Lookbook: Day to Night

Daytime


Nighttime




Happy April Fool's Day! Not that today is considered a holiday, but we'll acknowledge it.

This past weekend was spent in a relaxing way as this week was going to be a crazy work week for me. I definitely took advantage of just lounging around, eating delicious food, and watching movies. Finally saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower on Blu-ray. I had no idea how sad and disturbing the storyline was. I haven't read the book, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I still enjoyed the movie though.


On Saturday, we made a conscious effort to get up early since we tend to sleep in over the weekend. The boyfriend and I went to brunch at Blu Jam Café on Melrose. I've finally tried their famous Crunchy French Toast. The only other place I would eat French Toast is at Square One Dining in Silverlake. I can't say one is better than the other since they're both different, but they're both delicious in their own ways.


After brunch, we headed back with a really bad food coma. I was planning on having a productive day, but instead, I ended up taking a nice long nap. I decided to change my top with this black t-shirt instead since it got so warm towards the middle of the day. Then I woke up hungry again and decided to get some snacks, aka ice cream, at Scoops. I swear all we seem to do is eat, but I don't really mind haha.

We took a stroll around the area as we noticed that they had some cool graffiti art on the wall. And this wall definitely got our attention because of its vibrant colors. Not to mention, it also had Catwoman in it too. We just thought that this background was a nice contrast on my monochromatic outfit.


As as the sun had set, I changed up my outfit by making it nighttime appropriate and glamming it up a bit with some heels on. It's amazing how a few tweaks with your accessory and shoes can change the whole look of your outfit.


If you guys ever find yourself at the Grove, try to go up to the rooftop parking lot which is the employee parking lot. I never realized how amazing the view is up there. It was a little cloudy and smoggy when we came up there, but the view was breathtaking nonetheless. I can only imagine how much better it would be on a clear day. You have a view of the Hollywood sign, Downtown LA, and Century City all in one spot.


Not sure if you notice though, but these are currently my favorite shorts! I bought them at Necessary Clothing back in October when we went to New York, and I've been in love with them since. I've worn these previously as seen on this post.

So I wonder, what would you do you usually wear to help transition your daytime outfit to a nighttime outfit?
