A Student's Day to Night Look: From Work to Class


As a woman and student who works during the day in the pharmaceutical industry and also takes premed classes in the evenings, I love a good comfortable outfit that will allow me to have a quick change. Given I literally spend 4-4.5 hours per day in the car, 8 (8+ sometimes) at work, 2-4 hours per day in class depending on the semester, I need a bright, stylish, and comfortable outfit that I can dress up with heels and dress down with sneakers. 


When I am looking for a new low-cost outfit, I typically venture to the Banana Republic Factory outlet to see what they have available at the factory price but also the clearance on the factory prices. You can find great pieces for under $25. 

When I saw the magenta color athleisure 2-piece outfit, I knew I had to get it. It is a highly comfortable and light material outfit that allows your skin to breathe during the summer. It also is simple to dress up with heels or dress down with sneakers. I knew I could use this as a transition outfit from day to night or work to class. 

How I transitioned this outfit was to simply wear Jessica Simpson heels during the day at work, and then on my way out of the office throw on my Sperry (Sperry 7 SEAS Boat Shoe) sneakers for quick errands and class in the evenings. If you are headed out to a nice dinner afterwards, you can put your Jessica Simpson's back on for dinner with your ladies or date night with your husband. 


I also like to be comfortable while I am out studying on the weekends, so this outfit is also perfect for that! Due to its perfect magenta color and a pretty set of New York and Company earrings, you can head out for a fun afternoon/early evening activity solo or with your girls. 

Tell me what you think! Where do you shop for comfortable outfits, stylish for work yet comfortable enough for to wear all day from morning to night? Would you consider that shop or brand low-cost for budget conscious women like myself? Comment below and let's start a conversation to share tips with one another!
