Office Outfit of the Day

Ring: BaubleBar
Dress: Thakoon
Bag: Valentino

If you're like me, the work day does not end at 5:00.  I have such an odd schedule, and every day is different.  Sometimes I don't start working until late in the afternoon, and that makes for some long evenings.  I also sometimes have days that change at a moments notice.  I think if you work with clients, that's part of your life.  Lately I've had to be really adaptable because I've received some calls that made me drop everything to go meet people.  Even though I work out of my home, I find myself always getting ready as if I was working out of the house and also thinking about where I may end up after work hours, too.  This outfit is another one of those that's great to wear to work and then out later.  The shoes can easily be changed out for a pair of basic black pumps for the office.

Date Night Outfit of the Day

Coat: Reiss
Bag: Glint
Dress: Joie
Sandals: Kate Spade

Party season is kind of cyclical.  It ramps up at the end of the year for the holidays and then dies off during the cold winter.  Then suddenly the sun starts shining, and things warm up, and parties start up again.  Before it's too warm though, you still need to layer, especially for any outdoor events.  The pale color scheme is perfect for spring, and the coat will keep you warm next to the heating lamps.

Date Night Outfit of the Day

Dress: Reiss
Earrings: C Wonder
Bracelet: Anthropologie

One of those great outfits that can transition from work to a night out, this one may be a little too dressed if you work in a business casual or casual office environment.  On the other hand, if you work in a more formal office environment, you might want to wear a pair of pumps to the office and switch them out with the sandal at the end of the day.  Darker crystals in the jewelry add so much more glam than traditional clear crystals, and the large tassels on the bag are something you should be seeing everywhere this spring.

Date Night Outfit of the Day

Dress: Kain
Earrings: Dara Ettinger
Bag: Almaplena
Bracelet: Alexis Bittar
Boots: Naya

This started out as an Office-wear outfit.  I found a lovely grey shift dress to feature, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it because of the price.  I always try to balance the cost of the pieces I choose, but it's true that sometimes something costs more than you may be comfortable with.  If you truly love something but it's just not in your budget, please let me know.  I'm sure I could find an affordable choice for you that would be very similar.
