An employee first, a valentine later.

Well Hello there, again!

This one’s for every woman who’s going to have to deal with a day job first before she slips into the valentine’s mood today. Unless, you’ve taken the day off!

As for me, I most often head out straight from work, be it Valentine’s or any other night out. I thus wanted to create a Nine to Dine outfit transition for today’s blog post. You’ll see below , how a simple shift in accessorizing and styling the same red dress makes it so easy to go from ‘The corporate scarlet’ to ‘The dreamy romantic’.

To begin with, I chose this perfectly red lace body con dress from H&M. I picked this up on my trip to Bali. I love how detailed the lace is and it fits like a dream! Not too sheer for work yet sassy enough for a date night.

The Corporate Scarlet

Black and red is a timeless combination and you can hardly go wrong with it. For this look, I layered the dress with this sleeveless 90’s pinstripes trench dress. I stole it from my Mum’s closet and wore it unbuttoned as a trench coat.

I really like how the length of the sleeveless trench covers up the length of the dress, making it work wearable.

I prefer having my hair off the face at work, so I simply twisted it away for this look.

I chose to wear my black court shoes from Zara. I like to match metals in my outfits, I thus completed the look with a simple layered gold necklace, bangles and a couple of rings from Forever 21.

The Dreamy Romantic

As sassy at it can get! For this look I chose to swap the bold black and red for a softer palette of rose gold and red. Rose gold works beautifully as a neutral colour and goes with almost anything.

I got rid of the sleeveless trench for this look and let the accessories do the talking. The layered necklace is replaced with a gorgeous rose gold and beige choker from Koovs.

To further bling up this date look, I wore my rose gold Michael Kors watch.

I clearly went all out with the rose gold tones, and why not! I further swapped my black court shoes for these gorgeous rose gold block heel sandals from Koovs and carried a rose gold sling bag from Mango.

I left my hair to it’s natural air dried state and wore my favourite Mac Ruby Woo lipstick to match the mood

Which of the above two Valentine’s looks did you like the most? I’d love to know! 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

Until next time!
