What I Wore Wednesday: BritMums Live

On Friday morning at 4am UK time we left Spain and then I flew straight to Ayrshire and then drove up to Glasgow to fly to London for BritMums Live! I was exhausted to say the least but I had an amazing time. Since I was travelling all day and schlepping from Gatwick into town I arrived in what I flew in (jeans and a tee). The lovely people at TK Maxx offered to dress all of us Best Style blog finalists so I changed before the BiBs in the evening; super sweet Chelsea from Ms. Mummy of Two let fellow finalist Liz from Baby Wears Prada and I get all dolled up in her room before the awards started.

Metallic Dress- TK Maxx
Ankle Boots-New Look
Kitty Ears- Accessorize

I'm a huge fan of the current summer trend for metallics so I grabbed this metallic dress the second I saw it at TK Maxx. I know you're thinking---umm WTF is with the cat ears? Well when Liz won the Best Fashion award at The Mads last year she had some super cute kitty cat ears so we decided to rock them again for the BiBs. If you can't wear cat ears to an awards ceremony when can you? You can't tell but the top half of the dress was see-through at the back something I didn't think I'd be comfortable with but am glad I faced my fear!

The next day I was speaking during one of the sessions and again was lucky enough to have an outfit sent to me by the fab team at Secret Sales. I knew I wanted to be comfortable since I was speaking and since I'd be on my feet all day and I absolutely LOVE the look that they helped me come up with for the day.




Leopard Tank Top- Zara
The Flirt Skinny Jean- Old Navy
Leopard Heels- Dune via TK Maxx
Braided Bead Bracelet-Bijou Brigitte 

OMG I love this top SO much. I didn't realize it had tiny silver skulls on it until it arrived and I literally squealed outloud when I opened the package! Secret Sales originally sent me a maxi skirt to wear with it but I felt it made the look a bit to blah so I changed it up with skinny jeans and leopard heels. While we were in Spain I got a leopard tank to wear underneath and peek through the rips and this awesome bracelet. I love that neon is on trend again and I feel like these beads, braided is a funky twist and a pop of colour. I felt super comfortable and confidant all day and love how it all came together.

I'm so grateful for Sodastream sponsoring me to attend and TK Maxx and Secret Sales helping be look stylish while there! I never would have worn a sheer backed dress or a ripped top before but I'm so glad I did. Are there any styles you've been reluctant to try but then loved?

Oh my goodness, those ears are absolutely fabulous as is the whole outfit! Despite all the travelling, you look really fresh and relaxed (and happy!). And those leopard heels...my guilty pleasure! Gutted I missed it as we were away. Hopefully next year. x

I've been dying to see this post! Your dress for the BiBs was just gorgeous I love it. And good choice with the skinnies with that amazing top on the Saturday the hint of leopard makes it such an awesome outfit. I'm so glad you had a good weekend and I hear that Feminist Friday is set to make a comeback too? Yay! Oh and I hope you had a lovely birthday yesterday x

I just love the kitty ears!! Am having a major love affair for hair bling right now, plus leopard print always rocks. You look lovely. Linked up with my 2 different blogs with 2 different outfits - date night and supermarket style! Have a great week, and happy belated birthday too!

Melaina25 said...

Those are some gorgeous outfits. Loving the kitten ears. And guess what I've even linked up x

Melaina25 said...

You looked wonderful! Neon is my afraid to try - I just never seem to get the right balance and it just seems boring to wear it with all black. Maybe I need some accessories like you :)

Melaina25 said...

I love the cat ears! It was an awards show. You had to go big or go home!

Looks like a super fun time. I love metallics for Spring/Summer/Whenever as well. The cat ears are just everything.

Melaina25 said...

It's the animal print specifically leopard or cheetah! lol! I'm always scared to try but zebra was fine (which is weird). I really like your shoes though...Btw, the event looks like fun! You are definitely rocking the night. :)
