OOTD: Weekend at The Savoy

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog. 
Where do I begin? I guess I'll start this post by saying that last weekend was truly fabulous. I took a visit to London with the rest of my family in celebration of my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary at the oh so fancy Savoy Hotel. Not only did a venue so incredible as the Savoy make this event one to be remembered, but being surrounded with all my family and such amazing grandparents (who have been married for 60 YEARS...an insane milestone) meant every moment was one to be treasured. Needless to say, since arriving back at school this week I haven't stopped wishing I could do it all over again! However, with particularly special occasions always comes the pressure of wanting to look our absolute best. So when an invitation to the Savoy came through the post at the beginning of this year I have to be honest that one of my first thoughts was indeed: 'what the hell am I going to wear?' 
After months of scrolling through ASOS, tearing through numerous clothes racks and visiting almost every high street store imaginable, finally a trusty visit to the haven that is ZARA saved my outfit once and for all. 
As you can see in the pictures above, I wore a pair of three-quarter length wide leg trousers from ZARA. I'd also like to add how comfy and non-restrictive these were, which is a must when your spending the entire day in an outfit and eating a very large (but very delicious) three-course meal. The main aspect of my outfit was a subtly embroidered jacket, with ruffled sleeves and colourful stitching patterned horizontally across the jacket. The jacket was once again from ZARA, which I wore with a plain white vest body underneath. I accessorised this outfit with a slim lilac clutch designed by Lulu Guinness, this was super handy for keeping essentials such as my phone, lipgloss etc and also had a contemporary gold zip using the statemented Lulu Guinness lips logo. 
I hope you enjoyed this post! If you'd like to see more posts like this be sure to drop me a comment or follow my bloglovin'.

  1. I've heard only wonderful things about the Savoy! All the way to it's architectural design, the food, and how kind everyone is who works there. It's definitely a place to stay at whilst in London. Anyhow, congratulations to your grandparents – 60 years IS truly a milestone. I'm a huge fan of your trousers and wearing them in general. I think in the past they're bee disregarded in how great of an option they are for both formal and casual occasions. Have a lovely week!
