How to Transition Your Work Wear from Day to Night

What a week!!  If you live in the northeast, you know exactly what I mean.  This week the northeast experienced the #blizzardof2015 also known as #snowmageddon. But for those of us in NYC, it was the storm that never was – much to do about nothing.  I’m not complaining, who wants 3 feet of snow dumped on them, but it definitely threw off my plans.  I was forced to stay home for a 2 days video conference meeting- again, not a complaint since the meeting was originally supposed to take place in the Boston area.  But, by Thursday, I was beyond delighted to head into the office and needed a little time with my friends to celebrate my reemergence.  Which brings me to the topic at hand – how to transition from day to night.  If you do any entertaining for work or just enjoy happy hour with your colleagues, you sometimes want to change up your look from business to fun.  And you can easily do this by switching out a couple of accessories.  On Thursday I had a bunch of meetings in the office and on video (gotta love working for a tech company :) ) so I wore a LBD (little black dress) with a blazer.  When it was time to head out for a beverage (or two) I took of the blazer, changed up my necklace and shoes, threw on a belt (which I ended up knotting for both function and fashion – it was too long) and added a clutch for easy handling at the bar.  A little hair flip to bring back the volume to my limp hair and viola – day to night was that simple.
