With the temperatures finally cooling off (even in Dallas), I can’t help but look forward to another wonderful fall. This time of transition keeps me thinking about so many cute outfits I can put together for my off-days.
If you are looking for a look to take you from day to night, then look no further. I have found the perfect little black dress for the season. This Lush Hailey dress from Nordstrom is under $50 and comes in seven colors. My favorite, of course, is the classic black color; however I will probably go back and grab a couple of other colors this fall. This dress is made of crepe material and is perfect for a casual look or can be dressed up for a night out.
I am also pairing some earrings from AU Rate that will also look great, day or night. If you haven’t heard of AU Rate, it is a fine jewelry company out of New York that makes sustainable jewelry from local sources. This means that all of their pieces are made right here in the USA; a company that supports local businesses is really something I can get behind. In addition to this, for each piece of jewelry sold, they donate books to underprivileged children in Philadelphia; you can learn more about the cause here. This company does so much good, and creates some pretty nice jewelry too. I chose a pair of drop earrings that I fell in love with; these simple earrings add a classic touch for both daytime and evening looks.
Here, I have created two style boards to show how this dress is perfect for both with this look:
For the daytime look, I recommend belting the dress in a gold belt, similar to the one above and pairing it with some simple black mules. This look is great for walking around the farmers market on a Saturday or just running errands. Plus, the Tory Burch belt is reversible, so you can pair it with other outfits as well. This look is simple, yet put together.
For the evening look, I am pairing it with some simple black heels and a bright moto jacket, like the one above. The pop of color will really make your outfit stand out. This is the perfect look for a date night or a dinner party.
As you can see, both looks are perfect for going from day to night. The key is to have some basic pieces and pair them with accessories that dress the outfit up or down. The earrings from AU Rate really help tie the looks together; I love it!
