To be perfectly honest, I wanted this post to go out on Monday in a bid to be consistent with my blog game. That being said, guess who tried to share her photos from her phone to her laptop and when it didn’t work, tried it again and again and again, leaving her laptop weak and withered as it tried to upload 1,382 photos, when in reality there were only about 100 or so. Technology – 1, Chloe Dangerfield – 0.
So here I am. Back at it again, and today I want to bring you something that holds an incredible power over which pieces I choose to buy and which pieces I leave on the rack for some other schmuck to pick up and look bloody fabulous in: Day/Night dressing. I am a picky little potato when it comes to clothes shopping – if I can’t think of 5 outfits I can wear it with, that piece will not be making its way into my wardrobe. Yep, I’m very cut-throat which is a blessing because I save some dolla being unnecessarily spent and can have a somewhat minimalist wardrobe.. sort of.
So when I find pieces that can be worn for day or night, lunch or party, work or weekend, I’m a very happy chappy, which is why I am bringing you a series of posts of day to night outfit inspiration. So without further ado..
Today it’s all about the emerald turquoise cigarette trousers. I picked these Topshop babies up when I was in Glasgow earlier this year and never have I ever found such a good fitting pair of trousers thanks to my short little stumps called legs.
As you can see, for my “day” look I’ve paired the trousers with a casual t-shirt (the greatest t-shirt I’ve ever bought if you ask me), a backpack and some very overexposed trainers also from Topshop (sorry that the trainers are hard to see very clearly, I’m still getting the hang of editing a photo without over-editing)! These trousers are pretty formal which is why I’ve gone for super casual vibes in everything else but as you can imagine they would be a great addition to the workwear wardrobe as well.
Ok, now I know this isn’t exactly a groundbreaking fashion moment and that these photos aren’t all matchy matchy with the day look, but I’m just bringing a little realness over here and showing you that I’m just a girl on a night out taking drunk selfies in the bathroom mirror (because dat mirror dough!) and have my equally drunk friend take some sassy pics of me. In all honesty, I’m surprised these photos turned out as well as they did!
So for this look – New Look top, New Look shoes, a lot of alcohol and a shit-tonne of overconfidence and sass, and voila!
I hope this has inspired you to get out there and buy some day and night pieces, or haul some old gems out from the back of the closet! As always, let me know what you think of this post, is this something you would like to see more of?
Have a great weekend, lots of love to you all!
