Easy Transition :: Holiday Outfit From Day To Night

Hello, my friends! Happy Friday! Can you believe Christmas is only FIVE days away?! I am totally stressed out as my “Done Before X’mas List” is getting longer not shorter. :-/ How do you carry your stress? I normally carry it on my shoulder, no, seriously. The muscle groups around my shoulder get so tight that I feel a constant neck pinch, the kind one gets when step into bitter cold air. To easy some of the tension, I went to get a massage. I swear I would stay in the massage room for the rest of this season if I could. 😀

If you are like me, get tense when stressed, I highly recommend you sneak in a deep tissue massage if you can. In addition, I hope today’s looks can provide you with some tips to easy up the transition from office to parties, so you have a little less to stress about. Yeah, who are we kidding — effortless chic takes a ton of effort.

Day Look: leather bolero, white shirt, straight leg trousers and nude pump. Simple cuts and neutral color pallets make it a lot easier to switch up certain element(s) to achieving another look. In this case, I chose tops as my anchor pieces and changed bottoms and accessories for the evening look.IMG_0949 IMG_0959IMG_0983

Evening Look: leather bolero, white shirt, silk skirt, B&W pump. The biggest change between this look and the day one, is the dressier full skirt and B&W pump. I also added a noticeable-sized brooch on the collar to make the whole outfit look more formal. The last finishing touch is red, red lip. A classic red lip makes any occasion a formal one, IMHO. ^^ I found this awesome no-smudge lip stain + gloss from Chanel, it wouldn’t get on anything and I had to take it off with makeup remover at the end of the day. The shade I wore was “Ever Red”.
