Button up, (un)button down

It’s not only a saying but a fact, Manhattanites are workaholics !!! But there’s no better feeling than Happy-Hour on Friday, when the week is finally over !!! After a hard working week, talking business is out of the question ! And so is your Monday to Friday uniform ! Pimping your business look into a night out is easier than you think !!

Here are my tips on how to go from office to cocktails without the need of bringing your weekend bag !!!

Cocktails, as I mentioned here, means heels !!! If you are more the flat shoes for work type of gal, that’s fine, but make sure you bring a pair of pumps for your night out !! It adds length, gives power and makes you feel like a sexy woman !!! Definitely a must !!!

As for the look, it starts by removing your shirt out of your trousers ! If you wear a blazer, I strongly recommend to leave it at the office to not carry it around.  And now, the fun part, styling what can be two boring pieces of clothing ; a shirt and trousers !!! To give an edge, I like to unbutton the bottom part instead of the cleavage ! It is still very sexy without being too provocative ! To complement the look, tie your messenger bag at your waist by simply adjusting the straps or by making a double loop on your waist !!  I went for a very playful bag but a more simple yet chic one would be fantastic too !! I really like this fun way of wearing a bag !! Hands and shoulder free, it accentuates the fine line of your waist ! And trust me, it’s nothing like the fanny packs, that once were so cool !!!! To add the final touch, play around with jewelry !! I would stay away from necklaces as I like to keep a clean neckline when I button up shirts but as for rings, earrings and cuffs, go nuts !!! It’s party time after all !!!

I hope this helps you looking fantastic for your next happy-hour !!!

Cheers ! ♥
