Photos by Portia Hunt
A dressier outfit post for you today. I find it difficult to blog outfits like this because on occasions when I do wear them, (a) it’s usually dark, and (b) I’m concentrating on enjoying myself rather than taking photos! Luckily, after wearing this outfit for a friend’s birthday night out, I got dressed up again and the beautiful Portia took these photos for me.
My dress is from SheInside, and is very very similar to the For Love and Lemons dresses I love but can’t really justify spending £100+ on. This one is only £25, and comes in an equally cool neon yellow lace. I continued the nude and black theme of the dress with this Anna Sui bag from LYDC – the perfect size for an evening and just about big enough for daytime too. I think it looks quite high end, at least in comparison to the £22 price tag. Finally I’m wearing these surprisingly comfortable heeled sandals from Public Desire, I’m usually more of a silver kind of gal but I love the gold straps on these! What do you think?
If you don’t want to try your luck, the shirt will be reduced to $11.99 on Romwe for one day only on Thursday 27th March! Get an extra 10% off with the code 10offblacklace.

Sometimes simple is best! At the weekend I wore this mega easy to put together ensemble, including one of my new favourite wardrobe additions in this lace trimmed cami top from ASOS. It’s super versatile; since I got it a few weeks ago I have worn it once on a night out and twice casually! I got it in the sale and so unfortuantely it has now sold out, but you can get a similar one here or here. I wore it with my favourite vintage ‘mom’ jeans and favourite sheer shirt, and some new sandals from Pretty Little Thing which I’m super excited to wear more once the weather improves. I accessorised this simple outfit with a variety of rings from eBay, Primark and one from Choies (with the white stone), a druzy pendant which I got on eBay, and Limecrime lipstick in Poisonberry.
I’m loving this faux leather backpack from Primark at the moment too. It’s now my go-to bag for university as it’s big enough for a folder or two, and although the straps do look a bit flimsy so I have been careful not to overpack it it has held up so far. I’m actually tempted to buy another in case it does give out, it goes with everything!
