I have been seriously slacking on the outfit post front lately, and bearing in mind the fashion side of things was one of – if not, the – main reason for starting this blog, that makes me a pretty crap blogger! (slagging off your own blogging skills, nice one Elle!) But…I am pretty much done with work for the rest of the year now so I have absolutely no excuse (pretty sure I’ll find one from somewhere) to slack from now on.
I’m not the luckiest when it comes to birthdays, and this year in typical fashion, I spent my birthday in A&E. Long story short, I somehow managed to tear the ligaments in my knee (don’t ask) and whilst I really couldn’t care less about my birthday’s, it wasn’t exactly the first choice of places to spend my time in!
Before you wack the violins out, I wasn’t telling you that for sympathy, it was my long winded way of leading into a post that should have gone up a while ago, what I wore to a casual birthday meal. Two weeks of complete rest (bar the odd shopping trip) ice, elevation and all that jazz later, I finally hobbled out for a belated/mum’s 50th birthday meal!
I went to one of my favourite Gluten-free restaurants – Cotto, on Westminster Bridge Road – which deserves a whole bloody blog, let alone a mere post, to itself! A post will be on it’s way soon…but for now, I’ll leave you with what I was wearing. (Can’t help but feel like a bit of a perve when you word it like that)….
Some may say I deliberately shot this in front of a scenic backdrop to distract from my dishevelled, windswept, ‘dragged through a hedge backwards’ appearance. They would be correct!
Top and Gilet: Primark
Faux leather trousers (pleather…love that word!): H&M
Boots: Ebay (bargain central!)
Frizzy hair, mulled wine and chocolate induced bloated face…and a new years resolution to try and take much better/even slightly acceptable OOTD pictures: All my own!
