Day & Night

I am a chronic over-planner at weekends. I always feel like I need to cram as much into my Saturdays as possible and last weekend was no different. I had plans to meet a friend for lunch at Tibits, visit the Postmodernism exhibition at the V&A and then go to a different friend's birthday meal...all with no time in between to pop back home to change into my party dress. Dilemma. Here's how I solved it:



Dress: c/o Motel Rocks, Jumper: TU @ Sainsburys, Necklace: Topshop: Boots: Office, Watch: ASOS



Same outfit + red lipstick + Dune heels (as worn here)

I love how this dress is "party" enough for the evening but really comfortable to wear all day. With opaque black tights and a jumper to hide the sheer panels it worked really well as a skirt and then I swapped the boots and jumper for heels in the evening. This strategy also paid off for the tube ride home as I didn't have to totter down the escalators in my heels or freeze to death!

How do you deal with day-to-night dressing?

  1. Great idea! I tend to try and do something similar, a change of shoes and accessories can make all the difference I think!
