What I Wore – Brooks Brothers and Pop Tarts

This is what happens when you let an American loose in England – she recklessly hops and skips around town wearing collegiate Brooks Brothers whites and Pop Tarts accessories.

(I swear, they’d kick me out if I wasn’t addicted to Game of Thrones.)

What I Wore:
Petite non-iron white shirt from Brooks Brothers
Neon skirt (out of season, similar here)
Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses
Pop Tarts case as a clutch (bought last year in the US)
Citizen Drive watch
Neon heels (out of season, similar here)

What I Wore – Throwback with New Look

throwback new look
With the idea that every girl has a ‘Throwback’ dress in their wardrobe that they can’t get rid of (from the ones you wear in and out, to the ones you just love to look at!), New Look recently challenged me to swap my own personal Throwback for a New Look dress that could fit the bill for years to come.

The thing is, I am a Hardcore Dress Girl. Every dress that lives in my closet has been carefully selected to make me feel confident, beautiful, and…like myself. From sparkles, to florals, to the ones you can’t eat bread in, I never get rid of dresses.

This means – in The Case of The Throwback – my challenge was not to swap a favourite out for a new favourite, but to to find a dress that I’d want to hold on to forever…

(…as I’m convinced I should have spent the last 24 years in the 1960s, nothing seemed like a better choice than this classic, pretty swing.)

What I Wore:
This snazzy little swing dress from New Look

A lot of love for F&F and Katy Perry

f&f katy perry
Those of you who follow me on Instagram will already be aware of my larger-than-life Saturday night.

In partnership with my lovely friends at F&F, I spent the evening with Katy Perry (and a million fellow Katy Cats) on the final night of her Prismatic tour at London’s 02.

Decked out in the most Katy-worthy white jumpsuit I could find, I booked it from an all-day excursion on Regent Street to witness the extraordinary fitness that is Miss Katy Perry.

It was the best night I have had in a very long time (as you might be able to see from my select few Insta-videos, below!).

What I Wore:

What I Wore – Nice and Easy

ingenue dress
All women have an outfit I would call an ‘I Woke Up Like Dis’ ensemble. Something magical that manages to look lovely, put together, and suggest that you didn’t wake up at 8:55 if you arrive somewhere at 9.

This is that ensemble (sometimes swapping the kicks out for heels). In fact, Ingenue London are kind of notorious for these kind of dresses (fellow curvy fans include Holly Willoughby and Emma Bunton) and they are incredibly soft, to boot.

What I Wore:
Ria tropical dress from Ingenue London
Jasper Conran doctor’s bag (similar here)
Stud buckle wedge trainers by Blonde & Blonde
Thin headband from Scunci

What I Wore – Skin

I never went to my high school prom. Not that I’m all ‘boohoo’ about it (graduating early and high-tailing it out of Midwest America was a fair trade), but I do feel like I jipped myself out of a fun night in a sparkly dress.

As an adult, I get especially excited about spending a formal evening with friends…and sparkles (no doubt thanks to the promlessness of my youth). In fact, when it comes to special occasions, my first port of call is always prom dress websites.

Let’s just lay it out there: this dress was a given from the first click. Though style ‘gurus’ say pale girls shouldn’t wear ‘nude’ or ‘skin’ colours, it is my favourite rule to break. The colours, beading, sheer panels, and swing skirt were exactly what I was looking for.

What I Wore:
’8518′ Sherri Hill cocktail dress from Rissy Roo’s
Custom-made heels from The Colour Studio
