Dressy Casual

When someone says "Dressy casual" to me I usually fly into a blind panic for two reasons: a) I have been described as looking ill when I'm dressed down and b) I like being glam 24/7. It's true that I am the type of person who just suits being dressed well. I have friends who have never seen me in gym wear and until recently one of my best friends had never seen me sans my full face of makeup. 

However, since 2014 heralds a new age for the blog and for me in my life, my attempt at "dressy casual" is here for you all to see. We were heading to The Barking Dog for a friends birthday so I teamed my favourite Super High Waisted back jeans from Primark with some leather court shoes from M&S. Truth be told, these are actually my new work shoes and I needed to break them in but they seem to work in many a situation. Office to party, check. On top I wore 2 January sale finds. Firstly, a rather drapey grey tee from Topshop. I love the fit of this as it's so slouchy (and will cover post meal bloat... Let's be honest ladies, we all get it!). On top of this is my new black blazer. I needed one as my old one had seen its day and I picked this number up from Primark for a bargain £10. It's probably hard to see in the picture but it has leather arms giving it a bit more of an edge. Lastly, I threw on a statement necklace from Primark, £5. They have lots of great necklaces in at the moment and I'd advise anyone to pick up one. They change an outfit in a minute for very little money. 

Let me know what you think of my dressy casual attempt!
