A Night at the Paralympics

Hello Lovelies!

If you follow me on twitter or read my last post then you'll know that on Friday night I toddled up to London with my boyfriend to see a night of athletics at the Paralympics. Well it was so incredible that I thought I'd share a little Paralympic outfit/picture heavy (sorry!) post with you...

Crop- Topshop
Shorts- Levi vintage
Loafers- Primark
Belt- New Look
Bag- Zara

Outfit wise I wanted to be patriotic in red, white and blue, but as I was with a boyfriend who wouldn't also want to dress up like a crazy brit I kept it subtle and casual with my new white Topshop crop tee, blue vintage levi shorts and red/coral kate moss lipstick. I also found some of my mum's union jack jewellery and had a couple of flags stashed in my beautiful Zara shopper basket bag so I could wave them around like a loon at every opportunity! I was so surprised and happy that the weather was good enough for me to wear my favourite summer combo of cropped top and high waisted bottoms and looking at the weather today I think I'll be able to wear crops and shorts for a while longer before autumn sets in, lovely stuff. Oh and I also took my new Primark loafers for a test run and they proved to be very comfy and sturdy, yay for bargain Primarini shoes! The actual trip to the park and athletics we watched was amazing, I saw the big names such as Oscar Pistorius and Richard Whitehead race which was so inspirational, finally got to visit the biggest Mcdonald's in the world which I had been far too excited about haha and took part in many audience mexican waves (or as I accidentally called them, american waves). All in all it was an amazing once in a lifetime experience and I'm just so glad we went :)

Have any of you had the chance to go and see it?

I'm home alone with the boyfriend this weekend so I've just been having a lovely unproductive time watching films, eating cookie dough ice cream and sunbathing. Back to the healthy eating and exercise tomorrow I promise...

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
Love Meg
