Thank you for all of your lovely messages on my last post, making big decisions and changes can be overwhelming (understatement of the century!) but I am really excited to see what the future has to hold! As soon as my initial wave of enthusiasm subsided, my first thought was what on earth do I wear?! I didn't get much of a chance to scope out the office when I was in for my interview but that hasn't stopped me picking up (more than) a few pieces for my new working wardrobe! ;) I spotted this top in the Dorothy Perkins sale and although I have tried not to wear any of it before I start (it gives me something to look forward to!) this was the basis of a perfect date night look to celebrate. We had a pretty early dinner so I didn't want anything too fancy so jeans and a top were ideal. I really love the length of this top, it is super flattering and I feel really tall when I wear it which is never a bad thing! I have to say that Dorothy Perkins is not a shop I think to look in regularly but having a browse reminded me how good their clothes are, especially for work and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more bargains...

Smoky eyes always make me feel dressed up but they can feel a bit 'much' when it is still light outside so I stuck to a swipe of liquid eyeliner instead. Max Factor's Glide & Define liquid eyeliner seems to be the only one that works on me but I would love to hear your recommendations. I'm (still) a novice but it's definitely something I want to finally master this year! 'Julianne's nude' by L'Oreal is another of my make-up favourites. It never photographs very well but it is pretty peachy on me and is perfect for when you want a subtle colour that won't vie for attention with your other make-up.
The top had a waist belt included but I can't ever get that type of belt fastening (double D-ring FYI) to work so I ended up knotting it instead- much less faff! This gorgeous burgundy nail varnish is the 'Die Another Day' shade from the Opi 'Get Bonded collection' which I recently rediscovered in my vast collection. I thought a break from my beloved Essie shades was well overdue! ;)
Which is your favourite liquid eyeliner? What do you wear on date night?
