Ah Friday, my old friend you.
I’m v much looking forward to pulling my Harry Potter pyjama bottoms higher than my belly button, lighting a few candles and eating my way through the rest of the box of chocolates Chris got me for Valentine’s Day (the Lindt dessert selection for anyone like TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE CHOCOLATE, and I can confirm the meringue and creme brulee ones are A+++).
We actually celebrated Valentine’s Day the weekend before the official date, mostly so that we could go out, get a bit sozzled, and stay up late without worrying about the dread of work the next day.
We booked a 9pm table at my fave Ipswich restaurant – Aqua Eight – which does some of the best Thai food, and even better cocktails.
And started the night at Vodka Revs (because we v classy) where Chris made us order shots with every cocktail we ordered. So that set us up nicely for the evening, eh?
Anyway, I thought I’d share what I wore for date night because I freakin’ love this ASOS jumpsuit. I ordered it in both the standard and petite styles, and opted to keep the petite in a size 12. LOOK HOW SASSY IT IS. It’s also really, really damn comfy, and quite roomy should you ahem, eat a four-course Thai meal.
I had to pick it off the floor and observe for massaman curry stains before heading out to shoot the look with Debs earlier this week.
You’ll be pleased to hear that your girl did good and LOOK, no stains.
I teamed it with my red mid heels from River Island (now sold out but similar here), that black blazer I wear all the ruddy time, and this studded bag from Dune, which I’m fairly certain will be hitting stores any day now.
OMG and I also wore the most babin’ smokey eye. I used a shadow stick by The Estee Edit in ‘Spiced‘ and it was a bit out there for me, but made me feel a bit sexy and like I could actually y’know, do make-up.
We dined like kings, we chatted about the future, then we stumbled home, got into bed and at about 2am I crawled into the spare bed because the cats were taking up all the space and looked super cute but I was hot and flustered and, well, a bit drunk. Lolz.
