Searching for "day to night"

Day to Night: Reversible Pieces

White House Black Market Work Wear

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

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!

I’m such a homebody at heart so it’s not uncommon (especially during the holidays) to find me snuggled up on the couch in my cozies, with a face mask on, sipping mama’s homemade hot chocolate (recipe here) and watching a good chick flick. I recently had the opportunity to try out Olay’s new launch of their clay stick face masks and I am so excited to share my favs. I like to use face masks just like the next girl, but I never know which ones to use or what the difference is between all of them. With so many on the market, it can be a little overwhelming am I right?!

I’ve also heard of the term “multi-masking” but felt a little too out of my element to give it a try it until recently. If you don’t know what “multi-masking” is, it is just what it sounds like: using multiple face masks at one time. The purpose of multi-masking is to target different facial needs since most of us don’t have the same type of skin or problem areas all over our face. While this Instagram famous beauty trend seems like playing Picasso on your face, it really is quite genius!

If you think about it, your T zone is usually oiliest which tends to cause clogged pores and breakouts. Because of this you want a mask that will target those stressed out areas, detox and reduce those pores, and leave your skin feeling nice and refreshed. Insert my favorite Olay Pore Detox clay stick Mask here! While I primarily use it on my forehead, I will also apply it on my nose and chin depending on how clogged my pores are in those areas. Personally, I saw the most noticeable results with this face mask being that I have oily, acne-prone skin and this mask left my skin feeling cleaner and softer than ever!

Moving onto the other areas of your face, your cheeks are normally going to be the dryer part of your face. They need hydration. Insert the Olay Glow Boost clay stick Mask here! Not only does this mask hydrate your skin, it leaves it with a natural looking glow. It brings new skin cells to life with micro-exfoliating white charcoal. This mask is very mild and is a good one to use all over on days that your skin feels a little dull.

Lastly, our skin always have those problem areas that just need a little extra TLC some days. Insert the Olay Fresh Reset clay stick Mask here! This mask is great just what it sounds like- a skin refresh. It is infused with anti-oxidant minerals to give your skin the extra loving that it needs. Lately my skin has been having horrible hormonal acne, so I will trade off between this mask and the Pore Detox.

The best part about these masks is that they are inexpensive and can be found at your local Walmart. With a low-price tag like that, you might as well try out all three. Why wear one mask when you could wear three at one time?! Another pus is that they are mess free You can apply the stick right onto your face without having to dirty your hands. This is actually better for your face as you are not getting dirt and bacteria from your hands onto your face.

If you do decide to have a girls night in complete with an Olay Stick mask or three, don’t forget that Hallmark Channel is already playing Christmas movies (eek!) and that mama’s homemade hot chocolate is just 4 ingredients. Talk about the perfect girls night in:)
