#WORKWEAR WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY...

...a couple of days ago on Facebook someone pulled up a picture of a cape I made last winter - since a lot of people really "liked" it  I decided to wear it today this week:  first because there was a little chill factor going on  at 37 degrees, and secondly because I LOVE IT! Both pieces of today's WORKWEAR are throwbacks from last winter. Here's the pattern combination that was worn on Wednesday:
McCall's 6209 & 7014
My falling madly in love with the designs that two other bloggers (Tasha & Michelle) made prompted me making the pieces.  I just knew the cape was ME when I first laid eyes on Tasha's, and it was such a good thing that I was able to find some wool herringbone tweed in my stash to make a jumper similar to the the one Michelle made for her daughter - I think I would have had a complete come-a-part if I hadn't.  I JUST HAD-TO-HAVE that dress!  When I first wore it the thing that made me feel so good was when a co-worker said, "I saw a dress just like that at the Ralph Lauren store this weekend, did you get it there?"  JACKPOT! for me as far as I was concerned!



Wednesday was a very good work wear day, so on Thursday I decided the cape deserved a replay.

McCall's 5978 & McCall's 6654

 
This time paired with my "snow flake" knit pencil skirt and a racer cut cowl neck racer cut top (which was frankenpatterned because I was HIGHLY obsessed with having at the time- need to make more for sure) cardi twin set I made way back in the day.

I just love a comfortable, non-restricted work wear day, since I'm moving non-stop interacting with 69 students during the course of the day...

    1. Thank you Lisa I felt real good wearing them. Just made my third cape this time for my daughter. I think that's enough for a while.

  7. Great stylings! Do you normally wear neutral colors to work? Sometimes I end up wearing the same colors all throughout one week by coincidence lol. This week, all my outfits may be from a red color palette and then next week, I'll be wearing all cool colors lol

    1. Tasha I do normally wear lots of neutrals - sometimes with little pops of color. It can tend to get a little boring but neutrals make it easier and quicker for me to dress in the mornings.

  10. Go head Faye looking fierce in both outfits with and without the cape. Isn't it lovely to be able to say "I did This"? I am glad that Ralph inspired me to make the jumper and that I was able to inspire you to make yours! That's what makes the world go round. -Michelle www.thatblackchic.com
