Desk to Drinks

September 11, 2018

Ok ok ok. I know you are going to say “the grass is always greener”, but sometimes I wish I had to dress professional for work. Putting on this outfit was like a total rush – give me a boardroom and a briefcase and glass office with a corner view and I’m pretty sure there isn’t much I couldn’t accomplish. Ok so the red lipstick helped, but Motherchic team watch out! New dress code for work coming soon….

And while I admittedly felt like super woman while photographing this look. I couldn’t help but think about the versatility of so many of these pieces. Would I wear the blazer with a cami and jeans for date night? Oh yes. Would I pair the houndstooth shell with jeans and flats for a more casual look? Most definitely. Could I stay in my fairytale dream and pretend I was taking clients for fancy cocktails after work and make a few tweaks to my look on the spot? You betcha!

The entire collection at Ann Taylor lends itself to these effortless transformations. Many of their pieces together create the perfect professional look. On their own they can be mixed and matched with more casual pieces which in turn, really stretches your wardrobe. Here’s how I took one look from desk to drinks….

Desk….

Mixing classic solid separates with an on trend houndstooth shell, creates the perfect, professional workwear look. Gold accents are an easy way to accessorize and a block heel is always my go-to for fashion and function.

To Drinks….

With a simple removal of the jacket and addition of a colorful bag, this houndstooth shell is top shelf ready.

    This is a great outfit, but most offices nowadays are business casual (including mine) and my struggle is finding nice tops and dresses that aren’t sleeveless. It’s annoying to always have to find a cardigan or blazer to wear in the office to cover my shoulders and arms. Over time I feel like I’m just rotating through cardigans every day. The other struggle is once it gets cold outside, how do I pair boots with pants? Skinny cropped pants look ridiculous with any kind of boot but longer wide leg pants aren’t really in style or flattering. Would love if you could do a post on these issues!!
