It's Friday and for most of us, that means countdown to the weekend and an evening of post-work relaxation through the medium of a few alcohol infused beverages. If you're heading straight out after work, nailing a look that looks as appropriate in the local bars as it does parading through the office can prove quite a challenge.
Most importantly, get your base right: changing in the toilets before dashing out is just a recipe for getting hot and bothered, something you don't need when the summer heat is already straining your abilities to keep cool and carry on. Pair a pretty pussybow blouse like this soft mint number from Topshop with Zara's garden frenzy, flower printed pencil skirt and New Look's chunky beige platforms for a feminine look that is easily transformed with the addition of a few carefully curated accessories.
For after hours frivolity, ditch the "everything but the kitchen sink" bag for this beautiful embellished clutch from River Island for an injection of evening opulence. Take the look to the next level with gold gemmed garnishes: these lion heart earrings from ASOS and Miss Selfridge's milky white ring draw on the tones found within your beaded hand candy, making for a thoroughly tied together selection of accessories. Add a glass of wine (or five - I'm not one to judge) and you'll be well on your way to working girl nirvana.
