As you all know as I've only mentioned it 67 times, it was my birthday on Sunday but as we were travelling back from our hols I decided to celebrate on Monday instead. To tie in with all the Jubilee celebrations I decided to have a few friends round for a 'Jubilee' buffet, and then on to the pub for some drinks, and so I thought I'd share with you my birthday outfit.
I really wanted this dress after first seeing Ellie then Vicki in it, as you may, or may not know, I love yellow clothes, especially dresses and this one was just too cute. Then I saw some of the other girls from the Project Take 10 Challenge also wearing it, and I knew it had to be mine! All of them, despite their different shapes, sizes, hair colour and style looked good in it so I knew it was a winner. As my birthday was coming up I made a subtle hint to the boy, and the next thing I know I was opening it up on Sunday. Ok, ok I admit it, I may have sent him an email with the link to the dress and said 'If you haven't thought of all my presents yet, I'd really like this dress'!
Ideally I would have liked to have styled it with brown brogues but I don't actually own any (what is that about?!) so I just had to make do with what I had in my wardrobe, and here is the final result:
1. Dress - H! by Henry Holland for Debenhams
2. Necklace / Watch - Urban Outfitters
3. Bag - Yumi
I tried to stick to a slight Jubilee theme in my outfit, the Queen loves wearing yellow, right? And, check out my London bag! I love this bag, it was a birthday present two years ago but it only comes out now for special occasions. I used it a bit too much when I first got it and now it's slightly falling to pieces, sad times :( And finally, the necklace, another birthday present from the boy, which he selected himself...talk about good taste!
And look, the Queen even came to my party :)
I'm planning on doing another post later in the week to show off the rest of my birthday presents, I haven' had them all yet because of the double bank holiday :(
Hope you all had good Jubilee weekends and made the most of two extra days off. Today I have mainly been eating, and watching TV, standard right?!
all about the girl
