OOTD | Making Occasionwear Versatile Marks and Spencer | Casual

Skirt: New Look
Socks: Topshop
Boots: Barratts
Hat: Primark

Following on from my post yesterday where I styled a Marks and Spencer dress for their styling challenge, today is the day for the casual re-take!!
I used the same dress and bag but in different ways, so I hope you like. Of course this is just one way of putting a casual spin on things for example, a day out at the movies or shopping etc.

Oh… if you missed out on my first post, check it out here 🙂

What I did was pop my faux-leather skater skirt over the top of the dress and roll the bottom of the dress a little. It gave an all round great casual look. You can see a little bit of the the skirt peeping through the bottom which is mainly because of the wind… oh my… it was wild that day. I did not want to flash to my neighboring onlookers. However I do like the peplum/pencil skirt look so I think it worked quite well.
With my Chelsea boots I wore my Spring inspired frilly socks which are super CUTE! The pictures of the other colours are on my instagram ‘@mintyessence’ My beanie hat was like a cherry on the top for this laid back feel and accessories like this are great for transitioning between a smart-to-casual outfit.

I really enjoyed putting together this outfit… hope you like.

Which look did you prefer?
