Looking professional for work, but stylish for the drinks you will be grabbing afterward is not always a simple task. Striking the right balance between office-appropriate and happy-hour-hot is always a bit of a challenge, but also an important thing to master when you live in a city that doesn’t allow for time to come home and change. Piperlime is one of my favorite places to shop for things that are professional and classic, but that also have a little bit of sex appeal. Dressing up a simple (but skin-tight!) dress with a killer pair of heels and some fun accessories is a sure-fire way to take your outfit from the desk to dinner in style. I paired this French Connection dress and Shulz heels with a pop of color and my favorite work bag for an easy transition from day to night. (I also stowed my Yosi Samra foldable flats in my purse, because y’all know I am not walking from the desk to the dinner in those heels). While we are on the topic of the shoes, can I just tell you ladies that these have got to be the pair I am most excited to wear this fall. Piperlime also has them in navy, and I may just have to go ahead and grab those too. The subtle, but sexy chain link detail on the bottom makes these babies extra special, but they are still so easy to pair with literally everything in your closet (boyfriend jeans, that little black dress, your favorite skirt, etc. etc.). I would advise you to size up however, as I have them in my usual size (7.5) and they are a little bit small (especially with tights). For more of my Piperlime wishlist check out this post from a few weeks ago, it has everything I am craving for fall!
