SO… I have recently realized that the majority of my closet is denim, white t-shirts, and going out (party) dresses. The first two in that category make an easy everyday outfit but why leave out those party dresses? For this blog post, I wanted to style a look that acts as kind of a guide on how to wear you going out dresses in the daytime and for everyday wear.
For this outfit, I chose my absolute favorite, go-to party dress I own. It’s tight, bold, and stretchy (therefore comfortable and can be shared with multiple friends). ALSO- I think I only paid a whopping $9 for it on Missguided!
To make this sexy dress more daytime, or even business, appropriate, I paired it underneath a white button up blouse giving it a more sophisticated aesthetic. However, to keep it fun and moving from day to night, I paired it with a funky pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
This little trick can be done with almost any party dress, whether you wear something underneath, throw on a blazer or jacket, or pull a skirt over the bottom half. Don’t be afraid to get creative here!

Happy Saturday! I am obsessed with these photos shot by photographer and fellow fashion blogger Abby Liudahl! I have a whole folder of drafted blog posts and this was the last in line but definitely one of my favorites so I sped up the process and posted it today!
This outfit is simple yet whimsical and can be worn all day long. It’s extremely comfortable and put together with a bohemian flare. The white blouse makes it sophisticated while the snakeskin heels and vintage gold coin earrings keep it fun and youthful.
Hope you enjoy these photos!

Statement pants have been an obsession of mine probably since I bought my first pair of floral culottes from Zara around three years ago. A friend of mine was doing a closet clean out and I honestly could not understand why anyone would want to rid of these paisley kick-flare leg pants but I swiped them up in a heartbeat.
These funky pants can definitely be worn in a business setting with the paired blazer but, for keeping my style true to myself, I wanted to make them into a “professional going out piece.” I styled a super cropped top from Forever 21 revealing my waist and threw a white blazer over it to keep the look chic, and semi-appropriate.
I had a lot of fun shooting this look and want to wear it in real life once it’s not scorching hot in Kansas City. Great transition look from dinner to night on the town.

This night, we spent Father’s Day going to see The King & I at Starlight Theater in Kansas City, Missouri. This venue is an outside stage so it was pretty hot but cooled off a little bit into the show (thank goodness). It was an outstanding performance and this is what I wore!
