Q: “Can you recommend an outfit that works well during a summer day and can easily transition into a cool outfit at night?! Thanks!”

–  Instagram user Shelley G @elleyelectrix

A: I love taking looks from day to night. The least amount of effort, the better especially in California where going out means going from the beach to dinner and then wherever the night takes you. My key ingredients to taking a day look into the night is simple; add layers of jewelry, a clutch, sling on those high heels or wedges (replacing the flat sandals you wore to the beach) and add a layer to what you were wearing. In my case I chose a crochet kimono, which is perfect for summer nights out but a simple jean jacket or blazer would work just as well.

Kiara’s day look includes this adorable chevron print romper, red sandals and a geometric print backpack that gives off an easy day at the beach vibe.



She added a stunning crochet kimono over the same romper to upgrade the look for a night out. Black patent wedges and an embellished clutch are easy swaps for the daytime sandals and backpack.
