Day to Night Style in 1 Easy Step

As a mom and digital media gal, I am juggling kids and informal meetings during the day but need to hit up events at night. I also have no time to change or think up a new style. This is why I came up with a way to go from day to night style in one easy step!

I have learned to invest in transition pieces, meaning those that can span both seasons and formality levels. My favorite trick is to use a dress and add to it- meaning, either put a skirt over the dress and use it as a shirt, or pop on a shirt and use the dress as a skirt. Get it?

Here is how I transition from daytime to night by simply taking off my sweater.

The Outfit Details

As for accessories, I am SO into statement earrings lately (post to come focused JUST on this new fabulous fad, so stay tuned). These can transform daytime dress to nighttime night-out-ready in a second. These stunners are from Park Lane- my fabulous friend Julyn gave them to me; they are so J. Lo and I love it!

I grabbed this bag from Ella Louvi in The Glen, an amazing boutique that I head to every week. The best part about this bag (outside of the unique shape) is that it converts from a cross-body to a traditional purse by just adjusting the strap. As a mom, I only carry cross-body bags when with my kids so I have both hands free (if you have met my high energy kiddos, you understand why). This purse has a cute turnkey lock which keeps it secure during the day and adds a little charm for night. It retails for around $50, such a perfect piece!

The dress that I am wearing is from Target, and I love the simple design. The back scoops down, so I paired it with The Bra Lab St. Tropez back strap. If you haven't heard of this fabulous company, get the details in my post here!

My boots are over-the-knee faves from years ago, when OTK boots were considered Pretty Woman territory. They double as tights, providing a little warmth during these chilly winter months.

Shop my black and white dress style here, all options are under $100!



How do YOU go from day to night with no time to spare?
