As blossom slowly flutters to our feet and pretty pastel shades are here, there and everywhere, it’s the perfect time to create a cute yet sexy outfit for your date night, as Hitched perfects below.
Back when it was dark and grey the SS15 catwalk looks promised us patchworks of vintage prints, bursts of sugary colours in a well assessed balance of prettiness and polish.
With a date night meal planned with Nik and the weather feeling positively like Spring like I decided to put together a Spring date night look – high street style!
Top: Forever21+ bodysuit £9 wearing a 1X
I like the neat, tucked in look when wearing a pencil skirt. The material of this bodysuit is thick – making it perfect for the still chilly spring evenings. Long sleeves also help with self-conscious arm folk like myself.
Shoes: Primark £9 wearing a size 4
In love with the pastel blue colour of these shoes and they cost less than a tenner. The heel height is reasonable meaning I can walk confidently. This prevents the husband shoe moan…
“Why wear shoes you can’t walk in?”
“Because they are pretty… dur”
Skirt: New Look £17.99 wearing a size 14
I love a pencil skirt dressed up or down and this one had lots of positive factors; the material (thick and stiff) and the pansy pattern were the main too.
Clutch bag: Primark £6
Big enough to hold everything and pretty. A cheap looking chain does come attached but this can be hidden inside the bag.
My extensions are currently a work in progress, so hair up was a must. Worn with a braid to the side and a messy bun.
Sometimes I favourite the groupie rock band look – dark lips and backcombed hair, but for this look I went pretty and pink. Contouring a base with the Sleek contouring kit (light). Eyes bare with Benefit Roller Lash mascara on my lashes, heavy blush and pink lips.
