Work to Post-Work: Wild Orchid

Who here likes to get changed out of your work clothes as soon as you get home? It’s basically the first thing I do when I get home. I change into the comfiest clothes possible. But occasionally, I have plans after work that require me to wear something other than pajama pants. And sometimes these plans leave me time to go home first so I’m not going straight from work. In these cases, every once in a while I don’t want to wear a completely new outfit so I’ll make whatever I wore to work more casual or more comfortable for whatever kind of outing I’m going on.

A few weeks ago, before the fall weather really hit (this seriously just happened in the last 2 days) I wore a grey skirt and a boxy shirt with a wild orchid print to work.

Top: LOFT
Skirt: Macy’s
Shoes: Chinese Laundry via DSW
Watch: Fossil

I actually originally thought of wearing a more flowy, jersey skirt but since the top is so boxy, I decided a sleeker skirt would be more fitting. I didn’t want to wear a loose top and loose skirt for fear of looking frumpy.

After work that day it was quite hot out. I had about a half hour to kill before meeting up with a friend for dinner so I stopped home and changed into sandals and a wrap skort.

Wrap Skort: Abercrombie & Fitch

This skort is so comfortable! It worked really well with this boxy top. I think that this top is a great example of versatile workwear. It was great for work with a skirt and I’m positive it would be just as great with dress pants and a cardigan in the winter. For post-work, I was able to make it much more casual with a skort. I could’ve made it even more casual if I paired it with dark denim shorts, which totally would’ve worked as well. I love versatile pieces!

So there you have my latest work to post-work outfit! I’ll be sure to share the next work to post-work ootd when sweats are frowned upon.
