I have a couple of dressy occasions coming up over the next few weeks – the first is the launch of the ship Royal Princess, which is going to be named by the Duchess of Cambridge in Southampton on Thursday. And the second is that I’m a finalist in the Brit Mums ‘Brilliance in Blogging’ awards in the ‘travel’ category and there’s an awards ceremony to attend. As anyone who reads this blog knows, travel is HUGELY important to me, in many ways my biggest blogging raison d’etre, so being acknowledged and recognised for my travel blogging is a real boost.
Anyway, the fab peeps at Boden offered to send me a lovely outfit to wear to these special occasions, and I chose this beautiful Brompton dress in multi-wow floral, which is a silk mix…
…and this gorgeous Chelsea bag in Champagne pink (Chelsea and Champagne – two of my favourite things!) which is incredibly roomy and shiny. I absolutely love it.
And look at the lining! It has London scenes on it! It’s like it was MADE for me!
So what do you think? A dress and bag fit for a Queen – and the Duchess of Cambridge, yes?
