Drinks with the girls....

A rare occurrence last night, I went for drinks and nibbles with the girls at Panizzi it's a cute little wine bar, deli type place close to where I live.


They do a variety of sharing platters, so we went Greek and got stuck in! Accompanied by several vodkas (not so Greek!). I've only lived in Beverley for 5 months, but since moving here I've made two great friends in the form of Andrea, who runs local business Gartons of Yorkhire (also my business partner at Miss Poppy's Tea Party) and Pauline, who like me only moved here recently as her husband is based at the local army/airforce base as a SAR pilot, when Pauline isn't working very hard as a Sales Executive she writes a fab blog about her passion, food.

The conversation, drink and laughs flowed all night. I think I put them both off child birth and children for life (not my intention), and theres a possibility we may have scared the staff with our outrageous stories of lesbians, death and pillows (hmmm don't ask!!)

Of course I need to talk about the outfit, I went for comfort, and it unintentionally ended up being all black, so this might not be the most inspiring outfit post, but thought I'd share.



I wore simple black leggings with a black cross over, puff ball dress from New Look's Inspire range (about 4 years old) and accessorised with Black leather knee high boots from La Redoute, skinny belt from Dorothy Perkins and huge chunky ring also from Dorothy Perkins.



It was a bit nippy outside so I threw on my old faithful leopard print cardi from Simply Be which I've also had for about 4 years! I think it really lifted the outfit, and is still in great condition considering I've worn it to death!!





Do you have any old faithfuls in the wardrobe that have stood the test of time?

  1. Like you (I think) I have a pair of black knee high boots, but from Evans - my utter JOY when I realised that I could get boots that actually fitted me was unbridled! I wear them to death every autumn/winter/spring but I'm good about getting them re-heeled and re-soled (which reminds me, it's probably that time of year when I should do so) so they've lasted.

    I also have a fab shortie blazer from Monsoon that's white and very dark navy that goes with any- and everything which I wear with heels to dress up smart jeans. I also have this top for when I need some va-va-voom :)

  2. Heyy!

    I have a leopard print coat i've had for a few years now, that comes out during the winter! I'm really bad with clothes though... I normally buy cheap, which normally doesn't last very well!

    You look lovely! I found a similar dress from Simply Be recently (which is now in the sale) which I know I will wear to death these next few months!

  3. Love that top Wide Eyed!! Bardot styles dont suit me, but bet it looks fab on you!!

    Thanks Kat, even though it was all jersey and stretchy, I still felt dressy in it!
