Out Of The Dark

I’ve been having a lot of fun lately playing around with looks that are casual with a sexy twist. Even though it’s late May, the weather in London is still pretty dismal and we’re still having to wrap up for those chilly or wet days. I like to keep it simple sometimes and wear clothes that would be suitable for the office but just as good to have an evening drink in. Lately I’m in a place in my life where I’m busy busy busy with 500 things to do all in one day so I have to find ways to simplify the wardrobe situation.

Now not everyone has a massive budget to play around with and sometimes you need to be aware of where some great bargains are. Every now and and again I’ll head into a Primark store and find something great be it a top, accessory or some other cool products. The only downside about having stores like this is that the items they get are usually only available once unless it’s socks or something. Hanna let me borrow this amazing jumper dress that she found in there! It was a great fit, really comfortable and the exact length I like for jumper dresses.

I thought I’d stick to dark colours as this would make accessorizing easy and would work for a day or night time look. I decided to pair the dress with a pair of wet look legggings that I’ve had for ages, low ankle boots, my black beret hat and a simple black clutch. A long black chain and my signature hoop earrings were added and I was finished with the look. I tend to wear a pop of colour if I’m playing around with a monochrome or dark look and so I decided that red lips were a must!

Have a look around in your wardrobe. You may find a simple sweater that you think is quite causal, play around with some leggings or a cool pair of jeans and you may end up with a comfortable look that is just right if you don’t have time to change looks before heading out after a busy day!

Remember whatever you wear, feel fabulous in it and wear it with a smile!

    I know exactly what you mean about budget, a lot of my work stuff is Primarni, I never saw this dress though I wish I had. I think this look is amazing on you and I love how you styled it with the beret really cute x
