Searching for "day to night"

Day to Night: Reversible Pieces

White House Black Market Work Wear

White House Black Market Casual Style

Every time I ask you ladies what you want to see more of, the answer is always the same. The verdict is always one piece styled multiple ways because around here we are all about getting the most bang for our buck. Well let me introduce you to quite possibly the most genius idea to having more styling options without paying for multiple pieces: reversible clothing. White House Black Market has come out with a new Reversible Collection that is changing the game. The line includes reversible tops and dresses which is really amazing when you consider how many more outfits you can make when you get two for the price of one.

I am styling one top, two ways for you ladies but I also want to note that their reversible dress collection is just as fabulous. From work to weekend, I’m amazed that this collection can do it all. If you are in need of a little black dress, this is my favorite one from the reversible collection. Such a great option for work, date night, church or weddings!

If you are looking for business professional clothing, White House Black Market has you covered! You will find suits that have a little more character than say your run of the mill, no personality black suit. For instance, I love that this skirt has a flounce hem which is something I have never seen before and is so flattering. If you are confined to wearing a suit everyday, you might as well have some fun with your options! My blazer also has a slight peplum detail to it that makes it stand out and hug your girly figure a little better than most. I particularly love that it is a three quarter sleeve which makes wearing a blazer in this southern heat a little more bearable.

I almost couldn’t believe the transition from yellow to such a bold patterned top! My favorite part being that once turned to the patterned side, the yellow still shows on the bottom of the tank for a layered look. I styled this look for a casual Friday at the office but as soon as that blazer comes off, you are ready for after 5 cocktails! I’m already planning many nights out with this little tank.

One of the reason’s I have a particular liking to White House Black Market is that they cater to all sizes: regular, petite, plus and short sizing options! I am just shy of 5’4″ so finding petite clothing, especially work wear is always a struggle. For sizing reference I am wearing an XSP in the tank, OP in the jackets and a 00P in the jeans and skirt. I would say that everything runs very true to size.

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Wednesday this year, I wanted to provide some inspiration for all of my girlboss ladies that will be going straight from the office to dinner. What I love about this dress, is it’s versatility. You could honestly wear it for any occasion and if that’s not a total selling point get this! It is under $50 and comes in 10 colors! I’ve been eyeing the Tea Rose and Vintage Indigo colors next – so perfect for Spring! It does run true to size and is long enough for work. For height purposes, I am 5’4″.

My pro tip for all of my working ladies that want to easily transition their outfit from day to night is to always stash a pair of black strappy heels, jeans and a bold lip color (my go-to is MAC “Diva”) in your desk drawer or car. My badass jacket has found a permanent place in my car trunk as well because you can’t tell me that this doesn’t automatically up the cool factor on any outfit you put on! There are so many times these 3 essentials saved me from having to make a quick dash home and wasting perfectly good happy hour time #priorties If you are still looking for a Valentine’s Day dress or if you are a gal that likes to stock up on versatile dresses that can take you seamlessly from day to night (my type of girls!), then here are a few more options!

You all might remember this gorgeous jacket from a few months back. It was actually my favorite purchase from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale as I was able to score it on major sale. Since then, I’ve been trying to wait to share this post with you until the jacket went on sale again because it is a bit of a splurge, especially for such a unique piece that some might find hard to style. Well you all are in luck because one of my best friends found an identical dupe for you at a quarter of the cost!

While this jacket is definitely a statement piece, it is easier to style than you would think! My advice? Just let the jacket win. What do I mean by that? Don’t try to overpower it. Let it do all of the talking. Simply wear other pieces that do not stand out. As you can see from both of my styled looks, I wear simple, solid colored pieces and then add a pop of color and edge with the jacket.

Day to Night: Bodysuit Style

Day to Night Work wear bodysuit style, How to style a bodysuit

Bodysuits have been around for awhile now and for some insane reason I had put off trying this trend. I had many concerns. Some were pretty logical I would say, like how would one go to the bathroom in a pinch? Or wouldn’t you see panty lines through your clothes? Certainly you can start to see my irrational fear of this trend and why I put it off for so long.

When I was approached by my friends at Luxington Boutique to design an outfit that could easily take you from work to an after 5 cocktail, I jumped at the idea to create an outfit with a piece of clothing that I had never tried before. Insert this amazing olive green bodysuit here.

1. Day Look: Pair a bodysuit with a dramatic wide leg pair of pants to wear to the office. The contrast of a more fitted top and loose bottom will give you a chic look that is totally office appropriate. My favorite office looks are the ones that no one else is brave enough to try but you know will get you tons of compliments. This is that look and the plus side is that it’s insanely comfortable too.

2. Night Look: I firmly believe that every woman should always have a pair of jeans, heels and lipstick on hand at any time. Car, desk drawer, etc. In order to take this bodysuit from the office to after work cocktails, I simply added these 3 things plus my favorite 2 accessories- a black bralette and a choker necklace. These latter 2 items are my favorite ways to add a little bit of edge into your look. Combined, all 5 of these items are the perfect recipe to your casual after 5 attire.

I felt inclined to tell you that I couldn’t end this post without saying that both of my initial fears of wearing a bodysuit were quickly remedied after finding out that 1) most bodysuits have an  “easy-access” snap section so you can go to the bathroom without having to take the entire thing off and 2) so far everything that I have tried to wear with my bodysuit, panty lines have not been an issue.

So if you have been wanting to take the plunge on a bodysuit, I highly suggest getting one that is versatile enough to wear to work so you get the most use out of it! Luxington Boutique is the perfect one stop shop for both work wear and everything else in between so if you are in the Houston area, make sure to stop by and check them out!

Twas the Night Before The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Set your alarm clocks because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goes live TONIGHT for all cardholders. PSA: it is not too late to get approved for a Nordstrom credit card here

12 pm PST // 2 am CST // 3 am PST

There is only one sale of the year that could pull me out of a deep slumber to shop. But let’s be honest it won’t even be a deep slumber because I will hardly sleep! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is literally like Christmas morning minus the part you are the one playing Santa Claus and using real money instead of make believe North Pole money. Nonetheless, it it completely worth it. In fact, the past two years I’ve taken off work the first day of the sale so that I could wake up and shop it! Crazy lady status I know.

TIPS TO GET THE GOOD STUFF

  • Set your alarm! The good stuff will go fast, so if you are dedicated to scoring the best of the best, you will want to wake up early and head to itsallchictome.com where I will have the low down on the best items from the sale. I’ve already gotten a sneak peak at everything that will be included so all I have to do is link everything up when the sale goes live.
  • Make a list– If you’ve already perused the Nordstrom Catalog and know of exact items you want to snag. Write down the exact item name so you can search it when the sale goes live. If not, make a general list. This is mine: Tory Burch work appropriate purse, jeans, sweater, basic tees, and Marc Fisher boots.
  • Filter by category and specific brands that you know and love! Being an avid Nordstrom shopper I know which are popular, budget friendly brands and items that WILL sell out first. See below for my suggestions.
  • Check out my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale drop down menu items (located at the top of my blog). I will add to these right at 2 am CST when the sale goes live will all of the best items and items I expect to sell out first.
