What I Wore: Date Night.

It had been way too long since my boyfriend and I both had an evening off work together so we decided to make the most of it last night and go out for dinner! We had super yummy yorkshire puddings, veggies & gravy and we left our local pub extra happy and with very full tummies! It wasn't really a dressing up sort of occasion but I decided to make a little extra effort anyway, just because! I'm a serial over-dresser anyway, the only places I ever look super 'meh' is at work because my uniform sucks & when I'm having duvet days at home! 
Vest Top: Primark.
Cardigan: H&M.
Skirt: Primark. 
Tights: Matalan. 
Necklace: Sailboat, Ahoy!
Bracelet: Sailboat, Ahoy!

This skirt is from good ol' Primarni absolutely yonks ago & I hardly ever wear it because although I absolutely adore it, it's not the most flattering piece of clothing for my hips! I decided to pair it with an all black outfit and I actually really quite liked the way it looked. Granted it's still not super flattering but I liked it and that's all that matters!  I've had all of these items for a little while so I'm really sorry that I haven't been able to find direct links for them all! The cardigan is one of my favourite versatile pieces, it's just a H&M basic but I wear it all the time & it's lasted and washed really well!
The little acorn & owl necklace will be up in my shop, Sailboat, Ahoy! (if it's not there already) really soon. It's the latest little design I've come up with and I really love the little acorn charms, they're actually quite heavy so they're super good quality! I've just popped up this Rocking Horse Charm Bracelet in my shop and I only have a couple so they're super limited edition. I couldn't resist keeping one for myself, well, I seem to be keeping one of everything for myself which I told myself I wouldn't - oopsie!



  1. Ahh you look lovely.. LOVE that skirt! It's good that you make an effort every where you go.. I more often than not look 'meh' coz I'm too lazy to get ready haha!
