Jacket Swap

What a difference a Jacket makes!!! A Blazer over slacks - totally 9 to 5 ready! Slacks paired with an edgier Moto-Style Leather jacket ready for a night out! I love when classics paired together {Classic Wide-Leg Trousers, basic T/tank/button down, classic pumps/booties in winter & simple jewelry} can easily transition from Boardroom to Happy Hour!!! Gotta love those items you can get wear out of in multiple avenues of your life. 

I tend to get items in a 'you are work wear', 'you are non-work' & then get frustrated when I can't find anything to wear! I just added these Slacks to my closet, scooped up on sale and am excited to get plenty of wear out of them! And yes I realize, this is the 7,942 time I used these Booties in a post, you'd think by now the trigger would have been pulled- almost, they were on sale at NM's and of course not one in my size left in the entire company and online retailers haven't let them go to sale - I am stalking! All the rest are already items/variations of, that I own - wahoo! 

Jacket: Blazer  /  Leather Moto

In addition to my jacket, I'd swap my work tote for a clutch {a CurlyInTheCity Fold-Over black one of course :)}, add an extra coat of mascara and lipstick - then I'd be ready to go!!!

Do you have any tips or tricks for taking your Day looks into Night? What items swing double duty in your closet in your Day and Night lives?

  1. I do the same thing as you, a jacket is my way to make my look go from day to night. It's so easy and it really changes the look. I really hope you get those booties, they are so perfect.

  3. I need to be more thoughtful about transitioning day to night. Most of the time when I have to wear something that will be worn in the day and that night I tend to look a little overdone during the day and a little underdone at night...something like a jacket switch is so smart.

    And I hope you get those booties soon! They are so pretty. And I just hate how NM does the separation between online retailer and in stores. It makes it so frustrating sometimes.
