what I wore to a cocktail party

River Island came to my rescue last week when I was looking for an outfit for my daughter's 21st birthday cocktail party. I fell in love with this cream blouse with the gold tone metal plate detail. It has padded cap sleeves and a zip back fastening; very different to what I would normally buy. 

Unfortunately you can't see the patent and mock croc panels of the skirt as these were very quick grab shots. The light was fading fast and I wanted to get some photos to show you this outfit. I love pencil skirts, they are just so feminine.

These shoes are my favourite pair! My daughters bought me these beauties for my birthday last year and I love them. The gold heels go perfectly with the detail in the blouse.

I treated myself to this bag and gold cuff to finish the outfit off and a new manicure to go with it.

Have a lovely day everyone.
