OOTD: Midlands Blogger Meet

Sunday 23 February 2014

On Saturday, I attended the Midlands Blogger Meet, organised by the lovely Kelly from To Become Mum and Emma from Frugally Peachy. It was truly a lovely day, I had the best time and met some great people. More on the blog meet is coming in another post, so for now, I'll stick to the outfit!

I was really unsure what to wear, meeting a load of fashionable bloggers, and I was a little nervous about just rocking up and not knowing anyone, so I tried to pick something I'd feel comfortable in.

Brown and black leopard print flared skirt - Moda by George 
Gold link and cream grosgrain ribbon necklace - Primark
Pale denim shirt - H&M
Black suede wedge ankle boots with chunky gold zips - Primark
Black quilted leather jacket with metallic bead embroidery - Zara
Black mini leopard Alexa satchel - Mulberry

It almost felt like spring on Saturday and the sun was shining bright, although it was still cold - so I wanted something that would be warm enough as well. Spotted someone strolling along Central Avenue in a short chiffon playsuit with bare arms and legs and I just thought 'Steady on, love!', its not that warm yet!

My skirt was such a bargain - I've found some really cool things in Asda a couple of times when I've been doing the food shopping. It was in the sale for something like £6. I wear it a lot for work but I thought it might be nice to try giving it a casual twist as well.

I left my hair to dry naturally and just put some salt spray in the bottom so it looked kind of undone and messy rather than straightened to within an inch of its life! I've decided that I might try doing that more often. I used to hate my hair when it hadn't been heat styled, but am starting to like a bit of movement now.

My makeup was fairly neutral but I went for a slick of sheer orange on the lips to keep it fresh- Topshop Lips in 'Swirl'.

It was such a great day and I'll be writing all about it in my next post xx
