Look Of The Day: Silver and SHORTLISTED!! x
Dear Elgin Avenue readers,
A very Happy Monday to you all! (admittedly as I write it has now crept a little in to Tuesday - details details....!)
This Monday is indeed very verrry happy for yours truly as it was announced today that The Elgin Avenue has been shortlisted for the Marie Claire Blog and Twitter Awards I have been telling you so much about!
I am of course absolutely head-over-heels-leaping-over-the-moon happy and it really is down to all of your amazing support, and the support from my friends and fellow bloggers, that has meant we could get this far so a huge thank you to every one that has voted!
9 other fab blogs have made it to this stage - you can read the full list here - congratulations to all the other nominees - I look forward to seeing you all at the Awards where we will find out who the over all winner is! How exciting!
Once I managed to get my pulse to a normal rate following the announcement, my lovely beau and I set off to celebrate with a lovely lunch at South Kensington's Le Pain Quotidien. I am an absolute Le Pain devotee and today did not disappoint - I think it tasted even better as I was eating through an ear- to - ear grin!
Shoes, Tote and Tux Jacket: Zara, Skirt: Urban Outfitters seen here too, Jumper and Belt: Vintage, Trilby: Christie's seen here too, Fur Stole: taken from my John Lewis Collection Coat seen here
Nippy though it is, I chose to debut my new silver pumps with a flippy skirt and a cosy jumper/blazer/stole combination to keep the chill at bay! I was chuffed as chips when I spotted these silver Zara beauts having lusted after the silver pumps Miss Olivia Palermo wore in this pic below - Miss Palermo's silver wanders are Sergio Rossi but I was lucky enough to get mine for a snip of the designer price on the High Street and I L-O-V-E them!! It is always a pleasure to dress up for a lazy sunny lunch!
Yum Yum Lunch!!
We rounded the day off with a trip to The Natural History Museum which was ahhhmazing - so so much interesting goings-on!
And so as the day is increasingly becoming Tuesday - eek how does that happen?! - I must take myself to bed and get some snoozes before the morning!
Thank you again to each and every person who voted in the Marie Claire Blog Awards I am truly touched by your support!
All my love,
P.S. Keep an eye out for my Birthday post soon to come!
