How to Wear a Sweater Two Ways: For Dinner and Drinks

Howtowearasweatertodrinks_5

Yesterday, I kicked off my new two-part series on how to style a sweater. In my last post, I showcased how to wear a sweater to work on casual Friday’s. In today’s post I’m dressing up this classic sweater from Old Navy for a night out on the town. This sweater is so cozy I could live in it for days.

I layered the sweater over this embellished skirt I picked up from a cute mobile boutique, Southern Bohemian that I spotted one day out and about in Atlanta. Although this outfit may need to be worn on a little warmer days than what we are experiencing now in Atlanta. It’s perfect for wearing while picking up a few dinner and drinks with friends or date night’s with the Mr. when paired with heels.

How to Wear a Sweater Two Ways: To Work

Since the weather is cooler now, sweaters and sweater dresses have become a staple in my wardrobe. Today, I’m kicking off a two-part series on how to wear a sweater to work and how to wear it out on the town for dinner and drinks. I’m a huge fan of how Old Navy has changed their style over the past year to appeal to the millennial shopper like me. Almost all of my winter wardrobe is from Old Navy. I love that their collections are fashionable but won’t break the bank. 

My work wardrobe isn’t your typical PR professional wardrobe it’s very corporate but on Friday’s we are allowed to dress casual. So this outfit would be perfect for our casual Friday’s at the office. Sweater’s are versatile and can be dressed up or down during the winter. I paired the sweater with this chambray top and suede skirt from Old Navy. I’m always chilly in the office so I must carry a scarf as an accessory to keep me warm but it also adds a pop of color to the outfit.

What do you usually wear on casual Friday’s at the office?

Stay tuned tomorrow to see how to dress up your sweater for after work hours.

The weather in Atlanta has been really bizarre lately. Last week highs were in the 70s. Yesterday the high temperature was 32 degrees. Today the high is in the 60s. So I lately I haven’t been ready to head outdoors. So I’ve started carrying my new Aerie blanket scarf with me in my tote bag so I can bundle up. I have several scarves but I love this scarf because it’s lightweight and not to heavy.

It’s that time of year where everyone is in search of the perfect holiday party outfit. This year my search was made easy and stress free. I teamed up with the Blog Societies and American Apparel to pick out the perfect holiday look at the 2nd annual Shops Around Lenox Jingle Bell Frock shopping event. I knew I wanted something in the color oxblood because its such a hot color right now. So when I stumbled upon this Oxblood skater dress from American Apparel, I knew I had found the dress I wanted to wear this holiday season. I love the dress! It’s sophisticated but also sexy. 

You still have time to find your perfect holiday look. Skip the mall crowds and head to the Shops Around Lenox to pick out what you want to wear to this year.

Fall is slipping away quickly, and the temperatures in Atlanta are getting colder as the days go by. This fall I’m loving the color grape. Purple grape is such a regal color that can be dressed up or down. I’ve added several new pieces to my wardrobe with this fall. Shopping at the outlets earlier this fall I snagged a great deal on this purple skater skirt from J.Crew. I love it because it’s a great way to add a bright bold color to your work wear. I think this grape skirt goes great with a classic long sleeve t-shirt and a statement necklace like this one I found at J.Crew.

Have you added the color grape to your closet this fall?
