OOTD: A Casual Affair

Shirt: Forever 21 | Jeans: Asos | Heels: Primark | Sunglasses: New Look | Clutch: Koko Couture* | Watch: Camden Watch Co.* | Necklace: Accessorize

Stuck on a nice date outfit? Don't worry, so was I!
I like to think I dress pretty well, but I have a horrible habit of running late, which is one of my all-time pet peeves, strangely enough. And it's worse if you have someone waiting on you! You have to be on time and look your best.

This happened to me recently, and although I usually plan outfits beforehand (after meticulously checking my AccuWeather app), my room looked as if a whirlwind had swept through it. With maybe 10 minutes before the set time, I just grabbed my Asos Girlfriend jeans and a crisp white shirt, added nude heels, a statement necklace and clutch, and bam! Sorted! In the end, the other person was even later than I was, but I was pretty proud of myself for having cleaned up pretty nicely so fast.

After this experience, I've realised I really need to invest in more one-pieces instead of so many separates. Tops and bottoms often go missing/are squished in my closet, while I always take care to hang up my dresses and playsuits for easy viewing.

Have you ever had that experience? What do you usually opt for for dates? Let me know in the comments! x


  1. Great date night outfit Laura.. I love how you've styled the shirt tucked half in. It adds a lot of interest to such a basic wardrobe staple. I'm the same with taking more care of my dresses, they're easier to throw on in a rush too rather than trying to create an outfit from separates x

  6. Love this outfit, Laura. I actually wore a simple white shirt on my most recent date night too! Easy to overlook as I usually just wear mine for work but they work so well with jeans and heels. I love the half in half out look too :) x
