Embracing the casual Friday

On Friday I took a more comfortable approach to my work outfit. These shorts couldn't be paired with a tee shirt because that is just a little too casual for the office so it was the old standby light cotton tunic, the very same one from my first day at work. I tucked it in to keep my bottom half from looking like it was hiding in a circus tent. Then added some delicate silver accessories and dainty three-strap mary jane's, and called it a day.
It was lucky for me I was in clothes that let me move so freely because Friday was the day I worked up the courage to approach the NYC Jugglers in Bryant Park. I see them there sometimes and as an ex-circus addict I wanted to show off my own very rudimentary juggling skills. It was such a nice way to spend a few minutes during my lunch hour. Chatting with some new people and getting to move around and soak up the sunshine that filled the lawn. The man who runs the program told me I should come back and he would teach me to juggle clubs. Oh, what a hobby that would be! I promise to get a few pictures next week for you!

I also wanted to share this video with you. I found it tonight, and I think it has an excellent message. Sometimes I worry that there is something wrong with me when I am lonely, and conversely when I crave alone time.

  1. Lovely top! I am lucky that the restaurant I work at is super casual, so I get to dress just about about as casual or cute as I want haha!

  4. I really liked the video. I am ok with being alone in some places. But it got me thinking about places I have been avoiding because I am alone (the movies, resturants, clubs). I use the excuse that I don't have anyone to go with.

    So thank you for sharing it! It has definitely motivated me to go out and not be afraid of those public places when I am alone!

    -Love your outfit by the way!
