What we wore on our night out in London | Jaks & Embargos

I have to say that Embargos has to be my guilty pleasure when it comes to London nightclubs.

Yes it is quite cheesy and yes it is pretty over priced, but I always seem to have a great night when we are there.

I had organised a small catch up with some university friends in London (post Australia return), so that I could see some of my friends that I had not yet seen.

My lovely friend Ola, took me in for the evening in their gorgeous flat in Maida Vale and we spent the day lazily hanging out in Regents Park with some G & Ts and a football….. What could be better?

After a strenuous day in the Park we decided at around 6pm that we should start getting ready for the evening.

I will talk quickly about the outfits we chose and where they are from….

It was a beautifully hot day in London and therefore wanted to take advantage of the weather and wear short and summery outfits whilst we had the chance.

I wore a red patterned playsuit which you can see in the pictures below, the playsuit was from a boutique in Sydney and I can’t unfortunately link you to where I got it from…  I have however put a similar suggestion at the bottom of the post from ASOS marketplace which is also lovely!

I will also quickly talk about my favourite Red lipstick that I am wearing above.

It is an Yves Saint Laurent lipstick and I am wearing the Le Rouge colour which is £26 but you can really tell the quality with this lipstick and it will stay on all night.

Soon after we got ready we headed to Raouls restaurant which is located on Talbot Road in Maida Vale.  Great food and lovely staff but the service was a little slow, and I wouldn’t go back unless it was one of the only places free in the area.

Ola who is on the left in the picture below is wearing a White dress from Zara.  Have a look at the end of the post for similar outfit ideas.

I wore some super comfortable wedges which are from Office, they were about £40 a couple of years ago and literally the comfiest shoes EVER!!  The link to a very similar pair is at the bottom and would highly advise the invest.

Ola’s heels were from Dune and she said that they were also pretty comfy and they look great!


After getting ready we headed straight to Jak’s on King’s Road, which is located literally just underneath Embargos but it is a great bar.  The drinks are pretty pricey at around £10 for a spirit and mixer, but it is great fun for the occasional night out there.


As you can tell from the photo above we were having a pretty good time!

We headed up to Embaragos straight afterwards for a couple of drinks but didn’t stay out too late as we all had things to do on Sunday.

Definitely check out Jak’s and Embaragos if you are around in London.

Also let me know what you think of the outfits.
