Well I got my car back! She has been duct taped back together for a few more months of jolly good joy rides and such. Actually on the way home she was driving pretty well but we shall see how long that lasts. I think it’s the uncertainty that bothers me, especially when it comes to having wheels. Otherwise I’m not really a “planner” by nature, but I don’t want to be totally unprepared either. Somewhere is the middle you will find my happy place… along with jewelry, handbags, gummy bears and sunshine haha. I like seeing where the world takes us and I think if you have everything too planned out then you may miss opportunities and individual growth which is part of what makes life so special! Of course no one wants life to suck… duh, but you’ll never watch a movie rooting for the heroine when her life is purely perfect… snoozefest, just sayin. So I’ll try to prepare myself, roll the dice and run headfirst into the storm… abet with a helmet 😉

As I prattle on this leads me to today’s post. I’m sharing a 2 for 1 with you today because I think this is a great day to night choice and is actually a great look for lots of occasions, whatever the world has in store for you. Since tomorrow is Friday and many of you may go out directly from work this may be a great option and something that’s a little different. I wore this to the office with the sweater and belt to provide some structure but I wanted to kept the sweater print and belt color fun. This way you’re all covered up but can still convey a relaxed feel. You’d think I was approachable, right? My hair is up to keep it more professional but allows the earrings to be seen which play well with the belt and I kept the necklace rather delicate. After work you are all set for a dinner, garden party, rooftop cocktails or just meeting up with friends. Just switch out the purse, remove the belt/sweater and you’re good to go! I let my hair down too but do whatever works for you! These sandals are great too because they’re comfortable for all day wear, no matter where you end up!

Are day to night looks convenient for your life? Do you like this combination? Could or would you wear this to work any day of the week or maybe only on a more casual day? Mr. T and I took these photo’s in our back yard because it was such a beautiful day. This dress is fun to “play” in and I think every woman should have a dress that makes them want to twirl around like a little girl! I happened to look up while taking the pictures to see we had lemon and lime trees… Who knew?! Just a small daily surprise but I’ll take that over more car problems. For now I’ll give my personal growth a break and appreciate the growth of my lemon trees instead 😉

      What a fabulous dress! The color and cut look so pretty on you! Yes, working a 9 to 5 job, I’m always looking for pieces that can take me from day to night. I try to buy items that I can wear in at least 2 different ways and get lots of use out of. This dress is perfect for that.

        Thanks Jenny! I agree. Obviously when I (and I’m sure you too) buy something it’s because I like it and want to get a lot of use out of it. I was looking to change up a day to night look and this has a slight boho feel but not so much that it’d be inappropriate for work. Plus it’s comfortable for a long day 🙂

    3. LOVE the dress with the cardi, belt, and jewelry.

      So does this mean you don’t have to hang around waiting for cabs anymore? Because that sounded like a nightmare!

        Thanks Kate! This dress is so comfortable it’s ridiculous. Unfortunately there may still be cabs in my future… grrrrrr
