how to take a look from day to night

Often times, there's just not enough time in the day! But that doesn't mean you can't look pulled together in a snap just in time to head to dinner. You don't need to pull together an entirely new outfit before you head out for the evening--when you're running around all day long, whether you're at the office or picking up the kids, you just need to keep a few key pieces on hand that can spice up your daytime ensemble for evening.
