Diamonds can be a girl's best friend, their sparkle and their worth, especially when other carbon-based materials prove disappointing. Unfortunately, for now, my sole diamonds are encased within two rings, a Victorian setting engagement ring from my great-grandmother and as flanking accents in an amethyst ring from my grandmother. I do rock the rhinestone look, however, on occasion; a girl can dream and pretend, even after she has grown. For casual Friday this past week, I integrated feminine and masculine elements: overly girlish costume jewelry with a camel suit jacket and a blue striped men's button-down shirt.
The jacket sleeves are full-length, but with the shirt intended for a rather tall man, the cuffs peek out at the ends.
White and baby blue stripes are a classic, and when worn with the warm camel of the jacket, are a great combination for what turned out to be a pleasantly spring sunshine day.
I took advantage of the casual nature of professional Fridays, and opted for a pair of fitted cigarette dark denim jeans; they create a very polished look, while maintaining the comfort factor.
A subtle zipper detail accents the ankle portion of my jeans.
