OOTD | May Day Bank Holiday.

After being cooped up for weeks just staring at my laptop, and not doing anything other than uni work and going to the gym, it was so nice to get out on Bank Holiday Sunday to see my friends and have a break away from the doom and gloom of assignments. It was one of my closest friend’s 23rd birthday and she was having a BBQ before we headed out to town. 

Dress – similar | Bag – similar | Shoes – available here | Watch – available here

In typical Jessie fashion I was running late whilst getting ready for the BBQ. Just as I was about to leave I decided I didn’t like my previous outfit and after trying on everything in my wardrobe I opted to wear this lacy dress from last year’s Lipsy London collection. I have only ever worn it once for a wedding and admittedly I felt a little over-dressed for a BBQ, but as we were heading into town afterwards I thought it would be fine. I absolutely love this dress. I personally feel like it fits me well and as it’s so busy you don’t need a load of accessories. I opted to wear a matching coral bag from last year’s River Island collection and some gorgeous barely there shoes which are also from River Island. I love them so much and they are available here.

I decided to behave myself and only had two drinks as I just hate being hungover, but it was a fab night nonetheless, and was so lovely to catch up with the girls. We all met whilst working at The Body Shop and we now have all left and do different things but it’s great that we’re all still friends! We’ve even been to Ibiza together twice and are planning a weekend away for September this year…

For now though it’s back to the books. With three deadlines over the next three weeks I think you could say that the pressure is most certainly on! I just cannot wait for them to be over.

What did you get up to this Bank Holiday?

Lots of love, 

Jessie. xoxo
