Day to night

Day to night

One of my great discoveries in 2014 is Numari.  Previously, to get a dress that fit, I would either have to order size tall and get it tailored or make it myself.  For Numari, you send an extensive list of measurements, and they make a dress for you in about three weeks.

I found out about them after reading about their company in Capitol File.  They focus on day-to-night career wear, which is exactly what I need regularly.  The one above is the second dress I’ve ordered from them.

For day: I love this H&M blazer with puff sleeves, but any basic black blazer would work. For this outfit, I like the fact that I can wear the blazer to a meeting, and then take it off if I’m running up and down stairs.  Also, it’s very easy to just throw on a dress at the beginning of the day.  All in all, it’s not a super-inspiring work outfit, but the fact that the dress fits makes it amazing.  If I was feeling slightly more festive, I might add this necklace from Ann Taylor.

For evening: Evening requires a little more glitz, hence the necklace (which would also be daytime appropriate), ring, and purse.  Almost any necklace would go with this dress, but I especially like this strand necklace and bib necklace from Bauble Bar.  For shoes, I could also go for this pump with a gold strip on the toe or this slingback.

Long sleeve dresses are great for spring, when it’s still a little cool outside, but the AC may be making it cool inside as well.

I have this dress from Cache, and I wouldn’t wear it with pearl earrings because I think it’s too much with the gold at the neckline.  This lovely David Meister dress is one sale right now, and I also like this Felicity & Coco dress from Nordstrom, which is a little more edgy.

This suit from H&M ended up fitting me perfectly, no tailoring required.  The pair of nude pumps I own is more of a basic pump with no ankle strap, but I liked how this one looked with the set.  Because I’m always on my motorcycle, I rarely use a real purse, but if I did, I’d add a beige/nude leather one to match the shoes.  Maybe something like this D&G bag.

This is a cozy outfit to wear to work on a cold day.  The Lo & Sons bag is my absolute favorite – I’ve had it for over a year now, used it heavily, and it still looks brand new.  It’s also great for travel.
