What I Wore… to bloggersfestival!

I went to the #bloggersfestival event last weekend so it was a very busy Instagram and Twitter day on Saturday. What do you expect when a large group of bloggers come together?  It’s like some sort of cardinal rule – when THIS many bloggers are in the same room, Instagram-hysteria happens..

This week is going far too quickly – I’m nowhere near prepared for London Fashion Week so today is going to be a short one! As a little What I Wore special, I thought I’d show you a quick look at my outfit that day and a glimpse of what went down at #bloggersfestival…

What I Wore.

It was a surprisingly pleasant day in London and no jacket was needed so, with the last dregs of Summer in my cup, I opted for this simple grey jersey t-shirt dress from Boohoo, paired with a statement necklace and printed scarf.

I love this Boohoo dress – it’s so comfy and easy to wear in both summer or winter – however it needs dressing up otherwise it just looks like a large grey sack. (a beautiful comfy large grey sack)

The necklace is a gothic F&F find and I love it as it’s bold without being too garish. Am on the hunt for more statement jewellery now!!

The scarf is ‘imitation’ Hermes, sourced whilst on a family va-cay in China. I absolutely love it – despite the bold colours, it actually goes well with so many outfits and lends a very chic, art-school grad appeal. I wear it with skinny jeans and a white tee on the weekend, or with a suit on the way to work. 

I found my outfit soulmate in Albertine from DippyWrites – both of us rocking the grey jersey & bling look!

 Best dressed blogger award for me, went to the beautiful Aura from AuraBorealisWrites. She had these amaaaazing blue contacts in and a lovely intricate dragon ear cuff on.

I’d love to wear an ear cuff, but this would draw far too much attention on my pointy elf ears…. Little-known fact, my ears are pointy!

Here’s a look at my highlights from #bloggersfestival.

    I love Blogger events, it's so great getting to catch up with all the other bloggers and the best part, they GET blogging so your not always explaining what it is you do and why, you can have perfectly acceptable debates about hashtags and HTML coding over cocktails! It's great fun and it looks like you girls really enjoyed yourselves!Sarah :)Saloca in Wonderland
