf is possibly the most favorite thing I've bought recently. It's such a great color mix, the pattern is whimsical but abstract when on, and it's a wool so soft and lightweight I think it might be made by angels. Overselling it? Maybe. I like this scarf, though.
Coupled with my $20 loungewear-disguised-as-daywear top and my trusty field jacket, I basically felt like I was cozied up in my pyjamas all day. And really, what more can you ask for?
And yeah, it's weirdly warm here and I'm wearing flats and no socks. And a jacket that is not much heavier than your average men's dress shirt. I'm sure it will snow in May.

What do you guys reach for when you need to look relatively stylish, but can't be bothered to think outside of jeans and layers? I'll admit that is my default, so by all means, inspire me.

  1. Hey - have been reading for awhile but just got around to sorting out a google identity. Anyway - love your blog and your style. I think I found you when google searching for Frye boots! I too own the brown Lisas and they are just perfect in every way.

    That MJ bag is amazing - I never see that style on ebay. What is the secret to finding one?

    1. Truthfully? Adrien found this one for me, and then found a purple one for herself not long afterwards. I usually set up a saved search, but also check regularly since not everyone may know the style name. And keep an eye on Bonanza as well. Good luck!

  2. I love the scarf too. And the jacket. And the bag. Basically you look really cute. What color do you have on your nails?

    1. I get so many compliments on that color, and it was in the dollar bin at Ross of all places! The brand is something I've never heard of, I'll check it when I get home and let you know. I'm glad you like it!

  3. I love it! Chic casual with amazing accessories!

  4. This is my default look too. Although, considering it's what I enjoy wearing most of the time, I think it's safe to say it's just "my look".

    I really like that jacket. The rolled sleeves layered over the long sleeve top is really cute.
