On Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the NW Blogger meet up in Liverpool (more to come on that in my next post) which I’d been looking forward to for months. Of course when you’re going to be meeting up with a bunch of fellow bloggers you want to look your best, but comfort is also an important factor, especially when using public transport. Footwear was the starting point for choosing my outfit, and although I have a few pairs of flats I couldn’t resist wearing these new ones from Clarks which I bought in the sale the previous day. Despite my better judgement I made the rookie error of wearing new shoes without testing them out properly beforehand…I was lulled into a false sense of security by how comfortable they felt, but by the time I got home they had rubbed my heels and made them quite sore! So my top tip is always wear shoes you’ve broken in before attempting to walk any distance in them! I wanted to wear one statement item and keep the rest of the outfit simple, so I opted for this frilled teale top from the Per Una Speziale range at Marks and Spencer – it’s really comfortable due to the stretch material, but the detailing makes a nice focal point for the outfit. A pair of skinny cropped jeans in dark denim and my trusty navy Zara blazer kept the look on the smart side of casual. I took a big bag so I could fit my camera in it as well as all the usual stuff us ladies can never be without!

Have you been to a blogger event? What did you wear? Let me know in the comments. I’ll be posting about the event later this week and showing you what was in the goody bag!
