OUTFIT HACKS 2: LOOSEN UP!

Good morning everyone!

For the modern woman, a lot of social activity spills into the workweek and unfortunately our 8 to 5 jobs aren’t shrinking accordingly. In this light, we find ourselves having to work around outfits that fabulously take us through a day packed with meetings, to an after-hours rooftop meetup. This brings me to the second outfit hack.. (In case you missed the first, catch it here)

FROM OFFICE MEETINGS…

All hail the Jumpsuit!

I LOVE jumpsuits, mainly for two reasons:

  1. The ease! I literally throw one on and get to stepping, knowing that I look smart and well put together.
  2. Versatility is really where the jumpsuit swoops in for the win and by the end of this post, you might just agree with me 🙂

For the office look, I went a little matchy-matchy, with a gold-brown lippie to match my coat and a red tote bag to match the red stripes on my shoes 🙂

…TO A ROOFTOP MEET UP

For the evening look, I loosened up. Literally. When I initially got this jumpsuit, the neckline was as low as seen in the picture above, but because I wanted to be able to wear it for more than just evening occasions, I got a press-button fixed as seen in the Office Meeting pictures.

I also opted for a neck piece that’s a little less conservative, cuffed the pants for a more casual look, kicked back with some fun print heels and went a notch higher with a bold lip.
