Hey there, working girls! Being trendy and stylish might be a priority – but so is your career and your family.
Squeezing in a happy hour with the girls can be tough, let alone running home to slip into something cute and freshen up your ‘do. Who has time for that? Well, you DO have time for your friends and we have some tips to help take your business casual ensemble to fun and flirty for happy hour in a snap! So tell your friends “Yes!” to girls’ night out, knowing you’ll show up looking oh-so-chic.

Touch-ups: Take a quick bathroom break at the office to tease your hair into a bouffant side ponytail. Don’t forget your hairspray! Before you hit the snazzy wine bar patio – ditch the blazer! If it’s chilly out, keep it on and roll the sleeves a tad to give it a more casual look.
