If there’s one thing I love more than a cute and summery daytime outfit, it’s one that doubles as a saucy going out ensemble. While I do look forward to my Thursday night outfit searching and primping sessions (come Tuesday I’m already brainstorming), I absolutely love when I can double dip and rock the perfect day-to-night look. If I can go straight from class to happy hour downtown, you won’t really catch me complaining. Finding a getup that can turn just as many heads at 11 p.m. that it does at 11 a.m. is quite the art — and it’s practically effortless!
One of my favorite day-to-night outfits to sport definitely involves some chic southwest-inspired pieces like this Fashionista’s. Weathered cowboy boots might be the signature Flagstaff statement piece, especially in the spring. Paired with some preppy mint green skinnies, they add just enough grit to an otherwise dainty and feminine look — not to mention they’re perfect for dancing. This Fashionista knows just how to dress for a long day of class followed by a night on the town at everyone’s favorite local bar. Especially when it’s country night!
A chunky turquoise necklace pops against a sexy white blouse and completes this Fashionista’s timeless look. Turquoise and boots are indicative of a true Arizona-chic ensemble and are easy to dress up or down, particularly for a night full of mason jar-filled cocktails and two-stepping with dapperly dressed collegiate cowboys! This Lumberjack’s sophisticated accessories combined with her understated basics make her getup ideal for a truly perfect day-to-night scenario.
One Simple Change: For a little extra drama, add a feisty red lip and dark denim jacket to this daytime look. Nights out always end up a little more exciting if there’s some fierce lip color involved, and who can’t appreciate a classic Canadian tuxedo? I’ll admit that denim on denim has become a personal addiction of mine, but I promise it’s finally become accepted in the fashion world as well. Finish off your look with some pouty lips and a structured jean jacket and you’re sure to catch the eye of every Luke Bryan lookalike in sight!
