What I’m wearing to (a little bit) of BritMums

By | June 4, 2014

In just over two weeks I’ll be getting onto a train and heading into London, I commuted for a few years twice before so it should be a proverbial “piece of cake” for me, shouldn’t it?

Not this time. I’m going to a teensy bit of BritMums Live, the Brilliance In Blogging bit as a finalist in the Health category!!


I feel a bit of a fraud that I’m not going to the full conference, part of me really, really wants to, but the more sensible part knows that it wouldn’t be practical from a T and D viewpoint. Maybe next year..

Anyway, I AM going to the BiBs part and really looking forward to catching up with bloggers that I’ve only chatted with online before. This is also my first blogger event and I’m feeling a tad nervous.

What I’ll be wearing:

I have two potential outfits, both from Phase Eight (I love the clothes in their shops).

This is number one:


The above is also what I’m wearing to T’s school appeal place meeting on Monday, it looks really nice on. I don’t usually go for patterns but liked this as soon as I saw it. With some nude heeled shoes.

Option 2 is if I’m having a wobbly day:

The bonus to the maxi dress is that I can rock my FitFlops with it:


So, either way, if you see a nervous-looking woman (I’m definitely no longer a girl) sneaking in at the back, in blue, it’s probably me!

Linking up here with Mari’s linky.

Ps. I haven’t been sponsored by Phase Eight, just love their clothes!

NO contest! Go with the maxi! And since I’m hosting the BiB’s, it’s a rule that you HAVE to listen! 😉 Seriously – LOVING the glitz on the second, and I’m trying to get everyone to glitz up a bit, since we all deserve to be celebrated, right?! And don’t be nervous. It’s FUN! You can always come and find me – I’ll be the one looking lost too – glitzy, but lost 😉 x

Aww thanks Katy, good luck with hosting, maxi dress was always the fave 😉

Love the maxi dress, it looks comfortable with a touch of sparkle!

Thanks, it’s lovely on 🙂

Loving the spotted dress (is that the maxi dress? I have no idea about fashion!). I’m nervous too as this is my first time to a blogging event, and only my second time in London! Last time was 11 years ago and I wasn’t alone, so I’m somewhat apprehensive this time! 🙂

Thanks, hope the journey goes well for you, nervously looking forward to it 🙂

Love this – as long as I remember, I’ll know how to find you now!! 🙂

Sorry we didn’t meet up, hopefully next year x

Both outfits look fabulous. I do like the bling on the maxi dress, but the spotty one also looks gorgeous. Congratulations on making the finals and good luck! x

Thanks, went for the maxi dress in the end and regretted it on the train on the way home (puddles of yuck!)
