Day to Evening Dresses

I love a versatile wardrobe, it makes dressing day to day so much easier, and what is easier to thrown on then some cute dresses?! Lyst has some of the perfect day to night dresses, that are for sure to come in handy when you’re in a pickle on what to wear.

Today I’ve chosen some of my favorite looks to take you straight from work to dinner with your hot date, or drinks with the girls.

Work Look and A Hot Date

These are the perfect dresses to take you from work to your hot sushi date. Throw on a flattering jacket and some closed toed shoes for a sophisticated work day look. And ditch the jacket and swap out your shoes for some hot pumps or thigh high boots to make these the perfect date night looks. [SHOP HERE]

 

Work Look and Drinks With the Girls

A girls night out calls for that trendy, cute dress you’ve been dying to break out of the closet. Bring a light sweater, some flats to get you through the work day and maybe even throw your hair up in a ponytail to keep it out of your face and make it a little more casual look. To take this from day to night, toss the flats for you favorite new booties or wedges, let your hair loose and throw on your favorite lipstick! [SHOP HERE]

 

Just Because it’s Fall!

I had to throw in a few other sleeved dresses from Lyst that I am obsessing over! The season’s are changing, meaning it’s time for some new pieces! [SHOP HERE]

For The Romantically Challanged Man

Valentine’s day is quickly approaching, and I bet there are some guys out there who are stressing out about what to get their special someone. It always seems so obvious and easy to think of dates and gift ideas, but for some reason guys just can never get it.

That’s why the ladies over at Man Crates have challenged me to create a mini wishlist to help the romantically challenged man this holiday.

  1. If you are looking to really impress a girl: Homemade baked goodies and flowers

If you are looking to make a really good impression on your special someone, bake! Trust me, if a guy goes out of his way to turn the heat up in the kitchen for his girl, he wont be dissapointed with the outcome. It doesn’t have to be anything intricate, simple chocolate chip cookies would do. Or you could even go a step further, and bake her favorite goodie! Don’t forget to throw in some flowers, because a girl is always expecting flowers on Valentine’s day. (Mine would definitely have to be white chocolate chip cookies, yummm) Toasted-Coconut-White-Chocolate-Chip-Cookies-1

2. For the newbies: Her favorite candies and flowers

It’s so cliche, I know. But if you were lucky enough to find a new someone right before Valentine’s Day, it’s better to play it safe with good ole fashioned candy and flowers. Pick a cute basket and fill it with all her favorite candies! Of course you must add in some flowers. Try to avoid your average chocolates, like hershey bars and kisses. Buying your chocolate from an actual chocolate place is much more thoughtful and delicious.

One of my favorite gifts was a basket filled with every kind of white chocolate from my local chocolate store. I was in literal white chocolate heaven.

3. For the Valentine’s veteran: Something New

So you and your girl have been together for a while and you’re stuck on what to get her? Thinking of a spontaneous and different date night will definitely make her and you happy! Ditch that same Italian restaurant you go to once a month and plan a fun picnic, or camping trip.

If you really want to go all out travel to a romantic new spot and treat yourselves to a couples spa day. Throw in some flowers and chocolates to make her feel extra special, and this Valentine’s Day will be one for the books.

 

What is your most memorable Valentine’s Day gift?

Friday is not only one of the best days of the week because it means the weekend is here, but for a lot of us it’s the day we get paid!! Yayy, and now that we have officially started Fall, it is time to update that wardrobe and get some stylish Fall pieces.

Lately, the trend seems to be anything that is laced or tied up, and I am loving it! So today I have searched some of my favorite online shops and found their cutest lace up clothes and fall must haves! If you are looking to spend some of that moolah you’ve made, then look no further! (Click on the images to shop the exact look)
