The London Look - Part one...

Oooh it's been a busy week, hence why I haven't posted since Monday. This week myself and a whole host of blogging babes were invited to London for a swanky dinner at Balthazar to celebrate the launch of Simply Be's new collaboration with Look Magazine. I'll talk a little bit more about the event itself and the collection in part two.

Wednesday was a gorgeous day, so off I trotted to London feeling fabulous and wearing a banging outfit. What did I forget to do? Get any pics of it. Typical! I did manage to get a top half shot of the gorgeous cardi I picked up from Sainsburys last week though.


Behold the cardigan of beautifulness. I also wore my favourite necklace of all time, "the beast". I always get asked about it and on this trip alone I think at least 10 complete strangers commented on it! I got it from New Look just before Christmas, and it quickly sold out online, but I went into my local New Look the other day and they have it on stock again, so it's definitely worth a try if you're in the market for neck breaking, sight blinding amazingness!

BEST. SEAT. EVER. Let it rain, let it rain, let. it. rain

On arrival to le big smoke, I headed to Oxford Street to meet up with favourite fashion gal and my good lady boss Rivkie from SLiNK Magazine/Boutique and my other good lady boss Debra of SLiNK Boutique, we had lunch with cool kiwi chick Lena at YallaYalla which is basically mine and Rivkie's date place, we always go there and share extraordinary amounts of food! 

I then went back to the hotel, checked in and went for a cuppa with the beautiful Naomi of Diamonds and Pearls, who is always the best advice giver and reassurer and all round lovely funny person (sorry gushing now). We then headed off to the dinner where I met my sister from another mister, Rosie of A Rose Like This

She so pretty, Y U SO Pretty?
Like I said, I'll talk a bit more about the collection and dinner in the next post, so I'll leave you with my outfit for the evening. I went for a crop top and maxi skirt combo, accessorised with sandals, huge necklace and big clutch! Easy, simple, comfy and maybe a little sexy?

I wore: Top - F&F (similar at Dorothy Perkins) // Skirt - H&M// Sandals - Primark// Necklace - New Look// Bag - American Apparel 


A quick note about the maxi skirt. A big chunk of H&M's main range on the website goes up to a 22/24, this skirt would easily fit 26 possibly 28 it has bags of stretch in it, the waist band is quite thick and it has pockets! To top it all off, it's a bargainous £12.99. If you're looking for cool wardrobe basics, it really is my go to place. Don't head for the plus section though, it's a bit turd. It's getting better mind, but of you're around a 24/26 it's really worth taking a look at the main range.

  2. Great outfits!
    I've recently discovered too that some of the main range at H&M fits my size 22/24 top half as well - which was very exciting considering they're such a decent price, so I'll definitely have to check out the skirts too. Cheers xx
