Lately, I've been struggling to put an outfit together that can take me from my desk, to dinner. Those mornings when I know I won't have time to stop at home, I stare at my closet full of clothes and notice how I have nothing that will work. And I know I'm not the only one!
I want a look appropriate for the office, but fun and trendy for happy hour. I typically end up going with a traditional, black pant, silk cami and white blazer look. Snooooooze-fest!
To help get me out of this slump, I put together some stylish desk-to-dinner options I
want need in my closet...yesterday!
Opt for a bright color when purchasing your next pencil skirt. It's a nice change to the traditional, black, tan or navy we see so much of. The color adds a fun, youthful feel which enables you to take this look from your desk to dinner. The peplum top completes the look and can easily be styled with black skinnies or jeans for the weekend. **Shop HERE
A textured blouse adds personality to any look - like this Cooper & Ella one. Because the blouse is interesting on its own, I kept the rest of the look simple. A basic black pant, delicate necklace and mini bag will do the trick. I do love a pop of color and decided to add it in the shoes. You don't need to do anything when leaving the office - this will take you straight to happy hour. **Shop HERE
This look is a favorite of mine, if you work in a more creative setting. If wearing a sweatshirt to work, even with the embellishments, doesn't suit you, opt for a basic tee and black blazer. At quittin' time, lose the blazer and throw on a statement necklace and you're ready to go. **Shop HERE
There was a time when I wouldn't be caught dead wearing black and navy. As you can see, times have changed and this look just works. I'll spare you the adjectives, as this look does all of the talking for itself. **Shop HERE
Perfect for jeans day or casual Friday. Add a fun necklace and you're good to go! **Shop HERE
