With no causal Friday allowed at work, I wear dressy casual clothes all week. However, I do wear slightly less dressy outfits on Fridays.
This week, I wore button down patterned jean shirt- perfectly casual but still appropriate for our dress code. Somehow, it is still cold here. Therefore, I paired the shirt with a striped long sleeve t-shirt underneath, a full skirt, leggings, and knee-high boots. Yes, it is that cold here!
These knee-high boots got a LOT of wear this winter. Admittedly, I did not rotate my shoes very heavily this winter. These boots go with just about every dress/skirt I own!
And then an infinity scarf (also seen here):
The striped top under the denim top added some nice contrast to the outfit. I kept the sleeves rolled to show more of the stripes:
This outfit was so comfortable- perfect for a Friday!

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Every piece I wore in this outfit is a ‘heavy rotation’ piece, meaning I wear them very regularly. I have had the leggings, skirt, and coat for over 3-5 years. Many pieces you get on sale can have a very long shelf life! If you’ve seen my other posts, you know that I try and make my clothes wearable all year round. When it gets warmer, I’ll pair my denim shirt with a tank top underneath and brightly colored full skirt. The boots will be shelved (one day soon!) until fall.
2) Even if you work somewhere without a casual Friday allowance, there are still plenty of ways to be comfortable in skirts and leggings…and still be dressy!
