OOTD – Airport to… Birthday Party

Not very long ago I was faced with the all too common fashion dilemma of going straight from an airport to a party… what to do!?

 

As you may know I am a huge playsuit fan for their versatility as a smart/casual look. So, this day was no exception. I opted for a black stretch fabric playsuit as the base.

 

For the flight I paired it with a loose fitting slouchy baby blue top to keep warm in the aircon and give a more casual feel. Of course flats are a must for travelling, and then I cinched it in with my favourite wide gold waist belt. I love having tops half tucked in at the front because you maintain the shabby loose feel but still keep your waistline – it’s basically a homemade dropped hem!

Then for the party I simply took of the blue top and added a pair of killer heels! The catsuit was party appropriate with a low neckline and matching gold jewellery.

The final touch was some extra eyeliner. I love to do smokey eyes with the MAC liquid eyeliner pen (it’s like a felt pen so super accurate) and the Rimmel pastel eyeliner which has a smudger at one end to get a nice smokey eye. These pens are both really compact and totally transform my makeup into a night look.
