Reader Request: Outfit Ideas for Weekday Night Event

I got asked for some outfit ideas from a reader and fellow blogger, Sara.  She's attending a blogger award event on a weeknight in a trendy part of town (a renovated warehouse to be exact - how cool) and I gladly obliged to help!  Sara - hope something like one of these will work!

Colored Denim & Polka Dots


Two popular trends for sure - but a great pair of fitted denim in a fun color (like these mint ones from The Limited) with a patterned blouse (J.Crew polka dot popover, but could easily be a striped or another blouse) with a contrasting jacket, or a tuxedo one would be great for an award event.  Add some sparkle with these DV by Dolce Vita heels (I want) and a silver paved bracelet by Derng.

Bold Colors & Bare Legs


Well, the weather is getting warmer after all, so a bold colored dress, accessories and heels for a color-blocked look.
Yellow Dress + Mint Clutch + Orange Heels, with simple like these pretty mint studs
Orange Dress + Hot Pink Bag + Nude Heels with a necklace in a similar color hue
Green Dress + Aqua Necklace & Clutch, pair with yellow, pink, nude, etc heels

Long & Flowy




Maxis are in full effect this spring and perfect to curb a night chill. A fun and subtly sheer maxi skirt paired with a print belt (like snakeskin or leopard) and the ever-versatile chambray shirt tucked in.  This is also the perfect length skirt to get away with wearing (cute) flats if you aren't craving the height (and want to be more comfortable standing a lot). Top with some sparkle & mixed metal and this look can really work for many occasions.


Alternatively, wear a maxi dress and bright accessories (sandals, belt and bauble).

Hope these outfit ideas help you out Sara, and give the rest of you weekday event ideas - I'm sure you could put something similar together from your own closet!
