This week Chelsea and I are taking on "Cocktail Hour." Gone are the days of weekends at the bar, but getting invited to a cocktail hour or Girls' Night and home can be great. I'm going to cover how to dress and Chelsea has the best idea for a "Mix Your Own Beer" Bar. Say what? Look for the link down below to go check Chelsea's post out!
As I've gotten older I feel like I've done a pretty good job of perfecting work wear, weekend wear, my casual style, and church clothes. However, I feel getting dressed for a girls' night or cocktail hour is tricky. My 20-something's self was a pro at this...my 30-something self is not. Today's look is one that I think is perfect for a cocktail hour after work or night with the girls. I really like the polished look a blazer gives, but the sequined top takes this out of the normal realm of work wear. I also love the contrast of the black top with the fitted white jeans. Add a heel and some jewelry with bling and you've got a great cocktail hour look.

I've decided to start showing you some options for similar pieces and take some of the work out of shopping for you. Here are some great cobalt blazer options; I'm loving the second one.
