You’re not working, but you’re not not working either

You know what’s great about Fridays in June?

Unofficially, they’re like the antithetical third day of the acknowledged-by-the-Gregorian-calendar-as-we-know-it weekend.

This is technically more impressive than the Fridays of July because by then, the wheels of summer are in motion and we’ve become so well acclimated to our newfangled three days conceivably off that they start to seem like a God given right.

By August, we’re gearing up for the September that invariably follows (live a little, calendar! Throw us a curveball in the form of a July re-do!), and therefore, too, the end of our proverbial book report extensions (you know what I mean, right?).

So in this sweet spot — these magical Fridays that still find us at work though not really working — stationed between our respective senses of entitlement and the beginning of the end of our long weekends, let’s do what we can to keep the hours left indoors interesting and the inspiration that transcends physical location at an all time spectacular.

Up this week is a reliable glance through the denim look book of our lives, starring though not exclusively featuring Marilyn Monroe, Freja Beha and the very reliable Levi Strauss. An important question to consider is this: will we ever get sick of denim?

I’ll let you be the judge.

    Fabulous post! I’m not sure we’ll ever get sick of denim. It’s too much of a classic – and too fun!

  • Emilia Petrarca

    I’m so glad you posted this because I’m currently chillin in a Canadian tuxedo at an office where no one else appears to be participating in casual Friday.

      I love her unapologetic camel toe. It also just occurred to me that I am less likely to buy pants if they don’t split my hooves.

      • Emma Hager

        Yes! As I always say, nothing beats a good 70s camel toe!

    Also, NB to Team MR: This post made me think twice before I unloaded some old denim. I pulled two pairs of jeans from the Beacon’s Closet bag before my friend schlepped it away. Thanks, MR, for saving me from myself.
