I went to a family friend's 50th birthday party on saturday. After a morning full of first-aid courses (which I've done countless times, grr) that last thing thing I wanted to do was go to a birthday party. Luckily, I'd had the foresight to put together an outfit before I left the house and to leave it in the car ready. This did not go entirely as planned, because I ended up falling asleep in the car and having only 3 minutes to get changed and do make-up!! So difficult to get out of skinny jeans and into a dress whilst in a car whilst trying to maintain your dignity!
I love mixing and matching jewellery, don't we all, but my latest love is this vintage rose necklace. I found it in a box of jewellery that had been moved through 'tidying.' I've acquired a few pieces that I'll post together soon!
Dress - H&M
Cardigan - Peacocks
Tights - Primark
Shoes - Clarks - Black, patent leather heels with laces
All jewellery is vintage
Nail Varnish - Nails Inc. Shorditch
Overall, I love this simple, chic outfit to throw on, two pieces of clothing and whatever extras you like!
