Black and White

Hello everyone!
Since I left my previous job in a convenience store I dont see my friends as much as I used to, with our working hours being completely different. So a much needed girls night out was on the cards! It's been a very long time since I've been out for drinks with my friends, as I'm trying to save my money when and where I can so we usually just go for a meal somewere or catch up at each others homes. 

I love the whole getting ready part of a night out, having everyone around helping each other to get ready, endless amounts of clothes on the floor/bed as we all change our outfits multiple times. I'm usually the one to help out with the outfits, I like adding on accesories and choosing statement jewellery. 

This night out was planned about two months ago, however, me being me completely forgot about it until a few nights before.  I had literally just cleared out my wardrobe of dresses that were either too big for me or I didnt wear so I had nothing to wear! It was a girls worst nightmare! So, I had to quickly dash up to the shopping mall near me and run about like a headless chicken trying to find a dress. 


I picked out this black shift dress from River Island for £25, it has cut out shoulders which for me is very different to what I would normally pick.  I dont usually show off my arms when I go out as I'm quite self concious of them. However, in this dress I wasn't actually bothered by them.
 I'm a size 10-12 and I normally buy dresses in a size 12 to make sure I'm comfortable in them. This dress however is a size 10 and very loose on me, I could have probably gotten away with buying a size 8 in this (wow I feel tiny!)  The sleeves on this come up quite low, not as far down to my elbow but it's a comfortable length. The overall length of the dress is quite short (I did wear my little tiny shorts on underneath just incase!) and normally I would constantly be on high alert on how high up my dress was, but I didnt so it was so nice to feel this comfortable in a dress. 

I borrowed this necklace from one of my friends as I felt it would look good against my dress. Having a plain dress I felt that I could have used a big statement necklace. I dont usually wear plain dresses so I wanted something 'pretty' on me. The necklace is a collection of white/cream coloured flowers on a small thin chain. I think this necklace finishes the look. It was bought from New Look but unfortunately I don't know how much it cost.

The shoes that I wore were from New Look as well, I bought them about two/three years ago for £9! Got to love a bargain :) I wear these shoes a lot as they are stupidly comfy and as they're black they go with a lot of my outfits. They cover the top of my feet but have cut out parts which make them look very pretty. Definitely one of my favourite pairs of shoes!

So there you are, my outfit for my most recent night out :)
