Let them eat cake!

Yesterday I met some of my favourite bloggers for afternoon tea at Snuggle Muffin in Glasgow.  I have been keen to try it out since the #ditchthediet night in January which I couldn't make.  I was not disappointed - sandwiches, chocolate brownies, cupcakes and of course scones with cream and jam, plus unlimited refills on tea.  I was in heaven!

Along with the delicious food, the afternoon was filled with great chat and of course photographing the food we were eating.

It was a beautiful day in Glasgow, the sun was out and it was actually warm!  After we finished our afternoon tea Jennifer showed us a great spot that would be good for photographs.  I love when you find hidden gems in a busy city.

My outfit for the day was a Primark dress that I bought a couple of months ago.  It seems when it comes to dresses with collars I am unable to resist them.  I was instantly drawn to this frock because of the great bright, summery print, and of course the collar!  Haha.  It is also the perfect cake eating dress as it is a shift style so can hide a food baby.

I teamed my dress with a pair of pale blue ankle socks and my silver brogues, I even braved it and had bare legs for the first time this year.  My silver brogues are about 6 years old and I think this was maybe the third time I have worn them.  I loved them when I got them but didn't have the guts to wear such look at me shoes.

Dress - Primark
Socks - Topshop
Brogues - Office (old, similar ones here)

I hope everyone had a good weekend and is ready to get back to it tomorrow, aren't Monday's the best!?
