What I Wore Wednesday: 24 Hours Down South

Apologies for another late What I Wore Wednesday post but I flew down to Heathrow on Tuesday afternoon as I needed to be down south for work on Wednesday and didn't get back until late Wednesday night. 


On Tuesday I got to meet up with Lizzie from Mummy in Manolos and Jacqui from Mummy's Little Monkey for dinner and we had such a great time. We were horrible bloggers and didn't take a single picture of the three of us but I think it is kind of nice that we weren't attached to our phones and just enjoyed chatting! I did manage to snag a picture of what I wore in my hotel room mirror.


I had planned to wear super cute shoes but Blondie Boy was up with an ear infection all night the night before and I was so tired I figured flip-flops were a better bet:

sequin shoulder sweater

Sequin Shouldered Top- Pussycat London
Old Navy The Flirt Jeans
Old Navy Blue Flip Flops
Brag About It Necklace

It was hard to get a photo that showed the sequin detail on the shoulders. I got this top ages ago in the New Look sale and I love how it is the perfect length to wear with jeans or leggings. It seemed the perfect top for a casual dinner with friends and was comfy to fly in as well. Of course when I was at the airport I thought it looked funny and then I realized it was on BACKWARDS. I told you Blondie Boy was up all night but not sure how I managed that one if I'm honest. Oh well. I had on a Brag It necklace with BB's name and birthday but you can't really see it in either photo.

First I didn't wear flip flops to work but the I wasn't going to run around Heathrow in heels if I didn't have to so by the time I took this photo they were off and packed. I was in back to back meetings all day so I didn't grab a photo until I was at Heathrow so I was super cool and took my picture in a bathroom at the airport. Pop-up airport bathroom fashion shows are all the rage, right?


If you can't tell I freaking love my Cynthia Rowley dresses; they are so comfortable and I get compliments every time I wear them which, lets be honest, is a nice thing. We have a wedding this weekend and I'm pretty sure I will wear one of them then too! I may or may not pop in to TK Maxx when I'm going past just to see if there are any different patterns--like I said I freaking love them.

I love those Cynthia Rowley dresses. I only have a pink one, but I'm always tempted to get more when I see other colors in TJ Maxx.

I love buying the same thing in different patterns or colors, if it is something I love!!!

Melaina25 said...

I love sequins on everything. Going to check out the other blogs...

I try not to do the bathrooms shots either but, you know, sometimes it's just gotta do! Love the dress.

Melaina25 said...

I've definitely done a handful of airport bathroom photo shoots on my work trips - love it!!! Great dress, too :)

Melaina25 said...

There aren't really any other options lol.

Melaina25 said...

It took forever for it to be just me standing there!

Melaina25 said...

Aww thanks-- I'm glad someone gets it :)

Melaina25 said...

Glad it's there! I'm a sucker for anything sequins :)

Melaina25 said...

I totally looked on TKMaxx online today to see if I could find more!

Melaina25 said...

Dude if you see other colours let me know! I'm dying for more!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! I got the top at New Look but MEGA on sale :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks Rachel! They are so comfortable and flattering and you are looking at £25 investment tops! I've gotten so much wear out of them too.

Melaina25 said...

Thanks Ania! Ugh poor boy woke up saying his ears hurt and he didn't feel well. He's not a complainer so we knew he wasn't well. Finally got his antibiotics (he is allergic to penicillin-- so has to be ordered in) so he's doing better.

Melaina25 said...

*giggles* Sometimes I too wear something backwards, whether by mean or by accident!

Melaina25 said...

I kept looking down and going "hmm my top looks weird" DUH it was backwards. I went and hid under some stairs and turned it around.

Melaina25 said...

Quick down and back for work but it was so nice to see Jacqui and Lizzie.

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! Heathrow is the main airport in London (Heathrow, Gatwick, City, Luton and Stanstead are all the London airports!) and handles the most international passengers of any airport in the world! One of my clients offices is about a 25 minute drive away in Buckinghamshire.

Melaina25 said...

Loving the sequin top but that dress is just gorgeous! Such fabulous colours :-)

Melaina25 said...

thanks for hosting! :) I love participating in these!

Melaina25 said...

Love the dress! You look so cute in it!

Melaina25 said...

Nothing wrong with switching into flip flops at the airport! I'm guilty of doing that on work trips. I'm sure I look really cool in my suit and flip flops!

So glad to see this linky went live! Just linked up and off to check out other blogs!

Melaina25 said...

I think I've only actually missed one week since I started last year!

Melaina25 said...

No one wants to schlep around an airport in heels right? Plus they tell you to take off your shoes on a plane in an emergency anyway so it is just being super prepared :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks!

Melaina25 said...

Glad you enjoy it :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks sweetie!

Melaina25 said...

Totally loving the sequined shoulder top!

Melaina25 said...

Love the sequined shoulder detailing!!! And how fun that you got to meet some fellow bloggers. I'm fairly new to blogging, so I've only been to a few meet-ups, but they were so fun!!! Thanks for hostessing today, Melaina. ~Sarah

1. Loving the length of that top
2. Loving the style of those "skater dresses" - they really suit you.

Melaina25 said...

Very cute outfits! Hope Blondie Boy is feeling better! Poor baby. I am so glad we are finally mostly past the ear infection stage.

Melaina25 said...

Loving your casual dinner outfit - definitely the sort of thing I'd have chosen too :) Hope you had a great time!

Melaina25 said...

You always look so comfy.

Melaina25 said...

I would like to find a dress like your at TJ Maxx....very flattering!

Melaina25 said...

So it looks like I didn't sign in with disqus correctly last week - doh! What I meant to say was that I hope you had a great time... love your casual dinner outfit - definitely my kind of style :)

Is anyone else totally captivated and mesmerized by the 2012 Olympics? Had to get that out. I love Cynthia Rowley, I was lucky enough to find a few of he pieces at Marshalls here in the states. Super stylish and definitely, comfy!
