Style XL and Blog Every Day in August - Day 4

The theme for today is very appropriate! Steph asks "Have you been to any blog related events or are you going to any soon?" Well this weekend I went to the amazing Style XL! It was held in Leicester and organised by the beautiful Leah of 30 Something Curvy Me. It was fun and professional and I'm already looking forward to next year's!

I was lucky enough to model for three brands - Topsy Curvy, Simply Be, and Yours. I will showcase the clothes I wore later on in the month, but for today I'm showing you what I wore to the event.

Lee came with me as I was away last weekend and he missed me. It wasn't exactly his thing so he'd brought his Nintendo DS with him and I bribed him with the promise of food afterwards, but he actually had a really good time and enjoyed watching me on the catwalk!

I wore this Scarlett and Jo dress which I got in the Evans sale a few weeks ago. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The top has a lovely scoop neck, the sleeves are a nice length, and then the skirt is this beautiful satiny floral fabric over a netted underskirt and lining. I felt really pretty, but this is also a really easy dress to wear.

I was really excited to meet a few people at the event that I've only spoken to online before. Annelise was one of them.

Here we are in front of the cupcake stall in our own clothes. I love the t-shirt Annelise is wearing! Her lovely husband Mike took this photo.

After the event Debz had booked a table at a Wetherspoons in Leicester city centre so we went along for food and drinks. I decided on a pitcher of Purple Rain cocktail and it was served in a bucket!

Finally, here's a photo of me and Annelise and Debz, both of whom are really lovely people. It was lovely to meet them and plenty of others!

See you next year!
