With Valentine’s Day falling on Wednesday this year, many of us will be going straight from the office to date night without much opportunity to change.  However, with the right dress, an outfit change for your evening plans may be totally unnecessary.  Like the burgundy lace midi dress I’m wearing in today’s photos, there are lots of beautiful dresses that can transition from day to night without a hitch.

I recently snagged this beauty at Nordstrom, and I love that the dress’s long sleeves and midi length make it daytime appropriate at the office, while the burgundy lace and feminine silhouette allow it to seamlessly transition to date night.  If you want to make it even more professional while at work, this blazer would look amazing belted over the top—a piece that can easily be left hanging on your desk chair when 5 o’clock rolls around.
