I would like to say that generally I can style myself to look half decent nine out of ten times (I hope!) but I, like many other women I'm sure, struggle with certain outfit scenarios. One being - that horrible transfer between day and night. I just can't do it. If I'm going out straight from work I either look rediculously dressed up for the whole day and then feel a bit like a dirty stop-out or I end up showing up for my evening plans looking like I've just rolled out of bed and everyone else is rediculously glamourous. Take tonight for example, I'm going to a gig after work so this morning I had the horrible dilemma of working out what to wear for both work and this gig. It's pretty cold outside today too (don't let the sunshine decieve you) so I also had to factor in that I would probably be cold walking to and from said gig but also taking into account the fact that the venue I'm going to might as well be a sauna for the amount of sweating that goes on inside that joint. It's just too much for one girl to think about! Oh how I yearn to be one of those girls that can just throw on something on the morning and it'll see her through the day.
So as I was just about ready to throw my morning cuppa across my bedroom it suddenly came to me what I could do to jazz up my outfit so it would be fit for both...TIGHTS! I don't know how I didn't think of it before. I have so many pairs of patterned tights and I have not untilised them! So today I've whacked on some spotty tights and voila, I do believe my outfit is suitable enough for work and play.
Shift Dress - American Apparel
Monochrome Cardi - F&F
Pumps - River Island
Brooch - Vintage
Tights - Urban Outfitters
What do you think? I think it's a pretty good effort considering my normal disasters. I'm also sporting a lovely little vintage horseshoe brooch given to me by my Nanna. Hopefully that will bring me some good luck with the outfit choice at least! Now I just need to get these House of Holland tights in my life and there will be no stopping me...
