Pretty In Pastels

pastel outfit collage This weather isn’t really anything to go by, but a way to warm me up is by putting a dream summer outfit together. If the weather isn’t great there’s no reason to not bring a bit of summer yourself with what you wear. So here I have arranged a pastel paradise :) My favourite item has to be the Whistles sandals. They look like they’d be really comfortable with the platforms, and they’re not too high which I’m sure you’ll agree is an added bonus. What’s your favourite item?

Wedding Special

It was my friend’s wedding on Saturday. A very old friend, for whom I could not be more happy…and her now – husband!! She looked beautiful of course…one of the best looking people I know, its not difficult! However, what also makes a wedding really exciting is looking forward to see how the rest of us turn out. Everyone looked stunning to say the least. Initially I was after this Floral Pencil dress from Zara. I don’t particularly like my legs, but my silhouette isn’t too bad, so this was the perfect shape. It had an amazing print in the style of Mary Katrantzou. There was a grey tone that I preferred but they sold out of both! There’s a red version out now called Racer Back Dress at £45.99, but the fitting came out slightly different. Not sure if it’s a fault or I put on weight after my holiday…most of the dress zips were ripped across different stores though. So maybe it’s both. (Sorry I have a moody beak mouth in the pic!)

What to wear to a wedding?

I did order some dresses from ASOS but none of them were any good. I was starting to worry that I wasn’t going to find anything…maaah! I really limited myself only looking for pencil dresses. Until I went shopping in Reading last weekend. I found some peplum dresses by Miss Selfridge in House of Fraser. They are perfect for my body shape, whoopie! There were about 5 different types, there are loads more online. I went for this blue one ‘Sporty Peplum Dress’ (£45.00) as it fit the best, even though I wanted coral. But I’m glad I did as there was a lot of coral about at the wedding! I bought these sandals for a wedding 2 years ago, they are H! by Henry Holland for Debenhams. The necklace is H&M (£9.99) and the clutch bag from Dorothy Perkins (£15.00). The collar necklace is a definite must with this type of dress as it could end up looking quite plain.

Next…my lovely sister and I. Doesn’t she look BEAUTIFUL! Her dress is…(drum roll)…Primark! This dress is made out of a lovely chiffon material and suits her hourglass shape…aaaand green eyes (that I have always been jealous of). Her blazer is Miss Selfridge called ‘Apricot Shawl Collar Blazer’ and shoes are Zara. They were actually bought for the Bride’s sister’s wedding in January as the bridesmaid’s shoes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are my very old, good friends, Hannah (right) and Beki (left); beautiful leggy bitches!! These sisters have the best legs known to man. Both looking swell don’t you think? Beki is wearing a dress from Topshop and Hannah’s is River Island. Don’t you love Beki’s church appropriate jewellery?! She also had a rosary bracelet to match; a present from my sister. BLESS.

This is Leanne (on the right obv) the photographer at the wedding. Also a close friend of Beki and Hannah’s. She is my current girl crush. Beautiful on the inside as well as the outside! She is a super cool photographer and has super cool hair to match! I <3

Anyone got any weddings coming up? What will you wear?
