Alphabite heels : Irregular Choice


Well it's certainly been one of those weeks which has sped by. I can't believe it's Saturday again already. I'm off to the seaside today but I'm worried that it's going to rain.

My outfit from Wednesday had to be suitable for work, then donating blood (so no tight sleeves) and then for an evening outdoor theatre performance. I figured that a quick change of shoes from the day to these heels would mean that I could add this orange cardigan for the evening to hide my blood donation dressing from the masses and make the orange and blue combination a little less odd.

I love this Emily + Fin dress. I already have this style - Norma - in another colourway, and I love it. Whilst I don't often plump for plain dresses, this bright blue colour caught my eye and I decided it would be perfect to wear with patterned cardigans or blazers, so I snapped it up in the recent sample sale we visited.

I still really like the style - the floral corsage detail is a winner - and the way it fits with the huge gathered skirt. A flipping bargain for £20, in my book.

How do you style a transitional outfit to take you from day to night?

And if you don't give blood already, I'd urge you to do so. I try to do it as often as possible but often can't due to medical issues - you can find more information here.

  2. Love the dress, the colour is gorgeous and looks so good on you. The heels are rather fab too.
    I try to give blood regularly. I got a bronze medal a while ago and am determined to get a gold (even though it'll take me years!).
    To go from day to night I often change my shoes but I'll also have a statement necklace or cocktail ring in my bag to for added bling.

    1. Well done on the bronxe medal - how many is that for? I think Wed was my 9th time, but I'm not sure if I'll be allowed to do it again - was close to fainting again and they made a right fuss. :( I hope I still can!
