The recent heat wave that hit Oregon gave a new meaning to the phrase “April Showers bring May Flowers.” In one day, people went from wearing jeans and sweaters to skirts and crop tops. This Fashionista took the opportunity for some fun in the sun, sporting a zipped, black crop top and a floral mini. This outfit paired with her black bag and strappy sandals are perfect for a cute and casual look on this sunny day.
This outfit is also a perfect example for a day to night look. In terms of achieving an outfit like this, accessories count! Alone, this Fashionista’s crop top and mini pencil skirt may look a little too dressy for daytime wear. However, by matching it with a casual black bag and strappy sandals, she has toned down the look to be suitable for the daytime.
Sandals are great for the day when you are walking around campus or running errands. These strappy sandals are extremely comfortable to walk in and even give a little heel. Personally, I am in love with the gladiator sandal trend. Here’s one from H&M that would suit any summer outfit well and the rubber soles also ensure comfort. Wedges are also a good alternative for a more ladylike look. These ones from Chinese Laundry are fun and colorful, a combination perfect for the upcoming summer!
For a smooth transition to a night out, all this Fashionista needs to do is exchange her sandals for some stunner heels. I think there’s nothing more vital to a day to night look than the right shoes. Just changing a pair of shoes can completely change the vibe of the outfit. For example, these heels from TOBI will not only make sure she has a sweet night out but also match her outfit perfectly.
So if you’re like this Fashionista with a busy day and night ahead, make sure to bring a change of shoes. It can make all the difference in transitioning your outfit from day to night. I guess that’s why there is no such thing as having too many pairs of shoes.
