Laid Back and Low Key

How much better does a Friday feel when you’re on vacation? Okay well we’re not really on vacation, it’s more of a trip, we’ve got our kids and are staying somewhere with a washer + dryer and a dishwasher so it’s a trip but either way, it doesn’t involve going into the office and that’s a bonus.

We escaped Louisville for fall break in Asheville where I was hoping to be greeted with fall-like temperatures and leaves turning. But alas, it’s just like Louisville, 85+ degrees and wompy as hell. I was sweating my a*& off at dinner today but again, no complaints when we’ve escaped life and laundry for the weekend.

Anyways on to today’s post where I’m sharing my traditional Friday outfit. Whether I’m going to the office or working from home, Fridays call for a laid-back uniform (unless meetings are involved but meetings on Fridays are the pits). This combination is my latest favorite, especially these two-tone leggings that look like pants. When it comes to holding everything in, these get an A+ grade. Plus the zipper detail makes them more office-appropo.

I know not everyone has a laid-back office atmosphere but if you can get away with casual Fridays, you need these. Not having to worry about dress code is legit my favorite thing about running my own business. Sometimes I want to wear heels and sometimes I’d rather do just about anything than put on regular pants. You win some, you lose some.

Speaking of owning your own biz, big thanks to anyone who voted for both Lou What Wear and Lemonade PR in the Leo Weekly Awards. Lou What Wear came in third in the Best Local Blog category and Lemonade came in second in the Best Local PR Firm category. Such a nice, unexpected recognition and so very, very thankful for it.

Adidas EQT Sneakers

No lie, these are my favorite everyday sneakers I’ve had in a while. I want them in like four other colors, especially these pink-ish ones. I bought a pair before our trip to Orlando and wore them OUT that weekend. I’ve been wearing them ever since but, in just a month, I’ve worn them so much that it looks like I’ve had them for a year (that’s indicative of how much I’ve worn them and not their quality). Love the look and fit. And now they come in so many colorways.
