Why hello lovely beautiful people! I hope you are reading this with a smile on your face realizing that it is FRIYAY! Style hacks are key for any of us on-the-goers. So alas, today I come to you with a fun day to night look, perfect for daytime Friday on the go + then scooting right into the evening festivities.
Versatility is SO KEY, am I right friends? This is why I mainly go with dresses, because they are ONE piece + often you can transform them into a completely new look! This specific dress by Maggy London looks like it would be solely made for a fancy night out…but alas that is where I come in + say, why not turn your fancy dress into casual daytime too? Try belting it. Add some more casual accessories like a HAT. Change your shoes to be a casual sandal…. + voilà!
In addition to talking about day to night versatility, I want to get really REAL with you loves. Many days I am constantly on the go. I am sure that many of you reading this can relate to being pulled in many different directions. All. The. Time. So, though I absolutely LOVE the idea of versatility, + going from day to night, this brings up the concept of balance. I want to encourage you to truly check in with yourself.
Do you feel well balanced? Do you feel like you are overcommitting yourself which turns into people pleasing? Do you get anxious when you cannot go to everything because there are simply not enough hours in the day? Raise your HAND if that is you [I am raising mine right now!]
This happens quite frequently, especially in the American culture for some reason. So while it is so necessary to be versatile [because that will save us precious time in the long run!], it is also just as necessary to recognize our boundaries + refuse to overcommit for the sake of our own personal well being. Do you agree?
I would love to encourage you to focus on the following words. Don’t just glance over them. Read them. Let them sink in. Meditate on them + what they mean to YOU.
Okay loves, that is enough of my spiel for today… I think you hear what I am saying! I LOVE being versatile + a little black dress from day to night thrills me… two outfits in one? Heck yes!! ALSO just make sure you are not overcommitting yourself in the process, k?
