What I Planned to Wear: Next Blogger Network Workshop



I was really hoping that the predicted storms wouldn't  prevent me getting to London  this morning ready for the Next Blogger Network Workshop.

I've been looking forward to it for ages, I couldn't wait to see both old and new blogger friends and to finally meet the Next team.  I also had my outfit planned and have been so excited about wearing it.

I have been really boring recently and have stuck to  black and  darker colours, however since being colour analysed I decided to make an effort to buy new colours when clothes shopping.




I decided for this Next event just to go for it and buy a red (one of "my colours") dress.  There were lots of really smart ones, but I liked this more casual Red Skater Dress.  I chose it for it's comfort factor- important when facing a long journey on the Megabus and also it's flattering shape.  I will have to make a short video clip of the dress to give you some idea of the material, it is far better quality than other jersey dresses I have worn so falls really nicely.



I teamed my red skater dress with black opaque tights and Black Wedge Long Boots.  The wedge heel makes these so easy and quiet to walk in (I feel conscious when I "clip clop" into a room).


I also decided last minute to add my old black cardigan to the outfit- all the talk of storms was making me feel chilly!


I did buy this Black Filigree Necklace to compliment my new outfit.  However it was too heavy to team with the mid neckline of the skater dress-my neck wasn't long enought to carry it off- so I'm going to have to wait until I wear a lower cut dress or top to wear it.  It's a lovely piece!  I swapped it for a chain of black beads instead.

However, with all the storm warnings and bridge closures it would be unwise for me to travel on a double decker in Gale Force winds for a very long overnight journey so I'm very sad to say that I'll be missing this event.

I hope everyone has a lovely time and I'll be looking out for all the tweets and write ups of the sessions from the amazing speakers.

Have fun Next Bloggers and have a cocktail for me!  :-)
