FROM WORK TO WINE

Hey Lovely readers,

Welcome back to my blog.

If I am to count ten things that makes me happy, going for Dates will probably rank top five – lolz. Despite my like for Dates, my busy schedule means that I can only afford Dates on weekends which can be frustrating sometimes. So whenever the opportunity allows for a weekday Date, you better believe that I am always prepared. Here are a few pointers on how to be ready to walk straight from the office to that happy hour Date while looking well put together.

Have a bold lipstick in your purse.

A bold red or purple lipstick is a sure way to brighten your work attire – most especially if you work in an environment that requires you wear dark work attire.

A classic dress paired with Β  a blazer for work and ditch the blazer the minute you leave the office.

With the traffic jams our beautiful city is blessed with, its nearly impossible for one to dash home and have a quick change of outfits. So my best option is always come prepared with a blazer layered on that little black dress (or blue in my case) and you are good to go.

Carry a spare pair of shoes for the date.

I have come to learn that of you want to enjoy that date after a long day at work, the best way is to be comfortable during the day by wearing comfy shoes throughout the day and change to high heels at the end of the day. Despite the beautiful fit of high heeled shoes, trust and believe you will be tired of groggy after a full day of walking around in them. So save yourself the trouble and wear the flats during the day.

Drink lots of water during the day.

I hate drinking water, I prefer coffee or tea, but if I get that text confirming to a Date post-work, my first weapon is drinking lots of water just so that I am hydrated and energized after the long day is over. So if you drink 1.5ltrs of water during the day, chances are you will look fresher than when you drink just a glass of water.

I hope these tips will come handy especially for those week day Dates and if you have any pointers that I need to Β know please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love;

Aika.
