For my birthday last month I went for lunch with my best friend at Newman Street Tavern (I hadn't been before, but would recommend it - good British food and rustic country pub-style interiors) and spent the evening listening to jazz at one of my favourite places in London, Ronnie Scott's. We drank Champagne and ate dinner whilst American saxophonist James Carter played with his super-energetic James Carter Organ Trio band, who were awesome.
I wore a black satin Topshop dress with a sixties-style funnel neck cut, my trusty white wedges from ALDO and a bright blue pebble leather bag I snapped up at the Kate Spade sample sale. We stayed until after the second band came on, left around 1am and hailed a taxi to go home and pack as I had to get up at 4am the following morning to fly to Tenerife; more on that later.
