Another work appropriate outfit of the day for you. This time it's courtesy of Dorothy Perkins.

As you know, I am a bit partial to their dresses. I love wearing them for work and with the addition of the right heels and accessories, they can also work well for evening. 

That day/night outfit switch is actually the concept behind their edited dress selection that they currently have on their site. The idea is that you can choose any item from the collection and be comfortable that it will work well for the "party season".

They have some nice picks and they sent me the Bardot. 

I love the length of this. It's that perfect demure fit - good for Dubai during the daytime but easily interpreted as evening wear. 

In both instances I kept it simple - a little cropped jacket to house the arms during the day, flat shoes to aid walkability and a big tote to sling everything I need on the go. For evening it's just a case of ditching the massive bag, using a clutch, and adding some serious heels. 

The Day Look

Jacket: Topshop (a couple of seasons old)  
Dress: Dorothy Perkins - Link!
Shoes: Zara 
Bag: Celine
Necklace: New Vintage by Kriss - Link!
Sunglasses: House of Harlow

The Night Look

Same dress
Heels: Christian Louboutin Pigalle - Link! 
Clutch: Alexander Wang

As always, I definitely recommend having a look at the DP dresses. I have mentioned this may times but the cotton fabric they use for this style wears so nicely and belies the price tag. 

Apologies for being such a picture heavy post - like I said the other day, this is my new favourite photo location :)

    1. I totally agree, the sheer panel makes this dress. It's also really sexy but the dress stays completely conservative at the same time.

  21. It looks so easy to transition this dress from day to night - love the simplicity of it!
    Happy Wednesday Laura xoxo

  22. I love this look- the dress is so versatile...DP's is definitely one of my fav shops!
