Shorts in the City

I have just returned from a fan-dabby day in London Town, where I was fortunate enough to be attending The Body Shop event at the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair. A gaggle of beauty bloggers convene to hear about some of the Body Shop's new products and ventures, whilst swooning over some makeup tutorials from makeup artist Chase Aston and prettifying some cute cupcakes whilst slurping on champers.

I know...I know...but someone's got to do it! :) 

Fully detailed post on the event will be up this weekend, but just wanted to give y'all a sneak peek of my outfit.

Heart leotard - Topshop
High-waisted shorts - River Island
I really enjoy these shorts and adore the military gold detailing at the front!

Gladiator sandals - River Island
Pearls - Topshop
Tan - Xen Tan Dark Lotion!

Models Own - Nude Beige
I thought I would go for quite a sophisticated nail for the day's festivities (puts down the neon pink...!) but I really love this murky colour!

As I was trotting down New Bond Street, I got accosted my this woman bearing an intimidatingly huge camera, and wanted to know if she could feature me on her fashion blog. 
Flattered and feeling slightly awkward, I merrily posed whilst she frenziedly snapped me and made me work the camera - "look left, turn right, chin down....SMILE!" ARGH!

Now running rather late for our Body Shop event engagement, we walked and talked whilst she conducted a mini interview with me! I felt totally out of my comfort zone but she was lovely, and it was a fun, unexpected experience prior to the day's event.

Her blog is here if you want to have a nosey and I will holler when my feature is up!
