Ballerina bun...

I wore this outfit on Saturday night and I was totally overdressed for the pub, but sometimes it is nice to get dressed up for no reason at all and I would rather be overdressed than under-dressed! The main reason why I wanted to wear this dress though, was because I unearthed it in a box which we hadn't yet unpacked (along with some other wardrobe favourites which will be reappearing on here soon)

Dress: Miss Selfridge, tights: Sainsburys, shoes: Office
I bought this dress in 2010 in one of the infamous Miss Selfridge sales and I originally wore it for Christmas but it has been pulled out for various family meals since because it is just so pretty. I love the blush pink/nude coloured underskirt and the swooshy skirt skims nicely over a food baby (always a win in my book!) 


I usually wear my hair up with this dress as the collar is such a feature and I used my doughnut hair ring to create a truly mahoosive ballerina inspired bun. This hairstyle is potentially a bit severe but the wispy bits I couldn't control made me look less scary (I hope!) Also another hairstyle to add to my very limited follicular repertoire, I never know how to mix it up...


My new favourite make-up look, liquid eyeliner and a nude lip, I will get better with liquid eyeliner, I will!


Do you prefer being overdressed or under-dressed? What do you wear to the pub?

I always like to be over dressed. Dresses and heels are much more fun than jeans etc. I don't feel like me unless I'm quite dressed up.

I would wear this to a pub and take a little cardi for the walk home :) I wear similar things to work, pub, cinema, nights out but just add black tights for work and more lippy on a night out xx

Pippa said...

Becca said...

I always over dress for the pub too! I always think what is the point in having so many pretty dresses if you hardly ever get to wear them ;) Love this dress on you!

I think you look really lovely, the dress is really sweet. Also I can't leave the house without a bit of eyeliner...it's my one piece of essential make up!

This looks great, maybe everyone else was underdressed <3

Nomad said...

Pretty dress! I like overdressing. At work for example, people dress down a bit - then they see me come in in my heart print skirts and gingerbread man print dresses etc, lol. As long as you're comfortable that's all that matters :) x

Oh Maria you look lovely! I wish I still had enough hair to do a bun like that!
And don't worry about the liner, it all comes with practice! Finding one that you can use as well is really important.
