Wardrobe Peek: A Friday Night Out

Where I work, we like a good trip to the pub and a drink (or five) on a Friday night every now and then, and this Friday was a special occasion - we were saying goodbye to one of our Graphic Designers! He is moving onto bigger things so we had to wave him off in true Waltons' style, and this is what I wore.

Top: New Look, Belt: New Look, Wet Look Leggings: AX Paris, Boots: Warehouse

Yes, an overload of New Look once again! Retailers really need to start investing in Grimsby a bit more... but then again maybe not as I would be permanently poor... anyway!

I got this top about a year or so ago and I absolutely adore it. I loved it so much that I bought a bigger size because they didn't have mine in! Luckily I can team it with this belt to pull it in a bit; the belt came with a dress I bought from, yes New Look, a couple of years ago and it is just so handy!

I'm dying for a pair of disco pants and as soon as I have a little bit of spare cash I sure am going to treat myself! So in the meantime, I have dug out my old wet look leggings which were from AX Paris within a concession at House of Fraser - I thought I'd out these away for good!

My black ankle boots were an absolute bargain! They are a good two, maybe three, years old and I bought them from the Shoe Studio Young Fashions concession at House of Fraser where I worked at the time. They were in the sale, had big reductions, then I was able to get my staff discount on top - oh how I miss that!

And what I like best about this outfit... I didn't have to spend a penny on it! As much as I love buying new clothes (and don't get to do it as much as I'd like!), it does feel good to find some forgotten gems, and even though some purchases may seem a bit 'unnecessary' at the time, bringing them back out again just proves they were worth the investment!

  2. Ah I'm with you on the need for disco pants, I feel I need a pair but the price is a bit ridiculous for my budget! These are a great alternative thought, you look great
