Look 6: Work Day to Date Night
Valentine’s Day happens to fall on a Tuesday this year so some of our boss babes may be going straight from the work place to their evening plans. If you have a busy day scheduled at the office and no real time to make a big outfit transition, don’t worry! Try taking your look from day to night by layering oversized suiting over a minimal mini dress and switch out your day time accessories for something with a little mark sparkle so you can still shine.
