WhatLauraWore: Wedding Planning and Update

Evening All
I've had a really busy and exciting couple of weeks, despite being poorly.  I went to see Britney Spears in concert in Newcastle last Thursday and she retweeted and replied to my tweet afterwards and she is now following me. OH EM EFFING GEE.  My life is actually complete.  Like a true Britney fan, I then went to see her in Manchester on Sunday night as well, with my friend Vicky.  If anyone is planning a trip to Manchester or going to the MEN Arena then I would really recommend staying at the new Travelodge that's just opened there.  Its called the Manchester Central Arena Travelodge and its literally 2 minutes walk from the arena and 5 minutes from Harvey Nichols.  FANASTIC location, plus its mega cheap.  We had planned on booking the Lowry as I have stayed there in the past when visiting the city but in all honesty we got a room at about a fifth of the price and because of the great location, we saved a fortune on taxis.  We went shopping the day after the concert and it was so nice to treat myself.  Got some beautiful clothes in my favourite shop Yours Clothing and got some gorgeous accessories in River Island as well as some other bits and pieces.  If you get the opportunity to go shopping in Manchester then I would, the Arndale Centre is fab.

In other news, Michael and I have been doing some more wedding planning.  We went to a good friends wedding at the end of last month and it really inspired us to crack on with the planning.  The date we've booked is two years away but I'm sure it will fly by and we need to start booking things now so that we get the companies we want at the price we want!  In today's outfit post, I thought I would show you the outfit I wore when we went to a wedding fayre recently.  It was a really successful outing as we found both our wedding photographer and potential cake maker there- result!

Grey Fair Isle Dress Evans Evans
Black ankle length leggings from Evans
Grey stud boots from Primark
Studded Bag from Ebay
Black Mac from Evans
Bracelets from a selection at Nomination, Links of London, Pandora, Malatan and Primark
Earrings from Primark
Pink diamante beanie hat from River Island

I love this jumper dress, its so warm and the design is lovely.  Not the best fit on me and I'm not a lover of the round neck but it is so comfortable.  Perfect for those winter days when you need an extra bit of warmth but don't want to wear long sleeves.  Evans have some great knitwear and coats in stock this winter, I'm really really impressed.  The bag I am carrying is the bloggers infamous studded FOCCO.  I'm going to be doing another post about this bag this week so hold you horses :)
Its not even 8pm and I'm actually contemplating going to bed early for once. I'm exhausted and have been poorly for two weeks now.  It all started when I got my flu jab, ironic I know.  I had it on the 21st and the next day I woke up with ear ache and I've been poorly ever since.  Eventually went to the walk in doctors in Manchester on Monday and was told that I have a viral infection... but that they couldn't give me anything to treat it.  Awesome... my own doctors tomorrow it is then!

Also: Ive entered this plus size blogging competition.  I was a little late getting involved so every vote really counts now... Please vote for me here: and tweet about it if you can xxxx
Anyway, that's enough from me this evening.  Hope you're all well and not suffering from cold symptoms like me!

What winter outfits have you been wearing recently? Are you planning any big events like me?  Have any of you been poorly after having the flu jab?
