Scrolling through my calendar and I’m equal parts excited and horrified: horrified because the year is almost over (time – where did you go?!) but excited because the holiday season is always filled with so many social events and parties. Years of working in a typical office and I’m pretty confident that I’ve nailed my day to night strategy: add a blazer over a dress and put on some festive lipstick. When I commuted by foot in San Francisco it also meant throwing a pair of heels in my bag so that I could swap them out with my work flats once the cocktails were calling.
Today I’m wearing a go-to day to night look that I found at Harvey Nichols – it’s warm enough for the cooler temps, polished enough for the office and 100% me. The luxe sweater dress gently drapes my body and doesn’t hug too tight, just the way I like it. The blazer is a classic in soft brushed jersey – it’s warm without the bulkiness. I first stepped into Harvey Nichols on our trip to London several years ago, and I liken it to a child’s first experience in FAO Schwartz. Love their selection, it’s a brilliant mix of high end designers and more approachable brands and price points too. I’m always clicking through to their new arrivals (like this belted midi skirt!). Also wishlisting these boots and this sweater (would be great with all the high-waisted tie pants I’ve been wearing lately!). PS: They’re offering 15% off Fashion only with code 9TO5CHICHN15 through 11/1!
Hope you’re having a great week so far and thanks for stopping by!
