Taking Friday Casual to Dinner

Hello Hello!!  What’s up?  (Sorry for the delay I’ve been fighting a cold all week).  Fridays at work are casual days but still any outfit has to meet work’s standards for casual.  Don’t get me wrong my work is super lax on enforcing what can and cannot be worn, but I like to not push the envelope.

This Friday it was beautiful here, like 65 in February, I could not resist walking to work but I also had to go almost directly to dinner and drinks with my friend upon getting home.  I wanted to do a quick change of my outfit before heading out, so here are my tips on how to make a quick change by only altering a few things.

I actually went pretty casual for work on Friday, and since it was so warm I went for an outfit that felt a little springy.

I bought this white shirt awhile ago and I love wearing it, its super comfy and it is this crisp white color.  I love wearing it on Fridays because it is lose chill and looks good with my skinny jeans.  When I walked to work it was a little chilly out so I wore my trench coat, always makes any outfit more professional.

Now how to take this professional casual look to dinner and drinks.

I only changed 2 things, with an optional third change if you wanted to be fancier   First and most obvious I changed my jacket traded my trench coat for a leather jacket.  The leather jacket adds some edge which makes it perfect for going out.  The second change is my accessories, I switched necklaces from a more conservative statement necklace to a loud statement necklace.  The neckline of this shirt begs to be worn with a statement necklace and this flashy glam one is perfect for going out.  These changes combined to take the casual work look to a casual going out look.  (The change took a total of maybe 5 minutes).

Now for those of you that want to have a fancier going out look the third item you will want to change is the shoes.  I stuck with my toms but I was doing a pretty casual dinner, you will want to change to heels.  This outfit would look great with a pair of heels, I am personally inclined to pair with my red pumps.  But also will great with a pair of black heeled strapy sandals.

Let me know your thoughts

Later!
