The Day to Night: Jean Mini Skirt Edition

March 16, 2018

¡Hola! Today we begin a new series where we tackle how to make one item of our wardrobe work for both day and night looks. First up in this series: the jean/denim mini skirt. I know most of us owned one way back in the late 90's-early 2000's and they are back! I personally love the one I own, and its the one I will use as a base for both looks, because it really wraps around your bum due to its stretchy material making it very flattering! I hope you enjoy both looks and feel inspired! 

No. 2 Mejuri Raw Hoops ($69) (or get a whole hoops set for $3.90 here!)
No. 4 Espadrille Platform Wedge Sandal ($79.95) (similar & cheaper here!)

A denim mini skirt can appear very edgy so pairing it with a romantic top like this one helps to keep it light and fresh for daytime. Pair it with simple jewelry (hoops are all the rage again!) and spring inspired pieces such as these espadrille platform wedge sandals and this adorable straw bag!

No. 1 Zara Camisole Top ($35.90) (cheaper here!)

Take your skirt into night with a simple change of top and accessories. A sexy lace camisole top is perfect for date night. I've been loving playing with layered necklaces lately and I'm absolutely in love with both of these from Alex and Ani! Complete the look with a pair of comfortable strappy heels and a clutch that can also work crossbody so you can dance the night away!

Which was your favorite: day or night? What item would you like to see next in this series? Let me know below!

Con amor,
