It’s Friday night, you’re heading out for some after work drinks and this little dress is perfect to take you from the office, to a bar.
Dress: Top Shop £48 (now on Sale for £10!!)
So this week I got to fulfil a lifetime ambition of seeing my favourite band live, the wonderful Pearl Jam. Suffice to say the gig was amazing, but before the gig I had to get something to wear and what better for a hot night in July, going to a gig filled with thousands of people, than a new graphic tank. This one was an absolute bargain at just £6 from Primark. I don’t shop there often, but I always seem to stumble upon a wee gem now and again, and who can argue with the pice! Continue reading
Date night with the boyfriend. You’ve mentally run through your wardrobe, decided what you’re going to wear, done your preening, primping and making yourself purty, then, the outfit goes on and you hate it! Nothing sits right, you don’t feel comfortable and you’re back to the drawing board!
Well that was me last night, the pre planned outfit went out the window and last minute I was throwing on my go to outfit, Top Shop skinny jeans, my new Top Shop desert ankle boots (another sale purchase £62 down to £32) and a Top Shop vest from about 3 years ago!
Simple, comfy and perfect for dinner with the other half. I also threw on a wee Top Shop denim jacket to keep warm!
So the key to a good date night outfit; you must feel good or you’re not going to relax and enjoy your night! So don’t be scared to through your planned look out the window and go with your last minute option, it may be the best!
Oh and can you tell I like Top Shop….
I mentioned I found a few bargains in the sales and here is another of my favourite buys. The Parker, a jacket I’ve coveted for a while now and when the January sales rolled in I went on the hunt. I tried on A LOT of parkers, many with furry hoods, but I settled on this one from Oasis. It was reduced from £79 to £50, so a decent buy for a jacket that I think will stand the test of time.
Winter into Spring, ill be wearing this with my skinny jeans and cons and come festival season, I dare say shorts and wellies!
So, what does ones wear to a sweaty rock gig I found myself asking the other night? I was off to see Queens Of The Stoneage and knew I would be in the middle of a packed crowd of thousands, so my trusty skull vest was dug out, teamed with the ever trusty Top Shop skinny jeans and comfy wedges (3 inches to help me see).
I wish I could remember where I got this vest; it’s done me proud over the years, but I honestly can’t think where I bought the thing! I do remember it was cheap though, around £12.
As I always say, style, costs nothing 🙂
Yesterday I had a very rare day out with some dear girlfriends who I don’t see nearly enough of! As usual work, kids and life gets in the way, but yesterday was our day; a whole day off from everything other than chat, laughs and of course some liquid refreshments!
We met at the gorgeous Blythswood Hotel in Glasgow and went on to a fabulous lunch at Jamie’s Italian. After there were cocktails at The Corinthian and One Up. So my outfit for the days festivities was smart casual, day to night wear that I felt comfortable and just dressed up enough in.
Skinny jeans, Top Shop, boots, Kate Moss for Top Shop, blazer, Top Shop and new blouse, a steal at £10 from Primark!
