As any busy working woman knows, your clothes need to be versatile. The less time you need to spend changing for different events or activities in your day the better! For today’s post I wanted to show you 2 looks – a day and a night – that use the same staple pieces.
The royal blue top is the real showstopper of this day to night look. The bold blue color exudes confidence – making it a perfect piece for the office. Worn under a black blazer with a belt it makes a statement while being completely boardroom ready. Seeing as it is the middle of winter, I knew I wanted a work look that featured boots. My calf-height low-heeled boots are ones I love during the winter months. The mid-calf height is work appropriate, and your feet stay warm and dry.
To take the outfit into post-work dinner or drinks I swapped out the boots for sparkly high heels. This has the added bonus of showing off the fun detail on the pants that were hidden in the work look. To complete the nighttime look, I simply removed the blazer & belt, and added a statement necklace & clutch. The one shoulder cut to this shirt really makes an impression, as does the unique hem!
The royal blue top is from Downtown Chic boutique. This is a female-owned boutique that specializes in carrying pieces that do exactly what this blue top does – takes you from your work day to a night out. While this is my personal favorite item from DTC, they have a number of great pieces, and I highly recommend checking them out! You can get 15% off your order from Downtown Chic with the code LLB15

In other news, I am now 24-hours post-my Los Angeles trip and I am already having LA withdrawals haha. I had the most amazing few days, and can’t wait to head back there again soon. The good news is, I have now discovered how cheap round trip flights from Vancouver to Los Angeles are (under $300!!) and I have a fair bit of blog related work on the horizon in LA; so I am planning on getting back there every 2-3 months!
