Ahh…one of life’s great questions. What can I wear to work that looks professional, yet is still fun enough to take into the night (aka happy hour)? Today, I’m teaming up with my girl Jenna from Visions of Vogue to share our takes on easy day-to-night looks.
As I am settling into my 30’s, I have found that I am becoming more and more fond of function. Don’t get me wrong, being fashionable is still a must, but my feet aren’t what they used to be and definitely let me know (a lot sooner) when they aren’t feeling my footwear choice. I’ve been gravitating toward heels that stand the test of time (literally), that I can wear all day. When thinking about heels I can wear from day to night, I always go for a chunky heel. These caged gladiator sandals are some of my favorites. (They are currently on sale for $44!)
An oversized blazer is an easy way to add a bit of professionalism to any, otherwise “fun”, look. It’s easy to throw on at the office, and take off on your way to happy hour.
Another trick I try to do when taking a look from day-to-night is an easy bag change. I definitely need a full size bag or tote, to get me through the day, but a small shoulder bag or clutch feels more night appropriate. Try bringing along a “night” bag that fits easily into your “day” bag. It makes for a seamless switch, on your way to meet up with friends. I’ll be sharing more about these R.Riveter bags in another post. Stay tuned for more on that.
