#brumbloggermeet and what I wore...

I’m sure by now you are all fed up with hearing about the #brumbloggermeet but I have to say, it really was a lovely day. I managed to meet up with Danni for a coffee and some shopping before we went on to meet everyone else. It was lovely to have a catch up as we haven’t had a proper chat since uni ended and I have missed her! After some initial nervousness we met up with everyone at Starbucks in the Pallasades shopping centre (who I’m sure were thrilled by us commandeering half of the shop :P) and it was so lovely to meet so many gorgeous girls whose blogs I love and I have to say you all are even more lovely in real life! I am such a fail as a blogger though as I took my ‘big camera’ (after much debate on Twitter) and didn’t take any photos...fail. Luckily I have managed to pinch some off Fritha because otherwise this would be a very sparse post!


We were very spoilt with the goodies that Fritha and Claire had organised and so we all posed with our bags from Max C... So many people asked about these when we were wondering around Birmingham and they proved very useful for locating bloggers in the crowds!


The lovely Sara also brought along some amazing Missguided goody bags and I have to say I was super pleased that they included a gorgeous floral wreath headband. I have been eyeing them up for ages and now I have no excuse but to wear one :)
I love the kid posing on the end!
The lovely Selina (who I was super chuffed to meet as she was the first blog I ever read!) had also organised some fab Motel goody bags which also contained some lovely goodies :) I have to say a special thank you to all of the lovely people who contributed some goodies too:Clothing at Tesco, Crown and Glory, Find Me a Gift, Jon Richard, Little Fille, Max C London, Motel Rocks, Missguided, Romwe, and So Charming. I had such a lovely day meeting some of my favourite bloggers (who Louise has listed HERE) and these bags were the icing on the cake!

What could possibly be better than name tags?!
Jumpsuit: H&M, belt: H&M, shoes: New Look, bag: ASOS
Now I know this will come as a bit of a shocker, but yes I am wearing a jumpsuit! I would usually veer away from a jumpsuit as I am not long limbed like Lil or Danni but this one called out to me. I have been obsessed with maxi lengths recently and the print on this meant that I was persuaded to try it on... [Let's just say that Danni is an extremely bad influence!] and minutes later I was sold. It is super comfortable and fits like a dream! I can imagine it being equally yummy in Autumn too and I have a few chunky cardis and shoeboots that would go very nicely... Originally I was wearing the infamous Venice dress but I loved the jumpsuit so much that I got changed straight away!



Flared trousers and sleeves...what more could you ask for?! (Look at my smug little face!)


And just for the lolz. In an attempt to show you just how freeing it was to wear a jumpsuit, Mark persuaded me to jump around and managed to capture me at my very best... Ah well, at least it shows off my jumping skillz again! ;)

Do you enjoy meeting up with other bloggers? Have you been persuaded to break out of your normal style?
Many thanks to the lovely Hattie who was my train companion on the way back, we had such a fab time chatting and I hope to see her again very soon ♥
