So today's post is all about what I wore for my leaving party. For those of you who are not aware, I recently upped and left my childhood city and now live 200 miles away. Something like that, of course, calls for a party! My leaving party was quite literally a piss up in a brewery. As it wasn't a fancy night out in the clubs or anything, I opted for quite a simple outfit.
I love my new Boohoo jacket. I think the peplum style is just so flattering: it hid the fact that I had to roll my top up as it was too long to wear down but my disco pants were too tight to tuck the top into them! OK, fake flab aside...the jacket really is gorgeous. Very sleek and professional looking, it fits me like a glove and it's a little more interesting than a standard black jacket because of the peplum. Disco pants and a top are pretty much my standard pub outfit, it was just a matter of choosing which top. When I was packing to move, I discovered this lovely lace Peter Pan collar top my sister donated to me in my drawers, and the problem of which top was instantly solved. Although I like it, as I've mentioned it's on the long side and it's actually quite annoying to wear, such a shame.
One of my favourite parts of the outfit however was my new Boohoo chelsea boots! These are so, so, so popular at the moment and I've totally been sucked in by the hype. I don't know if you know this, but I am not a heels girl. However, my love for this style of boots has made me determined to get over my weird aversion to heels. I love them and I got most of the way home before I had to take them off!
As I believe I've mentioned, I'm making 2014 the year I experiment with hairstyles so I'm introducing my lovely bow headband today. I adore this headband, but sadly, do not wear it anywhere near enough because it always parts my hair and reveals my ears - something I hate headbands doing! This means it was just perfect to pop on my head to finish off my miniature bun. Outfit complete!
My leaving do was such a lovely night. Loads of my family came down to see me off and some of my friends made it too which I was pleased about. Everyone had a good chat and catchup and I particularly liked that my drink was never empty. A total success!
What do you think of my leaving party outfit?
