My Favourite Dress

My favourite dress
The whole dressing up/dressing down thing seems to pretty big right now so I thought I’d roll with that for a blog post. I have a dress that’s been my staple since I was 16 years old. 6 years on and this floral New Look number is still going strong and has seen me go from a size 14, to a big 18 and now I’m somewhere in the middle.

I’m all for versatile clothes so I’ve put together a day look and a night look using one staple piece. Apologies for the Myspace style photos, living alone sucks when you want to take outfit shots.

Dressed Down.

I went with this denim jacket for my day look mainly because I don’t get nearly enough wear out of it – jeans are my staple and double denim makes me look like a 90’s throwback/B*Witched fangirl. But I'm starting to roll with day dresses a bit more than I used to out of work, just because I wear denim in the office on a day to day basis. 
These black leather boots from JD Williams are perfect for day dresses now that dolly shoe season is well and truly over. I really struggle with finding boots as I have curvy calves and they offer boots in a variety of width and calf fittings – perfect for me! I love the outer zip details on these too. JD Williams have brought out a really great new collection this season for winter, their knee-high boots are especially good for every day.

Dressed Up.

This dress has had a lot of wear for nights out and has cropped up quite regularly in my Facebook photos since 2008 so updating it into a 'new' outfit is quite important to me. Mainly because I don't want people to think I only have one dress that I wear all the time (when in actual fact, there are at least three of those).
I stuck with black leather for my shoes but went for chunky heels instead, this time from New Look. I just can’t do stilettos without falling over so blocky heels are my fave at the moment! I added a navy blazer and a belt to smarten up this outfit and voila, ready to go out.

What do you think of my day-night looks? Do you have that one dress you can just throw on for any occasion? 

*Please note that the boots were gifted to me by JD Williams but as always, my opinions are entirely my own.
