With 2015 fastly approaching the time has come to make the decision of what to wear. Have you chosen what you will be wearing to see the New Year in?
Favourites From The Bunch
As you can see my Essie obsession will most definitely come in handy for the party season – light to dark and mixture of course.
What are your go to colours for the Festive Season?
Despite not being able to get this jacket in my size as it goes from a size 4-12 I am sure I can find it somewhere!
This can be dressed up and down and used for more than one season so a win win all round.
Reiss – £265
Skirts, High wasted trousers, smart or casual. This top can be worn with a multitude of things and dressed up or down.
Even without accessories this top will look gorgeous for the simplicity of the lace.
New Look – £24.99
What are you favourites and what will you be wearing this festive season?
Last week I headed up to central London with Catherine for a walk around and general catch up. Feeling in a girly mood I decided to actually make an effort to dress like a female instead of my usual jeans, birkes and vest. Personally it made a lot of difference and despite showing my knickers to many onlookers on the St Paul’s steps I really enjoyed myself.
From City Thameslink we strolled out and up to Pizza Express for some lunch and planning for the rest of our day.
As usual the pizza was tasty and it was a great opportunity to ogle the waiter and catch up as we hadn’t seen each other for a while. When you go from seeing each other more than three times a week to about three times a month catch ups are needed.
Feeling overly satisfied and slightly bloated we moved on . . .
There were squirrels, pigeons, lovers, readers and city workers walking through the gardens of the cathedral. The atmosphere was truly vibrant but peaceful at the same time.
The wind was out in full force and although I did my best to contain my skirt there were a couple of episodes where the passers-by of this idyllic setting got a bit of an eyeful. I did however manage to get some decent photos where my skirt was not making an attempt to reach my throat!
After this little episode we were in much need of more alcohol as we felt a little squiffy!
After leaving St Paul’s we started to notice that there were many of these awesome book chairs in random places – there were a couple that I only realised were in place when on another side of a very difficult to cross road. So, there will be more photos of these awesome shows of literature across the literary city of London.
We made our way over to Madison at One New Change. This is a place that I have now visited a fair few times and absolutely love the atmosphere. On that evening in particular the vibe was buzzing and we just had to pop some champagne. There is always good news and bad news but why not just go with the good.
Before we left Madison the weather did a complete 360 and the heavens opened. After it calmed down slightly we made a break for it and headed over the Millennium Bridge back to our side of the river – the best side of course!
This is why I love London – no matter how good or bad the weather is it is truly BEAUTIFUL.
I really do love my city.
As you may have noticed I am a great advocate for the ‘South’ side of the river and the above couple of pictures are just a few to testify to the brilliance and creativity shown on the south bank.
There are few more photos that I will be posting soon but this just about sums up our lovely day out.
Do you love your city? Is it London? If not then where?
Show & Tell time people 😀
No, not the Katherine Heigl Movie although that is a pretty good chick flick!
