Last weekend, my lovely friend Vik and I, went for a fun girly champagne lunch in Butler’s Wharf in London. We were meeting up with girls that we hadn’t seen for a long time so it was very exciting.
The weather was lovely. Not too hot, not too cold. It was just right. Anyway, enough of that Goldilocks moment.
I had planned to wear a Halston Heritgae black jersey bustier jumpsuit I snagged in the Selfridges sale for £50, but when I had it on, it felt a bit too serious and sombre for such a frivolous outing. Goodness it just wasn’t right! This was bad. So, literally 5 minutes before my taxi arrived, I tore it off and replaced it with this.

Denim Jacket, £96, Marc by Marc Jacobs, at the Outnet
Wedges, £75, Pied a Terre, at Selfridges
Vik, in true Vik style, (think Monica from friends) wore exactly what she had planned to wear three months ago. This is not a personality trait we have in common. And as planned, of course, she looked gorgeous.

And here are a few snaps from the rest of the day.
I was really happy in my outfit in the end. The dress had just the right amount of stretch for over indulging in champagne and lobster. Mmmmmm. It was comfy and cool and worth the stress of the unscheduled outfit overhaul.
Are you a Vik or a Ree? Perfectly planned or lavishly last minute? I have to admit that I’m a fashion schizophrenic, and sway wildly between the two.
Can’t wait to hear from you
