HOW TO TRANSITION OUTFIT FROM DAY TO NIGHT WITH STYLE

Collaboration with Urban Gilt.

DAY

I'm always more productive on days I'm wearing an outfit that makes me feel confident and chic. Minimal and sharp is my go-to look. Black and white leaves no room for colorful distractions, helping me stay focused. A luxe tee under a sophisticated blazer is one way I add a casual flare to my usual work day outfit. The Urban Gilt Draycott White Tee makes me reminisce of my Nine Inch Nails music addiction, bringing out my rebellious side. Nevertheless, with this combination I feel badass and can still show up to a meeting where everybody knows I mean business. Coffee also helps keep the motivation going. I grab my oat milk latte at Portola Coffee (aka my remote office) and slay away. The Exec Handbag makes it easy to carry all my work essentials wherever I need them. It's sturdy like a briefcase to carry my MacBook and planner, but also stylish and sleek as a handbag. I love what I do, and the day goes by fast.

FROM WORKING HARD BY DAY TO HARDLY WORKING BY NIGHT

NIGHT

In California, spring or summer, the weather and the vibes don’t change. But going out for happy hour with a friend or co-work rebel, calls for a change in look. I’ll keep my Urban Gilt Tee because they are designed so you’re ready for anything — Moscow Mule or Prosecco, shaken or stirred — but trade my Exec Handbag and blazer for The Luxe Clutch and faux-leather moto jacket. And then of course I’ll be stepping into a black faux-leather skirt and strap heels. I’m all set and head over to Central Bar, ready to unwind and be present. More than acting the part, rocking a sexy and edgy look for the night draws a balance between boss and babe, rebel and chameleon — never losing touch with either side.
