What To Wear To After-Work Happy Hour (+ The Best Happy Hours in Atlanta)

Wait. What do you mean you don't do Atlanta happy hours?

I work as hard as I play, usually. For every few weeks that I hibernate working on something for my blog or business, I make up for it when I'm out. You know what I hate though? Feeling like the life of the party, but looking like the obituary. Corporate America can easily suck the life out of any outfit. Good news, all you need is a pencil skirt and a dress shirt to go from Boardroom Betty to the Trap Queen in a matter of seconds. After you leave work, spritz some rosewater on your face, pop some lashes on, then unbutton and untuck that shirt. To accentuate your waist, unbutton the last 2-3 buttons and tie shirt in the front. You can easily take your work outfit from day to night with a few adjustments. This is perfect if you are going to meet friends for drinks, or if you don't know what to wear to an after-work happy hour date. Look put together, but like you didn't try too hard. ( Warning: This is not something to wear to happy hour with coworkers. Also, horizontal stripes will make you look wider than you really are. Don't say I didn't look out for you.)

Speaking of happy hours. Atlanta happy hours happen on the low, because of some weird law that I didn't bother researching. Thus, finding an after-work drink spot can be quite the hassle. If you're looking for the most affordable Atlanta happy hour specials during the week, I compiled a list of my favorite places.
