For those days when I’m heading from a day full of meetings to an evening event, be it a cocktail reception, happy hour or a work event, I love to balance a bit of sparkle and fun with something professional that can take me through the day without a quick 6 p.m. change. An outfit like this is a favorite for its weekday versatility, and both of these pieces can go so many ways. I’ve worn this top with black pants for work and with denim for a Saturday afternoon (and it reminds me that I can also mix gold and silver!); I just scooped up this skirt, also from LOFT, and it’s much needed: personality without a too-short hemline!
