“Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans” – John Lennon.
Now that the holidays are behind us, we’re back in the swing of things – full steam ahead! You know how it is, juggling a bazillion things, from work, to kids, to time w/ friends, to a little ‘us’ time, groceries, etc, etc. But as they say, the show must go on… So, here are a few things to help you go from work, directly to an evening out. Things you can easily fit in your purse, or a small bag (which you could take to work). Low maintenance, low effort, definitely mega impact. Or as I like to call it, LEMI (Low Effort Mega Impact)
Statement earrings: a definite LEMI. Easy to throw in a little pouch in your purse.
Bracelet: super simple way to add a little sparkle to your outfit.
Dark lipstick: Nothing says glamor like a striking color on your lips. Think reds/ deep pinks/ dark browns.
Eyeliner: Easy way to up your look with a few strokes of a liner on your eyelids. Also, apply/ touch up your mascara while you’re at it (I’ve included a link to my absolute favorite mascara below). I’ve included my top picks in waterproof pencil, waterproof retractable, and liquid eyeliners below.
Scarf/ Stole: easily roll up your fave colorful scarf in your bag, to later add a little pizzaz to your all black work dress or shirt-pant ensemble, as you roll into the night. A stole will also provide reprieve from the chilly eve. See post here and here for some options.
Heels: Slightly bigger (than a lipstick for example, which you can throw in your bag), but definitely high impact. Carry them right in your purse in a shoe bag. I’ve included a few examples below.
