Day to Play









Top: Target
Vest: 41 Hawthorn via Stitchfix (last season)
Necklace: Baublebar
Sunnies: Rayban

Wanted to try something new on with today's post. If you like it, let me know and I can make it a more regular feature! The idea is an outfit you can take from "Day" to "Play".

I'm fortunate to be able to dress pretty casually for work depending on the day and meetings with clients, but even still sometimes when work rolls right into evening plans, I wish I had a better look for a night out.

So here are my secrets to seamlessly switching things up: 

1. Carry a large handbag (it holds your shoes)

2. Change your shoes (you know, the ones in your large handbag)

3. Remove a layer and/or add an accessory 


Boom. Done. 

For day, I'm jazzing up my basic black look with some Tory Revas and this herringbone vest I scored from Stitchfix this winter. Side note -- if you haven't heard of Stitchfix, you're missing out. Check it out here. When it's time for city cocktails with a girlfriend, I switch out the flats for pumps, lose the vest, and add a simple necklace to dress the look up a bit. Easy, breezy, pass me a martini. 

What do you think?

Pick up a trendy piece or two:
