Fridays are casual days in our office. I work for a Law Firm and I am very cautious about how I dress down for casual Fridays. It was an office joke that I was dressed up not down for casual Fridays. To be honest working in corporate america for so many years without a casual day, I really didn't know how to dress down. I would wear a suit, dress or dress pants with a jacket Monday through Friday, pantyhose and heels included. So I decided to revamp my wardrobe a little and try and dress it down a little. I don't care to wear jeans because most of my jeans I don't feel are corporate appropriate, but I love denim. So I made these relaxed fit denim pants that feel like butter on.
The fabric is from Joann's and I didn't want anything stiff or uncomfortable, but something loose that could still be crisp for work. NewLook 6351 was a perfect pattern for what I was looking for.
