Office to Cocktails



When buying work clothes, one of the questions I ask myself is “can I incorporate this into an evening outfit too?”

This isn’t the most important factor of buying work wear, but if I can get two outfits out of one item then in my eyes, I’m winning! My job is very social, and I’m regularly rushing out to an event or for drinks as soon as I’ve finished work, so the transition needs to be quick and effortless.

I’ve discovered two items this week that I can wear during the day for work, and with a couple of adjustments can be dressed up for the evening too, so I wanted to share them with you.

Both items are from the Millie Mackintosh collection. I was very kindly asked to pick a couple of items from her collection, and straight away I fell in love with two pieces that I immediately saw myself wearing both in and out of work. The first is a gorgeous wool-blended skirt with a cute fluted hem at the bottom, which I have teamed with tights and a long sleeved silk blouse for the day, and quickly swapped the blouse and ditched the tights for the evening.

The second is a long tailored waistcoat with gorgeous embellishment on the collar, making it perfect for an evening look over an LBD and thrown over trousers or a skirt during the day.
