The New Going Out Outfit Formula

That ISN’T a ‘nice top and jeans’ – shocker, I know…

Millennials – want to hear some shocking news? Gen Z have a new going out outfit formula and it’s NOT ‘jeans and a nice top’. I know. I am shook to my core. This is my bread and butter. It’s all I’ve ever known since my mid-twenties when it came to leaving the house post 7pm (pre-25 it was the early 2010’s trusty body-con dress of course). Now I don’t think I’ll ever turn my back on jeans and a nice top fully – it’s a classic for a reason – however I’m always up for trying something new. Who What Wear had some ideas and I thought I’d add a few more into the mix. I’ve broken my finds down into three categories  – stripes, patterned and textured – all sitting within a neutral palette that I would 100% feel comfortable wearing. Pair them with something simple on top – a black vest top, a cream cardigan, something linen with a front-tie detail – and you’re good to go…

What to have for lunch today! I saw @emthenutritionist make prawn tacos, so I made prawn tacos 😂 

INGREDIENTS 
- 1 tbsp oil 
- 1 small pepper chopped 
- 1 carrot grated 
- 2-3tbsp tomato puree (depends on how much veg you’re using - might need a bit more oil at this stage too) 
- 1/2 pack prawns, about 75g (use raw, heating up precooked was fine but they weren’t as tasty! Cook them for 4 mins if raw, 1 min if precooked) 
- 2 wraps 
- whatever filling you’d like (here I used garlic mayo, rocket and avocado 
- any toppings you fancy (I used spring onions and everything but the bagel seasoning)

The weekend 📸
- My favourite outfit of the weekend that I wore to lunch with a friend (@mokshacaffe does THE BEST brunch). 
- Unicorn cupcakes for one of Ralph’s besties. 
- Feeling the burn at @reformercollective. 
- I forgot just how WONDERFUL this @avene product was. Last time I had PD it cleared it up so well, so I’ve been slathering it on all day (and doing a new formula of @skinandmehq in the evening) and well…
- We’re healing 🥰
- Been making this beef stew for years! Will post the recipe in my stories. 
- He’s a cupcake making (and eating!) machine 😂
