Ladies That Lunch!


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.
Butterfly Dress, £30,  Love at Topshop
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.

Dress, Marc Jacobs
Bag, Chloe
Shoes, Aldo

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

    It’s an interesting process for me:) I think about what I’ll wear the night before as I’m drifting off to sleep. Then I try to remember and recreate said outfit in the morning (usually with 10 min to spare) … realize it looks terrible … try on 5 other outfits … then walk out the door with the original outfit on. It’s mayhem and my boyfriend can’t get used to it.
