From the Office to Happy Hour

Black Trousers

When I have plans after work, I tend to put a little more effort into my office attire.  I need something that’s office appropriate but also makes me feel great when going to meet friends for drinks or heading to an event after hours.

I wore this look on Monday to work and then to a dinner party with the Veluxe team at founder Susanna Quinn’s home to learn more about the Veluxe brand and chat with other businesswomen and female entrepreneurs in the DC area.  It was such a great night!  If you’re in DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, or Chicago, try out the Veluxe App where you can get beauty, fitness, and wellness services on demand.

Back to this outfit … these black trousers were such a great find!  I had been looking for new black work pants for a while and stumbled across these.  I was skeptical since I tend to stick to very slim fitting pants, but these turned out to be perfect!  They’re a great staple black trouser that can easily be worn with flats and a flowy, untucked top (I wear that combo to work a lot!).  They’re also available in olive which would be so perfect for fall and winter!

I paired the trousers with a simple white blouse and my favorite nude heels (they go with EVERYTHING!) and threw on a fun necklace to add a little interest.
