Hardwick Hall Charity Event

Dress: Topshop, Cuff: New Look, Earrings: Vivienne Westwood, Heels: Asda (not shown)

 Hello lovelies!
Please excuse the fact the quality of these photographs are not upto scratch. Reason being that I didn't have time to get any outfit photos at the start of the night as I had a couple of the girls from work over before hand to all get ready together which was really cute but that also means I didn't get a chance to take any photos of what I wore, so I had to take these once I got home. Dedicated ;)


Last night was so amazing! I attended a charity ball with people from work which was raising money for NSPCC and it was held at Hardwick Hall which was a gorgeous venue and was next to a lake which looked so pretty on the evening. We all decided to go all out and get really dressed up for the occasion and personally I think we all looked fab! It was a really fun event, especially the dancing towards the end and was lovely to spend more time with my fave girls. I'm one very happy lady :D

I had spent a month trying to decide on an outfit and was in debate about how formal I would go. Conveniently I have been having a HUGE room clear out and stumbled upon this old dress from Topshop which I've had for about 2 years now and was convinced by the girls and my Mam to wear it. I did team the dress with some nude heels but I didn't choose to show them as my dress covered them anyway. I decided to keep my jewellery minimal so I decided on small earrings and this cuff I bought in town the other day.
