On a weekly basis, I make plans with friends to go get dinner or drinks after work. I technically could go home and change after work, but that just feels like such a waste of time. So transitioning my work outfit from day to night is something I've become quite accustomed to. I work in an office where I dress in business casual attire every day. This means I’m usually wearing dress pants, a blouse, and flats or low heels. I hate when I meet up with a friend but I feel like I’m coming in my “work clothes”. It usually just takes a few simple tweaks to turn a work- appropriate outfit into something a little more fun.
If I know I have plans with friends that evening, I'll usually wear my cropped dress pants to work. These are a little more fun, with the zippers on the back of the legs and the crop style, but still work appropriate. I'll pair this with a cute blouse that isn't too stuffy. I love this blouse from 724 because it's professional but still feminine and casual. After work, I'll usually slip into a pair of shoes that are a little more playful, but still go well with my outfit. I love these studded heels because they're edgy but still go with my work clothes. I tend to keep my jewelry pretty simple for work so I love finding necklaces that still feel like "me" but are not too bold for the office. This necklace is perfect because it's understated but has some cool spiky beads.
All it takes is a little planning ahead with my outfit to find something both fun and professional. And of course, throwing in an extra pair of shoes or some fun accessories to switch things up for my evening plans! Happy hour ready!
Thanks for stopping by!
