One of the things you wanted to see more from me in the new year, was party and evening wear posts. Well, consider this the first request granted (and many more to come of course!).

I go out a lot during the week, be it for dinner, drinks with friends or dancing. As I’ve got older I do enjoy the ‘dinner and drinks’ part much more, and for that I often dress up in pants/trousers, rather than dresses. A great pair of tailored pants can look so elegant on a night out, especially when you add some leather and statement accessories, to really ‘vamp’ up the outfit. A leather jacket can really pull it all together, making it more edgy, yet still looking dressed up. My jaw nearly dropped when I found these gorgeous booties from REISS, on sale. To me, they are perfection. I love the navy/black combo and the scalloped edge in patent leather – so unique! They’re surprisingly comfortable (admittedly, my feet were killing on NYE after dancing for 3 hours), but that was extreme I guess.

From REISS, on sale here, £79.

I am wearing the shoes with leather jacket from TK Maxx (similar here), trousers from Filippa K, silk top from Selected Femme and gold watch from Sekonda.
