Friday Funday: from Office to Cocktails

Friday poses a tricky duality. It is at the same time a highlight of the week – the release of work finishing can be energizing – but it can often be the day when you have the least mental space and time to focus on your appearance and balancing work demands with after hours plans can be tricky.

While I don’t believe in the concept of casual Friday, I do believe in wearing an outfit that is comfortable and can take you into weekend plans with minimal alteration. Take these classic items – a turtleneck sweater and a pencil skirt (also seen here). They are transformed with two simple changes: a bright lip and a fun necklace. With these minor additions, I’ve saved energy for finishing the work – and I’m still look like I’m ready to enjoy the start to the weekend!
