Day to Night

As so many of us lead such busy lives these days, I think it's important to have a few key essentials that can turn a simple day time outfit into one that's night time appropriate. 

Here is a standard weekday outfit for me. Oversized chambray button up, black JCrew pixie pants or JBrand jeans, and flats, which in this case are my Charlotte Olympia cat flats. And of course a Starbucks! 

My jewley always includes a watch and some bracelets, as well as some simple studs and my signet ring. 

I'll put my hair in a simple pony tail, or pin it back with a headband, and then I'm ready for the day. 

When it comes to taking that outfit from work or school to a nighttime date night or girls night, I have a few basics that I add to make any outfit easily translatable. 

I will usually add three things: statement necklace, cute jacket, and a red lip. Refreshing your makeup and adding a bright lipstick in red or pink can instantly up the ante with most outfits. The same goes for statement jewelry, and jackets are important for staying warm as the temperature dips as the sun goes down.  

I'll also usually throw my hair into a top knot or bun, as 7 o'clock dinner reservations don't always leave a lot of time for curling hair or dry shampooing. 

I will sometimes change my shoes out as well, because once you've added big necklaces and more intense makeup, fun daytime flats can find themselves competing with a lot of other outfit elements. 

Until next time,


  1. Beautiful outfit! I absolutely love the arm candy!

  2. You're right. Too many things at once makes outfit confusing. I love your style!
