When one of my favourite brands PrettyLittleThing
contacted me about working on a post with my blogger bae Victoria Hearn to celebrate National Friendship Day, I jumped at the chance. PLT is a brand both Victoria and I have shopped with for years so we couldn’t wait to style up some of our fave pieces whilst catching up at the same time. The idea behind the post is to celebrate friendship, let you guys know a bit more about me and Victoria and also show you how you and your bestie can slay together wearing PrettyLittleThing for any occasion. I hope you enjoy!
Victoria and I have only been friends since September of last year which is crazy to think about as it feels like we’ve known each other for years. If you follow us on social media, I’m sure you see photos of us together all the time and snapchats of us being silly – I mean, a friend isn’t a true friend if you can’t be weird with each other, right? We first met when we were both shortlisted for a Cosmo Blog Award and Victoria DM’d me on Instagram to see if I fancied meeting up before and going together. We’d both followed each other for ages so as soon as I saw her message, I said yes straight away. I hate attending events alone so I was so thankful to her for reaching out.
We met before the event and the rest is history. We’ve been pretty much inseparable ever since – not a day goes by that we don’t chat on whats app and we’ve already been away on two holidays together with plans for a third very soon. You know when you meet someone who you instantly click with and you feel like you can be 100% yourself around? That’s what happened with Victoria and I. If you’re a blogger yourself and have friends in the industry, you’ll know that it’s such a breath of fresh air to be able to do ‘blogger stuff’ with each other and not feel judged in the slightest. For instance, being a top poser for all those insta shots and not being judged or being able to sit together whilst on our phones updating social media and not feel awkward or like we’re being rude. When you have the same job, becoming friends is ten times easier as you instantly have a common ground and so much to discuss.
In terms of our style – I’d say Victoria and I are very similar and like a lot of the same things. There’s been so many times we’ve both worn something and the other one has been like ‘okay, I need this’. I think it’s really nice to have a friend with a similar sense of style – it means you can always share outfits and of course, been coordinated for all those selfies! As you can see from these photos, when picking our sassy PLT looks, we both went for pieces that compliment each other perfectly. We decided to style up a day time look, evening look and even some night wear to show you that no matter what the occasion, PrettyLittleThing have got you covered!
For the evening look, we just couldn’t resist PrettyLittleThing’s new Premium dress range – I mean, how beautiful are these dresses? They’re slightly pricier than PLT’s standard range but in my opinion, so worth the extra money. If you have a special occasion coming up and you want to wear something that will make you stand out and look a million dollars, these are 100% the dresses for you. I have my engagement party at the end of this month and I’m highly considering the dress I’m wearing as my outfit. It’s just so beautiful – I love all the detailing. You can get Victoria’s dress here and mine here. My rose gold heels are also available here – I love these as they go with so many different outfits.
Our final look is nightwear and we decided on these CUTE AF (literally) pyjamas
! We both loved them as soon as we clocked them on the PrettyLittleThing website and I think these are so perfect if you and your girls are planning a girls night in and want to wear something cute for chilling and sleeping in! Who doesn’t love wearing matching outfits with their friends?!
I hope you guys liked this post and all of our PLT picks – we had so much fun shooting it! We’ve also done a Q&A over on the PrettyLittleThing blog so make sure you go and have a read to find out more about us – you can click here
