Day to Night :: Little Blue Dress

It's the oldest trick in the book. Have dress, add jacket, it's for work! Ditch jacket, it's for happy hour! I know the mags have been suggesting this for years, but I always love to see a day-to-night situation in action.

I wore this dress and jacket to work, and then tossed the jacket to show off the sheer cut-outs for dinner with friends. The purse swap was a quick fix too, since I just tossed it in my larger bag. There's no rocket science here. It's just planning your outfit for the whole day, instead of just your first event.

Day to Night :: Neon Pink Dress

Day to night is a pretty simple concept in the summer. A bit of extra eyeliner, swap out your flats for heels, a little jewelry change and you're good to go. Saturday turned out to be the perfect set up for a day-to-night blog post.

Saturday afternoon, we went to lunch downtown and then wandered around the Farmer's Market and played tourist in our own city and rode the trolley. Flat sandals, a big tote for carrying some peaches from the market, and large sunglasses made this dress perfect for day.

After our Little Rock afternoon, we headed to Conway for dinner with friends and it was a simple switch to get ready for evening. Heels, funky necklace, clutch - and I went ahead and put my hair up for a little extra oomph.
