Shopping in Nudes!

Spent a fab day in Belfast at Victoria Square with my besties Claire & Catherine and my blograts Katie & Gemma. To get some sunny bright shots of my outfit, we headed right to the top of the centre to the viewing platform, which I can’t believe I’ve never done before in all the times I’ve been to Victoria Square. What amazing views of Belfast…and the sun came out while we were up there. Yes – it’s still there behind those rain filled clouds girls!

Wearing my new Room 31 Vero Moda top (thanks to the team there for sending me this for my birthday!). It comes in this peachy/rose colour and also in cream and with VERO50 at the checkout, you get 50% off, making it just £15!
Going with the nude theme, I’ve got my LK Bennett Annina Bag (last seen here) and my M&S pumps (similar from River Island). Jeans from good old H&M, sunnies from M&S and necklace from Boots (yes, the chemist – great jewellery in the sale at the moment. I got this in silver also)

Close up of the top which is chiffon with a built in lining from the bust down and lovely lace detail over the shoulders.

And before you think it was a warm day in Belfast, I also wore my H&M blazer.

Finally got a chance to call to the Bobbi Brown counter at House of Fraser to try out their new Tinted Moisture Balm. It’s gorgeous but a little shiny for my face so I stuck with my long time favourite – Luminous Moisturising foundation

When you’re shopping with kids, it’s the little things that count so it was lovely that the girl on the counter didn’t forget about my 3 year olds who were fascinated by what she was doing to mummy. Sparkly lip gloss was produced and we had two very happy girls.

And it would be SO wrong not to call into Kurt Geiger & try on gorgeous shoes..

  1. Ooooo Avril! KG lust!! The top is gorgeous and it works so well the way you’ve worn it xx

  2. I need that top. Going to get purse right now!!!!!

  3. You look so pretty in this outfit. I love the mix of denim and softer hues. That nudey-pink is so flattering.

    Those shoes at the bottom? TDF. To die for. Salivating over here in the US.

    Glad you all had a great day. :)

  4. I bet I passed you at one stage in Vic square! I was in Dune and Kurt Geiger. Had two pairs of shoes in my hands in Dune… then realised i’d just splurged £400 on my boyfriends birthday treat this week so didn’t really have the funds to buy another two pairs of shoes that I really don’t need. I’m still thinking about them today though and am wondering if I should just go order them. Its almost illegal to leave the Dune sale with nothing.

  5. love that top!!!
    just followed your link & sizes are small, medium etc – do you know what a 12/14 would be? im guessing large. im usually a 12 but sometimes need a 14 if the chest is small fitting.
    not sure I can buy one this month though :( Ive well & truely gone over my clothes budget!

    • Mine is a M and I would be a 10-12 so I would say go for the L. THanks for your lovely comment xx

    • love your blog. im a working mum (15 mnth old boy) who loves clothes, shoes & bags :)
      notice the photos of you & your kids at finaghy primary school – I live near there :)
      huge admiration for you going shopping with twins!

    • Aw, thanks!! If you ever see me around Finaghy, introduce yourself! Would be lovely to meet you. I’m there most days at school drop off/pick up….usually looking hassled and tired lol…x
      PS was easy shopping with the twins because I had my friends with me…no chance of doing it on my own – they’d wreck the place! Avrilx

  6. Lovely outfit. I think your hair looks lovely tied up like that, and it set off the top very nicely.

  7. Lovely shades of nude/pink on you! And love the hair too.

    Hi. That blouse looks lovely on you. I love that vintage look. Haven’t been to Belfast for a while. Usually go for girlie weekend with all my cousins from Donegal but haven’t made it up in a while. Your photos really make me want to go again.

  9. Love this top on you Avril – pretty outfit x

    Thank you Avril. I am now the proud owner of said top and wore it on a ‘date’ with my husband. I would never have known about it except for you and many thanks for the discount code!

    Love the blog!

    • Awww….Julie, that’s brilliant! So glad you enjoy the blog and Room 31 too. The top is all sold out now unfortunately so you were lucky to get one! Thanks for dropping by and commenting – I appreciate it so much! Avril x
