I often go out and meet friends or head to an event immediately after work, sometimes changing out my top or dress into something less “office appropriate,” but usually my shoes and handbag remain the same. I need to travel light and travel functional, because if I go home to ‘change,” good luck getting me out the door again!
It’s great to have good versatile pieces that can move from the work place to the chic French bistro down the street where I meet my girlfriends for happy hour; for this Friday afternoon I swapped out an Alternative Apparel t-shirt I was wearing for a more risque handkerchief top, flats for wedges, and added my favorite turquoise double knuckle ring. All day I rocked a great new Goody elastic, which adds a bit of hardware chic via a metal jewelry-inspired bar.
