Office morning to a Saturday morning: the walk of shame

Saturday morning, 8 am and yours truly is third in line at Starbucks.. In Friday morning’s casual office look! The only difference between me and the two ladies in front- I didn’t look like it! No heels over my shoulder, no smudged mascara. Ignoring the voice of shame in my head, I was kinda proud of myself. 

The naked truth is, I wasn’t going planing on a crazy night. The original plan was a double date at the end of a long week. Somehow it turned into a quick visit to my favorite bar. It wasn’t one drink and two hours later, I found myself posing in the middle of the street on the way to my favorite club.

I had so much fun, ended up dancing the night away and for a first time in a while, I closed the club down at 7 something in the morning 😂

I thought my walk of shame is leaving the club at such an hour in yesterday morning’s attire. Then I realized, I don’t blend in with the parade of pale faces in tight dresses and messy hair! I managed to leave the house looking perfectly acceptable for a casual Friday at the office, partying all night and still looking like a workaholic on Saturday morning! 

 On the way to Starbucks I took another pic, just to have a base of comparasent:

The secret to my look: a good concealer and the right tinted moisturizer, combined with a waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Don’t forget to drink 200 ml of water for every drink you have throughout the night!

In and out of the office

Happy Spring, Lovies! 

As the temperatures increase, so do our post office hours commitments. I like to chose my outfits wisely, combining a stylish-office and a-drink-after-work vibe in one look. It’s not always easy to pull off, so there’s nothing wrong with stuffing your clutch and a piece of statement jewelry in your work bag for later. Here’s the drill: before heading out switch all of your essentials from you purse to the clutch (keys, wallet, charger, lip gloss) and leave your bag at the office. Just make sure next day’s office outfit matches the bag you left the previous night ;]  Another tip from yours truly: always keep a pair of classic heels and flat shoes at the office, updating them based on the season of course! 

In last week’s shenanigans I’m wearing a cream Ralph Lauren top with skinny JBrand jeans, Guess ankle booties, Victoria’s Secret bow clutch and custom made heart shaped earrings. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the arrival of Spring as much as I am! I also want to say, I’m sorry for being absent all week but I’d rather be gone for a bit and then spend time writing a good post, than to give you, guys, random content or scheduled posts every few hours. On that note, if you miss me, feel free to follow me on Instagram (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates, lifestyle posts and to follow my 100 Happy Days journey. 

With Love, Silvia Mèlange 

 
  
  

Bright lights, late nights

  

The other day I had to attend a Chritmas party right after work. I had no time to go home and change so in the morning, I had to chose wisely! Decided on a wool H&M cardigan, worn as a dress, styled up with a thin Zara belt in deep brown to add a more defined shape. Paired up with basic warm leggings and Nine West riding boots from the Vintage America collection. Comfy, warm and stylish- my three MUST’s for winter holiday parties!
