My mum hit her big 50 this week and we went to dine at the Ritz.
One of my mum's closest friends came down to London to celebrate with her and we made the day extra memorable by going to places we've never been before. We had a nice girly day out which consisted of shopping and a LOT of food - Japanese BBQ for lunch, tea at Sketch London and dinner at the Ritz.

I have never ever imagined myself dining at the Ritz before - it's the ultimate luxury hotel in London. So well known, so high class and costly. Of course I was surprised when I was told the night before that we were going to eat dinner there. Apparently the 'London Restaurant Festival' is taking place this week, so we were able to make a reservation at a discounted price!
For a special day like that, I wore a pair of lovely earrings from Floralpunk; I'm always wearing studs so it was a nice change. I also put on a nice white blouse which I'm currently in love with. It has 3/4 length sleeves and adds a touch of elegance to the outfit. Outerwear was necessary since it was raining that day, therefore I opted for an off-white leather jacket (I didn't want to wear my usual black one). I haven't worn this jacket much, but I purchased it a few years back when studs were apparently really trendy. I like the crop edge and sleeves! I also wore comfortable black jeans and my trusty platform boots. I definitely would've worn heels if we weren't walking around central during the day.
We had an amazing experience; we obviously expected no less from a fine place like this. The waiters were ever so attentive...as I was about to sit down after returning from the restroom, one of them made a beeline towards my seat to push it in for me. I was confused, thinking that it was my mum standing next to me all of a sudden! The food was good and the atmosphere was great, but I did feel rather intimidated during the first hour since it was so high class. I'm definitely not used to luxurious things!
