I sort of felt like a kid in the candy store when it came to selecting an outfit for this event. I KNEW the people in attendance would love fashion and style as much as I do. I knew I had options from the folks at 17 Sundays who pretty much gave me from reign of their AW14 collection to build an outfit from. And lastly I knew I wanted to look great to meet all the fabulous women attending. Derrrr.

So what did I decide on?

THIS.

I loved it actually. The skirt {that I borrowed from Mel} is something that I’ve always loved the look of but never really wear. I feel like with my large shoulders and boobs make it all wonky and out of proportion. But with the tucking of the sized down t-shirt into the shirt, the narrowness of the jacket {and lightweight thanks that it was a top, thank goodness} it works. People talked all day about this top worn as a jacket. It was an eye catcher, that’s for sure. And all together, just what I was looking for.

Though I did have to ditch my ankle boots or die of heat exhaustion. Haha.

So there you go folks. A pretty comprehensive coverage of what I wore. Hit me up for information. I’m not sure of all the details on all the items included but let me know if you’re interested and I’ll ask Liv and Emma to give me the heads up. And don’t worry there is more to come. I plan to sit down tomorrow morning with my coffee and do a tell all, behind the scenes gossipy review. It’ll be the best. So see you then, yes?
