I know Sunday Smiles are supposed to be non-fashion related… but sometimes, my entire week revolves around one outfit. And this was one of those weeks!
On Friday night I was a guest at the Chernobyl Children’s Project ball. It was in a very posh place, with very posh people and very posh food. So obviously, I needed a very posh dress. But I don’t really ‘do’ posh – I’m a casual dresser (as you well know) and I hate the thought of beautiful dresses hidden away with no occasion to attend. With that in mind, I hit the high street to find a something I could dress up for the night and keep wearing afterwards.
Zara dress, shawl from my SIL’s wardrobe, Dune shoes, Accessorize clutch, Eclectic Eccentricity bracelet, Me and Zena ring
I just adore this Zara maxi dress. At £40, it was pretty cheap in ball gown terms and I know I’ll be wearing it all summer long with gladiator sandals, a skinny belt and a denim jacket. It’s definitely making me smile this week! What do you think? Did I make it black tie beautiful? Would you have gone for something different? And what are YOU smiling about this Sunday? Do tell!
PS – Today was the GalaxyFM Style Hunt interview. I was very, very nervous and HATED being filmed when answering the questions, but overall I think it went well! I’ll hear from them some time this week so will be sure to let you know what happens. Here’s my ‘favourite casual outfit’ – I also wore my ‘favourite going out outfit’ but didn’t get a chance to snap it. Fingers crossed for me!
Primark playsuit, Primark cardigan, Primark tights, thrifted bag, Primark pumps, Eclectic Eccentricity necklace, Me & Zena ring, H&M belt
