Rik and I celebrated our 8th Anniversary this weekend. I had the biggest surprise ever when he told me we were going to The Ritz! It was all a bit last minute so I didn't have the time to take photos of my outfit that night, but I had the most amazing evening. The atmosphere of that place is indescribable. We had some of the most incredible food i've ever eaten, including a delicious chocolate soufflé for dessert and beautiful cocktails. For anyone wondering, I had a Ritz 100 and Rikki had a Mary Pickford which is the most girlie cocktail you can get! But it was ok as he looked rather handsome in his suit, so I let him off!
We finished the night by dancing to L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole which i've always loved as it's in The Parent Trap (One of my favourite ever films) played by the live band and were then presented with a stunning Happy Anniversary cake which made the evening all the more special.
I was scared that it would be rather pretentious and we would look and feel really out of place, but I honestly couldn't fault it. The staff were so attentive and couldn't do enough for you. I would really recommend it if you want to do something super special for a celebration.
On Saturday evening we went for a more relaxed date to Bluewater AKA our second home. This is where I wore the above outfit. It's quite simple and casual, but I dressed it up with my bag and shoes. The bag was just £7 in the Dorothy Perkins sale, and as it was pink and had a bow on it, I couldn't really pass it up could I? My shoes are from Shopaholics.com and they're the KG by Kurt Geiger Havanas. They're so beautiful and despite the height are really easy to walk in. They have a beautiful faux snake skin strap detail with gold hardware and go with almost any outfit. Shoeaholics.com have really kindly given me a 20% off code to share with you so be sure to use KATESHOE20 to take advantage of that! They also have a new blogger edit where some of their fave bloggers show off their top picks of this season.
I'm also still obsessed with my Steffi super high waisted jeans from Miss Selfridge. They're so comfy, but very figure hugging. I definitely want to get a few more pairs as I feel like i'm living in these right now! My Jacket is from Zara but it's quite old. I had actually put it away in a draw and found it again recently. It was one of those pieces that when I found it, I could't really understand why I had put it away because I love it!
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend whatever you've been up to. Hopefully enjoying this weather whilst it lasts!
Love Kate x
