Workweek Chic

6.02.2012


Vince Camuto blouse (last seen here), 
H&M peplum skirt (similar style here), 
Nanette Lepore bag, 
C&A stackable rings, 
Pour La Victoire heels.

If Micol and I make plans to grab drinks or dinner after a busy day at the office, it's rare that we get a chance to stop at home to change or refresh makeup, so coming up with a solid outfit to hit the town after work is crucial.

This look is a bit more fancy than I usually dress for the office, but since we were going out afterwards I tried to step up my game a notch. Peplum skirts are great day to night wardrobe pieces, while this bag has just enough sleek hardware to make it suitable for evening, but is big enough to fill with all my work essentials and a makeup bag for a mid-day retouch.

On this particular occasion we headed over to the Boom Boom Room for an early evening drink, where we watched the sun fall over a gorgeous view of Manhattan while listening to a live band. Perfect end to a hectic day at the office.
