If you've been reading for very long, you probably remember when we started sharing a few of our workday outfits in a feature we call "Work Wears" last year (see the archives here). We thought we'd spruce this feature up a little for 2015 and share two to three outfits from our week with you in each post. So here goes nothing…
I also have to point out my shirt—my good friend, Mallory, made it and I love it. She's awesome. You might remember Mallory from way back when she interned with us. And now she makes and sells her own independent clothing line. Go Mallory!
I'm currently really into over-sized shirts or sweaters with leggings, so cozy. I must admit though that I would consider these shoes more "date night" shoes than office wear. I like them with this outfit though, so I wore them. But I also had brought a pair of flats to the office as well because I knew I wasn't going to be at my desk all day. I did a little work in the wood shop (working on some bookends I'll hopefully share with you soon!), and I did some work in the kitchen too.
One thing I worked on was a blueberry cake donut with a crumb topping (like a muffin). The first round that I made turned out OK in the taste/texture department but was very, well, ugly. We passed them around the office, but I'll be working on this some more before it will be something I'd share with you. It's just not quite there yet.
Also, this batter sort of matched my outfit that day. So… that's cool.
