Casual Friday Chic: Olivia Palermo

Casual Friday, as much as I used to look forward to it, has started to wear me down dear readers!  Blasphemy, I know, but lately I have found that my Friday wardrobe has gotten pretty stagnant: jeans (either skinny or wide leg), paired with a sweater or a silk blouse, and heels.   Blah!  There are only so many times you can wear different variations of the same outfit!

So, in my search for a Friday outfit jolt, I came across this:

Olivia Palermo in a scoop-neck sweater that she teamed with a leather-sleeved topper, statement necklace, skinny jeans and cap-toe pumps.
I love that this outfit is basically the classic ensemble of jeans-and-a-blazer, but Olivia makes it fun with unexpected  twists.  For instance, the blazer has amazing leather sleeves, the top is paired with a bold statement necklace, and the heels have a multicolor cap toe.  Though, she makes sure to balance the fun elements with light-wash skinny denim.  This look is just traditional enough to be office appropriate, but just fun enough to inspire.  Love.

Here are some similar blazers so that you can make this look your own:
