I think I must be getting lazy in my old age (who am I kidding, I have ALWAYS been lazy) but the less effort I have to put in to getting ready for a night out, the better. Lots of people seem to say getting ready is the best part of a night out, but I'd have to disagree; I'd rather lounge on the sofa in my pyjamas, with a drink in hand, until 10 minutes before the taxi arrives. This is my favourite outfit of the moment for precisely that reason. What could be easier than throwing on leggings and a slouchy top? The addition of some gold jewellery and heels make it perfect for night time, but it's not overly fancy so would also be great for going out for dinner or to the pub.

I also love the bright coral colour of this chiffon blouse from Primark as it helps to steer me away from my bad habit of always wearing head to toe black. I wear it on top of a plain black vest top from H&M as the material is slightly see through. This vest top is probably the best £5 I've ever spent, I wear it literally all the time. It's just like a basic stretchy vest top, but is a bit longer than usual so is great for wearing with leggings. I can't see it on the H&M website just now, but I think it was part of their basic range so hopefully it should stick around for a while. Think I'll go back and buy a couple more just in case though!

Do you like getting ready or would you rather just point at yourself in the mirror and be done, Sabrina style?

  7. On the odd occasion I love spending ages getting ready, but now when I go out I don't intend on it being a huge night out like when I was younger so I just go a bit more casual and sit round in my dressing gown with a drink! :)

    Love the blouse :)

  8. I'm one of those people who says I like getting ready the most, but really what I mean is I like pre-drinking and chatting AFTER I've done the actual getting-dressed hair-faffing thing... finding a great outfit like yours that I can throw on and look fab is my ideal! Loving the shoes especially, I'm really into black wedges at the moment.

  18. I think it ttly depends on what mood I'm in. Some nights I'll have a long bath, shave my legs, paint my nails, do my make up all whilst sipping on a beverage and listening to some CHOONS. Some nights I'll sit in front of the mirror with 30mins before the taxi comes. Nevertheless...love this outfit! x

  20. I'm terrible with getting ready for a night out, I always sit about for too long beforehand and end up on being on the last minute or running late! I love the colour of the blouse! Hope you have a fun night :)
