Discovering Hidden Gems

Dress: Zara, Heels: Primark

There is nothing better than discovering an item of clothing you forgot you had in your wardrobe resulting in a whole new outfit without having to step out of the door or even spend a single penny.

I've discussed before that I am a repeat offender when it come to repeating an outfit and if you are on a budget then that is what you gotta do. If it is good enough for the Duchess of Cambridge then I think it is good enough for us! 

This week I stumbled across this black and white woven dress from Zara at my parents house and obviously forgot it ever existed - which will teach me that I should have a wardrobe clear out before I purchase anything else. Clearly I got all excited as I had a brand new outfit for work the next day - you could say it my new uniform for a new term (month) at school. 

Unfortunately for me I haven't had the six weeks off, it has been six weeks of working near enough six days a week - not one to complain though!! It's made me think that even though I left full time education three years ago I still get the nerves and excitement for everyone else going back to school/college/university. Maybe the new month, darker nights, colder weather and the countdown to the festive period is giving me all the feels and I want to revamp my wardrobe a little. 

Going back to this particular outfit, I've never been one to venture to work wearing a fitted dress but I felt so comfortable in it - not going to lie, when I saw it on the hanger I did think it was more of a shift dress! 

I just love how it is the perfect day to night look, you can rock it with a pair of tights and flats for work and then swap your flats to heels and voila you are ready for a night on the town. 

Have you recently discovered something you forgot you owned?
