Outfit Of The Day: A Casual Friday (& Boyfriend Jeans + The J Crew Piped Foulard Shirt)

♫:  Walk Like An Egyptian – The Puppini Sisters

A more casual outfit for today. I freaked a good friend of mine out recently when I wore jeans (he claimed he hasn’t seen me in jeans in years) (he’s probably right), but I really like Zara’s denim line.

Well, let me clarify. I like the line as long as I can get the right size. I actually re-ordered the jeans that I am wearing below three different times–the first time the zipper was busted due to a rough transit, the second time the label SAID they were the exact same size as the first pair but they oddly fit about six sizes bigger, and the third time they were (finally!) just right. Are they worth all the hassle? I still think so–good jeans with a nice fit for petites are hard to find! The ankle length on this pair is a good inseam for us shorties, and the jeans that I am wearing below have enough stretch to make them comfy (but not too much stretch to give them a case of the saggy-sads by the end of the day). They also wash up pretty darn well.

And last but not least, the J Crew Piped Foulard Shirt. I have a lot of silk blouses, and while I love them dearly silk isn’t always the best material for hot, sweaty summer days. This pajama-inspired shirt is made out of a really soft cotton that’s structured while still being quite thin and breathable, and I can’t wait for the weather to warm up again so I can pair it with white shorts.  Love it–it might just be one of my most favorite J Crew purchases from the past 12 months (but I’m loving the rash guards too–more on those later!).

Have a good weekend, you guys! ♥

  • Shirt is looking quite formal but has a great match with your jeans and coat.

    Oh, I like that shirt very much on you! And now I want it myself. Could you, please, tell me about sizing. Does this shirt fit similar to jcrew’s perfect shirts or should I size up?

  • I love your outfit. So glad I found your blog, I’m a new follower!

    I agree with Sarah, Casual Chloe is adorable indeed! Love your regular style but the casual look is a nice change. :) I need to get those jeans too!

    • Yay! I’m glad ya liked it, I like it too. It’s fun to change things up every once in awhile and try something new. If you get the jeans, let me know how you like them!

  • I do most of my shopping online but it’s not always easy, especially when you order internationally as I often do.

    Your shirt is so cute!

    • Thanks so much, Annette! I’m happy to see that a lot more retailers are *finally* starting to offer more affordable international shipping options, but some retailers still have a long way to go with that stuff. I feel your frustration there, especially with some of my favorite UK and Italy-based retailers!
