WHAT TO WEAR: Day to Night

Sometimes life can get so insanely busy that you need one outfit to last you all day and all night. I found this Barbie at work on Thursday as she was rereading her “To Do” list for the day. She explained to me that her little black dress had to be appropriate for all of her daytime meetings, as well as her date night plans with her boyfriend. I was even lucky enough to catch her with her spare heels in her car!

For her daytime look, this Fashionista went with a staple, figure-flattering LBD and plain black flip flops with a touch of rhinestone embellishment. She topped it off with a simple necklace and earrings set to add just the right amount of sparkle for work. Finally, a simple light pink lipstick and gloss added the little pop of color she was looking for to complete the look.

For her nighttime look, this Fashionista changed into her killer Valentino Rockstud heels (CiCiHot is a cheaper option) and a blinged-out bracelet to spice up the evening. She topped it off with the same necklace and earring set, as well as bright hot pink lipstick and gloss, perfect for her date night.

One Simple Change: A quick change from flip flops to heels is the best way to complete a day to night look. You can go from casual to dressy in just one pair of shoes. Flip flops are perfect for being on your feet all day at work, but still wanting to look cute, and heels are perfect for elongating your torso and accentuating your curves for a date night with your boyfriend. With the chic, slicked-back sock bun and a bright red or pink lip, you’ll be sure to keep his attention all night. Add a black blazer on a chilly night, or for an extra classy touch for a more sophisticated restaurant. A new pair of shoes and a slight change in lip color will change your whole outfit (and your mood) in just a matter of seconds!
