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.
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
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
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!
