One More Night

Hello Glam & Sassy loves! Are any of you a night owl like me?  I am sooooo not a morning person.  I have to ease into my morning and I make it a point to not schedule my client meetings or events until at least 10 am.  This gives me ample time to play on my phone i.e. social media and emails (while still laying in bed), drink coffee, go to the gym, and then I am ready to work the next 8-10 hours. I am at my best later in the day and at night. So as you can imagine, I have some late nights working, as well as playing.  Here are some of my fave outfit ideas for your next night out!

Jump Right In

Jumpsuits are the perfect go-to.  They are an easy way to look put together AND  be comfortable. Sure, you can rock a one piece during the day, but glam it up with a sparkle belt and lots of gold accessories and you can make this your party outfit too.  Your covered up legs will thank you when you step out in the cold.  I love this one from Eliza J at Nordstrom.

Heavy Metal

Hot trend alert! Metallics! Nothing says I am here to party all night like the shine of a metallic dress. Even the color tones are champagne so of course you are meant to enjoy a glass (or two) while wearing it! Dresses are always my fave way to show up at an evening event and this DVF long sleeve style is perfect for Fall/Winter. We can go back to showing off our shoulder and biceps when they are tan again in the spring!

Leather Weather

A leather jacket is a must in any climate.  It is durable and looks just as good paired with jeans as it does your sexy LBD. The temps in LA get down into the 50s at night, and although that may not sound cold if you live in Canada, or the mid-west, or the northeast…ok just about anywhere BUT southern California, trust me, it is! Those nights, I love that I can throw on my black leather jacket over just about anything.  If you prefer, there are faux leather jackets that are just as fabulous, and less of a worry if you are in a crowded bar and just know you are going to get spilled on before your long night of fun is over.  If you are one the doing the spilling, be sure to Uber home. It’s the Glam & Sassy thing to do.

Work It Out

Gone are the days when we were of school age and summer was three months of being completely carefree. No schedules, no studying, and outfit decisions were based purely on the weather. I had my favorite pair of cut off jean shorts, a pink tank with a big rainbow on it, and (very) worn out kicks, and swear I wore it every week! In the present life of being a responsible adult, the warmer days and shorter nights do not mean we are on a perpetual vacation.  Most of us still get up and get dressed for work Monday thru Friday which can be challenging during the dog days of summer’s heat and humidity.  How do you keep cool while still looking stylish and professional, since, the last time I checked, our fave cut offs and pink tanks are frowned upon in the office. Try a few of these outfit ideas and maybe you’ll even get a raise by Labor Day.

Sharpen your Pencil: Much more sophisticated than its flouncy counterpart, the pencil skirt is the perfect choice for the office. With its slim cut and just below- the- knee length, you will stay cool AND be able to show off a little of that tan you worked so hard on over the weekend! Invest in a well constructed one like this style from Theory. Wear it with a crisp blouse tucked in, practical heels and a delicate necklace. This look is the new power suit! You’ll be so excited to wear it that you’ll be asking on Saturday…is it Monday yet???

Dress for Success: I just love dresses for summer! They are light! They are feminine! They are an instant outfit! Just slip it on, apply some Chanel mascara and lipgloss and head out the door! If you have read my blogs before (thank you for that BTW and if not, please go back and do so as you are really missing out!) you know that I am a big fan of the wrap dress.  It is seriously so flattering on everyone! Wrap dresses accentuate our waists and the jersey fabric is so comfy you will feel like you are not wearing anything at all! Check out this darling style I found at Bloomies from Diane von Furstenberg! After all, if you are going to wear a wrap,  you may as well wear the original!

Get a Leg Up: Pitching an important client? Interviewing for a new position? We all know that if you feel good about yourself, your performance will show it.  When you have to really bring it, put some time and effort into your outfit planning and select what is appropriate in your industry or in the position you WANT to have.  Feel fabulous in fuchsia? Then choose this pretty pink underpinning  from Trina Turk with your suit jacket.  Better in blue? Adorn yourself with these hues of the sea  accessories.  Whatever that look may be for you, wear with it confidence and go for the compliment! Those two things together are what make us Glam & Sassy!

Dawn till Dusk

It’s almost the end of summer but there is still time to enjoy it!  We jam pack our schedule with work, working out, errands, and a myriad of social activities, which can cause a girl a lot of outfit anxiety. The secret to fitting it all in fashionably, is to utilize the key pieces of this sizzling season.  Own these items and in some cases, more than one (because we all know having multiples is very exciting) and take the stress of out getting dressed!

White T: No, this isn’t a new hip hop artist.  It is, however, the always versatile, always summery,  white t-shirt and/or tank top .  These are the perfect layering pieces under a cute jacket or on their own with your fave jeans or shorts. Whether you go for the V-neck, crew, or scoop, is entirely up to you but I suggest having one of each.  White is best when it is bright and I like to purchase fresh ones every time summer finally rolls around.  This Modern V-Neck style from Gap is a great basic and is priced at just $16.95 so buying them every year isn’t as extravagant as it sounds.

Dress for Success: Look in your closet. Do you have a dress that you can easily slip on after the gym that is classic enough for the office but cute enough to wear out for happy hour or dinner?  If the answer is yes, then “yay!” and you can skip to the next item on this list.  If it is no or “I am not sure”, then check out this fabulous jersey knit wrap dress from Nordstrom.com . The print is very on trend and the fabric is exactly what you will need to take it from work to play, dawn till dusk.  Style with a nude shoe to elongate your luscious legs and be sure to choose a comfortable fit that will last as long as you do.

Short Stuff: When things start to heat up, the less clothing the better.  I am talking about temperatures here ladies…as in the ones on your iPhone 6 weather app. Ok, now that we are on the same page, having a crisp pair of tailored shorts is a nice alterative to wearing trousers to work when the sun is scorching hot.  I love the fabric and the length of the Vintage Twill Bermuda Short by Vince. Shorts are not only great for day, but can be easily dressed up for night as well.  Style with a casual button down and flats for daytime. At night, switch it up with a silky tunic and a long, lightweight necklace. Hey , when you look this Glam & Sassy, the more plans the better so fill up your calendar with confidence and have fun before summer is over!
