From Day to Night!

*** No outfit of the week post for me today... I'm back to my old ways of not caring about what I'm wearing.  I'm currently sitting at work wearing a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes :( Hopefully I'll be motivated again next week. So for now, I thought I would post about a fashion idea I just don't get.***

I've alluded to this before, but does anyone else read way to many a lot of Women's magazines? For some reason I just can't get enough.  

Lately, I've noticed a specific type of article. One called "From Day... To Night!" Or something like that. These always irk me. The usually read something like this:

Take your hard-working day outfit straight to an evening extravaganza. Just add a few simple accessories and you'll go from "professional" to "party."

And the article is accompanied with a picture like this:

Anyway, every time I read something like this I think, "where do people go after work?" I mean, who has formal events on a weeknight?! And if you do, don't you have enough time to run home and change?! And since when did meeting friends for dinner in your "work clothes" turn into such a fashion faux pas? Oh my gosh, Ashley is still wearing what she wore to work. I'm completely mortified to be seen with her because she looks like an adult. I really just don't understand. Is it because I live in Oklahoma and I think jeans are a perfectly acceptable thing to wear to dinner?

But, I'll be honest here. When I leave work I put on my "night" outfit too. You know, like this:

Except, the day outfit isn't as cute and my night outfit isn't as... wait, OK, it's just like that. I wear my "night outfit" for lots of evening extravaganzas: dinner-cooking, TV watching and house cleaning.

  3. This post is so true! I come home from work and put on my pjs almost every night! And if I do end up going anywhere I either wear the same outfit or switch from work pants to jeans.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
