Theory suit jacket & pant via Suit & Sweet c/o | JCrew blouse | Nine West heels | H&M bag | H&M necklace | Jeweliq necklace
The 5 suits I purchased as a sophomore in college for mock trial competitions are still in great condition & they’re neutral enough to wear today. But every once in awhile I find myself cruising the interwebs for new threads. There’s absolutely no reason to purchase a new suit at this point [price included] but it’s always fun to test out new flavors.
My new lady pals at Suit & Sweet have recently cornered the market on this conundrum; For less than 1/4 of the retail rate, S&S rents you fab suits in top condition for a designated number of days for whatever event is coming your way. This is great for those of you that don’t currently own formal business suits & need to spruce up for an upcoming conference or presentation but don’t want to sink hundreds into something that you’ll rarely wear. I;m also a huge fan of this new find – it let’s me experiment with new styles & brands so that when it’s time to bite the bullet on a new suit I have a better idea of what I’m interested in.

After yesterday’s post, I received quite a few emails about how exactly to take a work look straight from the office to happy hour / date night / girl party at the local wine bar. Every outfit & destination is, of course, it’s own situation but making 3 subtle changes will make a world of difference no matter what you’re wearing or where you’re going, & most importantly, who you’re meeting.
Desk: Work bag | Drinks: Oversized clutch
You can still pour all of the essentials from your day bag into your happy hour hand-held, just leave the unnecessary bulk at the office. There’s no need for your 3 inch planner & 16 different hand lotions at the local watering hole
Desk: Nude lip | Drinks: Dark [seasonal] lip
If you can get away with a colored lip in the halls of your office then more power to you. If not, leave the dark stuff in your desk drawer ’til it’s quittin’ time & stick with a lighter look during daylight hours. When it’s a little warmer out, I gravitate towards a pop of pink for most outdoor occasions
Desk: Patent pumps | Drinks: Metallic flats
The last thing I’m interested in doing after 8+ hours in 3 inch heels is frolicking around town in another or, even worse, the same pair of heels. Read my lips: Flats don’t have to be dull. Invest in a fun pair to slip into once the bar specials roll around. By closing time, you’ll be thankful that you did!
