I decided that it would be a perfect dress for a birthday night out, so I put it away in my wardrobe and resisted every urge to wear it before that night! I did, and boy was I glad....
Black and Pink Tropical Floral Skater Dress With Patent Belt - Was £35 Now £18.40
I was so pleased with the dress. A usual, being 6"1, the dress was a little short for tights, so I teamed it with some black leggings. I do find this more comfortable anyway as I am still to find a pair of tights that fit my waist size AND leg length. But anyway, I felt amazing in the dress.
I opted for no jewellery or jacket, just my birthday present from Hubby, a rose gold Michael Kors watch :) (separate post to follow). And then we were ready to go out! We had cocktails and dinner with a friend, then headed to The Chequers pub in Sevenoaks High Street for their weekly pub quiz. There we were joined by a couple of other friends. More wine and laughs later, we came 4th out of 9 teams...... we were pretty satisfied as there was only 4 of us! I even got treated by a sweet 'merry' guy who heard it was my birthday and bought me a lovely little bottle or Prosecco :) We have done the quiz at The Chequers a few times now, and it is always great fun. If you are ever in the area on a Wednesday evening, I would highly recommend it!
