Last week I attended the Lauch Party in downtown Chicago. As you can imagine, since City Blue is a men and women’s denim and apparel boutique, everywhere I turned there were people looking rather chic. I also noticed a lot of the outfits in the room could easily be worn to the office on a “Casual Friday”, and then out on the town after work! After browsing City Blue’s new online store, the cause for celebration, I put together this outfit. The sheer neutral blouse is right on trend, but still looks polished when tucked into colored jeans. These pieces, both available at, are versatile and can be dressed up for work or down for the weekend. I finished the look with neutral heels and a bright statement necklace and purse. I enjoyed mingling with such fashionable folks and hope you’re inspired to have fun on Casual Friday with!

Great post! When I worked in corporate America, business casual or casual Fridays were always such a challenge. I think they are harder to put together than business attire. My company creates detachable dickey collars that are a popular accessory for those days. @holidickeys
