The 9 to 9 outfit

Don’t you love it when an outfit can take you from the office straight to dinner? Me too.
I don’t want to sound like a broken record but early in my career, I reserved a part of my closet to work wear only. Every time I had plans after work, I would often decline if I didn’t have an opportunity to change into an outfit that was more “me” and not so “office-y”.
Fast forward a few years later and lots has changed, especially my closet. I now purchase pieces I love and make them work for the office and beyond. This also helps me justify splurging on certain pieces, like this skirt.

In my 9 to 9 look, I chose to pair this Veronica Beard skirt which is printed and ruched with a mock turtle neck tee and kitten heel sock bootie. It keeps the looks professional for the office and fun for dinner after or where-ever you might need to be.

Full disclosure: I have worn this skirt to a wedding before too! I really love when a piece can be worn over and over again for various occasions.

Ladies, the formula for creating a 9-9 look is quite simple. All you have to do is find a statement piece to work your outfit around. For example, if you pick a skirt, tone it down with one-tone top or vice-versa. Try it! I promise it will be perfect office to dinner look!

Love these skirts for the 9 to 9 outfit:
