Outfit Transitions: Work, Play, Casual

Monday, September 1, 2014

Like most women, I am on a  budget. So I've found some creative ways of staying on trend while not breaking the bank. One important way is to find pieces that are versatile and work with several different outfits, like this black and white plaid checkered shirt that is PERFECT for fall. So I've decided to do a post where I show how to transition an outfit from work, play, and casual just by changing a few key pieces.

First up, the work outfit. I tied the shirt with a light pink midi skirt that I scored at Savers. I then dressed the outfit up with black pumps and a delicate necklace.

Midi skirt - Savers (no, seriously! Similar here)
Necklace - J.Crew
Shoes - Dolce Vita

Now to my night outfit! I kept the shirt, added a statement necklace under the collar, and paired it with a faux leather skirt. To complete the ensemble, I added some gold accessories, plus this awesome vintage mesh gold bag I picked up just the other day.

Faux leather skirt - Forever 21
Necklace - Anthropologie (found in stores)
Mesh bag - vintage (similar here)
Bracelet - vintage 
Tube rings - Etsy

To make the look more casual, I paired the skirt with a t shirt (with famous 90's super model's names on it!), and tied the plaid shirt around the waist. Then switched the heels out for gold cross front sandals, and I'm on my way!
