Hey everyone. 

This post is about: one dress!
One special dress that's suitable for daytime while going on the job and still wears beautifully for a night out on the town. Portuguese brand: Not So Basic does it with their gorgeous, "easy to wear" little black dresses. Today I want to show you how you can easily transform from a day into a night outfit with one simple piece.

I think it's okay to wear a statement necklace and still look professional as long as the piece has clean shapes and is not too over powering.

A cuddly cardigan or fitted blazer adds to a professional, yet relaxed look while on the job or attending casual meetings during the day.


Now on to the night:

Add sparkle by wearing eye catching jewellery and add a bold print clutch for a more night time dramatic effect.

I chose a leopard clutch, which has become a classic print over the past few years and will still add some edginess to this classic black dress.
