Many of you know that I live a little bit of a double life. By day I work in advertising, and the evenings and weekends are when I focus on Brown Paper Doll! While fashion is a part of my everyday life, I often dress differently for my day-job than when I attend blogger events. I would love to be able to come home and get glammed up before my evening commitments, but I don’t always have that luxury! AND I know that you don’t have to be a blogger to face that same conundrum. Happy hour or date night can often be right after you “punch out” for the day. That’s why I partnered with Amazon Fashion to showcase one of my looks where I transitioned from day to evening. Sometimes a couple of easy tweaks can transform an outfit and take you from desk to dinner in no time!
One of my favorite looks for work is a crisp collared shirt with high-waisted jeans (usually ripped). Since I work in advertising, I can be a little bit edgy, but still need to be professional. I often throw on my favorite navy blazer or leather jacket depending upon my mood and client meeting schedule. In this instance, the warm weather has me trading up my black ripped jeans and opting for high-waisted white culottes and a chunky heel that’s equally bright and comfortable. That’s the amazing thing about Amazon, I can find my go-to work staples like this classic theory Oxford shirt, but also funkier fashion finds like my velvet Loeffler Randall mules.
After work it’s time to meet Mr. O’Toole for dinner or grab a cocktail with my girls! I don’t like to make too much of a fuss when I transition my look. I want items that are simple, but make an impact! For this particular look I couldn’t wait to grab my new favorite piece of jewelry. While chokers have been in for a while, I’m a recent fan of the simple collar. This one by Jules Smith was a must-have in my Amazon cart! It’s sleek design, but gleaming finish adds the right amount of glamour to my weekday look! On a side-note, I can’t wait to wear this as a layering piece for a more trendy look on the weekend. To make my outfit more after-hours appropriate, I kicked off my sensible heels and threw on a pair with pom tassels. With these couple of changes, all I need is a cocktail and I’m ready for my evening plans!
