Hi! Can you believe it? A new blog post! As you can probably imagine I’ve had my hands a little full (in the best way) since giving birth a few weeks ago. Mila is doing so good and my husband and I are having so much fun being with her all day every day. It’s seriously been the best. Even with hardly any sleep and going through a rough recovery, I have loved every second with her.
CASUAL DAY TO NIGHT STYLE
I am already learning the importance of comfort and simplicity when getting dressed as a new mom. While I haven’t made it out to happy hour just yet, I know a simple outfit like this oversized sweater and faux leather leggings that can take me from casual day to night style will be worn on the regular. So how exactly do you go from working at the coffee shop or running errands to looking appropriate for cocktails with the girls? It’s simple…
JUST SWAP YOUR SHOES!
Yes, it’s all about the shoes. It still amazes me how easy it is to change up an outfit by putting on a different pair of shoes. When shopping for shoes I always look at Nordstrom. Their selection is HUGE and I love that they carry such a range in price points. Both pairs of shoes in today’s post are under $150 and both pairs come in multiple colors! If you follow my Instagram-Stories you probably remember seeing how obsessed I was with both pairs! Scroll down to see how I go from running errands in comfortable faux-fur slip-on sneakers to happy hour-ready in red hot booties and why I love each pair!
FAUX FUR SLIP-ON SNEAKERS
First I need to make a confession: I love flats but they don’t love me back. I have always felt like most flats don’t look right on me or I couldn’t wear them because they didn’t have enough support (I have a pretty bad back). And then this pair came along and changed everything. These faux fur slip-on sneakers are not only super cute but extremely comfortable! I feel like they will match everything and they’re already becoming my go-to shoes to put on everyday.
I wear leggings A LOT throughout fall and winter and I feel like these slides go with them perfectly. By the way if you do not own a pair of these faux leather SPANX leggings, you’re missing out. While they are a little pricier, they are so worth it because they smooth everything out and really suck you in at the waist. You can get them here. As for my slides they come in multiple colors and styles which I linked above. This is my first time buying this brand and it’s safe to say I’m hooked! I love the faux fur lining on the pair I’m wearing (come in multiple colors) but click through to see their other similar styles!
RED HOT BOOTIES
In order to take this look from running errands to sipping cocktails, all I did was lose the slip-ons and stepped into these red hot booties. Even the simplest sweater and leggings outfit can look elevated with a great pair of heels. I threw my hair in a pony tail and added a pair of tassel statement earrings (so good for the holidays!) as well.
I love red and the red boot is a must-wear trend right now. I have always been a fan of a good ankle bootie but these are next level. They are the perfect heel, perfect toe, perfect color… I really am obsessed. Whether you want to try the red boot trend or just need a classic black pair, I highly recommend this style and linked a few of the color options below! Scroll down to shop my full outfit details (sweater is only $59!)!
Let me know if you have any questions about this casual day to night style and stay tuned for more new posts!
