I had such a brilliant weekend last week in London. It’s such a fun city and it was great to spend time with my friends and lots of my family. Plus the weather was amazing and now I’m officially craving summer! My weekend fun actually began Friday morning when I went to an International Women’s Day event in the Convention Centre in Dublin. It was amazing to be around such inspiring women and hear about their stories and experiences. The event was brilliant with great food, talks and people. So delighted I was able to go!
I kept my outfit that day fun but practical, while staying work appropriate. This great striped top is from Zara. I love the red, black and white together and for a shortie like me, the vertical stripes help to add the illusion of being slightly taller. Heels also help with that!
Heels: River Island
Later that evening I headed for London straight from work and went out straight from the plane! I changed into leather trousers and a leopard print top although unfortunately I didn’t get a picture. I’m sure I’ll be recreating that look again though! Friday night was so much fun, I was pretty wrecked the next day though! I went to brunch with my lovely friend Becky and then onto lunch with my family. It was so lovely to see lots of my cousins, aunts, uncles and my cousins baby. It was a lovely chilled afternoon in the sunshine with some wine. You can see from my pictures that my weekend centred around food a lot!
I always find I do a lot of walking when I’m in London. Especially when the weather is that lovely. I stuck to a uniform of trainers and jeans all weekend as I wanted to be comfortable. I love my red New Balance so much! They just change a simple outfit so much.
Trainers: New Balance (similar)
White Top: Gap

It was a brilliant weekend away. I find that weekends away make such a difference and are a great way to recharge your batteries. Although my weekend was pretty non stop so I think I actually came home more exhausted than when I left! I really do love London though and I’m already planning my next trip!
I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!
