Saturday night outfit post


I don’t get to go on many nights out these days, as like any parent knows, when you’ve got children it becomes a major operation. You’ve got to get the kids in bed while getting yourself ready (usually done simultaneously), arranging someone to babysit, not to mention managing to get your friends to achieve the same feat at the same time on the same night. Add into the mix the tiredness after a working week and babies who still get up in the night, and the whole thing doesn’t leave much spare time for getting glammed up and heading out.

Tonight, however, the stars have aligned and I’m going out with my husband and a group of our friends to a very special birthday party. This outfit I’ve put together is part reality, part wishlist, but is based on the new leopard print shirt I just bought from Mango. I’ve never owned anything in classic leopard before, so I’m hoping I can carry it off without looking too Bet Lynch. I think it will work well dressed down with jeans and flats too. What do you think?

Shirt, Mango.
Shoes, Dune.
Skirt, Saks Fifth Avenue (I have a similar one from Topshop)
Coat, Mint Velvet
Bag, Oasis
Cuff, Pieces
Earrings, Nordstrom.

X Julia

    I love that outfit. The skirt is divine. I really, really want one but because I carry my weight round my tummy, I don’t think it would sit quite right. I can dream!
