This passed weekend when seeing a group of my friends, the one thing that became apparent to me is that we all lead busy and chaotic lives. Whether it’s motherhood, juggling a blog and job, being a fulltime student – or a even more wild combination of all of those things, we all feel the struggle of getting everything we want accomplished during our day.
The truth is, leading busy lives means that we need to make the little things work for us. That means our style, makeup, and even skincare routines need to be efficient and nearly mindless. We need to be able to create great looks that are comfortable, practical, and stylish without much thought, time, or effort. Today, in honor of all you wonderfully busy, responsible, getting things done and making things happen ladies, I am sharing with you an outfit with Swimco‘s COVER ME Linea Draped Short Dress that is A) easy, B) comfortable, and C) will take you from day to night without a cinch.
When you wear a dress like this (which has a deep v neck, and a lower back) during the day time, the key to making it look and feel appropriate is layering. Covering your shoulders and back with a cardigan, or shell jacket is a great way to make this look more toned down and errand-ready.
During the evening, you can shed a few layers – show off those shoulders, and embrace the lower back. I mean, for a date night look this COVER ME Linea Draped short dress pretty much has it all!
Change your Shoes
During the day, I am always running around and doing errands – and that means, I need shoes that allow me to be comfortable on my feet. What I am saying is, during the day I wear outfits with flats in order to acommodate my lifestyle and schedule. At night though, if I want to kick my style up a notch or two, than I’ll swap my favourite flats for some show stopper heels. High heels instantly elevate a outfit and add a bit of sass to it. This dress has all the attitude it really needs (I mean, that high-low hemline is awe-worthy!), but why not have a little fun with your date night style by rocking a great pair of heels?
Add on a Bold Lip Colour or Dramatic Eye
By simply changing your makeup, you can alter the vibe of an entire look. If you’re wanting to be daring, try a dark lip (it’s especially great during the fall and winter months), or create a more sultry look with a smokey eye makeup look.
