A Glimpse of Glam: Day to Night ft AUrate New York - Andrea Tiffany

Hey everyone!

I hope you guys aren't completely broke after holiday shopping, and still got some left to treat yourselves. If you are in need of some ideas to accessorize, I've got a way to solve that problem. With these busy pre-holiday days, it is definitely easy to be at loss when it comes to what to wear for a night out after having spent the day running from one place to another trying to get everything done.

In just one week, Christmas will finally be here! I cannot believe how quickly this holiday season has passed by. Though, I do say that every year. To the point where my sister gets annoyed with me and my yakking about how time is going too fast. Unlike last year, I actually have been getting into the holiday mood. Because of my incessant need to blast holiday music, I truly feel like it is mid-December. Plus. it helps that every time I went out the crowded parking lots and bumper-to-bumper traffic reinforced the fact that people are indeed out holiday shopping with frenzy. It's the holiday season for sure.

I've mentioned several times before that I work part time as a barista, and you have no idea how many kids hot chocolates I've made in the past several weeks. And not all of them were for kids, if you know what I mean.

The month of December entails many days of errand running and last minute shopping, and many nights of get-togethers and gift exchanges with friends or other holiday parties. Literally in one week, Christmas will be here! I've already done a round of gift exchanging with some of my friends. Whenever I buy gifts for people, I always get so overeager, and desperately want to give it to them right then and there. It's so hard to wait. Patience is a struggle. I have a few more gift exchanges coming up, with one being both for a birthday and for Christmas. I definitely cannot wait to receive my own gifts! Have you opened any gifts you've received yet?

With a busy schedule, the term "transitional outfit" really becomes your best friend. Living out of your car doesn't sound so extreme at this time of year.

Today, I wanted to share with you all some mood board style ideas for day to night transitional outfits. Easy styling ideas for whenever you feel at loss. Nothing overwhelming, just simplicity and minimalism to contrast with your hectic life.

With this mood board here, I put together things that would all work well for a day look. You guys are all very well aware of my obsession with jumpsuits, so I just had to include one. A jumpsuit for the day might not seem like something to go for during the winter months, but paired with a thick blazer or long wool coat, it would work well. The heels I chose are not super high and skinny, definitely more reasonable of an option to walk around in. Although, if you are really out and about, then go for flat shoes like some ankle boots instead. If you twist an ankle, that would just add another thing to your list to take care of.

A quick and easy swap for the night would be changing up your outer layers, and slipping on a different pair of shoes. If you got the time, redo your hair and maybe even swipe on a bolder lip color to finish. Fur coats are super trendy right now. Fur or faux fur coats have this edgy, daring feel to it. They are relaxed and cozy, yet look very chic and model off-duty. The burgundy boots contrast in color with the coat ever so slightly, adding to the overall fun, playful night look. The cooler tone of the boots and the dark navy coat are just analogous enough that it works. Plus, the darker red makes it perfect for any holiday party you're attending.

The style mood boards above both feature the same gold bar necklace from AUrate New York. This minimalist necklace is just enough to accessorize an outfit, without being overbearing. Thin, delicate, and versatile.

A Glimpse of Glam: AUrate New York Gold Bar Necklace - Andrea Tiffany

AUrate New York is a company that specializes in high quality hand-crafted jewelry. They focus on creating pieces that are ethically sourced and sold without the use of middlemen. They have a wide variey of jewelry to choose from, whether it be silver, gold, or rose gold. All are rather minimalist and would work well in any outfit. I personally especially like the rings they have to offer because the design are quite unique and eye-catching. Delicate, crisp lines. Nothing extravagant, nothing gaudy. Definitely pieces that would be good for everyday looks.

I like chunky jewelry, but sometimes minimalist pieces work best. You don't have to think too much about what to wear with it. They work with nearly everything. I have this statement necklace that I've only worn a handful of times because I have to center the outfit around that necklace. Whereas, with a delicate piece like the gold bar, you can literally wear anything.

