This is one of the outfits that I wore out to dinner with my husband during our trip to Florida. I apologize for the grainy photo-the sun had already set and of course the hotel room had only lamps instead of overhead lighting!
Yes, you can wear brights and even pastels for evening! To make light and bright work at night, focus on pairing it with a darker neutral (like the shorts) and heavier on the jewelry than you would for day. I also wore darker makeup to make the look more appropriate for evening-brown smoky eyes and mauve lipstick.
Ivory Blazer-Levi Brand that I bought off of Ebay
Toffee-colored silk shorts-Target
Gold thong flats-Wal-mart
Tank-Calypso St. Barth for Target
Turquoise jewelry-Beamon Baubles
Clutch-Target (It's actually a makeup bag....shhhh don't tell)
I had a blast getting to plan outfits for the trip-so many of my days are spent solely in my pj's and sweats, waiting to get my showers in after the G baby has gone to bed for the night!! Here's a quick pic of us before we went out! Look for more soon!
