Dressing for work can be challenging enough; having another event on the calendar after a long day only adds to the daily struggle of “I have nothing to wear.” (Go ahead and give this post a like, if ya feel me!)
Living in NYC or any commuter city eliminates the ability to throw clothes and shoes into the trunk of a car for an outfit swap after work. Instead, you’re pretty much stuck with what you put on that morning. So, shop pieces that can easily take you from that 9-to-5 to a spontaneous happy hour with friends!
Allow me to share one way to master the post-work transition with one easy hack! For this look, I wore a simple button-down, a white lace skirt, a statement necklace and cork splatter painted heels. Keeping the shirt tucked in during the day kept my look professional for business meetings, drawing attention to my accent pieces: necklace, shoes and bag. To transition for post-work affairs, I ditched the necklace and made my tailored button-down fun and flirty by tying the ends into a bow. This simple hack transformed my look without requiring me to tote additional clothing to work.
Grab a button-down with a newfound appreciation, or shop new blouses to hack those too. If you’d like to see more transitional looks, let me know in the comments below or email me with specific looks you have in mind!
