What I Wore: Lunch With the Girls

22 August 2014

I went for lunch with my girlfriends last weekend and wore a few new pieces that I picked up from ASOS recently - that 70% off sale always draws me in - a top, jeans and necklace.




Boots: Topshop 'Ambush' Side Zip Ankle Boots (no longer available)
Necklace: Johnny Loves Rosie Ida Collar in 'Mint Green'
Bag: My mum's!

P.S. I apologise for these awful mirror shots - they'll have to suffice until I get a proper blogging camera and a willing volunteer to take outfit photos for me!

We decided to go to a cosy pub and spend our afternoon together as we hadn't reunited in ages and a catch up was well and truly overdue! As always, it was an absolute pleasure to be in their company and we were reminiscing on our teenage years and cracking up at the things we used to get up to within minutes. After you leave school and go onto college then work or university it can be really difficult to maintain relationships and make time to see each other when you all lead busy lives, but I think it's so important to hold onto your true friendships. Seeing them again reminds me of what funny, gorgeous women they are and I feel so lucky to have - for over a decade, in some cases - called them my best friends.

Love you, girls!


What would you wear to a lunch with the girls? How do you maintain your friendships?

Hope you have a wonderful time with your friends when you get together - it can be hard to find a date that works for everyone but it's always worth it when you do! :) x

    1. Agreed! I borrow it all the time, thankfully she's nice and lets me :) absolutely, I'm such a foodie and going out for meals is one of my favourites. It's a shame that I couldn't eat anything due to being on the Whole 30 program though, I had to sip coffee instead haha! x

    1. Thanks, Eleanor! I do too, I don't think I even own a pair of jeans that aren't - may need to do a spot of online shopping to sort that out... I love high waisted skirts too, in the Autumn I wear them with shirts and jumpers layered and thick tights with boots, so cosy x

    1. Thanks, Jen! It really was lovely. They're great - I've never bought ASOS jeans before (I'm a Topshop gal!) but the fit is beautiful x

    1. Thank you! It was a little expensive considering it actually arrived broken (eek!), but I couldn't bear to send it back after I fixed it as I just thought it was way too pretty. Thanks for validating that ;) x

  14. I love a good girly catch up! It can be hard to find the free time as you get older (boo!) Lovely outfit :) I usually go for skinny jeans with a nice top and ballet flats, or ankle boots, depending on the British weather! Haha.

    1. Same! I completely agree, it can be a real struggle to find a time that suits everybody but when you do, it's just the best. I hope we'll do it for years and years to come :) that sounds perfect - you're my kinda gal! x

    1. Really?! Thank you so much for saying that. I think the opposite - I take all of my photos on my iPhone as I don't have a camera yet and it really bugs me haha, I can't wait to get a proper Canon blogging camera as my phone is years and years old and I don't feel like it takes photos that are good enough to put on my blog, but I'm making do with what I've got. Thanks for being so kind, it's nice to know that someone thinks they're good enough :) you're just fine x
