What I Wear When I Don't Know What To Wear



I never plan my outfits. *slow clap* 
Two weeks ago I was about to graduate and you could find me on twitter literally a couple of days before the 'big day' asking 'what shall I wear?'. 

I've never been the kind of girl who had her clothes laid out the night before ready for the next morning, oh no. I'm more like the last second outfit picker that ends up rushing about, looking for my purse two minutes before I'm supposed to leave the flat. 
Through the years though, I have learnt to spot what works for me and what I feel confident in no matter the occasion - and that's a little black dresses and a leather jacket. 

Can you have too many black dresses in your closet? Nope. 
Can you have too many leather jackets in your closet? Hell no. 


I will admit I'm not someone you'll see wearing a dress often, however a few weeks ago I fell in love with this website called Silk Fred (I'm not being sponsored by the way) and they stock the most wonderful mix of items from a variety of Boutiques. One in particular called Never Fully Dressed caught my eye as the model is GORGEOUS (can I be her please) and their dresses are so classy and easy to wear. My new life goal is to own every single one of their pieces, not even joking. Sorry bank account. I'm sure my grandma would approve though as she thinks I need to get my legs out more often! 

This dress is called ILLANA and it comes in three different colours - black, ivory and olive green. I find it extremely flattering as it highlights my waist without making the lower tummy too obvious, as it's all wrapped up but slightly wrinkled up and not structured. I would say that part of the body is my biggest insecurity so I can be very picky with my clothing because of that. In this frock though I feel like a little princess. 


I decided to pair it up with my leather jacket because I love the contrast of masculine and feminine and nothing adds a little edge like a worn leather piece. Mine is from Zara and I bought it last year - amazing investment for a good price. 

This was my outfit for graduation basically, and I have enjoyed dancing the night away and eating A LOT without worrying it will show my food baby too much. I also received so many compliments on the day. 
It's worth noting that it washes easily and it requires minimum care. LOVE IT. 
Payday is almost here and I'm so ready to hit up that site again and get shopping! I'd love to know what you like to wear whenever you haven't got a clue of what to wear.
