Fashion for Many Functions

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have multiple plans in one night, including my friend's photo exhibit and a late night fashion show. Oh, and I had to go straight to these events from work. So what did I wear to make a look go from day to night and keep it appropriate for multiple locations?

Layers! If you're like me, you'd love to wear heels during 8 hour days, but then you are crippled with pain or develop unsightly bunions. Instead, I opt for boots, oxfords or ballet flats as my staples.

My office is a pretty casual, business casual environment so I was able to "corporatize" my silky tiered dress with a black blazer and leather boots.

For the evening look I traded the boots for my lace-up wedges, ditched the blazer and brought a feathered broach with me to pin in my hair if I felt like adding more glamor to my look.

The key here is layering and making slight edits to the outfit throughout the day. I just left the blazer and boots behind at work and went out for a night on the town!

Outfit from head to toe: necklace from Tiara Love, black blazer from H&M, sequin dress from Urban Outfitters, black boots by Geox, black wedges from Urban Outfitters, and ring from Rudy's Roundup.
