How to Take a Basic Outfit from Day to Night

April 09, 2019

Day to night outfit
I don't know about you, but I've always felt that there are 2 different ways to dress for the day and the night.  I've also been known to over think them both, that's why today I'm sharing 2 looks, wearing the same exact base outfit.  This base outfit is so simple, it's just a black tank top, jeans with a necklace and earrings.  All I did was switch out my shoes and purse to take this look from day to night.

Day Look

During the day I like to stay casual and comfortable.  I typically wear flat shoes and carry a large tote purse to keep all my toddler gear in.  I love wearing simple tank tops and t-shirts, because you can always change them up by the way you style them.  For this day look I knotted my top at the bottom.

Night Look

I always feel like the night has a dressier feel.  I like to put on a pair of heels or wedge shoes.  I'm 5'1 so I always like to add a little height when I can.  I also like to ditch my big mom purse whenever I have the chance to get out without my little guy.  My go to, kid free purse is my leopard clutch.  Leopard is always a great statement accessories.

  2. That's such a good call to leave the big mom purse behind when you go out! No need to bring along diapers, snacks and random toys, haha!

    1. Yes, every chance I get, I try to bring out a small purse. It's not always easy as a mom.

  3. I totally agree that swapping out my giant diaper bag for something smaller automatically makes me feel more dressed up.

  4. I absolutely love this because not all of us have outfits for day and a night out. I really appreciate you styling the same outfit two different ways.
