Happy Hour Style

I have a real treat for you today, friends.  I have two outfits in one post.  OK, I actually did that on Sunday, but yea, I’m doing it again.  I like to call this series Happy Hour Style.  Why?  Because it’s Friday, the best day to go to a happy hour after work to kick off the weekend right!

Dress: LOFT | Shoes: Zara | Necklace: Swell Caroline | Bracelets: Forever 21 and Isshou No Yakusoku

This first outfit was the one I wore to last blogger event at J.Crew!  It was the release of the Fall line (which I absolutely love) and some fellow bloggers and I met up at Gram & Dun for some drinks beforehand. I decided to stay with a classy neutral and black look.  I got this dress a few years ago at LOFT before I even knew what colorblocking was.  Who would have known that I was trendsetter back then?  πŸ˜‰  Thanks for taking these pics, Chasing Davies!

Top: Urban Outfitters | Skirt: J.Crew Outlet | Cardigan: Gap | Belt: K Fashion House | Shoes: Sole Society, borrowed from friend | Purse: Asian iCandy | Necklace: Petitor | Bracelets: Oia Jules

For this next outfit that I wore to Snow & Company (an awesome happy hour location with iced slushy shots) I went with a more colorful look.  And if you couldn’t tell, I’m kind of obsessed with gold jewelry.  I used to be a silver metal freak but now all I ever buy is gold!  I’m sure silver will come back in one of these days, right?  Thanks to Nancy for taking these pictures and letting me borrow your awesome shoes!  πŸ™‚

    This is lovely. Both outfits are really cute. Need to get my hands on that chain link bracelet. Looks like that’s a trend now

    I LOVE the Loft dress! I like both outfits don’t get me wrong but I’m a sucker for cream colors. πŸ™‚
    My happy hour outfit is usually skinny jeans and a nice top with wedges. I’m a stay at home mom so I don’t have a lot of dresses or heels for that matter. I’m working on changing that though! I just bought my first pair of heels the other day, nude peep toes to go with a dress to wear to a wedding. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing them a lot.

    I’m loving both of these cute Happy Hour looks Sandy. That Loft dress is adorable, and I love those shades of blue together in your second look. And I totally want to steal your friend’s shoes! πŸ™‚

    I love both outfits – I used to work at Loft and remember that dress…now I regret not buying it! I love choosing outfits for happy hour, my go tos are blazers and pumps. I still feel “business” but the heels add a little something extra. πŸ™‚ Have a good weekend!


  14. August 24, 2012 / 10:46 am

    Both of these outfits are great and I love that you kind of stuck to a color blocking theme with these. I haven’t done a pub crawl or cocktail hour in ages. This makes me want to.

    I love that Loft dress! and the second outfit, too. The pink purse is such a great addition to the blues. So envious of your wardrobe, Sandy! πŸ™‚

  20. August 24, 2012 / 4:18 pm

    Both of those outfits are two of the cutest ones I’ve ever seen on you Sandy!! I love how one’s neutral and classy and the other one is colorful and fun! πŸ™‚ Just like you!

    oh la la, what fun with two posts in one! Might be partial to the first outfit though I love both. PS: have been dying for those sara heels since I first saw them on you. Of course since Monday they’re sold out in my big size 9. sad.

    That Loft dress is adorable and fabulous!

    Question: who does your photo shoots. My husband can’t take decent photos to save his life. Did you teach your Hubs or is he a natural? Or is it someone else?


  30. August 25, 2012 / 11:49 pm

    The first outfit is my favorite, but both are fun. (:

  31. August 27, 2012 / 2:15 pm
