Fashion | Two meals, two outfits

It’s been a while since I wrote a fashion post, in fact it was my workwear haul in February – and oh my gosh, my last OOTD was July 2018! To be honest, my wardrobe needs a complete overhaul – there’s so much that doesn’t fit me, I don’t wear and I actually think now I’m a mum reaching my 30s, I need some guidance!

Last month, I was lucky enough to go out twice in a week – both times for dinner, but with a different selection of friends. I just really liked my outfits on both occasions, so thought I would share them.

 Outfit 1 – dinner at Nonna’s
Jumpsuit: Boohoo
Bag: Kurt Geiger
Shoes: Kurt Geiger
Watch: Marc Jacobs

I recently blogged my girls night out at Nonna’s, Woburn Sands. My outfit was quite simple, to be honest. I bought the jumpsuit ahead of seeing the Spice Girls. We had planned on going out afterwards, so I bought it to change into – but we ended up staying at the hotel and going to bed. Finally, I had an excuse to wear it.

Boohoo clothes are rarely true-to-size, I find and even though this was a size 8, it came up quite big, especially around my chest and waist. Thankfully, it had a ribbon-style tie, so I could do it up. But I needed to tape it to myself. The length of the arms and legs are meant to be cropped, but when I sat down, I found the legs rode up far too much and it just didn’t feel right. A shame, because the stripes and colours are gorgeously bold.

I decided on my black Kurt Geiger wedges as I recently threw out a lot of my pairs of heels (I simply don’t wear them anymore), but in hindsight, I think my Linzi platforms (in black or white) would have worked better.

Outfit 2 – dinner at The Wavendon Arms
Top: New Look
Skirt: Boohoo
Bag, shoes & watch: As above

The following Friday, I was out again. I had booked the day off work and had been to get my hair cut (and completely re-styled) during the day. My hairdresser Zoe is fabulous and said that the lob bob was on-trend at the minute. The last time she cut my hair, I went shorter and she suggested the cut would really suit me, so I went for it!

I decided to channel all my Parisienne vibes to mirror my hair, opting for the striped top and pleather pencil skirt. The top is slightly cropped, but didn’t look right with the skirt, so I decided to tuck it in and wear the skirt as high-waisted.

I decided to go monochrome for that classic look, which was ideal as the decor in the restaurant was dark, but glamorous. I was much happier with my shoes with this outfit, but felt I needed more accessories to really pull off ‘French Chic’.

Two lovely evenings full of good food, fizz and fashion – and so nice to go out and socialise to remind me that I’m not just a working mum!
