Most of the looks I post here on my blog are daytime casual outfits. I’m more of a stay-at-home person so going out looks aren’t really on my list of priorities to shoot. While I was on holiday we did go out for a few meals, so we snapped this look one evening. Ok, so I’m still wearing trainers but I think this is waayyy more dressy than my normal style so I thought I’d bring this outfit to you as a holiday going out look.
I actually thrifted the skirt but it was brand new with the tags still on it from Boohoo. I loved the colour – kind of metallic and kind of rose gold. The perfect colour for a holiday and a tan, right? The second thing that I loved about this skirt is that it’s got a double layer. You can’t tell from the pictures but this thing has what I like to call a security layer. Let me explain… anyone else feel a little bit self-conscious in bodycon sometimes? Well, two layers = extra comfort and less feeling like you’ve got nowhere to hide. The one thing I’d say is that if you’re going somewhere really hot on your hols then maybe a double layer skirt isn’t going to be ideal…
I wanted to style the skirt with black to make it look more chic and less like I’m in da club. This cute frill layer top from Kylie seemed like the perfect option, and can I just say that this goes with everything! You’ll definitely get your wear out of this if you purchase. (Don’t forget that Kylie is for teens and goes up to a size 13+, equivalent to a UK size 8!) To bring the look back down to earth where I like it, I added my smart-casual trainers from Tommy. Perfect for any occasion and my life-saver holiday shoes!
Shoutout to the bag from Plümo (and my mum for giving it to me) for being a holiday hero piece too. My cameras are very thankful to you for carting them around!
