I hope y’ll are having a great weekend and also this is Memorial Day weekend for some of you and you get a long weekend because of that which is really cool. There is a lot going on right now. In India, we had the biggest election in the world and guess what “Democracy Wins”. In this time, some are on vacation and some still are on work but still, we can steal some moments to spend with our loving ones. I created this look especially for this. This look, I’m going to talk about is a “Day to Night Outfit”.
This look is ideal for both, workplaces or a date night. If you are working and suddenly you have a date night, you don’t have to bother much about your clothes apart from doing some changes in hair and makeup. For this look, I chose a pair of beige culottes pants, a natural white jacquard frilled collar blouse, a pair of beige basic block heels and some dainty gold jewellery and to finish it off with a white satchel bag. And I was good to go for whatever the occasion was.
Such looks can come really handy if you’re in a rush like I’m. Slight change of hair and accessories will do best. And this look was decent and sober enough for an Office day and flattering enough for a date night. I so love the blouse for its delicate and feminine look. Culottes were doing their best by matching with blouse. Let’s take a look at each piece.
White Jacquard Blouse
The moment I saw this blouse, I just went for it. I really need a few pieces of such a feminine silhouette for my special occasions. It has an airy weave with an elasticated neckline and small frilled collar. The most flattering part is its raglan balloon sleeves which have narrow elastication at the cuffs. It has rounded hem and the back part is slightly long. I love its self-designed flowers which make this blouse really feminine. This blouse reminds me of Victorian time fashion and I think it has a vintage touch that’s why I’m so drawn to this blouse. I’m determined to include some more blouses like this one in my wardrobe for such day to night occasions. You can’t go wrong having some good pieces of feminine blouses. Fabric is breathable and all season compatible. This blouse is little baggy though so one size down recommended. Although this blouse was already out stock right after I purchased but they fill the stocks and again it was out of stock. I will link some similar blouse as well. I got is blouse in XS for $49.99 which is not expensive because it is a designer piece inspired by high street premium designer brands like CHLOE. The same blouse with slight different is available in beige colour as well. I’ll link it as well if you might wanna take a look.
Beige Jersey Culottes
Those pants I’m wearing are Jersey Culottes. When I saw, couldn’t resist to buy them because I had nothing in plain beige bottoms. These culottes are essential for wardrobe especially if you still are facing little chilly where you stay because they are warm enough. These pants will be more beneficial in Autumn and winter for tropical places like India. These pants aren’t see through, they have really thick and quality fabric which I wasn’t expecting at all. I recommend wearing nude shapewear underneath in order to hide lumps and bumps. They are high waisted and have calf length which is what I was expecting being petite. They make me look taller. They don’t have unnecessarily wide legs, they are right in a ratio by having straight legs. Waistline has concealed elastication. They are made up of Elastane 5% Polyester 95%. I got them in size XS for $24.99 which really inexpensive for such an essential piece which will always be wearable for so many looks apart from this DAY TO NIGHT OUTFIT.
Heels and accessories
I’ve been wearing these beige block sandals a lot lately because
1. They are really basic and go with my all outfits and
2. They are really comfortable because of their block pattern.
My outfit has beige Bottoms which I tried to continue in order to look taller. For the price, they were really inexpensive again for $29.99. To know more in detail about these sandals, read my other blog Three must-have staples of this summer.
I kept my jewellery very minimal by wearing gold hoops and pendant with some bracelets. Gold hollow Hoops are my favourite ready to go earrings forever, kind of jewellery essentials for me. Without wearing right jewellery pieces I couldn’t complete my “day to night outfit”. My 22k gold necklace is from a premium brand called Tanishq, they make single pieces of each design that’s why the same necklace is not available. But, I’ll find some similar ones and link them.
So this was how I put together my DAY TO NIGHT OUTFIT. Tell me in comments below how would you like to be your Day to Night outfit.
