Ever been in a rush from a busy day and not had enough time to get ready for an evening out? I find recently for me this has been the case for me. Being a second year uni student the work load is building up. I spend my days in uni or running errands, so when it comes to the evening, dinner out or going for drinks, I don’t want to spend ages getting ready. As a result of this I have become a big fan of day to night outfits!
I was in this situation on Saturday, a day spent working away in the library, followed by my boyfriend taking me out for dinner and a cinema trip. I really wanted to wear my new mustard t-shirt dress (H&M) that my boyfriend had picked out for me, so decided to base my outfits for the day around this! I wanted to keep my daytime look comfy and casual yet still stylish. I decided to pair the t-shirt dress with my favourite jeans, the Asos Farleigh Mon jeans. I tucked the front on my dress into the jeans to give it more of a normal t-shirt look. It was a sunny day, but being autumn not warm enough to skip wearing a jacket so as a compromise I went with an oversized scarf. This scarf is from H&M and after buying it last year, I fell in love with it. On my feet I threw on my black, high top convserse, such a good go to pair of shoes and finally had my trusty sunnies with me.
When I got back from the library I had only a shirt time to get ready, but after having planned my outfit in my head I knew it wouldn’t take me long. I switched the jeans for a pair of thick black cable knit tights, leaving the dress to hang down. I then replaced the scarf with a bow chocker (River Island), which instantly dress up the outfit. On my head, I added a black floppy hat. This was another purchase from last year and I love it as a statement piece. It’s great if you haven’t had time to do your hair or if you just want to add something extra to an outfit. I decided not to take a jacket out with me, as I knew we would just be indoors and with it being a humid night didn’t want to get too hot. Finally on my feet I went with some black lace up heeled boots. (Sorry these didn’t show up on camera that well!) The heel on these boots is small enough to be super comfy and wearable, but big enough to make them perfect for an evening look!
I thought I would also share with you a closer up view of my hair and make up for the day. I curled my hair first thing in the morning so that it would last me all day. I also did most of my make up, making sure to both prime and spray my face, helping the make up to stay on all day. When it came to the evening to touch the look up, I added winged liner and a kohl pencil on my water line (Forgot to take a photo of this!!). Finally I changed my nude daytime lip to a warmer red toned autumn colour!
I am so happy with how these looks turned out! But I have to say I was conscious that the dress was very short and have decided when I next wear it to experiment with pairing a black body con skirt underneath it.
