Girls day .......

 
I normally work on Thursdays but this week I had some owed days that I needed to take, so what do I do on a day off - SHOP what else! My mum, I and L went into Liverpool enjoyed a noisy around and went for some lunch.....a really nice girls day.

My main purpose of the day was to go to Topshop to try on some denim dresses I had spotted on blogs and online but the firstly we went into Zara. Just a few things caught my attention, the shoes below being one, gorgeous, a perfect flat evening shoe, would look amazing with rolled up boyfriends and a white lace top for a casual evening out and they had some amazing necklaces.


 
Then we went into John Lewis and I fell in love with these Steve Madden leopard sandals,  such a great price!
 
 
The LK Bennett beauties that are in this months Red magazine are even more gorgeous in the flesh.

 
I had a bit of a shoe day didn't I??

Then finally onto Topshop and I went to try on the following two Denim dresses, what one did I go? 


 
I will not leave you in suspense, I went for the darker one, it was thicker than I thought, I was planning on this being the perfect summer thrown on day dress but it looked more expensive than the paler one in my opinion so that sealed the deal. I think is going to be a hard worker in my wardrobe, worn in winter with tights and ankle boots and summer with my tan sandals.
 
On my way out I saw an outfit that in my single days I would of got for my Saturday night out this weekend - I use to love that, buying a new outfit for a night out just for the hell of it, my credit card didn't like it however! 






 
What did I wear for shopping and lunch, here I am laughing at L because she was getting slightly noisy and impatient with Nanna's photo shoot - Nanna trying to work a I-Phone is painful! 



Jacket, Jigsaw / Dress, Mango here / Ankle Boots, R&B / Bag, Mulberry / Scarf, M&S

So what did I wear this Saturday evening - my old LBD - if in doubt this comes out! It is a old Joseph wool jersey dress with a low waist with pockets, its been worn to a winter wedding, a funeral, nights out and work! I teamed it up with a new necklace I got from Zara, yes another purchase made, totally spent up this month!!!

See you next time, as ever thanks for reading.

    1. They are gorgeous aren't they, looked far more expensive than their £35. The inner Bets in us I am sure a little bit more leopard will not harm. x

  5. Good choice I have the same dress! Found the sizes quite big though and went down to a size 6 which is ridiculous as I'm usually a 10. Was initially worried about the length but with thick opaques and biker boots it's such a comfy outfit. Enjoy!x

    1. Yes I sized down also, which is quite nice. It looks great with tights, Ive only tried my ankle boots but I bet with bikers it looks really cool - I think it you have some loafers as well it would work.x

  9. Ah - another taker on the denim dress! We're all getting in there! Will love seeing your take on wearing one - it will probably be a little dressier than me methinks.

    And I like the lunch outfit - very stylish. Makes me think I need to get the old legs out a bit more.

  11. I want to go shopping. I have been stuck at home, for a while, and what to have a look, touch and try on. I am not sure I could work the denim dress but I love your shopping outfit. I like skirts and dresses to have thick tights underneath. The idea of exposing my pasty legs sends a shudder right now. H xx

    1. Nothing is better than going into the shops and feeling the clothes, is it. oh I think you could work a denim dress.... I need to moisturize my dry legs to bare them without the thick tights....yes pasty!! x

  12. Love your evening look and the new necklace. I have succumbed to the LKB flats and have been stroking them daily! Looking forward to being able to wear them without the fear of rain spoiling them. I will be interested to see the denim dress on and may have to add one to my spring wish list. x
