From Career to Cocktails

I aalways enjoy reading fashion magazine articles that show you how to take an outfit from work to play so I decided to do my own.  I was cleaning out my wardrobe the other day and came across this bright yellow polka dotted blouse and checkered wool skirt that I was saving for the warm months.  However, yesterday was such a gloomy rainy day that I decided to wear this spring outfit to brighten my day.

Adding thick black tights and a tank top underneath the blouse made it work appropriate and I added the bright bag and a bracelet I bought in San Diego for funkiness. 

Skirt- Ann Taylor; Blouse- Express; Wedges- Payless Shoes; Bag-Aldo; Bracelet-Mingei International Museum (Balboa Park, San Diego)

To take this outfit from career to cocktails, I removed the black tights, opened a blouse button, added a grey clutch and fun feather earrings.

Clutch- Thrifted; Earrings-Hush

  9. Hmmmm...let me think...from career to cocktails? Honey, for me it's career (trying to bribe/cajole 13 year olds into learning something) to cat feeding (once I get home). Then the next highlight is reading this blog, seeing what's happening on facebook, dinner, some marking and then time for bed! So I will admire your "career to cocktails" outfits from afar! xo


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
