BUTTERFLY FLUTTERBY: 'SMART CASUAL' #OOTN

Cardi: Primark
Top: Primark
Trousers: Topshop
Shoes: Newlook
Clutch: Primark
Necklace: Topshop
I thought I'd catch-up with you all and show you what I've been rocking on a night out recently!

I'm usually more of a Dress or skirt lady when it comes to dressing up for a night out, but I decided to go for a smart-casual look for my besties 21st. I basically had no idea what to wear, so after hours of trawling round the shops, in true 'Rachael style' I ended up going for clothes I already had at home - typical!

This is just a wee #OOTN I put together. The trousers were a brill Topshop buy. I turned up the bottoms - partially because I'm short, and I quite like the turned up trousers look. The top was quite the impulse buy when I was in Glasgow for another friends 21st and realised I'd forgotten my 'going out' outfit (I'd forget my head if it wasn't attached) and I thought it looked chic, expensive, but truthfully cost me the whole of £5!

I thought the outfit needed a statement piece necklace so I picked up this tin-whistle looking necklace from Topshop for £15 (with 20% off)  and added another Primark piece in the form of the stylish yet affordable clutch. I know, I have so many bag's, but it was £4 so I couldn't say no, and it fit's sooooooo much in!

I finished off with a pair of peep-toe wedges and a la'al cardi that was my Mam's. Along with the butterfly top, the bracelet's she gave me and her cardi - it was certainly a 'Florence inspired' outfit! (Florence being my Mam!)

So, what do you all think of my smart-casual look for a night out? I also used this look, minus cardi and plus blazer for for a job interview and got the job - so it's a versatile look - which is always my favey!

What's your take on 'Smart Casual'?
