Burning the midnight oil in the last challenge got me into Challenge 5 and ever closer to the premiere of Jane By Design on ABC Family next Tuesday! Because Jane is constantly on the move running errands for Gray and Donovan Decker she asked us to create a transitional look based on a white oxford button down shirt that could be worn to the office and then a night out with little fuss. As a gal who lives in the 'burbs but works and plays in the city, on Fridays I wear outfits that quickly move from the cubicle to the club. For transitional outfits, accessories are the key to changing a base outfit that will take you from AM to PM. For my base outfit, I paired my provided white oxford with a pleated leather skirt.
For the office, I paired the look with a leopard belt and pumps, and office appropriate jewelry; silver bracelets, black pearl earrings and necklace. I carry bigger bags to the office for all my workday necessities (including my PM accessories), so I pulled in some color and pattern with this wool tartan shoulder bag.

Before leaving the office I would change my accessories, by adding a studded waist-cinching belt, and a super tall pair of studded leather shoes. I added some dangly earrings, a chunky statement necklace and leopard clutch. I like small bags for evening, especially wrishttps://www.facebook.com/JaneByDesigntlets that can keep my hands free. Add a red lip and second coat of mascara and away you go!
