Outfit: This Friday Night


Dress: Closet via Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: Schuh
Belt: New Look
Ring: ASOS

I wear so much black all the time. It’s a really bad habit but at the same time, black is the best colour so I don’t really care! I wore this outfit last night to go out for my friend’s 21st birthday. Had a great night but I’m suffering today, this post is being written in my bed, accompanied by a bacon sandwich and a big glass of Irn Bru!

I originally bought this dress in pink and I loved it so much that I went back and got the black version too. Skater style dresses are my favourite, they’re so versatile and easy to wear, and they’re really flattering. This one has pockets too, which is always a bonus. I would quite happily buy one of these dresses in every colour, if that wasn’t such a weird thing to do!

I wore my ridiculous sparkly shoes out for the first time and they were surprisingly comfy. And when I say comfy what I mean is my feet are still in one piece and I didn’t fall over – so they were much better than I expected! Lots of different people complimented me on my shoes (including the bouncer! Aye those are quality, hen) so that made me smile.

Wolves are one of my favourite animals so when I saw this wolf’s head ring in the ASOS sale a couple of years ago I snapped it straight up. It looks a little bit like a bear, however, but I still like it! I don’t really wear it that much because it’s really big and a bit of a statement piece but as my outfit was really plain I thought it worked quite well.

I’m off out again tonight so I think lots of BBC iplayer and an afternoon nap is in order to make me feel human again!
