Back in my younger years, I’d always show up to work in skirts & heels. I don’t even know how many pairs of heels I owned back then…a lot. Now that I’m a busy single working mom, I prefer the casual Friday look with jeans, a stylish top and comfortable shoes. Since I work from home, every day is like casual Friday! I can comfortably go from kindergarten drop off to grocery shopping to meetings and back home to work without having to change. Yes, working from home does mean I could stay in pyjamas all day (trust me, it’s tempting) but the pyjama look isn’t so professional for video chat meetings and school volunteer work. I’ve gathered some comfortable & stylish casual work outfits for women & men here that won’t break your budget.
Casual Work Outfits for Women:
I still love wearing heels but I save them for a dinner date and stick to comfortable shoes during the day. I’m on the go a lot and running in heels isn’t as easy as they make it look in the movies.
I visited Mark’s to pick out some new jeans, shirts, casual footwear and accessories. Mark’s is my go-to place for buying jeans; in fact, every pair of jeans I own is from Mark’s! I find them really comfortable, stretchy and they hold their shape and colour well even after multiple washes.
For my own back-to-school look, I chose:
