WHAT TO WEAR: Day to Night

This Fashionista is a recent graduate who was able to attend the University of Toronto alumni shaker event. This is a perfect look that can be worn all day. I love being a little bit dressier in everyday life, and a nice soft black peplum top is the perfect way to do so. I love this top for its simplicity. It is not too dressy and not too casual. Peplum is also a very flattering style on most women. It tapers in at your waist, and hides any tummy areas that you may be worried about. Of course, black is also a very slimming color!

Being from Canada, one of the most exciting times for us is summer! Since it’s cold for most of the year, summer is the perfect time to break out the cutest shorts. These shorts are from H&M. H&M offers a multitude of cute patterned shorts and if you fall in love with a style, they usually come in different colors allowing you to buy them all! These shorts are the perfect combination of elegance and summer fun.

This Fashionista pairs her blue floral shorts with a nice bright cross-body blue bag. This particular bag is from ALDO, and I would suggest that you choose how much you want to invest into your colored bags. If you want one that is of a higher quality, try this one from Michael Kors. If you want to save a few dollars, try this one from Forever 21. A cross-body is a perfect day to night bag because it’s something that you can wear during the day, running around and doing errands. When it’s time for the night, instead of wearing it across the body, wear it on one shoulder like this Fashionista for an effortless night out look.

Of course, if you’re planning for a full day of eventful fun you want to bring a watch to make sure that you are on schedule. This watch is simple, with a lovely crystal embellishment. This watch from Fossil is the size for a typical men’s watch. Wearing a larger watch sends a confident message to those around you. Instead of wearing a bangle bracelet, try wearing a watch which is the perfect mix of sophistication and practicality. If you find that the white is a little bit too cold of a color, try picking a different color, like a rose gold watch for a feminine touch.

One Simple Change: Swap the shorts for a patterned chino and you could wear this outfit to an interview! If you aren’t feeling bold enough, then swap the shorts for a solid colored chino. The bag stands out on its own. Although it is a bright color, it is one solid color and won’t be distracting for your interviewer. Keep the watch, to show that you are confident, sophisticated and punctual! You will surely be the most stylish and put together candidate in the room.