Currently, I am finding myself really going for minimalist jewelry, and AUrate really adds to it. It inspires me to find simple pieces that work well with everything, that are sleek and modern and tasteful.

Do you prefer statement jewelry, or simple minimalist ones? 

How do you transition an outfit from day to night? Are you more of a necklace, ring, or bracelet person? Comment down below to lemme know!

Thank you all for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this post, and have a wonderful day!


Til next time,

  8. I too can't believe how quickly this holiday season has passed by! This year in general, it's been absolutely mental and I cannot believe that we're already in 2017 - madness! I hope that you're having a fab Christmas week. :) We're having a pretty modest Christmas this year, my family isn't very big so we just hang out together, share gifts but it's not really that big of a celebration. Also, really enjoyed the lovely outfits you've shared here! The necklace is cute too, I'm normally into minimalist pieces so this one is right up my alley. :) Thank you for sharing! Kisses.xoxo

    1. I feel like smaller celebrations are really nice as well. It allows you to really connect with people. Sometimes big parties can be pretty overwhelming. I can't believe it's 2017 already too! I keep accidentally writing 2016 on my papers haha
      I really adore how this gold bar necklace is dainty and eye catching without stealing the show. I'm glad you like it too! Thank you Kay! I hope you have a great week!

  10. I wouldn't have necessarily have thought to wear a jumpsuit in the day but pairing it with something like a blazer as you have suggested is a great idea and works so well for a day to night outfit :) I love both statement jewellery and minimalist pieces depending on what I am wearing it with. I like statement jewellery for adding something extra to an outfit but if it's a piece of jewellery that's being bought for me as a gift then I like something more classic and timeless x

    1. I adore jumpsuits so I just had to find a way to fit it in! Hahaha I'm glad it works, because I wasn't a hundred percent sure at first too because of the color. I definitely agree that daintier minimalist jewelry is more classic and timeless. They work no matter the season. I didn't even think of that! Thank you!

  12. Love the mood boards you put together! A jumpsuit can be so classy, especially paired with a faux fur coat (which are AMAZING, I only wish I had more use for them where I live). I used to be a statement jewelry person, but now I think it really is dependent on what I'm wearing or how I feel. I love both styles so much!

    1. I wish I could wear faux fur coats as well. But it's so not practical with all the rain here! I agree that it's more about how I feel now. I used to wear the same jewelry every day. But now I switch it up every so often based on my mood. Thanks Sam!

  15. Hi dear :) I really like your post - honestly, I used to wear a lot of statement necklaces in the past, but now, I'm changing that habit slowly, because when I got older, I've started to appreciate simply necklaces, just like this one from your collages, it looks really chic and timeless :)
    Have a lovely evening, dear Tiffany:)

  18. Love this post, I am feeling so festive now though I am still so disorganised! I love the idea of daytime jumpsuits though, even with a big statement scarf or sometimes I wear them with a big slouchy jumper.

    Have a lovely holiday season, look forward to reading more of your posts in the New Year!

    1. Ooh a statement scarf with a jumpsuit sounds like the perfect outfit as well! That's a great way to keep warm while still looking chic. I like that idea :) Big slouchy sweaters and cardigans are so cozy and appealing too. I hope you are having a fantastic new year so far! Thank you!

    1. I agree, I find that extravagant styles work really well too because they are such a statement and are bright and bold. I love the thrill of wearing something different and attention grabbing! But I do like switching it up with minimalist styles too for a change. Thank you Winnie!

  22. Thank you for the inspiration! I guess I am lucky (or not) that I don't really have much parties to attend during holidays. You can call me introvert or anti-social but I just don't like getting tired of socializing. haha! But this is very helpful to some people I know who hop from one party to the next as this is always their problem: what to wear to the next one. Glad I don't have that dilemma. :)

    1. Haha I can be a bit of an introvert as well! I like to either be with a smaller group of people or by myself :P It's easier to connect with people that way. I'm glad you find this helpful even though it doesn't apply to you :) It's nice to always have an idea just in case. I hope you are having a lovely 2017 so far, thanks Jenn!
