One Direction and an LBD

Last night, I was lucky enough to go to the One Direction: Take Me Home concert in the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena. It was an amazing show and that's most definitely reflected in the fact that I am struggling to talk this morning. 

I went to the concert with three of my friends and we had the most amazing time.
To begin with, I was really surprised at the quality of the support acts, especially '5 Seconds of Summer'. They're an Australian Band and reminded me a little of Mcfly during the early stages of their career. And as for One Direction, they were amazing! They put on such a good show and their voices were phenomenal.

Now, On to the outfit. My friends and I went for food before the concert, so when planning an outfit, I made it quite casual, but also made small changes in order for the outfit to be appropriate for lunch and the concert.
I began with a staple piece in my wardrobe; and LBD. The dress is quite a casual skater style; made out of black Jersey material, but the lace detail at the top really adds interest.
For a casual outer-layer, I added a chunky knitted cardigan. The neon print brought an aspect of youthfulness and fun to my outfit. 
To keep my legs warm, I wore simple suspender tights as I wanted a subtle break in between my black dress and the black on the tights, as opposed to opaque black tights, which would just blend in. 
On my feet, I wore frilly socks and simple black wedges, again to bring in a youthful feel to the look.

Dress- Local Charity Shop
Cardigen- Newlook
Tights- River Island
Socks- Topshop
Shoes- Newlook (Unfortunately, I'm not wearing my shoes. I'm not too sure why.)

Overall, I had the most amazing night with my friends. The concert was amazing and I'd recommend it to anyone!
