Today at STYLEanthropy, as promised, I’m sharing with you how I used my ruffle sleeve top and culottes outfit for a day to night dressing in one of our recent quick getaways. You may recall this look below that I featured in a previous outfit post. And like I said there, with a simple change of accessories, I managed to take the casual and comfy outfit to dinner with family.
First off, I apologize for the quality of the photos of my night time look. We took these inside the hotel with their moody lights at night. Plus, the hubby tried something new with the camera settings, and umm… sorry Hubs, but that didn’t work! It seemed okay in the small screen of the SLR. But when I uploaded it to my laptop and tried to brighten it up more, it affected the quality of the photos and resulted to grainy ones. Sorry about that. Everyday is a learning opportunity!
…with a simple change of shoes from this leather platform sneakers to this suede wedge sandals (under $40 btw), and with an addition of a chic cross body bag, I managed to take this outfit into an evening of great food and even greater company!
Day to Night Dressing
That is the key to day to night dressing. When you don’t want to pack a lot of clothes for a quick getaway, or perhaps you’re pressed with time, or you can’t bring a lot with you, choose outfits that you can easily transition from day to night with just a change of accessories! Other things that can help:
- Adding more delicate necklaces or bracelets for night time will also help dress up any outfit be it even a pair of jeans and a t-shirt!
- Layering with a blazer or cute cardigan (or a dressier kimono type layer) can also UP that outfit game for an evening of fun.
- Putting on some makeup (which clearly, I didn’t do) will also take your look to night time.
For outfit details of this look, just check my previous post here. The only thing that changed in this night time version is my pair of platform suede sandals and the addition of the Chloe small Drew cross body bag with this Michael Kors faux fur pompom charm.
Happy Friday, folks! Please keep coming back to STYLEanthropy. There will be another post coming up tonight or tomorrow, sharing a newly discovered eye cream! XO.
