Transforming outfits from day to night is one of the most useful ways for working women (and especially for working moms) to look put together. I don’t stay out late much, especially on weekdays, because towards the end of the day I get so tired that I just want to crash into bed. When evening plans come up, though, I look forward to them and promise myself that once I get home from work, I’ll take extra time to relax, put makeup on, and dress up. But who am I kidding, once I get home, something ALWAYS comes up! I am lucky if I get five minutes to fix myself up and get out of the house, frustrated that I didn’t have ‘me time’ again. So after a few failed attempts of pamper time, on the days I plan outings for the evening, I wear outfits that I can take from day to night. The key is to wear something bright or an LBD and use accessories to tone down the look for the day and dress it up for the night.
Now, I love these J.Crew Teddie cropped pants for their a bit different silhouette and versatility. They are perfect for work, for a happy hour, for a night out, and for a weekend stroll. Made of a stretchy fabric blend, the pants hug hips and thighs and look and feel very comfortable, feminine, and flattering on every body type. I love how the pants’ kick out cropped leg looks sexy with nude heels. I bought the pants in blue (a welcomed departure from black hehehe), and paired them with a white jacket, a bright yellow top, and a red bag, a perfect combo for Mondays!
