I had a personal triumph on Friday and just had to share. Yes, that’s right… I successfully navigated, in fact NEEDED, to transition from day to night! Now, I know what you are thinking: is that really a thing? I hear you! I didn’t think so either. Margaret Lyons and I have clearly been on the same page thus far. But Friday night I had a concert performance, and of course I had work during the day. Behold! A day-to-night opportunity was born.
For my orchestra concerts I need to wear all black, but at the office I prefer not to look like I am going to a funeral. Also I prefer not to wear evening wear to the office (for obvious reasons). My outfit for the evening consisted of a silky black top with a dramatic tie-waist, slim cigarette pants, a trim black blazer, and black heels. To day-ify it, I swapped the blazer for a medium wash denim jacket, and wore leopard loafers instead of the heels. My same pair of filigree earrings went from slightly bohemian to elegant with just a jacket change.
Virginia Margaret, there is a Santa Claus need for day-to-night outfits. I am living proof — AND I lived to tell the tale.
