Motel Blogger Brunch, Afternoon Tea at Le Chalet & A Pretty White Dress!

I am already back into Spring mode, Spring is easily my favourite month because it means I can wear white more often! Last week I was invited to London for an exciting event with Motel and I also stopped off for some afternoon tea with one of my favourite girlies. It was a chilly day when I shot this look so I teamed this gorgeous white dress with my favourite knee highs and my trusty leather jacket. I also added my current favourite chunky jumper for a nice layered effect! Let's talk white dresses, brunch and afternoon tea!

On the day, I wore this white dress with my chunky jumper and trusty leather jacket.

The jumper is from ASOS but it's actually a New Look number - I couldn't believe it! So many people on Instagram (www.instagram.com/emshelx) have asked where it's from! I don't shop at New Look just because it's not my first choices of places to shop but I am more than impressed with the quality of this jumper - I love how it looks too (it's also super cosy). You can buy it online here

I layered the jumper over this gorgeous skater dress from UK Glamorous, you can get it online here. I am obsessed with skater dresses, they are easily my favourite - they're so floaty and pretty - perfect to wear in the day and in the evening.

I absolutely love these boots, you can get them online here and here. I feel like they add so much to an outfit but they also keep me warm too on chilly days! My leather jacket is an old one from Zara, I've literally had it for 5 years! You can similar online here.

Thanks to Felicity Rudd for the above photos.

I hopped on a train and headed to the Motel event in London to be greeted by lots of lovely blogger girlies....

The event was at The Folly, an incredible venue in London. The menu was truly delicious.

We nibbled on croissants whilst we chatted all things bloggy.

Everyone Instagrammed their food and their gorgeous pink personalised boxes... 

The green juice was incredible, my kind of juice and the perfect way to start the day.

I went for the poached eggs

I was sat between the lovely Danielle Peazer and Carly Rowena - Danielle's food was way more Instagrammable than mine so I took a photo of it haha.

We all sat with our beautiful boxes... you can see my lovely friend Sammi in the background who was sat just opposite me, it was so good to catch up with her - you may remember her from my London Fashion Week blog post last year! 

I captured Carly opening her box up...

Motel treated us to so many amazing treats...

I am far too excited to get stuck into this amazing box. Here's a sneak peek of the outfit I was sent... coming to a blog post near you soon! You can get it online here.

I am obsessed with the Little Miracles drink I received, it's so delicious, I want an endless supply! Most of you will know that Nip+Fab are one of my favourite brands ever too so it was exciting to see them in the box! I've always wanted to try Frank body scrub too so I can't wait to use that. The Polar box has an incredible little fitness track band in it, small but powerful and I can't wait to try that too! 

We all sat and gazed at our boxes for quite some time! 

I loved checking out the new swimwear range - I will have to treat myself to some of it for my travels this year! (Yes, expect lots more travelling posts from me!)

After we scoffed all the food

It was time to get excited about Motel's new range... it certainly got me excited for Summer!

You can check out Motel's site here, they have some insanely beautiful new pieces! 

After a beautiful morning with some incredibly lovely girls, it was time to head to Selfridges to catch up with one of my favourite people... someone who has featured on my blog lots recently!

Me and Victoria sipped tea (a large mug of melted chocolate for her)

I dropped my strawberry into my tea somehow, a hilarious moment and you just had to be there.

We were absolutely stuffed afterwards.

The venue was absolutely stunning, designed to be a ski chalet in the sky - big thanks to Victoria for introducing me to it. I already can't wait for our next brunch date!

Thank you for reading you lovely people - I had the loveliest day catching up with friends, old and new, spinning around in my pretty dress, eating far too much and lusting over everything from Motel!

Lots of love, Em x

Do you love wearing white too? How do you feel about trusty leather jackets? Do you love knee high boots? Do you like Motel? Are you also an afternoon tea fan?
