Get the look; from here to there.
This topic comes from one of my good friends and coworkers, Jess (@jessschenian). Summer is busy; plans change, impromptu get togethers happen. How can you take your look from day to night? We are constantly running from beach, work, cookouts, drinks, date night. I don’t know about you but I don’t have the time, or the energy, to pack multiple outfits for each excursion. Here are some tips that I do to keep my look fresh and perfect for anything that may pop up in my schedule throughout the day.
Stick to the basics. When I pick out my outfits for the week I always dress prepared to go anywhere at any time, taking into account the weather. I always have a nice jacket of some sort with me at all time. My go to would be a black tweed jacket (for cooler days) and a dark green jacket, both from Loft. They are versatile colors and easy to layer on if the day gets cooler or I need to cover my shoulders for whatever reason.
Accessories are important because they can dress up or down an outfit. I like to add a scarf, or statement earrings to a more casual look because they will instantly add a little “something something” to my outfit. Purses and shoes/sandals are an easy way to jazz up an ensemble. I like to combine casual purses/clutch with heels or nice wedges. It’s all about balance, keeping things pulled together but versatile enough to take you from work to play in the matter of minutes.
