There are days where I have to quickly change between work, running an errand, and then going out, but don’t have a lot of time in between. Instead of picking out three different outfits to wear, I tend to switch out just a few things to change up the look throughout the day. In doing this, I keep one thing a constant—it’s usually a top because bottoms or shoes can easily be switched out.
Here, I’ve taken one of my easier tops and styled it in three different ways—a work outfit, a casual running around outfit, and something I can go to dinner in. Plus, this shows how easily a casual top can transition throughout the day, and how one shirt can be so versatile in your closet.
In the morning, I could start off with something like this—a top, blazer, slacks, and heels. It’s a pretty standard work wear outfit. I don’t know about y’all, but when I get off of work, I want to quickly change into something casual to bum around or run errands in.

Which brings us to the second outfit. Here I’ve just thrown off the heels (thank god), taken off the blazer, and put on a pair of jean shorts and my favorite comfy studded mules. I’ll quickly grab my wallet, phone, keys, and cross body bag and head out the door. Oh…I’ll also give my hair a little fluff!
Shirt – Marshall’s, Jean shorts – GAP, Mules and bag – Nine West
Sometimes I’m super lucky and someone will want to hang out with me in the evening. In that case, I can just switch out jean shorts with jeans, put on some comfy heels, add a red lip, and I’m good to go!
Shirt – Marshall’s, High-waisted jeans – American Eagle, Wedges – Charlotte Russe, Clutch – DSW, Lipstick – Heatwave by NARS
I could have created all these looks with a simple black tank, but I thought the red and white stripes would bring a more fun detail to each outfit. If for some reason I can’t make it home, I can also quickly pack a pair of jean shorts or jeans, sandals, a cross-body bag, and a red lipstick in my car and change throughout the day. Boom—three outfits in 12 hours!
