A more personal post from me today. I haven’t talked about my friends on the blog before, but I think it’s about time a did. Meet one of my beautiful and oh so stylish best friends, Suzie. We shot these photos on Saturday after picking up some gorgeous party dresses* from Boohoo. We were off out for brunch and thought what better time to give them a test drive.

Suzie’s sequinned number is super festive and perfect for the run up to Christmas, I was a little jealous when it arrived! I’m really digging how she styled it over jeans and with a bell sleeved shirt underneath. I wouldn’t have thought of styling it like this, but it’s super cool. I love it!

I mentioned the dress that I’m wearing in a previous post (festive party dresses for under £50), and was lucky enough to get my hands on it. It’s the perfect dupe of a Self Portrait dress. It looked nice online, but when it arrived I was even more thrilled; the material is really thick and feels a lot more expensive that it is. I know I will be wearing this for many party seasons to come.

Links to what we are wearing can be found below, as always, but let’s first talk about why best friend are so important.

A big shout out to my best friends, you know who you are and this is why I love you!

Love: I love my best friends more than they know. I may not see them as much as I’d like to, or tell them how much they mean to me as much as I should; but they really are the everything, and I couldn’t live without them.

Truth: You can always rely on best friends to tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Sometimes this is hard on both of you, but it really is needed occasionally. Other acquaintances may be too worried about upsetting you to say it straight, but I know my BFF’s will always be like “Don’t buy those jeans they your bum looks like the size of a mountain’, ‘that guys shoes look like Kleenex boxes, you can’t go out with him’ or ‘I hate you, you bitch. Don’t move 200 miles away from me; but of course I’ll support you, no matter what’ and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Difference: One of the things that I find amusing about my group of besties is that we are all so different. Like, ridiculously so. I think this is one of the reasons that has kept us so close over the years, there have never been any arguments about anything as we all have completely different taste and don’t clash at all.

“We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere.”

Support: I have friends I will only get to see about twice a year, but when we see each other it is like we have never been apart. I might be hundreds of miles away from most of them but I know we will always there there for each other; whether it’s at the end of the phone, a train ride away or through bad times and good, best friends will support one another, always.

Forever: Great friends can last a life time; and I can’t wait to grow old knowing that they will always be by my side.

What do you love about your best friends?
