OOTD: Casual date night

Last night my other half took me out for our first date night of 2014. It was well needed and a lovely evening.
We headed over to Kings Cross to play some pool but before hand grabbed some dinner in Nandos (yum) I overindulged in a massive slice of chocolate cake for pudding lol. 
After dinner we walked round the corner to play pool, it was lots of fun and after loosing the first game I went on to win 3-1 wohoo lol. 
I ended up experimenting with my hair and went for a 1950s inspired look last night, I was happy with the end result, it was something different for me yet really casual.


My outfit was casual and comfortable. Luckily enough it wasnt' that cold out in London so I didn't need a jacket, plus we were constantly on the move playing pool and things anyway.

As i said before my hair is 1950s inspired and the only thing on my face is my MUA intense colour lipliner in 'Red Drama' paired with Rimmel moisture renew lipstick in 510 'Mayfair red lady'.

My khaki top is short sleeved with a nice zip detailing on the back and small gold studs around the colar, it has a satin texture to it and fits really comfortably. Both the top and the dark grey cardigan with small gold sequins are from River Island.
My black jeggings were a Christmas present from my other half and they were from Dorothy Perkins. These jeggings are amazing, they are soft, stretchy and so comfortable, so much so that I rushed out on boxing day and grabbed another pair hehe.
As we were going to be on our feet most of the night I completed my outfit with my black leather converse which are from office. With the threat of rain looming i wanted to play it safe with footwear and not only are these super comfy they are waterproof.
I took with me my new satchel style bag from New Look. Ive been desperate to get my hands on a new bag for ages and after searching the shops I found this one and fell in love with it. 
I will be doing a seperate post on 'whats in my bag' very soon :)

There we have it lovelies my first OOTD post let me know what you think x
