First, is this lovely blogger event I attended on Friday past at the Malone Lodge Hotel here in Belfast. I haven't been to many blogger events or meet ups but the idea of a pyjama party hosted in a hotel to see some of the FABB girls sounded too good to pass up! My biggest regret was not being able to stay the night but it was lovely to see everyone, meet new people and luxuriate in the newly renovated Malone Lodge.
I have always known of the hotel as it's very close to where I live and, as a result, we always have recommended it to family and friends. Situated on the leafy Eglantine Avenue, it is a nice alternative to the city centre while being close to everything as Belfast is not so big! It has always had a warm, welcoming feel due in no small part to being family run, and it was that same warmth that greeted us on Friday.
Treated to cocktails, cake and a beautiful meal, we were shown the beautiful bedrooms and new function rooms of the hotel before settling in to watch Breakfast At Tiffanys with cake, popcorn and fizz aplenty, secreted away in a private function room.

As I said, I sadly couldn't stay over and lounge in my pyjamas with the others so here is what I wore.
My beloved orange heels were my nod to it being a Friday night but the jeans and shirt were for comfort. It was my first time wearing the shirt and I think I love it...any opinions? It is Juicy Couture which isn't a brand I have ever been attracted to but the shade of blue, the silk, and the complete bargain price I bought it for on Brand Alley enticed me to go a little R'n'B y'all so indulge me!
It was lashing down so it was the perfect night to cosy up indoors with a classic movie.
