Out My Comfort Zone

As most of you will know, all of my outfit of the day posts, inspirations and ideas are mostly casual wear- give or take with a blazer thrown in. When I was contacted by Weddington Way about a style challenge featuring a bridesmaid dress for Bridal Fashion Week, I considered not taking part due to it not in 'keeping' with the look and outfits I post on my blog. However, most people don't just wear casual outfits every single day of our lives, and sometimes (barely me) we actually have an occasion to attend where we have to dress up. Even though this post doesn't really 'fit in' with the outfits on my blog I thought it would be an interesting little challenge to myself to give my twist on formalwear, along with styling.

BAG: ZARA
LIPSTICK: MAC ANGEL

Shoes and bag
I was once told, always match your bag with your shoes, so since then i've always been conscience, especially when going to an event to keep to this! I went for white to break up the black dress and give it a bit of lift.

Hair
I wouldn't do anything different to my usual styling of hair, long, down and straight with the ends a bit curled as I'm not a huge fan of making your hair pieces of art as the desire to look fancy can sometimes detract away from the beauty of the day.

Makeup
Again would be simplistic and depending on the season of the occasion. A gorgeous glowy natural look with a nude lip such as MAC's angel would go down a treat.

These are just a few picks i would wear with this dress and how i would wear my hair and makeup for the October style challenge! 

Love,
