Side Street Style

A family lifestyle, interiors & travel blog


Cardiff Blogger Meetup Style

So on the saturday just past was an amazing little meet up of fashion/beauty and lifestyle bloggers in Cardiff, I had met quite a few before but it's great talking to people you have never met and making new blogger friends. Everyone looked very stylish and this is what I wore to the meet...

black wedges

I went for a sort of high street style with a TopShop denim jacket, Next white tee, thrifted River Island skinny jeans, Collection by Debenhams Bag, Joe Browns ring and HM wedge shoes.

I opted for wedges this time as at every other meet or event I am often the shortest so I just wanted to add a little bit of height and they are comfy so even though it was quite a long day I didn't have any problems being on my feet most of the time. The meet started at The Brewhouse - formally the Rock Hard Cafe and it was really nice to see new life coming into this great building. They had some great deals on cocktails - I went for the Cucumber crush - so yummy and they had the Lush Ladies there providing some very nice hand massaged and face packs. We all had a little bite to eat - I went for the Pumpkin and Spinach salad which was very good.

After the food, chat and cocktails we headed over to Crabtree and Evelyn to have a little look at their current range of products and for some demo's and pamper treats and then Me and Georgina from Makeup Pixi3 had a little look around TK MAXX. After some shopping we met back up with the rest of the bloggers for the St Davids Fashion show which happened to be running on the same day as the meet - bonus! Here are a few of my favourite looks from the show...

Colourful mens wear on show.

The show had lots of bright and summery colours and themes, I loved all the bikini's on show and Monsoons boho beach chic. We were also lucky enough to have a quick Q&A with the shows stylist JP - who had amazing shoes and socks by the way!

We were also given amazing goodies bags packed with tones of lovely stuff, which I cannot wait to try out. The highlight of it was the Ollie and Nic purse and Birchbox which had a lovely Weleda and Natio samples - two of my favourite natural and ethical brands. The googie bags also had a Benefit beyond mascara and Elemis shower cream which I cannot wait to try and some lovely little Thomas Sabo scents and lip gloss.

Inside the bags were also some little cross earrings made by Cardiff Blogger Jenny from The Pulse of Fashion - love them

  1. The earrings by Jenny are beautiful, aren't they? I've been wearing mine religiously.
