Get ready for photo overload! Today, I bring you a day to night outfit. The day outfit is perfect for the office... and with an easy change you are ready for a happy hour or dinner out on the town.

The base of this outfit is my favorite olive pants with a simply flowy black top. I've added an oversized chunky pearl necklace... I love big pearls. This outfit can be made to fit any occasion with a few accessories and a minor makeup change.

First, for the office, I have super comfortable nude flats on. I found these buy one get one free at J.Crew Factory, so obviously I bought them in nude and black. These honestly feel like wearing slippers, the leather is so soft. The light color of these shoes softens the outfit a little bit, making it great for day time. I'm also carrying a classic black tote from Kate Spade from the "On Purpose" line - a line that's helping enable women in Rwanda to support themselves and their communities - love that. The beaded tassel details are a nice touch.

To transfer this classic business outfit to night time, as seen below, I've changed a few things. First, I've changed into a pair of black leather booties (I have them in brown too!). These are great for work or play, they're very comfortable and can definitely be worn with pants or a skirt. I also added my leather jacket to take this outfit to night. This jacket is a super supple leather that my parents gave to me as a gift a few years ago for Christmas - I highly recommend investing in a good quality leather jacket, it's definitely a lifetime piece. Lastly, I've added a dark lipstick (Revlon's Black Cherry, a makeup addict classic) to really add the drama. Gotta say this outfit made me feel bad ass, enjoy the photos ;)
