1 Dress - 3 Ways To Wear.. Part 2

Good morning!

If you saw yesterday's post, then you'll know that I've set myself the little challenge of wearing 1 dress, and styling it in 3 different ways for different occasions.
(You can catch up with Part 1 HERE)

Today I'm styling it up for a night out, I'm actually wearing this for my boyfriends upcoming gig.
Team it with an elegant necklace, and a pair of fab gold heels and we're done! Simple, but effective. I'll probably throw on a leather jacket too, biker chick cool to keep me warm!

Necklace - Marks & Spencer

1 Dress - 3 Ways To Wear.. Part 1

Hi everyone! 
Today's post is the aftermath of a lunch time browse in Zara.. I'm becoming quite the Zara FREAK! I can't seem to go a whole week without a purchase lately (someone give my hand a slap!) 
But get that guilty conscience the next day when the exciting impulse wears off.. 
But as my mum always says to me, if you can find something to wear it with then it's a keeper! 

And I can literally think of SO MANY ways that this dress can be styled. It's always great to have a really versatile piece in your wardrobe. Especially if you're someone one like me who runs out of clothes like nobody's business, and sometimes has to wear the same things closer together than they'd like. Dresses like this make our lives so much easier! And at just £25.99 you most definitely cannot complain!

And so over the next 3 days I'll be wearing this dress, but in 3 different ways. 

Here's part 1!
Perfect for a gorgeous Spring day like today, I'm teaming the dress with this AMAZING Zara crop top.. This wavered hemline is going to be so big this season and I've already stocked up with a few different styles!
I just love how unusual it is. I'm not usually one to go for crop tops but I just couldn't walk past this one, and I'm glad I didn't because it is the PERFECT match for this dress.

This is by far one of my favourite outfits!

I've been on the hunt for a little blank jumpsuit for literally a whole year now! And when I saw this on ASOS I fell in love. High waisted, T-Shirt top, mesh sleeves AND cut outs?! Yep, perfect!

Whilst I do really like the style of this jumpsuit, I'm not sure the overall fit is ideal for me. It's made from jersey, making it the most comfortable outfit I've worn in a really long time, but it's almost that comfy that I feel I've got my PJs on! (The most stylish onesie I've ever seen) 
And I do feel like a little pancake bum! I just think it hangs a little unflattering.. 

Jumpsuit - ASOS

So what do you think? Is it a keeper, or do I get rid?

Mr Saab

Elie Saab can do no wrong. My obsession is hitting the roof right now!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again every season.. (Until it finally happens) The day I get to play dress up in a beautiful Elie Saab dress, will be the day this girls dream one and truly comes true!

Giving Me Flutterbies

This outfit today (which is actually from a few days a go) is a classic example of Hollie not paying attention to the weather man. 
Let me just say that this outfit didn't exactly start out looking like this, it began its day as just a cute Primark vest top, Zara skinny jeans, and a little pair of flats. The reason for this being, the sun was literally cracking the flags! I was sitting at my window and the sun was actually hot! Not warm, no, HOT!

So off I go on my little way to take some outfit snaps. That was until I realised major goosebumps are not a great accessory for a post, so running back in, my trusty Topshop leather jacket was sure to warm me up a little. No. I could go on forever. But a makeshift snood, and a pair of boots later, this is what I was left with. It isn't the exact image I had foreseen what I thought up this outfit.

Why I didn't give up on it completely, go home and try again something else I'll never know. The reason for why I'm POSTING this outfit, is another thing I'll never bloody know but Hey Ho!

And it obviously haven't learnt a damn thing from this experience because today I'm strolling around in a mesh top with nothing but a bando underneath. And it's raining. Just like the weather man said it would. I think I need to write off today.
Goodbye day.

Persunmall Wishlist

Hi everyone! 
Today I want to share a wishlist of mine with you all. I think its so much fun compiling wishlist posts, putting together those pieces that sit in your online shopping basket for weeks until payday! 
With going away on a City Break to Paris in a few weeks time, I've figured its about the right time to start deciding what I want to take with me, and obviously that means there's a perfect excuse to purchase a shed load of new clothes and accessories, no? 

Everything I'm looking to buy online has to fit the brief of "IS IT PARIS?" And its so FUN! Paris is one of the most beautiful places in the universe.. And it's the perfect place to really take in a new style. So I've taken to Persunmall to help me choose some key Paris pieces..

How cute is this layered skirt?! I can see it now, standing in front of the Eiffel Tower, with a black lace cami, and sexy black stilettos! And how about teaming this cool floral cut out T, with a ripped pair of blue jeans and the gorgeous green statement coat? YES! I think a few days of my trip are well and truly sorted!

I hope you enjoyed this wishlist, I know I love reading them on my favourite blogs.. 
See you sooon!
