I've been following The Closet Coach as she posts The 5 levels of a Working Mom Outfits.   Today my outfit is from Level 3, which she calls Casual Friday or "everyday" working uniform for those of us in more laid-back work situations.

On this day the weather report was sketchy and I had errands to run, along with dropping into a client's office.  They have a pretty laid back office, so I went with what I call Smart Casual.   Blouse - Winners , Cardigan - Banana Republic,  Trouser jeans - Ann Taylor, Shoes - Fluevog,  Belt - Addition Elle, Bracelet - Ann Taylor Outlet and Necklace - Shanti Uganda from Nicole Bridger store.

I love this bracelet from the Ann Taylor Outlet in Portland. It was a shiny thing that got my attention while on my Blogher trip this summer.  Had to have it.  And I wear it ALL the time.   And my son loves to snap things with it.

This was also the first day of my trying to take my own photos - with my tripod.  The lighting isn't greatest, but this is the tidiest part of my house - the door to my bedroom.

Back to the Closet Coach Levels:

  • level 1 is what I'd call the park/play date outfit
  • level 2 is cute weekend
  • level 3 is casual friday
  • level 4 is the client meeting
  • level 5 (I expect) is all out glam

I guess this is post also my Follow Fashion Friday recommendation. http://twitter.com/#!/closetcoach
