What to wear when you meet ..

.. other fashion bloggers? As I am new to all this blogging malarkey it's filling me with slight dread.

I am, however, also very excited to be meeting some great online friends who also happen to be fashion bloggers. I met them all via the internet so that either makes me sound weird or pretty normal if you have met friends this way too.

So, who am I meeting?

School Gate Style     Poppy's Style     Does My Bum Look 40     Susie So So
Style At Every Age     The Flaky Fashionista     Ash Rural Mum Style     GlamRosie 


I always ask myself 'what shall I wear' no matter who I am meeting but because these ladies blog all the time about fashion I am suddenly feeling the pressure a bit.

What I need to remember (and we all have to do this) is that I am me .... I am not her and I'm not that one over there, I'm just me.  If I try and dress like someone I'm not then it will show.  If I feel uncomfortable in clothes then it will show too. And if I feel at all uncomfortable then I will drink too much and make a dick of myself!!!

I will be travelling on the train to London, tube, lunch, drinks, shopping and more drinking and eating - a WHOLE day of all my favourite things - I am very excited.

So, what have been some of my favourite outfits that I could possibly wear? I need to make this decision soon so that I can worry about real things like my actual full day time job!  I also don't want to be delaying my start on Saturday as I stand in front of my wardrobe shouting "I've got nothing to wear"

I think this first one is my favourite out of all the outfits.





The other variety is something around my leather trousers and a blazer with simple grey T and animal print scarf .. but the trousers require heels or shoe boots - both of which are uncomfortable.  I could wear converse for travelling and then put heels on just before I get there?  But will I look like Sue Perkins if I wear this ensemble?

You'd think I have nothing else to fulfill my life the way I obsess at times with 'what shall I wear' - I promise you that with a full time job, a house, 2 children and a husband that works away a lot, I have plenty to do.

So what would YOU wear if you were meeting all the lovely ladies mentioned above?

  2. Ooooh love the look with the white blazer:) I agree trying too hard can be fatal - but I always drink too much and make a dick of myself regardless of what I wear so that at least should make you feel better:) We can try to out-dick each other:) xx

    1. I think comfortable needs to take over a bit with the train/London/alcohol involved!

  6. I like the white blazer look but your first outfit is the one I think you look most comfortable in. All look fab. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday. You're the tall skinny one aren't you?

    1. I LOVE YOU! I am quite tall but not quite so skinny as I used to be - still trying to lose Christmas weight gain but it's relative I know and so yes I am slim!

      See you Sat

  7. You're not alone in your tizz! I've been worrying about this for weeks (there! I've admitted it!) but have finally decided, as you said, that there's no point in pretending to be someone I'm not, so it will be flat knee highs, black jeggings, shirt & jacket. And I'm with the ladies above ... white jacket is my favourite too. How cold is it over there, by the way? Will I need a coat? Helen PS: Can't wait :)

    1. It's going to be cold Helen - layers or a good coat or both! Gloves and scarf too!!

      I **knew** I wouldn't be the only person in the world who was thinking (even if for a brief moment) 'what shall I wear'?!!

  8. Oh wow what a great idea, sounds like you'll have a fab time and yes lots of pictures please :)

    I think all four outfits look lovely, but think you should go with whatever makes you feel most happy and yourself, with comfy shoes for all that shopping!!!!

    Have a great time x

  9. Hi Fiona,

    I love all the outfits you have put together! But I think my favourite is the first one.

    I would love to meet Avril (School Gate Style) and Sharron (Style At Every Age).

    As for the other bloggers, I just haven’t read their blogs...yet! But I’m sure they will be right up my street if anything like yours.
