Transition time!

The weather is still trying to figure out what to do and so is my closet. I’m not quite ready to bust out the spring wardrobe but new pieces I’ve purchased with spring in mind, seem to be slowly making their debut. It’s a welcomed transition that gets me excited for the days ahead of more time at the park, outdoor dinners, and all the good stuff warm weather brings.

I want to show you how to take a casual day look and turn it easily into a quick night look. Like most people with kids, you have 5 minutes to get ready when the babysitter arrives. Check out how I did it in under 5 minutes without changing my entire outfit and be sure to shop the links to grab the earrings I’m wearing. They are a total game changer!

Day look (click the links to shop): Free people vegan leather jacket (this is an old piece I’ve had for years but this jacket would be a great spring investment), AG denim legging jeans, Target vest (I love this option and this option), Artizia tunic blouse (old, but love this one) Frye fringed sneakers CLICK HERE AND BUY THESE! I promise you’ll love them, Michael Kors Sunglasses similar style here, Necklace from Perch Home, and earrings from Stella and Dot  be sure to grab these, you can wear them 4 different ways!!

earring additions

Night look: I added pieces to the earrings (told you these things were game changers!), touched up with a little gloss, took my hair down (the messy kinks left from the hair tie blend right in to the curling iron waves I had done earlier that morning), added a Totem bracelet from Stella and Dot that compliments the earrings perfectly, changed my shoes to these little delights by Paul Green (which are super comfortable after a long day on my feet and also come in taupe!), and grabbed a clutch to finish the look.

If I were being timed, it probably took me 3 minutes for this quick change!!! I’m typically late for everything (it’s always my New Years resolution), so being able to switch up a look quickly to maximize time at my final destination makes me want to try to create more day-to-night styles. Stay tuned for more and HAPPY SPRING!!!

Easy Peasy

Transitional clothing into spring (FINALLY!) can make things tricky.  An easy way to solve that tragic dilemma (ok not really but some mornings it can feel that way) is by throwing on a great romper. Now finding the romper that flatters you best is a whole other blog post, but take it into consideration next time you’re out shopping and try a few different styles on. There’s nothing better than getting dressed in one shot and not having to worry about so many layers, pieces, and textures to make you feel like you’re sporting a great look, especially on those days when you feel like time has it out for you.

This piece I found on the sale rack at Anthropologie a few weeks ago. While I’m not sure it’s still in stores this one from Anthropologie and this one from Forever 21 are other great options you might like!

details

My earrings are The Melanie from Stella & Dot and the length can be altered by simply clipping off pieces. You can even turn them into simple studs. Getting 3 pairs of earrings in one is always a sure way to win me over. Grab yourself a pair by clicking here. My ring is also from Stella & Dot and is the Zinnia. This is a piece I know I will wear lots in the next warm spring and summer months! Click here and get one!

I found this Botkier Logan bag at a great little boutique in Edgewater, NJ called Mercat. It was on major sale and it can hold waaaay more than it seems.
