Pippa’s Picks: Day To Night Style (U Magazine)
Umagazine, Published :: April 2014
Hi Everyone! Like some of you I’m a busy working mum. I’m constantly in and out of town for work and meetings. I live about half an hour outside of the city centre (in da country!!) so on days that I’m in there during the day then meeting my friends for an early bird and catch up, it’s not always convenient to get home and change. Sometimes I’d have Ollie with me during the day, then Brian would take him home from town (tag team!). So I try to dress comfortably, casual and of course still looking chic! I’ve chosen two different looks that will bring you anywhere, and all you’d have to change to bring you from day to night would be your shoes, bag and top! Bingo! You’re cocktail ready before you can say, “Appletini please!”.
SO READ BELOW FOR BRINGING YOU FROM DAY INTO NIGHT…
From the office to the party in a few easy steps, Pippa talks changing your look with accessories…
Lip Lover in 311 and 312, €22, Lancôme.
I’m lip gloss mad, like most women. When I see a new one I have to try it. When I set my eyes on these new Lip Lovers from Lancôme I instantly loved them. What’s great about these new beauties is they are a lip gloss with excellent pigment, so there’s really no need for lipstick underneath. They have a high shine finish, and unlike some glosses you won’t be left picking your hair off your lips all day. They come in 18 different shades and my favourite is Rose Gracieuse.

I’m loving this coat. Oasis do amazing coats every season, this one is no exception. It’s just the perfect coat to have. The colour is gorgeous, it’s a rich cream that will suit everybody. The length is good. The draped collars are very elegant and I love that you can tie the belt tight or leave it casually open. These skinny jeans from River Island are so comfortable they feel like leggings on. These ankle boots from Oasis are very comfortable with a small bit of heel. The top from Warehouse is a pretty floral print in a soft cotton material.

I think this is a great look, very simple and easily changed into. The nude shoes are another staple must-have. Last summer I lived in nude shoes, I wear them with all of my jeans and dresses. Theses ones were so comfy when I put them on and a great nude colour too. The blouse from Warehouse I love. That yellow colour is so vibrant and fresh. If you’re not used to wearing brighter colours just try them on and be open minded, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. This gorgeous little soft clutch is so cute, again I love the bright colour. The coat above would go perfectly with this outfit too.
