Day to Night

Oh yes it’s ladies night and the feelin’s right.
Oh yes it’s ladies night, oh what a night.

How to transition an outfit from the 9-5 daily grind to an after work happy hour or girls’ night out? You can dress up a daytime casual piece for the evening, but my trick is to downplay an evening dressy piece for the daytime. I am ready to be your wingwoman.

Unless I was a cocktail waitress or Samantha from SATC, I would never wear this open back dress to work because it shows so much skin. My solution is to wear a blouse underneath the dress. Voila! Instantly work appropriate. I chose my momma’s vintage sheer blouse because the fabric is thin enough to be worn under the dress. To keep my look ultra conservative, I decided to wear black opaque tights and a pair of classic black pumps. My favorite detail is the unexpected cutout on the heel.

For the nighttime look, all I have to do is peel off the layers underneath, and change the shoes and bag. I’ll be ready faster than you can say TGIF.

Thank Goodness It’s Fashion!
