Searching for "day to night"

Day to Night: Working Nine to Wine

For those that are new around here, I worked in corporate America for 3 years after college. It’s actually where I started my blog and first shared my love for putting together outfits, which at the time was all work wear since I was working that 9-5 life. After I quit my corporate job, I still made a point to share office wear because frankly there aren’t enough bloggers that do and isn’t that what most women wear on a daily basis? I got you girl.

For me: a 20 something, single, city girl; I was always ready for happy hour or some social event right after work which meant wearing something to work that I could easily transition to after 5 attire. Even now, I firmly believe in purchasing clothes that are wearable for many occasions for example work to weekend or church to wedding. You get what I mean! I will not purchase a piece of clothing if I know I will only be able to wear it one time or for one specific purpose which is why I started my Day to Night series. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can do so here.

LITTLE BLACK DRESS

There is nothing more classy or timeless than a little black dress am I right? Even better if it’s office appropriate! See below for a roundup of some of my favorites.

STATEMENT TOP

If dresses aren’t your thing, you can’t go wrong with a statement top and a quick change-a-roo from your work slacks into a pair of jeans for date night. I used to always keep a pair of jeans, black heels and red lipstick in my car for emergencies and I highly suggest you do the same ūüėČ Some of my favorite statement blouses below!

Day to Night: Mesh Sleeve Top

Work Wear Wednesday

Work Wear Wednesday

It’s been a hot minute since I did a day to night work wear edition and they are always some of my favorites! While I am no longer in the corporate world, styling work wear is always my fav. I showed these pictures to Mama Adams last week and she goes “You need to stop wearing leggings and start wearing more work wear!”. While I can promise you the leggings are never going to stop, I do want to get better about showing you how to style one piece multiple ways more often because I like the challenge:) So if you have any items of clothing you want me to style multiple ways, let me know! Or if you just want to see more creative work wear options like this mesh sleeved top, let me know that too!

This fun mesh top runs true to size and is a piece that can easily take you from day to night. If you don’t feel like the mesh sleeves are appropriate for your office environment, wear a blazer over it and then shed¬†the blazer for happy hour! I am loving this pink one on major sale that would look cute paired with that top and a black pencil skirt.

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 ‚ÄúDiva‚ÄĚ)¬†in¬†your desk drawer or car. Another item that has found a permanent place in my car trunk as well is a leather jacket because you can‚Äôt tell me that this doesn‚Äôt 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

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.
