OOTD: A Tailored Look

Topshop Salt and Pepper Coat on Rock On Holly

Well, this is a far cry from my usual ripped jeans and leather jacket!

A few weeks ago I got an unexpected email from Next (actual NEXT!!) saying that I had been picked to be their Blogger of The Month! YEY! They had seen a nautical themed outfit post that I had written which featured some of their items and really liked it! (Proud blogger moment). As a result, I was rewarded with a voucher to spend online. (Most kind)

I took advantage of a recent formal occasion to make my inner hipster "grow up" and decided to style up this gorge, tailored jumpsuit.

This beautiful all-in-one is from Next's A/W collection and just feels really luxurious as soon as you put it on. At £55, I think this is really reasonably priced. I actually think I'm going to have to head in store and see if they have just a trouser version of this, as the pants were so comfy and smart. I think this makes a great alternative to a little black dress and could easily be dressed up or down for a work event. 

Style Advice: One of my fave bloggers is Lizzy from Shot On The Street, and I love how she recently styled up tailored trousers with a casual top and trainers.. (bookmarked that look for later!)

You could easily dress down this look by layering a jumper over the top and adding a pair of flats.

Oh it might look like I have it altogether here, but little does everyone know I painted my nails in the car park before we arrived at the venue... #bloggerprobs

Luckily, this stunning clutch bag from Biba distracts from my dodgy nails! Biba are well known for their luxe, detailed items and accessories. This little shimmering beauty, is just stunning and is fab for adding a touch of class to any outfit.

Would you wear an jumpsuit for a special occasion? Or would you prefer a dress?
