Capri (trousers) by night...

I know magazine articles are always going on about 'wardrobe classics' that can be transformed from day to night but let's face it, what works for one doesn't always work for the other. Luckily though you can't go wrong with a pair of nicely cut black trousers and I managed to do a quick change on Saturday before meeting my friends at the pub...

Trousers: Topshop, blouse: Pins & Needles at Urban Outfitters, necklace: Topshop,  bag: c/o Accessories Direct, shoes: Marks and Spencer 
I have barely stopped using this clutch bag since I got it but I have managed to tear myself away from it for one photo! This blouse has popped up in both summer and winter outfits and is definitely one of the most worn items in my wardrobe, it's perfect for adding just a dash of colour...


Another Topshop sale necklace! I love Topshop jewellery but would never pay full price for it, the quality is just not worth it...


I really need to experiment more with my hair as I'm sure you're fed up of seeing the same old curls by now... any suggestions to get me started?


My favourite part of the whole outfit though has to be these shoes. They were a bargain in the M&S sale and as they came with comfort insoles [hallelujah!] fitted, it meant I could add a bit of pizazz without ripping my feet  apart and I could walk in them! *heavenly chorus* 


Do you prefer the trousers for day or night? How could I style my hair differently?

Fab shoes!
I love your curls :) x

Gem said...

ooooh very nice, the shoes are fab.
I think a little clip in the side of your hair would be lovely for a night out. Bit of sparkle x

I think you styled the trousers really well both times! I do like the way you've tucked the blouse in here though.
I always think your hair is beautiful! Maybe for a bit of a change on the side where there's more hair from the parting you could twist the front section back for a bit of extra volume. And as Gem said a bit of sparkle never goes amiss so you could clip it back with something pretty :)

Natasha said...

This is such a lovely outfit for day or night I think. You look so chic and smart and those shoes are gorgeous Maria. You could try wearing your hair up? Though I'm not the best person to ask, I always wear my hair the same way! xxx

I knew I recognised those shoes! You look so lovely and feminine here, and I really like the delicate textures of the chiffon and the suede together. Maybe try braiding/French plaiting your hair? I think with your curls it could look really nice- mine looks kind of crap braided because its so flat but yours would be all thick and textured.

Love a good pair of black trousers for day-to-night things. I call em 7/8ths though, it sounds so much more chic than capris! :D
