Work Chic: Day To Night

This post has been in my drafts since last year, forgot I had it even. 

At least 90% of my work week I don't go home right away, the traffic is nuts and I prefer to drive home much later when traffic has died down so I can be home in 20 minutes as opposed to the 3 hours it would take me if I left at 5pm.

As a result of this a lot of my work wear has to be able to translate easily from day to night in the event there's somewhere I'd like to go after work. What I discovered is that blazers are a godsend, they can turn a ho into a housewife faster than you can say church. Put a blazer over anything and you're good.


Look 1
Wore this to work, all demure like

Zara blazer with gathered shoulders; River Island animal print chiffon dress; Dorothy Perkins pumps

I am so enamored with this particular blazer above that I have it in navy and red besides the black one pictured here.


Look 2
Whip off my blazer and I have a nice dress I can go out to dinner or wherever else that suits my fancy in.




I did just that below when I went out to Likwid with friends for a charity event after work.


So yeah, invest in blazers, they'll save your sartorial life.

Love and light xx
