The Darling Nomadess: From Desk to Drinks

From Desk to Drinks

While I'm stuck in a uniform at my hospitality job, I've always been jealous of Alicia Tenise's fun work style. Whether she is at her office desk, happy hour, a party, or hanging out, she always manages to look incredibly stylish and classy. I kind of really wish we lived closer so I could raid her closet! 


Hello, Darlings! My name is Alicia and I am a life and style blogger over at Alicia Tenise. I am super excited to be guest posting today on Ashliegh's fabulous blog! I knew that I had to share my sense of style with Ashliegh's readers. My outfit posts are the most fun for me to create!

I graduated from college last May, and transitioning from college to the real world was quite the change! I got a desk job and found myself going straight from the office to happy hour. I didn't have enough time to completely change my outfit, so I packed a few key accessories to take my work ensemble from desk to drinks!



Here are a few tips and tricks on how to transition from work to play with ease!

  • Layer a jacket or a blazer over your ensemble during the day to make your ensemble more office appropriate.
  • Swap out your large work tote for a sleek clutch at happy hour.
  • Ditch the commuter flats at happy hour and opt for a statement heel.
  • Lipstick will instantly amp up your look -- swipe on a bright color after work for the perfect finishing touch!
That's it! A super simple, 4-step method to take you from day to night.

Thanks everyone! Make sure to check out my blog, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all of my post-grad fashion adventures!

  1. That clutch is divine! Love both outfits, though I'm not sure I'd be able to pull them off.

  2. That preppy, peach clutch is flawless. I need one now.

  3. Lovely looks. I like how you took this outfit from day to night. I have to remember to carry bright lipstick with me so I can fit in to impromptu after-work get-togethers!

  4. Those pants and loafers are beautiful - love!
