An Evening With Friends

As my mountain of work piles up and the deadline edges closer (21st July!) I thought I'd show you a couple of photos taken last night at my friend Amy's World Cup Party. I'm going to see my boyfriend's little brother's end of term performance at his school tonight so I unfortunately don't have time to take proper outfit photos today! It will resume tomorrow though!

I've known these girls since Nursery and we've been friends since. We've been through so much together that I often think of them as more like family! We've been to nursery, primary school and secondary school together, and the girl on the right (her name is Tasha) even goes to the same University as me! It was a really nice evening of catching up, drinking cocktails and running in every so often when we heard all the boys making noises at the TV. I should have got more photos but I was obviously distracted!

My friend Amy (left) was wearing the most gorgeous kimono. It was a bright sea-blue colour with embroidered red roses and red detailing at the end of the sleeves. She said she got it from a place named ETTE, which I'd never heard of, but since going on their website I think it's a place I will be getting used to! They search internationally for amazing vintage and handmade pieces.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
