From the Desk to the Bar - After Work Drinks with T.M. Lewin

I know I'm not the only one who loves an after work drink. Sadly, for me, this happens a lot less frequently now I live in the countryside. But when I was living in Bristol, after work drinks was my favourite thing to do.

What always used to be a nightmare was transitioning my work outfit into an outfit fit for the bar (I was never that person who was super organised and kept heels in her desk draw!!) But, with small changes to an outfit, it can really change the whole look.

I think the transition from work to the bar is so different for men and women. Men seem to need to dress down their suit, where has women would prefer to vamp up what they already have on. 

I am in love with this T.M. Lewin Navy Blue Strand Suit. I really like a slim fit suit, especially for a younger man. For work, I thought this would look great paired with a white shirt, polka dot tie and brown brogues - all from T.M. Lewin. I also saw these cufflinks on the website, and they are a piece of me. I am obsessed with anything monogrammed/personalised at the minute, these can go with suits for both formal and casual occasions. 

To then transition this look to the bar, you could lose the tie, keep the shirt and the suit jacket and pair them with a more casual pair of chinos

I think it's a really common thought that T.M. Lewin only cater for men....they don't! They have some really lovely pieces for women too. I saw this dress and had to include it! I love the monochrome style, and its a really good length for the office. I would pair this dress with a classic pair of black heeled court shoes and my dream Michael Kors bag (swoon!) Also, I don't know about you, but to me offices are colder than the Antarctic, so this Carrara back cardigan would be perfect with this outfit to keep you warm.

So, here's the fun part, to transition this outfit for after work drinks I would lose the cardigan ('cause, who needs to be warm!) and the court shoes. Instead, I would add these gorgeous Steve Madden ankle boots to give the outfit a bit of a edge. 

How do you transition from work to the bar?

Love, Kate
