From day into night

A woman’s dress should be a like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.—Sophia Loren

I’ve always been fascinated by the day-to-night concept. Never mind the fact that I usually go home and change after work if I’m going out again. I just like the image of a stylish, always-on-the-go woman changing a few elements of an outfit and being ready for that “after work” experience.

So here I was with a normal work day ahead of me and then a reception in the evening. This is one of my favourite dresses. I got it at 50 per cent off and it fits like a dream plus it came with the belt.

Usually I like a pop of colour but I kept this outfit neutral.

During the day I kept it simple with earrings and the animal print bangle. The bangle came off in the evening and I put on the gold and pearl necklace (which I love so much that I plan to dedicate a whole post to it) and a locally-made spiral ring.

Oh and when I looked at these pics I absolutely loved the way the textures and patterns on my belt, bag handle and bangle looked. Let’s pretend I planned it that way.:)
