From Desk to Date { LBD }

Happy Valentine's Day, lovers! I decided that today would be perfect to start a new feature on the blog. "From Desk to Date" is exactly what it sounds like -- style tips on how to update your work wardrobe so that you can breeze your way to the bar, right after a grueling 9-to-5. It is also a great way to see how versatile your closet is and how different pieces can be remixed to create fresh new looks.

From Desk to Date
{ Created by Silk and Spice on Polyvore }

What: For this first installment I chose to go with a classic LBD shift. 

Desk: I paired this modest dress with a colorful statement necklace and a color-blocked jacket for some pizzazz. Neutral accessories like the handbag and shoes keep it work appropriate. The simple gold rings and classic men's watch add to the elegance of the look. Deep plum nails is my favorite here because it brings out the color in the necklace and it is very chic and fashion forward but can be understated enough for the office. Neutral makeup and light pink lipstick keep your beauty look simple and fuss-free for work.

Date: When it's time for play, leave the jacket and watch behind but keep the necklace. Add a bold bracelet and switch out the classic work bag for a bright, cheery clutch. And voila, you're good to go!

Lots of love,
xoxo - Chrissy
