Weekend Wardrobe v Weekday Wardrobe

Since I started the Jacket Society blog and womens Jacket line back in August of 2013, I have been working from home. This has been a big transition for me since prior to that I had a full time job that I had to be in an office daily and dress accordingly. Actually most of my life I have had that kind of a job schedule and quite frankly I liked that schedule with the exception of a few years when my son was young and I felt I was missing out on his growing up. As you all know when you have your own business your mind never really shuts down from thinking about work. But when your office/studio is also at home, it is even harder to distinguish specific work/play time. So I basically work 24/7, that does not mean I work all the time, it just means that I might work less on a week day but work all day Sunday. Your schedule becomes a lot more flexible and for the first time in my life I kind of like this schedule. I think it’s because I am older and I can discipline myself enough to be able to balance things the right way. This was a lot harder when I was younger, I really needed an office space and office hours to set my mind to work and then shut down. Having explained all this, my wardrobe habits have also changed with the changes in my work environment. What I wear during the week as work wardrobe is not that different from my weekend wardrobe.
For example here is what I wore last Saturday for lunch and running some errands. One of my favorite jackets I own which is not a Jacket Society piece nevertheless I wear it all the time. I love that it has a tailored clean look but because of its boxy shape you can wear it casually with anything. Today I chose to wear it with my white jeans which I wear year round and my favorite Cole Haan loafers. This outfit can easily be one of my outfits during the work week when I run downtown to source fabric or meet with my contractors.
How about you, do you have a weekend wardrobe v weekday wardrobe.
