Ladies what lunch

Yesterday I popped down to The Ampersand Hotel in South Ken for an afternoon tea with my sister and my bestie. How civilised! Actually, it was a little bit special because we went for the Science Afternoon Tea, which had lots of quirky bits in it including chocolate dinosaurs, beakers of punch and dry ice (which got a big oooOOooooOOOoohhh from the other diners when it came out).

I wore my Scarlett and Jo dress for the occasion. Actually, it was the first outing for this dress. I'd missed out on buying it the first time round and then scoured eBay for weeks until it finally came up! It's a great length and so pretty; I can see I'll be getting a lot of wear out of it. Excuse the hair, it doesn't do well in humidity. Also, my sister pointed out that these shoes basically make it look as if I'm going bare foot and she's right, they do! 

We went to the V&A afterwards where I bought an obscenely large pair of earrings (standard) and popped into the Disobedient Objects exhbition which I'd really recommend. To be honest I'd recommend the V&A to any visitor to London, it's such a nice museum and so vast that there really is something for everyone. 

I hope you've all had a good weekend. Chat soon!

Comfy Casual

It's been a while hasn't it? There's been a lot going on, namely starting a new a job which I'm loving, but is taking up a lot of mental energy. Honestly, this month I just haven't wanted to blog. The sane part of me is fine about that and the insane part of me is guilty about it all.

New job is also ensuring that 5 days of the week I'm in business attire, which means I only have TWO days in which to express myself! Cue 15 outfit changes per day.That said, today I was working from home so I had a dress down fest. I also had to put on a big jumper because I was having a shiver fest.

Nothing is new; I bought this cardi back in 2010 from Peacocks and it's turned out to be a winter staple for me. All snuggly and warm and, when not styled properly, like something a crazy art teacher would wear. My Simply Be leopard print sneakers always get a compliment when I wear them (which is a lot). 

Anyway, I hope to return to blogging more regularly now. My mojo is back and I received an exciting parcel from Boohoo today which I'm dying to write about!

Speak soon.
