Conference Fashion Transition to going out – Chambray dress and accessories part 2

Hello loves!
This is part 2 of the conference fashion post from Tuesday – but now I bring you an easy way to transition this same outfit into an easy going out/drinks/dinner/nightlife post by just changing some accessories!
Trying to pack light, I packed a lot of different accessories, and planned some outfits that I could transition easily by switching accessories, so I could get the most out of my expeditions out into the city without having to go back to the hotel to change! The statement necklace easily fits in my purse and I can carry my blazer! This is my look for the conference happy hour before heading out for dinner and drinks!
By just a simple removal of the blazer and switching the statement necklace, I feel like it looks like a different outfit! The same chambray dress from eShakti and heels from Nine West, and the same fringe purse! I am thinking of wearing my hair up though, since I wear my hair down a lot, and it is hot!

The original business outfit:

Dress: Chambray dress from eShakti | Necklace: Forever 21 | Purse: Fringe, Perfect Image from Ross | Heels: Nine West | Blazer (removed): Steve Harvey | Bangles: Gift

What do you think about this outfit? Do you think transitioning outfits is worth it?

It is still classy enough to wear to work and just removing the blazer makes such a difference! We are going to head to a tapas bar for dinner and drinks, I can’t wait to post the photos later!

    Well, I told you, I loved the dress and I loved the shoes – now I can see the dress better and with that statement necklace it is perfect! I think you look very elegant, but really VERY elegant and I like this outfit very much! You are a smart packing girl! Hope you have a great time there, enjoy it a lot!
