Outfit: Flowers in the Window


Dress: H&M
Belt: Primark
Shoes New Look
Ring: Topshop

Another recent going-out outfit which I wore for a night out with my friends. Looking back at how many going-out outfit posts I’ve blogged about compared to casual outfits, I’ve come to the conclusion that I go out far too much! When I’m shopping I’m always attracted to shiny things, tight dresses, sequins and high heels. I hardly ever buy anything sensible!

I have a love/hate relationship with bodycon dresses. Sometimes I think they look really flattering on me and other times I think they look awful. Do you have a dress that you put on and sometimes feel really confident in, but other times hate it and immediately take it off and swap it for something else? This is definitely one of those dresses for me. I’m loving it at the moment though, the floral print isn’t to girly so is right up my street (although the way it’s printed, it makes my boobs look a bit squint in these photos!).

I wouldn’t necessarily wear these rings together, or with this dress, but they were lying around when I was taking outfit photos so I thought I would put them on anyway as they’re two of my favourites at the moment. The big gold one is from Topshop and looks great as a bit of a statement piece with a plain black dress. The small one is a mood ring! I remember having loads of these when I was younger, I always used to buy them in gift shops for some reason?! I got this one for £1 in a shop that smelt of insence and sold lots of gemstones and crystals. According to the card that came with it, I was feeling ‘cool’ when these photos were taken!

Do you like bodycon dresses? What’s your favourite type of going-out outfit?

P.S. I’m having a wardrobe clear-out and selling some stuff on ebay. There’s lots already up and I will be adding more so have a look here and grab yourself a bargain!

    You have that coveted hourglass shape and proportions. I really wish I was proportioned as well as you.

    I like shiny things, too! I tend to pick out things that are either way too casual or much too dressy. Not so good at everyday chic.

  • You have a gorgeous hourglass figure and the dress shows that 😀 I only have one bodycon dress that I love but I plan on getting more.

    I have one dress that I have a love/hate relationship as it's a gorgeous colour but makes me look like a housewife 😛 Funnily enough I've only ever worn it at my house and haven't had the courage to wear it out anywhere ): xxx

    I have dresses that sometimes make me feel amazing and sometimes are just so totally wrong… I think it's part of dressing up a lot!

  • Jenna Suth says:

    That's a lovely dress! I tend to go for bodycon skirts rather than dresses, I like to feel I can breathe out and sometimes I'm a bit concious of that when I'm in a bodycon dress xo

  • You look lovely ! I love that ring too ! xx

  • Beth Ramsay says:

    I love body con dresses, this looks great on you 🙂 I'm exactly the same I always end up buying going out dresses and heels when I should buy more casual things for everyday use X

    I really need to try out some bodycon dresses now I'm feeling more toned with my running. I've always been too scared to before! My friend always wears them and looks so fabulous but she is about 5 ft 9 with skyscraper legs. *sigh*.

    mmm, i'm always a bit wary of body con dresses, and i tend to stick with skater style ones instead. it looks lovely on you though, so you shouldn't worry!
