I know I’ve been a bit MIA lately — I’ve been spending a lovely 4 days on a sewing weekend with my girlfriend-wives and it has been heavenly. I love my family very much but sometimes Mama needs a break! We’ve spent the last four days sewing and drinking and sewing while drinking. It was exactly what I needed!
But today I’m here as part of the Where to Wear tour showing off some office wear that I made!
I am a full-time attorney and I work in a fairly conservative law office but I know many people don’t.
So I decided to do two looks — a more formal look that fits right in at a conservative law office as well as a “casual Friday” look that would be great for a more casual office as well!
My “formal” look is surprisingly comfortable. I used the Delia Creates Pleated Pencil skirt for the skirt and the Grainline Archer for a top (check out ALL my fitting modifications here).
The cardigan is the Wembly from the newest edition of Seamwork magazine. It went together surprisingly fast and I can already tell it will get a lot of wear!
I love pencil skirts for a formal office — it’s such a classic look! And I’m all about separates in every part of my life.
My casual Friday look draws heavily from Seamwork patterns. I went with the Akita top from the September issue and hacked the Astoria from the spring into a cardigan. The pants are my trusty Ginger jeans with the view A rise and the view B legs.
I always try to make my work wardrobe really versatile and that means making pieces that all work together. I love that I can mix up all these pieces and they still work!
