It’s officially summer, and you know what that means, my friend. We all want to get outside immediately after spending the whole day inside the office, and enjoy a cocktail on a patio in the sunset! And we’re going to look damn good while doing it, too. Worried about looking too formal for your evening plans after you leave the office, but don’t have time to go home and change? Let me show you 3 ways to transition your outfit after work!
If you’ve followed me for a while or worked with me, you know I’m all about setting up your wardrobe foundation with the best quality basics you can afford. No matter the season, you should always have multiple pieces that you can wear with just about anything! And then from there, it’s all about the details: you can switch out your jewelry, your bag, your shoes, or any top layer to take your look from day to night! Whether you’re at the office or at happy hour, I’m always here to make sure you’re leveling up. Keep scrolling to see some of my tips!

The most important step! Whether it’s a dress in an eye-catching color, a simple, well-fitting top, or basic pants that are tailored to your shape – make sure you have a great foundation! I promise it’ll set you up for success!
2. Pick an outer layer that you can throw on or off easily.
This is the easiest way to seamlessly transition your outfit from one setting and energy to another. You know we love a blazer around here – keep it basic or add a pop of color! Blazers not your thing? Throw on a patterned shirt over your base outfit for a whole new look.
My favorite part! Going to the office in a dress or slacks? Start your day with a pair of classy slingback heels, and then switch them out for some clean white sneakers or classy slides. Keep it simple during the day with diamond studs or gold hoops, and then layer in necklaces after 5:00 to keep it elevated but casual. Always carrying a big bag with you? Ditch it for something more compact and easier to carry once you leave for the day!
