It had been a long time between drinks*. How long, you ask? A looooooooooooooooo(take a deep breath)oooooooooooooong time. Longer than I can remember accurately. At the very least it had been weeks. Probably months. Maybe even years… okay not years but that’s what it felt like!
So as you can imagine I was pretty darn excited to be heading out on the town with a new girlfriend of mine for drinks. So excited, I had planned in my head a few days out exactly what I was going to wear, which for me is a pretty big effort.
The challenge, though, was that I had to factor in the horribly cold conditions facing me – I think it ended up being about six degrees by the time I left the apartment. But, looking on the bright side, it did give me the perfect excuse to wear my brand new Michael Kors camel coat. Challenge accepted!
The coat had arrived from the States only a few days earlier, to my utter delight and excitement. I had been searching for a caramel or tan woollen wrap coat for months and when I saw this beauty online I feel in love. It was everything I wanted from a winter coat.
I decided to style it with a black, long-sleeved Sportscraft dress, black tights, my ankle boots and a gorgeous new Forever New scarf in leopard print. The final touch was red lips courtesy of Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion. There’s just something about red lipstick that is so darn sexy and with that final touch I was good to go!
Delicious champagne and awesome company made for a great night. Next time though it won’t be so long between drinks…
*Clarification: When I say say ‘long time between drinks’ I do refer to a night out as opposed to actual drinks. I’ve had plenty of those recently while sitting on my couch in my pjs…
