What To Wear On Casual Friday

I share outfit ideas for busy moms all the time. This post is focused more on busy moms who work in an office. I’ve done a few posts on business casual looks but I wanted to share some fresh, new outfit ideas. More specifically…for casual Friday at the office!

Look #1

Casual Friday office outfit idea featuring high waist, cropped camel culotte pants from Club Monaco, a white ALC turtleneck and Rag & Bone hat on blonde woman at Grand Canyon


The first outfit I want to share with you is so chic! I shot this look during our visit to the Grand Canyon and the scenery is just gorgeous! I’m wearing a mesh turtleneck crop top by ALC. This exact top is sold out, but I linked a similar one above. And, many of you may prefer a regular turtleneck anyway. So, just wear a classic white turtleneck.

In this look, I wore it with these wide-leg pants from Club Monaco. The pleating on these is so flattering and the tailoring makes them a little dressier for the office. I also love the tie waist detail! They come in four colors (size down). To keep warm I wore some boots, but you could also wear pumps. The hat elevates the look even more but obviously ditch the hat in the office!

The second casual Friday outfit is a cardigan look. I shared it in my cardigans video here. I’m wearing a super flattering Felicity & Coco black dress. It’s a really great work dress and under $100! It has feminine, ruffle sleeves and is a conservative length for the office. Next, I added this cardigan over the dress and tied it together with a chic belt. This look is pretty, comfortable, and chic (not to mention warm). I threw on some croc embossed Michael Kors slingbacks, but you could also wear flats.

Look #3Business casual outfit idea, culottes, ruffle blouse, fashion over 40

This last look one I shared in two posts last year here and here. I love how feminine it is! The ruffled top is so pretty and these Leith culottes are a great alternative to the same old black pants. Pair it with a classic pair of pumps and a great handbag and you’re ready to go! This exact handbag by Brahmin is sold out but I linked another…all of the Brahmin bags are so beautiful and luxe-looking!

Remember that you can recreate the same look using pieces you already own. For example, swap the blouse I’m wearing with a pretty option from your closet. Be sure to tuck it in!

Small Work Tote for the office for petite women by Vince Camuto

Work Tote

I think one of the hardest things to find for the office is a work tote. Vince Camuto makes really classic, modern options in a variety of sizes, which I appreciate as a petite woman. I don’t always want a huge tote. The “Lina” (above) comes in three colors and is considered a small tote. It will fit a small laptop.

  1. ThanKs so much, Erin for sharing your knowledge of style and inspiration. I’ve watched several of your youtube videos and found tHem really helpfUl For “instantly elevating mY look”.
    Best wishes,

  2. Love, love, lov,e your style and have purchased many items you’ve recommended. This post on casual Friday is quite dressy and very conservative. Manybe that’s the style trend but I don’t find it flattering. I also wish you could list some lower priced options, especially for good quality handbags.

    1. I always try to have a mix of prices. I can do another workwear video or post that is more casual… sure! Great idea. Thanks, Heidi! Erin xo
