Though this Fashionista and I meant to take pictures during our lovely spring break trip together in the Bahamas, the warm weather was a bit too enticing and our time in the sun slipped away quickly. We can’t get away with wearing Lilly Pulitzer dresses now that we are back in Chicago, but this does not mean we still can’t pull together a cute outfit to be worn from day to night.
This Fashionista is sporting dark skinny jeans that are great for dressing up or down throughout the day, from work to a nice dinner out with friends. She wears them with a pair of affordable ankle booties that help make this outfit look a bit classier, a similar style which can be found here. To accessorize this ensemble, this Fashionista wears a flashy Michael Kors statement ring, which complements the gold hardware in her coat.
However, the main reason this outfit works so well during the day as well as for nighttime actives is because of this Fashionista’s field jacket from J.Crew. Layering in the middle of March is necessary due to the drastic changes in weather that are taking place. This coat works well in the soon to be spring temperatures and dresses up the look for a day out shopping with your mother. When evening rolls around, this Fashionista is able to take off her coat for a long sleeve ensemble great for a night on the town.
One Simple Change: This outfit is also great for meeting the parents! To dress up the look even more, swap out the dark skinny jeans for a nice pair of slim fitting black pants and black flats. Such pairings help in creating a more modest outfit that can be worn to a nice restaurant with your significant other and his parents.
