The irony is not lost on me that I’m posting a “work to weekend” look about a week after I shared the news that I left my corporate job. If you missed it, I shared last week about my decision to stay home with Nicholas (and hopefully work a bit more on my blog too 😉 ). After eleven years in the corporate world, it honestly has felt very strange to not have “work” e-mails to check or projects and deadlines to worry about at night. On the other hand, it has only been a few weeks but have already been guilty of wondering what day of the week it is as I’m doing stuff during the week that previously I would have only done on the weekend.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know I am a big fan of pieces that can be worn multiple ways. It’s pretty obvious when it is a pair of jeans or black pants, but statement pieces like this tweed jacket are worth an investment to me if I can easily wear it multiple ways- and for many years. This Rebecca Taylor jacket is a definite splurge, but it is so classic, you know you’ll be wearing it for like a decade!
For the work look, I paired the jacket with a cream shell, my favorite skinny pants for work and my trusty wedges that I wore non-stop in the office. For weekend, I made the jacket brunch ready by pairing with jeans, cute flats and layering over a casual tee. You could swap out the solid tee for a white lace top or change the jeans out for white jeans if you wanted a little lighter look. Like I said, this jacket is super versatile! Oh and while I’m calling the first look a “work” look, who says you can’t wear it for a bridal or baby shower where you just don’t feel like wearing a dress?
Any other items you’d like to see styled multiple ways? Let me know!
