Off Out On An Adventure Plus My OOTD

Today I'm off on a bit of an adventure, as I've been invited to something I never thought I'd be saying I was going to.  

A few weeks ago an email pinged into my inbox that made me squeal with excitement & then sent me into huge panic - what on earth was little old me doing being invited to such an event - it must have been a mistake surely?!!  And secondly what the hell was I going to wear - let alone would I have the nerve to actually attend (for those that have been following me for a while you'll know that just starting this blog & putting myself 'out there' was a huge thing for me) as I'm so not one to crave attention.  But after a glass (or two) of bubbles & egged on by the hubby I replied to the invite saying I'd love to go.  And today's the day!

So where am I off to?!!!  Well I'm only off to a launch party for Helen Lederer's new Mid-Lit book at a private members club in London - can you believe it?!  I certainly can't!!!  I mean seriously how do you decide what to wear?!!!  Needless to say trying to decided involved a mega trying on session with most items of my clothing ending up in a huge mound on the floor.

Finally I decided on this.




Stole  (Christmas Present) - Zara
Jacket (Christmas Present) - Zara
Top - Zara
Wax Effect Jeans - Zara
Boots - Boden
Bag -  Zara 


Grey, Black & Leopard Print


Stole - ASOS £28
Jacket - Zara Now £59.99
Leather Effect Leggings - Next £28


Right I'd better set off & catch my train I've got a full day packed including a yummy lunch with hubby, a hand & arm massage plus champagne & canapés at Jo Malone & then the book launch - wish me luck!

Hope everyone has a great Saturday.
