I'm not the luckiest when it comes to birthdays, and this year in typical fashion, I spent my birthday in A&E. Long story short, I somehow managed to tear the ligaments in my knee (don't ask) and whilst I really couldn't care less about my birthday's, it wasn't exactly the first choice of places to spend my time in!
Before you wack the violins out, I wasn't telling you that for sympathy, it was my long winded way of leading into a post that should have gone up a while ago, what I wore to a casual birthday meal. Two weeks of complete rest (bar the odd shopping trip) ice, elevation and all that jazz later, I finally hobbled out for a belated/mum's 50th birthday meal!
I went to one of my favourite Gluten-free restaurants - Cotto, on Westminster Bridge Road - which deserves a whole bloody blog, let alone a mere post, to itself! A post will be on it's way soon...but for now, I'll leave you with what I was wearing. (Can't help but feel like a bit of a perve when you word it like that)....
Some may say I deliberately shot this in front of a scenic backdrop to distract from my dishevelled, windswept, 'dragged through a hedge backwards' appearance. They would be correct!
Ghost face anyone? The only picture I could find with the gilet done up, which looking back I actually much prefer. In other words, a massive OOTD fail!

Good news girls!! I've found the cure to disguising a washed out, haggard, bedraggled and let's be honest, hungover face. Shove your affro in front of it!
Top and Gilet: Primark
Faux leather trousers (pleather...love that word!): H&M
Boots: Ebay (bargain central!)
Frizzy hair, mulled wine and chocolate induced bloated face...and a new years resolution to try and take much better/even slightly acceptable OOTD pictures: All my own!
Hope you enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading!
P.S Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
