Dressing Down Vs Dressing Up // Better Living

It is finally Thursday (counting backwards for Friday) and many of you have plans after work, such as going out for Margaritas with the girls or maybe a date with a new love interest =)
If you don't have plans for today no need to worry; these tips work for every day of the week!

I have some tips for you on how to dress down your outfit for the office and then dress it up to go out.

1. Keep 2-3 core items in both looks, so that you don't need to carry too many things and your boss thinks you are leaving for the weekend without telling them! I suggest that these key pieces should be your clothes so that you don't need to go change.
2. Take a big bag with you when leaving your house in the morning, one that can fit everything inside (your usual stuff plus your extras for later) without looking like a stuffed turkey. If you don't have a car, you can leave it at one of your friends cars. If they don't have a car either, then you can ask at the entrance of the bar, restaurant etc. to keep it for you safely
3. Stay comfortable at work, i.e. don't wear shoes that you will regret later (too high or too tight)
4. Have fun accessorizing, either at work or out

And these are my suggestions, full of color, to celebrate Spring!

- 3 key pieces: skirt + top + blazer
