When this was booked and planned we all thought 'August, even if it's not sunny it'll be warm' HAH!
All my clothes are either non-dressy or for the height of summer, I can't afford to buy new stuff, please can you help me sort out a weekend wardrobe for the following:
Friday - get to hotel, drinks at posh city bar followed by dinner at Browns
Saturday - wafting around the hotel spa for most of the hens, staying in bed and catching up on 3 years of sleep for me, lunch, more wafting/sleeping, then dinner and cabaret/disco at Madame JoJos (is it dead dressy there? I only seem to have an incredibly posh backless evening gown or a load of thin summer cotton frocks - can't wear the one lovely outfit I've got as it's for the wedding reception!)
Sunday - riding in Hyde Park - that I can cover, thank god I still have my jodhs etc!
So what to take? I have a small window for shopping tomorrow morning, have some debenhams vouchers, but I don't know what to get... am size 10/12, apple, 5'4...
I was planning on bringing 1 pair of jeans, travelling in a Henleyish top, wearing similar around the hotel during the day, I was thinking I have similar to this in plain black and these for Friday, would I look an idiot/freeze to death?
I don't have any going out type skirts, all my trousers are jeans (or sailor type trousers from Boden - would I get away with them and a nice top?)
Thanks MNP - will have a looksee for black keks and sparkly top when I'm out tomorrow - have some nice black suede ballet flats, so long as it doesn't rain I should be okay...
I have a little black shrug thing to go with the black maxi, trouble is it's v. thin cotton and picks up every crumb of fluff/lint going, so although it looks okay on, I know I'll look like a bag lady by the end of the evening... Is also v. long with a high tripupability factor, despite massively high wedge platform sandals, so I can foresee disaster following the drinking sesh!
