Hey guys. As I sit here with my feet in some water with essential oils and cleansers about to give myself a luxurious at-home pedicure I think about what plans I have for my Friday evening. Two of my friends have decided to go to an event at a local night club held right after work that’s supposed to be a networking kind of vibe for young professionals et al. I’m no longer in the corporate world myself, so the question comes up….what shall I wear?

It would be easy for me to throw on a pair of jeans and a button up or a frilly top as your preference goes but the irie fam knows I am not a jean fan. I think about the million dresses I have in my work wardrobe that I had built for wearing to office and meetings prior to leaving the corporate world that would all be appropriate, since everyone will be in their work attire more or less….but I don’t really wanna blend in that bad. Who wants to put on a “work” dress? No matter how fabulous they all are.

This is the look I’m going for. My hemline will be shorter like the dress on the left since I’m not coming from an office and can add the sexy as I like, but if I were coming from an office I probably would have worn a cute patterned wrap dress to work that can take me from daytime to cocktails with ease. I love the print and colours of this Nine West one above. Nude pumps and accessories highlight each look.

What would you wear to such an event? Where are you off to this weekend?

Edit: Thought I’d add what I ended up wearing to this event to the post. It’s the main pic above…do you like?

The dress is Forever 21, accessories Shhh Boutique and the shoes Jessica Simpson. Mingling with my dear friend Ryan:
