Getting the Most Out of Your Work Wardrobe

Share this post:

Not too long ago I took a quick poll on my Instagram Stories asking about the things you guys would like to see when it comes to fashion content. While I got some great ideas (i.e. a post or video on jeans is in the works), one of the most requested was outfits to wear outside of work. Since I work from home and am in a very creative industry, a good majority of my wardrobe is my “fun” clothes. But back when I worked in the corporate world, I had a pretty distinct and separate work wardrobe and “fun” wardrobe, but I had a few pieces that could work in both scenarios.

So in this post, I’m going to quickly show you how I reworked a plaid blazer (it’s from Cabi Clothing!) for the office as well as for the weekend. Keep scrolling to shop more wardrobe pieces I’ve picked out for you that can be rocked both at the office and on the weekend.
