Work Weekend Wow | Linen Joggers

Thank you to Nordstrom and Shop Style for sponsoring today’s post!

Hello friends! Today, we’re throwin’ it back to a reader favorite – Work Weekend Wow!

The concept of Work Weekend Wow is that I show you multiple ways to wear an item for different occasions; specifically, work, weekend and a night out (wow).  I know we all like to get the most out of our clothes by mixing and matching with other things in our closet, and also get the most bang for our buck.  So, as the title suggests, these posts feature one hero piece, then give you ideas for how to wear it at the office, on the weekend, and for date night.

I haven’t done one of these posts in awhile, so let me know if you want to see them again more regularly.

WORK WEEKEND WOW | BLACK JOGGERS

The hero piece for today is the very versatile Linen Joggers by Caslon at Nordstrom.  I know we all love a jogger for relaxing at home and running quick errands around town (I live and sleep in this cozy pair)!  Although you won’t be wearing that cozy pair to work or on a girls’ night out, the linen joggers are meant for all occasions.

These joggers are 100% cool linen with a functional drawstring waist.  The front and back pockets are in just the right places for a flattering silhouette.  They come in an array of colors – black, cognac, dark grey, navy and olive.  Caslon is a brand specific to Nordstrom and you won’t find it anywhere else!

JOGGERS FIT :  They fit TTS, I’m wearing XSP.  I’m happy to see that Nordstrom carries petite sizes through XXL in this brand. 

WORK | PINK BLOUSE AND BLACK JOGGERS

The linen joggers are great because you can easily dress them up for work with an appropriate blouse and shoe, but you’ll still be comfortable and stylish!

To keep your outfit looking professional and for a nice silhouette, wear a top that’s on the fitted side and can be tucked into the joggers.

The (Ruthie Ridley) split neck blouse is part of the Gibson collaboration for International Women’s Day.  It’s made of a crepe material with a bit of stretch, split neck, cap sleeve and curved hem.  I’m wearing the fuschia, a pretty bold pink, and it also comes in six more solid colors.

BLOUSE FIT : Runs large, wearing XSP.  Many of the Gibson pieces at Nordstrom come in a wide range of sizes from XXSP to 3x.

Isn’t the gathering at the shoulder a nice detail?

If you can get away with open toe shoes at work, I like these wedges.  They look like a strappy heel from the front, but have the comfort of a wedge.

WEEKEND | BLACK JOGGERS & TANK WITH JEAN JACKET

Weekends are my favorite!  It’s great to get to chill after a long, stressful week and relax and catch up on chores and things around the house.  These joggers transition perfectly from work to weekend with a tee or tank, jean jacket, and sneakers or flip flops.

I’m sure you’ve heard me raving about this tank before.  It’s so extra soft (apparently they’re a special enzyme that makes it so soft- who knew??) and it’s perfectly slouchy chic.  You can grab it in your favorite color since it comes in 8 shades.  The tee comes in 13 colors for Spring.

TANK FIT : TTS, I wear XS

Similarly, this jean jacket is a Must Have in your wardrobe.  It’s a great quality, nice and stretchy and soft, but substantial enough to keep the chill away.

JACKET FIT : It’s a shrunken fit, I’m wearing XS.  If you want to be able to drape it off your shoulders, I’d size up.

I prefer being hands free on the weekends, and this crossbody bag is perfect for that.  It’s a slim, sleek style so it won’t overwhelm your frame. You can also carry it as a clutch or put it inside your larger tote to keep your things organized.

Do you recognize this necklace from Hespera Designs?!  He was at Ali-Shaun’s house for that trunk show.  Unfortunately, my exact necklace isn’t available at Nordstrom, but they do carry many more of his designs.

The converse slip on sneaker is a classic, especially this time of year!  They’re easy to pull on with the hidden elastic at the tongue and I love the non-tie laces!

WOW | BLACK JOGGERS AND LACE TRIM CAMISOLE

The “WOW” look is always a fun one to put together and wear.  You might remember this lace trim camisole from my last Dressing Room post.  I love it with these joggers for a night out! Get it now while it’s 50% off!  Nordstrom’s Spring Sale started yesterday!  #whohoo!

I love this one because the quality is first rate, with material on the slightly thicker side and the black lace detail continues on the racerback.  You can also adjust the shoulder straps.  I’m wearing my strapless bra with it and it doesn’t show.  If you feel more comfortable covered, you can always layer a cardigan over it!

And look at the delicate, sassy racerback!

Aren’t these leopard heels fierce?!  They amp up almost any outfit and I always get tons of compliments on them!

LEOPARD HEELS FIT : These run small, definitely size up half.

As for the earrings, this oval version of a classic hoop is dainty and simple.  There’s no “back” they just slide through your ear.

Y’all have seen me carrying a bracelet bag on repeat.  Think of a bracelet bag as the sophisticated sister to your clutch.  You can wear it crossbody style the the detachable shoulder strap, but I love carrying it by the metal circle handle.  I like it so much, I bought it in both black and brown.

So, should I bring back Work Weekend Wow more regularly?  What do you do for work? I’d love to hear!  Could you wear the Work jogger outfit? 

I hope y’all have the best weekend!

    How much do these stretch and sag after wearing? I love the look but don’t want to look sloppy.

    Such great suggestions! I have some black joggers that are a less casual fabric, but maybe I can still do the weekend look with them.

    Wondering if you could have worn an xx petite? They look a little big on you. Just asking because you and I have the same build and I’d like to order these.

      That’s what I was wondering, so I did order the XXSP and they were too tight on me. So, my true size XSP fit best:)
