Being a student, I'm used to having more nights-out than nights-in and so my wardrobe is full of party dresses and high heels.
When Sourz asked me to do a guest post I knew exactly which outfit I wanted to show you - this is my current favourite dress and I can see myself wearing it a lot this summer whilst drinking cocktails and dancing the night away!
Belt: New Look
Shoes: New Look
Ring: Charity Shop
The dress is a really flattering 50s style shirt dress with a fitted top and flared out skirt. My favourite thing about it though is the print - rainbow flamingos! Unfortunately the weather isn't exactly tropical in Britain just now so I've paired it with some black tights, but once it gets warmer this dress would look great with bare legs (with lots of fake tan!). I love dresses that can be worn either for day or night, and I think this one would also be great with leggings and a cardi for wearing in the day time.
I don't usually like being too matchy-matchy with my accessories, but I think because of the bold print on the dress the pink bag and belt really work with this outfit. The belt is bright pink and has sequins on it, what's not to love?! It's such an interesting shape too, it makes a nice change from a boring black belt. A couple of years ago these chain-strap bags were all the rage and absolutely everyone seemed to have one! I still like to use this pink one because it's a great size for a night out (plenty of room for essentials like flat shoes and an umbrella!) and it really helps to brighten up plain black dresses.
These New Look wedges are one of my favourite pairs of shoes at the moment. They're great for dancing in and are much more comfy than ordinary heels. Even though they're wedges, they don't seem too big and chunky so they still look great with girly dresses.
I hope you enjoyed this outfit post, remember to check out my blog elevatormusik for more posts like this! Gillian x
