Day to Night With Banana Republic

Making post-work plans is one of my favorite ways to add some spice into my work week. Whether it's a date night with Mike or drinks with my girl friends, having midweek plans always seems to make the weekend come quicker. With Mike always traveling for work and my friends in all different areas, it isn't always convenient to run home in-between work and plans to change my outfit. One way I get around this is by planning a day-to-night outfit so I'm workday appropriate but can easily switch to a more glam look for night. 

This silky sheath dress is the perfect dress for dinner or drinks al fresco. The silky material keeps me cool as the sun sets and I love the tiered ruffles on the bottom that add an unexpected level of sass. To keep it daytime appropriate, I simply added a light weight button up knotted over the top with my favorite pair of flats. To bring the look into night, I threw on my favorite wedges, added a fun statement necklace, and swiped a coat of my favorite lipstick and I was good to go!. In only few minutes I can go from the office to drinks with just a few little tweaks.
