Welcome to Weekday Wardrobe, a series in which one Who What Wear editor or staffer will snap a pic of the outfits they wear from Monday to Friday. We’ll break down where you can shop it all to inspire your own everyday style, no matter what’s on your weekly agenda.
I’m grateful to have Natalie Cantell as my boss for many reasons, including but not limited to the following: She has taught me literally everything I know about working in the fashion industry; she has a very cute Goldendoodle named Ruby (pictured below), who’s equal parts naughty and adorable; and she has that casual-yet-put-together style that I’m forever trying to emulate. While all of those things hold value to me, the last point is what I’m here to talk about today.
I once sat a mere 36 inches away from Natalie five days a week, but now that we’re working from home, things are a bit different. By that I mean, instead of taking notes on her style choices each day, I have to ask her to stand up during video meetings so I can see what she’s wearing. (I’m so annoying—I know.) Since Natalie’s weekday outfits have been so good lately, I kindly asked her to document them. Lucky for you and me, she had just received a huge haul from Free Assembly, the ultra-affordable line that carries everyday essentials designed to be mixed, matched, and layered to your heart’s desire. Below, Natalie’s sharing a week’s worth of outfits from the brand complete with all the best under-$58 essentials for spring. Don’t worry, I made her spill her styling tips, too.
