Coming out of the cocoon: Day-to-night styling

"Fashion is at once a caterpillar and a butterfly, caterpillar by day, butterfly by night"
- Coco Chanel

Since I work at my retail job all weekend it generally means if I'm going out (which I will admit is reasonable rare) 
I will go straight from work. This presents a double ended problem of what to wear as I don't really want to take a full
 outfit change with me. The photos of this particular outfit are of the 'night/butterfly' look for a friends birthday dinner a 
week or two ago (goodness where is the time going!). I added a bright floral blazer, some heels, and an on trend bag
 to my all-black work-appropriate business-wear and bam ready for a nice dinner out with my friends. I think that's 
the trick for day to night outfits; a few key adjustments (heels being the biggie) to make it all a bit more interesting 
or fun!

lipstick -  'Dear Diary' Mac pro longwear
top, arrow necklace - Glassons
clear perspex bag c/o Choies
watch - May 28th (onceit)
blazer c/o Style Keepers
shoes - number 1 shoes
pants - sewn by me

It was really nice to get to see my friends! We are all doing different things (work and uni wise) at the moment so we
 don't get to see each other as often as I would like. Just part of being an adult I guess *le sigh*. It was at a Japanese 
restaurant called Sake Bar that we've been to before and it was so good. I particularly enjoyed my Lychee chuhai 
and beef tataki (our table ordered eight servings of this lol, they must have enjoyed it too!)

Ellen has been working hard on her mock exams and I have had a whirlwind week of tests and assignments (including
 a 3am stint due to submission problems D:). I saw some others seemed to be having some exams/tests/assignments
/academic marathons too, so best of luck for those if you do! x

  12. You made those pants? Wow. I am fascinated by the pleats that sit on the upper thigh - so unique! I've yet to attempt anything more complicated that skirts with no zips.
