As a teenager, I pictured being one of those rom-com-worthy adults who has so much going on in life that they go straight from the office to a happy hour with the gals and then on to a date. Of course, in this fast-paced life I imagined, I also changed up my whole look effortlessly in only a few minutes. Now, as an adult making this a reality, I use only key shoes and accessories when I want to go from day to night in a flash. To make this work for you, read on for inspiration on how you can pick just the right pieces to have on hand!
I’m a dresses gal through and through, so let’s look at how I wore and accessorized my Willow Dress from morning to night in a single day!
The Willow Dress is a sustainable and ethically made dress, designed in the US and made fairly in India using either cotton or modal. The unique block print designs come in 8 beautiful colors and patterns:
My personal color pick is the Rooney Purple, and my oh my, do I love it! To kick off my day, I ran errands in the morning, opting for the Face Line Dad Hat (gotta protect the skin!) and Felipa Belt Bag, as I prefer to pack lightly when I’m on the go - just my keys, wallet, phone, and hand sanitizer.
I really leaned into the casual fit by adding the Casual Sock and a comfy pair of sneakers. When I first left in the morning, it was chilly out, so the Jasmine Cardigan kept me warm, but as the temperature climbed, I shed the layer.
To jazz up the look for date night, I applied some dramatic eyeliner, swapped the sneakers for mules (check out The Camila!), and switched the hat out to show off the lightweight, yet bold Lustre Earrings! I also untied the neckline of the Willow Dress for a more daring evening look and added the simple Pearl Choker Necklace.
Voila! An easy look for both day and night. Want more Willow Dress looks? Check out how I styled it 5 different ways:
