From Day to Date Night

I am all about multitasking, so if I can go from day to date night with some basic closet staples and only a few accessory swaps, then I’m game. I ordered a fitted short sleeve dress from Pink Blush, an online boutique, with theeee cutest clothes (even carry extended and maternity sizing!) This dress is a definite closet staple for me. The piece is perfect to dress up or down for any occasion. It can not only be worn in warmer weather, but also in colder, with boots and tights. I liked that the dress was red since the holidays are fast approaching. I also ordered a black sweater with suede elbow detail that I just now noticed is maternity haha (no I am not pregnant), but the fabric is super soft and the length is perfect for tall girls and so it’s still a win in my book.

For day, I styled my dress with a pair of booties and a leopard scarf. I wore this out and about with my boys and was both comfy and warm. I would also wear this outfit to work. (would add tights and long boots to be a bit more covered up, though).

To turn my “Day” look to “Date Night” worthy, I simply swapped out my basic brown booties for a peep toed black pair, swapped my scarf for a necklace, my white tote with a leopard clutch and of course my nude lip for a red one. Total 360!

 

 

 

Once you have a a few basic staples in your closet, the possibilities are endless. And if you have time to go on a date (which I never do haha), you won’t even have to change your outfit! Now, you tell me, what would be some of your basic closet “must have” choices from Pink Blush?!

    Cute look! My “Day” look would consist of yoga pants and one of my hubby’s tees. I don’t think I could swap that into a date look, but your look is adorable!

    Ok, I’m totally digging the dress. I like pieces that multitask because we are moderate minimalist. I need things that look cute, yet still function and will stand the test of time. This dress looks so good on you!

    I love both looks! The dress is perfect for multiple outfits. I really need to get a few pieces like that since I often find myself wearing multiple outfits on date day/night.

    You look beautiful! I love the red dress/red lip combo. (I even see a bit of red highlights in your hair in that last pic!) I’m so into leopard and cheetah prints this season!
