Happy Friday! Keeping it short today since it is really late as I'm writing this. I'm ready for summer and I'm sure you guys are also.  

One of my favorite things about summer is hanging out at the neighborhood festivals, which always start with brunch with friends before wandering around to eat more food (funnel cake!), see great art from local vendors, and do some fun people watching.  Inevitably, because I suffer from extreme FOMO (fear of missing out), I'm usually end up rushing from the festival to dinner, so I need an outfit that transitions easily from day to night.

Since I practically live in my car, I always have several pairs of shoes and a few blazers/scarfs in my car to dress up (or down) an outfit.  I'm so embarrassed when I have to give someone a ride, but the outfit options come in very handy when I'm running late and don't have time to go home (90% of the time...).  It is amazing how throwing on a blazer and a pair of heels (or wedges in this case) can transform an outfit!

What are some of your tricks to transition from day to night?

Oh well, I guess I didn't really keep it short.  Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms and moms-to-be!!

  1. Usually for going from day to night, I carry some accessories and a different pair of shoes. And depending on the weather a jacket/cardigan. Works out for me :).

  4. Love this look, Nicole!!!! I'm doing black and white today, too! Haha. Obsessing over those sandals... I really want them, but I feel like I'm too short to pull them off. How tall are you? I'll have to go try them on. Great post, love.

    1. I'm only 5'2. I got the gold which I think are easier to pull off since they don't cut you off as much. Thanks!

  6. I too rely on scarves, a switch of shoes, jackets and jewelry to change up the look of an outfit. Both of those shoes are awesome. I don't know that I could pull off those tall gladiators though.

    Happy Mother's Day to your mom. She will enjoy Montreal - it is an awesome city.
