How to: Go from day to date

Since you're all social butterflies, I know that you have or will run into the problem of being out around town all day long and not having time to change into something date appropriate (or general fancy dinner appropriate).  So I've come up with this little guide on how to dress for both a day out and a date night all in one outfit.

1.  Dress it up.  Start with what you want to wear to your nice night out.  It's best to go simple here so the piece can be easily combined with something else without looking out of place. I'd suggest a lace dress or a black dress.

2.  Pick your shoes.  What you want here is something versatile.  Forgo the sneakers and grab a pair that will be comfortable for your activities during the day, but are also dressy enough to be worn at night.  Sandals or flats with a pop of colour or metallic finish are my choice here.

3.  Dress it down.  A denim or chambray blouse can go a long way.  Another great option is a plaid shirt.  Whatever you choose, just keep in mind that it needs to be casual.  Even if you're a little mismatched, that's fine- flaunt that effortlessly chic thing that you're gonna have going on.

Once it's time for your evening festivities, just take off your casual blouse and you'll be good to go!

  3. That's a nice white dress. I'm sure your date will be so impressed. Definitely sweet =)

  4. I was never really good on dates. I never really figured out how to dress...Most of my "boyfriends" happened to be around and we knew each other :D
    But either way this is a very helpful post. I love the jacket!

  5. Love your outfit and tips! I've been dressing up quite a bit when I see the boyfriend outside and I love being fun and pretty at the same time. An outfit need not be too specific when it comes to going out. We must be comfortable at all times!
