To be perfectly honest, I have never been very good at dressing up for themed parties. You know, the ones with creative costume ideas like 'something starting with P' or 'childhood heroes' or 'nursery rhymes'.. I can't even come up with that many themes. I once went for Red Riding Hood as my childhood hero (not sure if that even qualifies), started with a red blazer, couldn't find a dress to match, and ended up wearing these floral jeans.. I promise I tried..

An event over the weekend went with 'Trapped in the Zoo' and called for 'elegance with a touch of wildness'. I left the outfit-brainstorming a little too late and wasn't about to turn up with a wildly-teased lioness hairdo, and couldn't find a dramatic black swan get-up.. For some reason then I turned to peacock feathers for inspiration, or at least the gorgeous mix of emerald greens I had in my mental image. Lo and behold, I walked right into the Sportsgirl sale and found this lovely maxi. Peacock-inspired, I say - score!
Slipped on some bracelets with hints of gold and turquoise, as well as my beloved Zara shoes. I love that these shoes have just the perfect amount of shimmer, without being too yellowy gold and in your face. They seem to be a little tricky to photograph though so I will try again, very soon!
Stay tuned for news about the ACTUAL event I was headed to!
