What NYC Recessionista Wears: chambray tunic

The term “Casual Friday” has grown to have such an unfortunate connotation. I don’t know about you, but it makes me think of polo shirts and khakis. Or “Hawaiian Shirt Day” in the movie Office Space. So, I really do try to put in a little extra effort on Fridays.  By the end of the work week, I want to be comfortable but I do still need to look polished.

This past Friday, I wore one of my favorite tunics …

Earrings c/o NY & Company (similar) / Uniqlo tunic (similar) / Gap cardigan / Target belt (similar here and here) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova (similar) / LOFT skinny pants / Clarks boots 

This chambray tunic was a random purchase one day during my lunch hour, but it’s since become one of my favorite pieces. I love that it’s a lighter shade for spring, and that it has pockets.

One of my favorite color combinations is navy and burgundy … I love how preppy and academic it feels đŸ™‚
