Cobalt and Floral Occasions

Typically, when I see many of my day-to-night outfits they are in solid colours, or with layers, and even in the form of a Little Black Dress. But, this time, I wanted to mix things up. I needed a complete outfit that would be appropriate for a presentation as well as cocktail hour and late-night dinner plans.

Versatility and extreme comfort was going to be essential in the style decision, because it was a day that I could not be hindered by heaps of things to carry or assemble (style-wise).
I thought this print was perfect—it has a bold and electric cobalt colouring, yet also a silhouette flattering enough to work for the office and a night on the town. Adding a blazer to this dress also gave me the option for daytime, because I am often cold inside the workspace, hence my scarf obsession. However, not one scarf was required for this ensemble.

Fortunately, this was a dress that needn’t many accessories; therefore, all I added was earrings to complete this look. When you have a long day scheduled ahead, do you have favourite styles that are easy to transform to night? 
What do you think of my day-to-night look?

Special thanks to everyone for your lovely responses on my last post, I ended up using both the chocolates and mini-grooming tools inside the moustache boxes.

*Lastly, I am in the process of shifting several things around, both professionally and personally, including getting caught up with blogs, etc. But, I do have a few special things to share with you very soon. Do bear with me, check out Bloglovin’ and Instagram (see below). I will make my way to reading your lovely spaces soon. 
The goods: Floral printed dress, and Insect drop earrings-c/o Oasap, Heels-Seychelles.

  1. Dear Madison, I get you well, when it comes to day to night outfits, Im the same, always choose something in black, a lbd first. But you did so well to dare with colors and try something printed even for night, that dress is super cute and flatters you, looking gorgeous!:) I like the earrings too. Have a nice week you too, baci! xo

  22. This print and the color alone are just fab. Great choice for versatility, just adding make-up or other shoes will do the trick.

    Liebe Madison, wie wunderschön Du in Deinem tollen Kleid aussiehst! Mir gefällt die Länge, der Schnitt und das Muster so gut an Dir <3 Ich muss ganz selten mein Outfit vom Tag in ein Abendoutfit umstylen, da ich zwar jeden Wochentag arbeite, aber danach nur ganz selten ausgehe :) Ich wünsche Dir einen tollen Start ins Wochenende!

    Alles Liebe von Rena
