As a working mom I often find myself racing against the clock. Whether I am running from the gym to the office or the office to post-work happy hour, it seems that time is never on my side.

If you are like me, looking to take your outfit from office appropriate to casual chic? Here’s my simplest example.

1) Start with a foundation piece with a classic silhouette: I chose this navy stripe shirt and the classic pants

2) Add for the office: Layer on a sleek blazer is always the best idea

3) Pack for later: Bring along some chic sweaters, comfy booties, fun clutch, and a coat (for cold weather like now) 

When you’re en route to your post-work destination, simply swap the office layers to those after-hour pieces. The bottom line is picking out one of your favorite staples and styling a “business” look with it and an “casual” look with that same piece.

Hope everyone has a great start of the working week so far!
