Recently, the team at St Enoch challenged me to show you guys how I take my seasonal style from daytime to dancing time, and it gave me the perfect opportunity to finally up my game and think about how to do this realistically. After browsing the range of stores and thinking about how to put the into practice, I realised that it’s all about having one versatile piece! Something you can comfortably wear during the day and then dress up after dark (ooh, la la!).
I found my perfect day-to-night piece in the shape of a super floaty Princess skirt from Only at Debenhams that even Snow White herself would be proud of! In part one, I was showing off how I would wear this during the day, dressed down with sneakers and bright accessories.
Today, I’m giving this multi-tasking skirt the full razzle-dazzle treatment with a fun evening ensemble…
Look 2: Night
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to nights out (and ESPECIALLY Christmas nights out!), I can’t pile on enough sparkle. I don’t need to look at the label on this cropped jumper from H&M at St Enoch to know it’s at least 50% tinsel, and that’s why I knew I needed it in my life.
Debut at Debenhams can always be relied upon for special occasion shoes, and these gold glitter ones were practically made for shimmying to Slade at my next festive fiesta! I recently had my nails Swooned in lashings of sparkle to match, dontcha just love it when a plan comes together?
I was super excited to get my hair cut just in time for Christmas at #BLOW Finneston recently, and as always I’m thrilled with the result. There’s nothing like fresh nails and a brand new haircut to get you in the mood for party season.
If there’s a time of year to really go to town with kitsch accessories, I think Christmas might just be the one. I picked up a pair of oversized neon pink reindeer earrings from Claire’s and still had change from a fiver (I’ve nicknamed them Prancer and Dancer, because they are so huge that I think they deserved their own names!).
This pastel faux fur bag from Topshop at St Enoch is big enough to hold all my party time essentials and adds the perfect pop of colour. It’s so soft and fluffy that I kind of have to resist stroking it like a creepy bond villain…
Finally, I’m wearing a hair accessory from this month’s Crown and Glory Glitterati subscription box and my little parakeet from my visit to the Tatty Devine necklace making workshop earlier this year. Both are bright and shiny enough to pass for festive accessories (though I will be wearing them all year round, of course!).
I had a funny feeling that this skirt would be perfect for Christmas parties – and I’ll be putting it to the test a lot this season! After all, what kind of princess doesn’t like to twirl?
Have you found the perfect day-to-night piece this year? Do you ever name your jewellery too?
With twirls and tinsel,
With thanks to St Enoch
