Transitional Style: How To Make Your Outfit Work All Day

Class -> Errands -> Dinner

Heading from a workout to running errands, straight to dinner is a common cycle for most of us. Functional, stylish and sometimes unexpected layers are the key to making these outfit transitions seamless.

I road-tested a base outfit (Free People Movement’s Flashdance Crop Top and Michi Barre Leggings) in an intense 2/3 yoga class. I packed a few items in my roomy purse (no extra gym bag as I live in NYC and consolidation is key) to add on for the rest of my Sunday (shopping in Soho, dinner at Pietro Nolita).  I wore my favorite pair of moto boots from Miz Mooz, the Sargent, from day to evening with all of my outfits.

Class: Free People Movement Flashdance Crop Top, Michi Barre Leggings.

The options are really limitless here with Carbon38, but since it’s Fall and the days seem to be anywhere between 45 and 80 degrees, I decided to change out of the more structured Free People Movement Bra and into a lightweight Strike A Pose Bralette by Running Bare and LNA Distressed Fallon V, both in black. These are soft, comfy, and a bit edgy. It’s the perfect outfit to take you from yoga to shopping. When paired with boots, no one would know you just came from class.

Later, I prepped for dinner by popping in to a dressing room while shopping, removing the LNA tee and zipping up the  Carbon38 Hayato Jacket that was still rolled up in my purse from this morning (BONUS: it does not wrinkle).  I threw my hair up in a high bun, added a matte red lipstick and a pair of black tassled leather earrings. With a few simple swaps and a little accessorizing, I was ready to go.

In sum: Here is what got me from my morning yoga class to dinner later that evening.

In my purse at beginning of the day: Running Bare Bralette, Carbon38 Bomber Jacket, LNA Tee, mini face wash & moisturizer, concealer, red lipstick, earrings.

In my purse at the end of the day: Free People Bra and LNA T, mini face wash & moisturizer, concealer, red lipstick.

No gym bag required.
