Day to Night in a White Button Down Shirt and Booties

When I used to work in an office, I was constantly rushing from my desk to drinks and dinners. So I starting getting clever with my workwear so I only had to swap one or two things for a smooth outfit transition. For Fall, you can get creative with a white button-down shirt and booties.

Day Outfit

At the office, pair the shirt and booties with a longer skirt. I like Fall’s wrap skirt trend because it’s slimming on all body types. I went with a dark floral print but you can also do a solid color if you have a more conservative work space.

Night Outfit

The only switch I made to go into night was my skirt. I’m obsessed with leather mini skirts for fall. There are so many cute options, especially ones with floral embroidery (I linked to a bunch of affordable faux leather ones at the end of this post). Sine my bag is luxe velvet, it easily transitions from day to night. I just removed the shoulder strap and made it a satchel.

    To deal with the transitional weather, pair with a bootie and shorts. Tie your button-down shirt in a knot for an even more relaxed look.
