Black Friday was a work day for us. While everyone else was hitting the malls, we spent the day scouring the thrift shops.

It’s so different from the days when I commuted into center city to work in an office all day. I don’t miss it at all, but I do miss the wardrobe diversity that going out to work required. Now, my wardrobe is so casual! I’m always finding beautiful suits and dresses that I just don’t have anyplace to wear now.

For thrifting, comfort is the name of the game. My work uniform in the cold weather usually consists of layers, like this white tee shirt and cardigan. Pants with a stretch are a must.

As you can tell, it was a bit windy out and about, so my hair didn’t hold up well to the day! This is pretty much it in its natural state. If I just wash and let my hair air dry, it’s curls all over.

I have a collection of cardigans in all different colors. And, yes, my orange sneakers are making an appearance again! I almost think of them as a neutral now, and matched my bracelet to them for this outfit.

And just to share a great find that I just listed on eBay, this vintage 1970’s Gregg Draddy mini dress (size small)! Blog readers visiting my eBay store The Plum Shoppe using this link get 10% off all clothing.

Do those of you who work from home have your own working “uniform”?

I’m wearing:
Bobbie Brooks long-sleeved tee shirt (thrifted)
Ann Taylor cardigan (thrifted)
St. John’s Bay Secretly Slender bootcut jeans from JC Penney
