Stripes and straight hair....

Every week when it gets to Friday, I thank my lucky stars that I don't work in an office with a dress code. When you can wear nearly anything you like (within reason!) casual Fridays are a thing of the past. This outfit is ridiculously comfy but I know denim shorts (however fancy they are) just wouldn't fly in the majority of workplaces so I do feel very lucky! These photos were taken before the clocks went back and I cannot wait to start taking photos outside again in the morning before I go to work. These ones required some (minimal) editing but brightening them is a small price to pay for being outside again, lighter mornings are just so hopeful feeling! I really love this H&M top, they really make the best Breton tops on the high street. I am seriously tempted to get this blue version too...

Top: H&M, shorts: Jaeger, tights: Tesco, shoes: Clarks
I told you that I have been experimenting with my hair recently and I really love it straight. I never used to straighten (or even style) it much but since chopping all of my hair off, it has been so quick and easy to do, 15 minutes tops, rather than the hour and a half it took previously! I still prefer sleeping on my hair once I have straightened it though, I prefer a less polished and more lived in look!  This lipstick is one of my favourites and is perfect for brightening up my grumpy morning face. I'm not quite sure why I look so unsure here, I guess it still felt too early to be up and about... 


These shorts could really do with an iron but just look how cool they are! Although they may not look it here, they are actually longer than your average denim shorts and are made out of a gorgeous soft linen chambray fabric- what they lack in the sartorial stakes they make up for in comfort value!


What do you wear on casual Friday? Any tips for getting that perfectly undone look with my hair?

Casual Fridays for me often mean flat shoes and shorts with tights and a quirky print blouse or a jumper when it's colder.

I love working in an office where I can go as casual as I want no matter what day of the week.
I love those shorts - they look like they fit so well. And your hair is looking fab-u-lous.

Those shorts are so different, very pretty. I like a bit of salt spray for a gentle tousling look :) x

Your hair is so pretty here. If I didn't have to take long to style my hair I would DEFINITELY look a lot less like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards!
