One of the great things about Sacramento is we have so many wonderful restaurants, bars, and lounges to check out. For a lot of people that work near downtown it can be a struggle to decide if you want to go home for dinner or just try a new place out. Since traffic can be crazy it makes sense to grab drinks or a meal on the grid before heading home. Here are a few work to play outfits that will make it easy to bounce from your desk to drinks in hand!

One of my favorite things about the downtown area of Sacramento is that there are so many amazing restaurants, great places for happy hour, and a night life that is truly one of a kind. It's the perfect opportunity to unwind from a long day at work!
Our theme this week is "work to play," so I chose to go with a flirty, bohemian inspired dress. I paired it with black fleece lined leggings to keep the cold away, but if you're feeling brave you can forgo the leggings all together when your work day is done! Since the dress shows a little more leg, I'd definitely opt for the leggings during the day.
I love the detailing on this dress so much. The sleeves have a beautiful bell and ruffle to them. The back has a larger cage detail that shows a little skin without being too much. The floral pattern is there, but not too busy. It's just a little more elevated than your typical LBD!
I kept my accessories minimal because I didn't want to overpower the dress. I love moons and stars and feel like they are very on trend right now, so I thought this gold necklace was perfect! I added a delicate gold ring for some sparkle. You can't ever go wrong with that!
"Work hard, play harder" is my motto! After a long day of working hard in the office or studying all day at school and getting stuff done I love to unwind and have fun come night time!
I carefully chose my outfit with the idea that once I leave work I'm gonna head downtown for some drinks and dinner! I wore the cutest teal suede bodysuit with silver studded accents all over. This bodysuit really suits the shape of my body and feels so soft to wear!
I kept the suede theme going and threw on a charcoal gray suede jacket with faux fur. This jacket not only keeps me warm but is the perfect transition piece making my outfit work appropriate and still stylish! I went with dark denim jeans because they're my favorite and looked great with the jacket!
I really love the color scheme of this outfit and chose to accessorize with a light blue belt to make the blue color of the teal bodysuit pop out even more! I finished out with some head-turning silver dangly earrings and the cutest sterling silver rings! This outfit will have me looking my best at work and is perfect for keeping on and heading straight to dinner after and enjoying myself around the city!

Work to play outfits are one of my favorite outfits to style! There has been so many situations where I had to somewhere right after work and had to switch up a casual office look for a movie or girls night look.
I styled our cozy apricot sweater with a black jean for a work look. I made sure to pick a pair that was not distressed at all to keep it professional. I also love how these jeans are high waisted and hug your curves just right. Plus, I always love a good jean that can help flatten my little kangaroo pouch, hashtag, mom bod.
This sweater is super versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. The neck is just loose enough to have the look of a nice turtle neck without feeling like you’re suffocating. I’m loving the bell-like loose sleeves as well.
To take this look from work to play, I paired my favorite fisherman’s cap that we carry and some pretty gold earrings. For work I would wear flats or mules, and then switch them out for some heeled boots or booties. Bonus points: add a belt bag!
This weeks theme is so fun and I think something that every girl goes through either weekly or monthly. Dressing for work and then something that's easy to transition to going out and having fun. It can be tricky sometimes but most the time it's usually just a quick add or subtraction of an item of clothing you're wearing, or adding some fun jewelry.
For my outfit this week I chose this cute black and white button down dress. It is perfect for work because it can pass as pretty professional due to its color palette but so easily to transition into a night out.
For the night out part I chose to add this adorable white fuzzy jacket. It'll keep you warm and adds a fun and flirty accent to your dress.
To accessorize it I added a pretty little long silver necklace that had a bar accent on the bottom of it. As well as a white lace bralette underneath the dress so it helps with the low cut of the dress and adds a fun pop. Hope this helped inspire you today!
For those that don't know, I live in Natomas which has a lot of big chains. I feel I'm pretty lucky that I work in Midtown and Oak Park, so I can enjoy a lot of the local restaurants in the area. My boyfriend often meets me after work and it just feels more special because there are so many options we can always try something new.
For this week's look I went with relaxed camel color trousers and a navy blue linen button up. I like the mixed fabrics paired together and the color contrast is pretty pleasing to the eye as well. Since the trousers are high waisted and the top is longer I opted to tie a knot in the front.
Since it's pretty chilly after work I layered with my favorite faux leather moto jacket. A lot of people might not wear this type of jacket to work, especially in an office setting, but I think it adds a nice touch when transitioning to going out! Again, I am all about mixing, so I like the edgy jacket paired with the preppy outfit. You can almost never go wrong with a leather jacket! I think it's the easiest way to add a bit of sass to your look.
I kept my accessories really simple because I'm often running around moving clothes, folding, etc. I don't want anything to snag or get caught. With the V neckline on the top I opted for a shorter circle cutout necklace. I really enjoy folding/rolling up my sleeves and added a simple silver bangle for a bit of minimalist glam. To make sure my feet aren't completely wasted away by the evening I often times go for comfort while at work, but with my Rothy's I can get both. I have been LIVING in my Rothy flats! If you're unsure, I highly recommend them. I also LOVE their sneakers. Hopefully, my style mix up inspires your next work to play look!
Thank you for dropping by! We hope this gives you some desk to drinks outfit ideas. See ya next week.
