Hi loves!

I'm Kelly & I write a OC Fashion & Lifestyle
blog called Messy.Dirty.Hair.

The concept behind my blog is that I believe you can still be trendy & chic but natural at the same time. I don't wear makeup everyday or really that much at all & I only wash my hair once a week. I am all about embracing the imperfections in life & being happy with who you are. For Love of a Cupcake was one of the first blogs I read when I started blogging back in February so I was so excited to be sponsoring Amanda's fabulous blog this month!

So today I  have a fun post for you that I think it will really help a lot of you when it comes to day & night outfits.
Have you ever been out all day & then the day continues into the night but you're still wearing your day time clothes with nothing to change into to make the outfit a little more night time appropriate? Well today I am going to show you 3 simple outfits that can go from day to night with a few quick changes....& since this is a weekly subject on my blog & i like to show you that I actually do embrace the mess. In these pictures I am on day 5 of no washing or even brushing my hair.....

............................................................

So here we have a typical day time outfit...destroyed jeans, flip flops & a white tank...pretty plain Jane, yet one of my favorite outfits to wear....perfect for a day at the mall or a walk on the beach....so let's take this simple day time outfit & give it a night time feel...
Jeans: Hudson :: Flip flops: Tory Burch
Watch: Marc by Marc :: Sunglasses: Fendi :: Purse: Gucci

 Still wearing the exact same jeans & tank top all I did to spice the outfit up was add a black blazer, some heels & a clutch...perfect for a date night....just a few certain items can change the whole dynamic of an outfit...plus I feel adding black to anything will dress it up
Heels: Steve Madden :: Blazer: BP Nordstrom :: Clutch: Tory Burch
............................................................

This dress is defiantly more of a dressier look but I toned it down with some flat sandals & added a jean jacket...the dress is a little short so adding the leggings also tones it down...but lets dress it up by taking away a few things....

Dress: Free People :: Jean Jacket: BP Nordstrom
Gladiators: MIA :: Purse: Tory Burch

 So I lost the jacket & the leggings so the dress will be a short mini again, added some short boots, a Chanel crossover....& you're ready for a night out on the town.


Boots: Sam Eledman :: Purse: Chanel :: Glasses: Chanel
............................................................
Another casual outfit, very simple....hair up, jeans, a tank, & some canvas shoes...nothing to flashy, but perfect for a day of running errands....also if you currently don't own a pair of TOMS please invest in a pair asap...they are SO comfortable & light weight, you will never want to take them off. Plus when you buy a pair they give a pair of shoes to a child in need..... so here we go again day to night...

Jeans: Citizens of Humanity :: Striped Tank: BP Nordstrom :: Shoes: TOMS



Still wearing the exact same jeans & tank all I did was take my hair down & pulled the front back. I added a statement necklace & some bangles. Some high black boots & a Patent Leather purse for some extra shine.....& you're ready for a night out at a concert or dinner with friends.

 Boots: Jessica Simpson :: Necklace: Express
Bracelets: Nordstrom Jewelry :: Purse: Tory Burch

As you can see I wear the same white tank top with everything. Never underestimate the power of a white tank. Again, nothing much was really changed with any of these outfits, I didn't have to take anything off to make it more night appropriate...with just a few accessory changes you can literally change anything from day to night. But always remember less is more. I hope these quick day to night changes will help you with your outfits & inspire you to change up your day time looks. Thanks so much Amanda for having me & remember to always embrace the mess. Hope to see you around Messy.Dirty.Hair.
