So this weekend turned out to be a bit of an exciting one for me as I was lucky enough to win a pair of VIP tickets to the In Love With Fashion Charity football event... A very lucky me indeed. Having never been to a football match before I wasn't too sure what to wear, but seeing as there was going to be an entire football team full of celebs, I wanted to make an effort and dress to impress. In Love With Fashion also put on an after party for those attending, so it was really key that I wore something that was a little more on the dressy side, but not too full on.
Lucky for me the weather was on my side yesterday, the sun was out and it wasn't too chilly so I decided to wear my Chelsea Girl (River Island) embroidered dress. For me this is the perfect autumn dress as the colour is spot on for this time of year. The embroidered detailing gives this dress that vintage feel to it and allows this dress to be dressed up a little without it looking to over the top. The sheer sleeves have to be my favourite thing about this dress and its detailing like this makes this dress just that extra bit special.
I've paired the dress with a little waist band just to cinch in at the waist a little, even though it does have an elasticated waist that will extenuate your waistline. And of course no autumn outfit is complete without a perfect pair of boots and I have been loving my new super comfy platform ones, also from River Island. I think the boots really complete this outfit and even though they give me an few good extra inches in height, the raised platform makes walking in them a dream.
I had such a lovely day at the celebrity football match, everyone who went to watch was dressed to impress and I was pretty pleased with my outfit choice.
I would love to know your thoughts on this outfit ladies, do you like the dress as much as I do? Or are you a fan of the boots? Be sure to let me know
