DAY TO NIGHT LOOK

there are many times when i will be dressed in a casual daytime look and be too lazy to change the whole thing for an evening out to dinner. what i usually do is just switch out the shoes and accessories but keep the base items the same. something as simple as throwing on heels and pulling your hair back can completely transform your outfit to look more dressy. i picked up a few of these items at nordstrom rack for a really good price. here’s an example…

during the day, i wore a pair of black jeans with a simple and super comfortable white v-neck tee. i added a black beanie, my vans moccasins and i’m carrying my computer in my orange backpack.

this is a look i would wear to the office or for a casual coffee meeting in the afternoon.

shop the daytime look:

KAIN white t-shirt, MIH black jeans, Vans moccasins from Nordstrom Rack, Zara beanie, Frost River orange backpack.

now let’s say i was going to meet someone for cocktails or arian for a dinner date…

Q51A7548_print

i would keep the white tee and black jeans, pull my hair in a ponytail or bun, and switch to heels. also, this joie sequin blazer and darker lipstick immediately gives it a nighttime feel.

so there you have it. a day to night outfit without a huge hassle.

shop the evening look:

white t-shirt, MIH black paris jeans, Calvin Klein heels from Norstrom Rack, Joie sequin blazer from Nordstrom Rack, and a vintage necklace.

    You made the transition for day to night look effortless. Both looks look amazing but I love the night jacket!

    Brooke says:

    So cute! Love the basic daytime look, but my heart is always in getting dressed up—so your night look is my fav! The sequin blazer is so pretty. I might have to stop in Joie tonight!

    xo Brooke | honestly, b.

    Speaking from one man’s point of view (my husband’s), he would definitely not be a fan of the ponytail at night. He often pulls mine out of the elastic even if I have that horrible dent in my hair! I have to agree that I think your hair down for night would be great – you could sleeken it if you wanted a true change. Otherwise, I love the simplicity of the clothes transition!

    two things: first i love your return (maybe only temporary) to more casual, wearable clothing.second, it’s interesting seeing you doing jeans and pants more.

    Chelsea says:

    You look gorgeous in both looks Bri! I agree with Rachel, it’s nice to see you styling more wearable items.

    I love, love, love your vans moccasin! I tried to look for it online but to no avail! 🙁

    Cate says:

    Katia, the style name is Mohikan and they have them online. (Obviously, I loved them, too). The pickings are slim, but I tracked down a pair in my size on one site!

    Claire says:

    I love this post, and would love to see more of them!

    It’s great that you are getting ideas from this post as well
    as from our argument made here.

    Hollie says:

    Loving the day outfit! It’s so causal yet so refined! This may be an odd question… but what brand of bra are you wearing??? I love the classic look of it from what I can see. I’ve been looking for something that is simple and has full coverage. Something that would go perfect under a t-shirt!
