As a mom, I will leave the house dressed to the nines and then at some point, I’ll need a change of style to keep up with my kids. I am going to share super simple steps on how to take a dress from flirty to casual. Call me crazy, but I want to be able to still wear heels with my outfit and then change if I need to.
While these blue tassel heels are extremely comfortable and low to the ground, I still find myself wanting flat shoes or sandals to run around in half way through the day. I love a good outfit change and I have been doing this ever since I was a little girl. I drove my parents crazy changing at least five times in one day and I have kind of carried this over in to my adult years as well. You can imagine the amounts of laundry I have to wash and fold. Ha! Who am I kidding, I totally will hang the pieces back in my closet without washing them as long as I haven’t sweat in them. It really depends on how long I wear the items and what activities I do while wearing the pieces.
How to Take a Dress From Flirty to Casual
- Change your shoes. Swap out your flirty shoes with a casual pair of shoes and call it a day. I went from a small block heel to a flat sandal with GREAT support. These Kork-Ease sandals are seriously amazing. I love the bounce I have in my step with these on. They are extremely supportive and don’t leave my feet feeling sore.
- Swap out your bag. While I don’t have my second bag pictured, I changed bags from my small tassel bag to a large tote for a more casual feel and literally threw my little purse inside my tote and left everything inside my little bag to avoid having to transfer everything from one bag to another.
- Add a hat. Go from no hat to wearing a hat. With spring here and summer approaching, you can ALWAYS add a hat to have all the casual feels (“all the feels” is totally the language of this day and age. It is one phrase I am actually up to date on).
Test out these tips and let me know if they work for you. I am so curious to know if anyone else does this. I am sure my daughter is going to be just like me. She already changes her outfit at nap time. I know I am in for trouble with her; she definitely keeps me on my toes.
