It just so happened it turned out to be an absolute glorious sunny mild day.
So after the hairdressers i had an hour to find something at my local shops. And this beautiful River Island dress was on sale. For £20. Beautiful and a bargain.
I had actually swooned after this baby when it was full price. The kimono sleeves are ticking some major style boxes and also dress it down making it easy to wear in the day time. Granted i didn't realise how short it was in the changing room, but at least its slightly longer at the back, making it ok for even a tall gal like me.
I added in my new mules, again a great day shoe for when you want a heel but a skinny stiletto heel is just too dressy, a pop of orange with my Fossil bag which was tied together nicely with this yosa necklace. After over a week of stressing about what to wear, i was actually really pleased with this last minute option.
Normally when i panic purchase it usually ends up in the never-to-be-worn-gain pile. But this time i think i did good.
Pat pat on the back for me ;)

Have you ever been for afternoon tea? I have to say it was wonderful, even catering for me with a gluten free tea! What would you wear to such an event?
