Pencil Skirt Style From Day To Night

I’ve gotten a few emails from some of you asking for outfit tips/inspiration to take you from the office to happy hour or requesting similar day-to-night slash easy-to-transition outfit examples/ideas. And for the record, I LOVE getting these types of emails – it makes my job SO much more fun when I know that I’m (hopefully) answering a specific question or giving y’all what you want!

So that’s just what I’m doing in today’s post :) – answering this question by styling a key work-ish item two ways to seamlessly take you from work to play, keeping you stylish around the clock (insert sassy girl emoji here).

Keep It Simple, Classic and Sophisticated For Your Work Day

I figured a black pencil skirt was a great place to start – as I’m sure most of you working ladies already own one or could imagine yourself wearing one. Plus, a black pencil skirt is such a classic wardrobe staple and it’s fun to style regardless.

This skirt is such a fun take on your typical black pencil skirt – I love how it’s got the wrap detail in the hem and then how it ties up top. Something about it is JUST the right amount of professional class with a hint of sass too! Oh, and not to mention the fact that it’s high-waisted, which makes it even cuter in my opinion!

I’ve been wearing these earrings NONSTOP lately. They’re so great because they make a mini statement (with their sunburst awesomeness) but they’re not too wild to where they totally steal the spotlight of the entire outfit. They strike just the right balance between too much and too light and are just right for everyday OR night time outfits.

So that’s it for the WORK outfit but now let’s pretend that it’s now 5 o’clock and time to rush to the newest, coolest rooftop bar to meet your girlfriends (or the BF) for an evening drink.

And now for the fun night-out-with-friends little number! I would just tie your work tee around your waist for a laid back look and throw on a fun little crop top or tuck in your go-to white tank (I suggest this one!). And voila! You’ve got yourself quite the sassy little happy hour number!
