What I wore for my Birthday

It’s a whole week since my 30th birthday and I was planning to get this birthday outfit post up sooner but I’ve been a busy Amy, working on some really fun projects! I can’t wait to share them with you soon… ok you’ve been so good…here is a little hint…… I’ve only been hanging out at London Fashion Week.

More about that soon, I promise, but for now, I guess I had better tell you all about this birthday look. I was fortunate enough to receive as Christmas and birthday gifts some ASOS vouchers, so I got online and ordered a couple bits and bobs.

I chose this cute cropped jumper, it’s a great shade of grey with fab embroidery. I also chose a pair of ripped mom jeans. I guess they’re re not my usual thing, but I’ve been hankering for a pair of cool jeans for a while now, I thought to myself “it’s worth a shot, lets try them out?” I’m so glad I did because I love them, even though I am in between sizes – the smaller pair were that little bit too tight and these are a little baggy on my legs and waist- however they fit perfectly over my huge hips. It’s so hard finding well fitting jeans when you are a curvy Miss like me!

I have noticed a bit of a change in my taste lately, perhaps it turning 30, who knows? I’m exploring two very recent obsessions, the first is layering grey on grey, I’m really diggin’ creating outfits with this effect, you should try it! My other fascination is a great feeling for metallic accessories, made easier thanks to my dear friend Allen, as he gifted me these booties in silver! I’m sure you’ll agree, it would have been rude not to take them for a test run straight away. I did and I can confirm to you right here and now that I bloody love them.

To complete the look, I’m wearing another birthday present, this adorable and delicate Amethyst ring from Pandora. Amethyst is my birthstone, it’s also my favourite colour stone and it works so well with my engagement ring. It’s a nice reminder of my bestie Clare, as it was a great present from her. I received some lovely gifts and cards and had great fun celebrating. It was a smashing birthday, thank you for all your lovely wishes.

Don’t forget to stay tuned for all my LFW posts, now to get down to editing!
