Here are some pics of my outfit from Sunday, I went to the Northern Quarter Takeover in Manchester. It was one big street party for everyone to join and all the local bars and restaurant's had BBQ's, Bands and DJ's all outside and the atmosphere was fab. it was like a little mini festival in the middle of the city! 

I was really torn with what to wear as the weather has been so all over the place lately, but it was such a gorgeous day on Sunday that I decided to get my legs out for may be the last time this summer!
As you have already heard me mention, leather is going to be a big deal this season so I road tested my new jacket (which I love) and I teamed it with my denim dress from Forever 21. I really liked the girly feminine dress against the more edgy jacket. Sometimes it is fun to clash styles together don't you think? And the dress is a great shape as it comes in just under the bust to give definition without being to restrictive, which was just as well with all the Pimms and Red Stripe we were drinking! 

Here are a few photo's of the day itself.

              A delicious Almost Famous Burger!!
Getting into the Party!

It really was a fantastic event, the Northern Quarter of Manchester is the Soho or Greenwich Village of the city. It is the  part of town that have a wonderful selection of independent bars and restaurants and is the go to place for new cocktails and food!
Therefore there is always a really eclectic mix of people, music and fashion. 
It was packed out on Sunday and we had a great time, if you are not from Manchester then I would definitely recommend a visit to this part of town!
