Not a skinny jean or oversized scarf in sight - but totally overdressed for the pub!


A couple of nights ago now I went out with a group of friends to the pub. My thought process as to what to wear for the night went like this (I was in the shower at the time) "It's half term so I've been wearing jeans a lot. It would be nice to wear a dress. Oh I know, I have that Jaeger Boutique dress that I didn't really mean to keep and haven't worn so I'll wear that whether it really works or not because otherwise it's a waste."

With only little time to spare, having put it on I then decided to go for a pretty full on lipstick in terms of colour and then I added into the mix leopard print shoes AND a fur coat. Which is how I came to be totally over dressed for a trip to the pub - to the point that I didn't stand up once all night in case I drew attention to myself. But you know what? I'm glad I did it anyway as at least I've worn the dress now and it was definitely a change from jeans!

  2. That looks a lovely outfit. A big "oh no" to not wanting to stand up / stand out. I hate that feeling. Leaving the house all confident and then confidence deserting when its too late to do anything other than carry on. I bet people looking at you were admiring the way you dressed.
    :o)

  3. I like your attitude - have fun with clothes! You look great in that outfit. I went past my local primary school recently and there were dozens of women ALL in skinny jeans and big scarves. No individuality. There's even a blog someone showed me where the woman wears that. Every single time. Dare to be different - I bet other people appreciated your effort !! Xx

    1. Thank you - I just felt it! Imagine if we were living in the1940's - they'd have thought I was a right scruff bum without gloves or a hat! Funny how a dress, a pair of tights and some heels can seem so dressed up these days!!!

    1. Thanks Chris - well there is that to be said for it. It was such a shame to have it sitting there so I'm glad that I've worn it now. x

  7. You look gorgeous. Must of been admiring looks…always better to be over dressed than under dressed I think :)

    1. You know I'm sure you're right (about being overdressed rather than underdressed that is - not the admiring looks!) x
