Birthday Blues

Last night I popped out to celebrate one of my favourite people’s birthdays.

With bubbles in one fist and roses in the other, my fella & I marched off into the setting sun.

Sadly, the birthday boy is fiercely camera shy.

A camera may as well be a loaded weapon as far as he’s concerned, and as such they’re not allowed in the house.

So no party blogging for me.

But, you know me!

Could I resist the combination of a swishy new dress, a glistening evening and an Uber held up in traffic?

Of course I ruddy well couldn’t!

So, while it may not be the party post I’d have liked, I can at the very least share a style post with you.

You can’t beat a good maxi dress.

Flattering for every shape and size under the sun.

The right cut can lengthen your legs, skim your bottom, slim your torso, while enhancing your bust.

Less overtly sexy and a little more grown up than a mini.

A flowing skirt swishes past your bottom & legs, gently hinting at what lies beneath.

Obsessed with all things blue, I paired mine with a snazzy new number from Pocket Watch.

They’re a new British company and I can safely say I have never had more compliments on a watch!

I have a thing for large, almost masculine watches but I think the rose gold makes it firmly mine, rather than something I’ve borrowed from my chap.

The rest of my arm candy is from Baublebar.

After a little dancing, we did start to hope the car would turn up soon!

We discussed the pros & cons of cracking into the champagne… but decided against it.

I posted a snap of my ticker on Instagram. People immediately asked where it was from and when I shared the link, it came up with info on a little competition they’re running.

I know my readers tend to be a talented bunch, so I thought it might be right up your street!

Check it out, and if you win you have to promise to come back and tell me (and give me some tips!).
