Jeans :: From Day to Night


As my go-to, I can be found in jeans 80% of the time. They exude all that I strive for my personal style to reflect: comfortable & versatile yet chic & classic. The best part about jeans is that their look can be altered depending on what you pair them with.

While perusing the city this weekend with my family, I needed to wear an outfit that was practical for walking around all day. However, I knew I would be going out later with friends, so I wanted to make sure my outfit could quickly and easily be transformed from day to night. 

My daytime look included a jean top from J-Crew (Oye - where was my iron?), a multi-strand necklace + simple gold earrings, black belt & tall black boots. 





My outfit was transformed to "night" within 5 minutes. I let down my bun, put on some lipstick, threw on a blouse and swapped my black boots for tan ankle-boots (Both from Francesca's).




...And there you have it! Jeans, from day to night. 

PS -- how perfectly fall + lovely is this Chicago scene?

  1. What a cute outfit change! I'm also a huge jean lover and I totally agree that a quick top change and some new makeup can take you to the next level.

  3. Now that I work a 9-5er, I can't wear jeans as often as I'd like! They are perfect for the day to night transition for sure1

  9. I love that jeans are so easy to dress up or down. Once you find a good pair, you can make a zillion outfits! These outfits are so cute–I love the chambray-on-denim combo!

  10. Gorgeous! I just came across your blog and I love it.

    I have to say, I love how you pulled off the denim top with your jeans. I have been curious how to make that work, thinking it looks like TOO much denim in one outfit... but you pulled it off perfectly!

  21. I could live in my jeans. And I like how versatile they are. You're totally right - sometimes, just a bit of color on the lips is all you need to heighten the look. Love your necklace!
