What to wear to the Jeans for Genes launch party?




Friday 19th September is Jeans for Genes day, an annual fundraising event which raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders. If you're not a fan of iced water you may like to get involved in this, just grab your best pair of jeans for the day and make a donation, no ice involved!

On Tuesday the launch party to officially start the campaign is being held in London and I'm so happy to be invited along. It's such a wonderful cause and the money raised helps provides much needed funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders. So it's important to show support and sign up to take part.

Now what to wear to the launch party? The invitation doesn't say wear jeans but I think jeans seems the obvious option. But it's never just that simple is it,  jeans with jacket, double denim, blue jeans, black jeans, to wear jeans or not to wear jeans arrgghhh. I've manged to get 3 choices together,I need your help deciding which one I should wear.

This is my first option, inspired by Rita Ora's cover on Glamour magazine this month (Click  here to check it out) Rita has a velvet blazer on and cute cufflinks, if you vote for this outfit I'm going to add some cufflinks too. My only worry about this is it's a bit 'Harry Hill' (To all my followers outside UK Google Harry Hill and you'll know what I mean). 


What to wear - Outfit 1


What to wear to the Jeans for Genes 2014
Shirt - Next (men)
Jacket - New Look
Jeans - Primark
Boots - Zara


VOTE HERE FOR OUTFIT 1


Second option is Double Denim  - the hot trend at the moment. I think because it's so on trend the room may be filled with double denim so it may not be the best outfit to wear if I want to stand out in the crowd.


What to wear - Outfit 2

What to wear Gg Rogers
Jacket - Zara
Shirt - Topshop






Now this is where I really need your opinion, my third option. You don't have to wear jeans but as the event suggests it's 'Jeans for Genes' would it be wrong to go in skorts? I don't necessarily want to stand out in a crowd (especially in the wrong way) but I don't want to get lost in a crowd either. If you like the top & Jacket I can add it to jeans??? 

Jacket H&M
Top H&M
Skorts Primark





So what to wear? I'll leave the decision entirely up to you. Just click on the 'VOTE HERE' button to make your choice. I'll wear the outfit that gets the most votes.

It's time to celebrate in style and I'm soooo looking forward to it, I need a good night out. We're starting the evening off by going for cocktails and then we're going for a meal.

What to wear to a boat party?

I'm so excited, I'm off on holiday soon (yay) I can't wait but adding to my excitement is I've been invited to a boat party whilst I'm there. The invite is courtesy of some friends to spend the day on board their luxury yacht (wahoo) but what do I wear?? The invite says bring swimwear (that bits easy) but I know I'll want the security of being able to cover up when I can especially as there will be some seriously glamorous people there *eek*. A kaftan is the perfect cover up but also light, stylish and easy to pack so I've got 3 to choose from or rather I've got 3 for you to choose from and solve my What to wear to a boat party dilemma.

 What to wear for a Girls night out?

Did anyone see Kylie Minogue on The Voice in a black ensemble with a pair of funky tights?  I loved the look so I've decided to try it out at the weekend when I go out with the girls but I've teamed mine with a black playsuit. Tights, patterned & plain are such a hot trend right now and if that wasn't reason enough to wear them; it's cold out there and tights will disguise my white pastey legs!



I'm going to wear a playsuit... that much I've decided upon but the question is what tights to wear with them? I've got *floral / square / or helter skelter designs to choose from....which ones do you think?

What tights to wear with a little black playsuit for a night out with the girls?

YOU decide :) Watch my funky little video for my choices...






Thanks for looking

What to wear to London Fashion week?

What to wear to London Fashion week?

Question: If you were lucky enough to get a front row seat at London Fashion week, what would you wear? 

With the world's fashion pack  focused solely on your choice of ensemble it's got to be just right; Fashionable, sexy and suave. Phase Eight put that challenge to all the bloggers in the bloggershere to create a super stylish ensemble worthy of a FROW seat at the catwalk shows – a show-stopping outfit that would hold its own amongst fashion’s finest. So here's mine...

My idea was not to compete with true fashionistas by dressing outrageous but to keep it simple, stylish and elegant. A Frow A-lister!

I chose a black tunic which I think is meant to be worn with trousers but the hemline is so sexy and fashion is all about wearing it your way so I'm wearing it as a LBD. I also added the 

Evie Satin Weave Clutch Bag - The colour is so gorgeous It adds a pop of colour which will look great on the FROW. And then I completed the look with the Shimmery Raffia And Grosgrain Weave Court Shoes...



Move over Kate but I'm sitting next to Mr.Green!




Phase Eight Blogger Competition Outfit

Lucia Weave High Heel Shoes

Evie Satin Weave Clutch Bag



Hope you like my outfit choice from Phase Eight. What would you wear?

What to Wear to dinner at The Simonds Room at Audleys Wood Hotel

Hi Guys, what are your plans for Valentines? Well lucky little me is off to Audleys Wood Hotel a luxury 4 star country house hotel in Basingstoke, Hampshire. I’ve visited a couple of times before but never had the opportunity to stay or dine there so I’m really looking forward to it. 

Set in seven acres of private grounds the hotel is a converted manor house, part of the Handpicked Hotel group, It boasts The Conservatory & The Simonds Room restaurants (both look very enticing) and among other things gorgeous features like the impressive fireplaces and the grand stairway just as you walk inside the hotel, oh and not forgetting the attractive bar (where I expect we'll spend the latter part of the evening!) 

Myself & my boyfriend are staying Saturday night at the hotel and in the evening we’re having dinner in The Simonds Room. Quoted as a ‘dining sensation’ on the website and awarded 2 AA Rosettes in 2012 I think we’re in for a fine dining treat judging by the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. My mouths watering already!!


Now what to wear? A dress or trousers?  Before you help me decide take a look at the hotel website - Audleys Wood Hotel to get a good idea of the ambience. The venue is full of English Charm, a mix of characterful yet contemporary elegance and the perfect place to spend an evening with the one you love :) 

The obvious choice is to wear a dress and I've put three choices below but I've also included a trouser choice. I'm not sure if trousers are the right look for a romantic evening but let me know what you think.

Here are the outfits, click on the link below the outfit to make your choice. The outfit with the most votes is the one I'll wear...
