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.

My Style // The Leather Dress

 

I’m back with another installment of my style series! It’s been a long week but I’m looking forward to winding down this weekend and hitting the town for some fun. This leather dress from BB Dakota is perfect for a girls night out on the town! The great thing about this dress is that it’s figure flattering and can be worn throughout the spring. It also has a little sex appeal but it’s classy as well.

My Style // A Touch of Gold

After being snowed in for three days last week, I’ve been itching to get outdoors and play. So this weekend I got out an played in the warm weather. I did a little shopping, volunteered and had brunch with friends. But more importantly I’ve been looking forward to sharing my next installment of My Style series. I’m always looking for the perfect casual look to wear to work that can be translated into a happy hour look as well. This blazer/ jean combo is the ideal outfit for both.
