WHAT TO WEAR AT A WEDDING?!

I have been invited to two weddings this year, which both just happen to be during the summer. In fact they are in August and I have already decided that I would like to wear something pretty, summery and super-feminine!

I will be selecting an outfit that is true to my personal style. I tend to wear dresses more than two-piece suits. For this wedding, however, I am considering wearing trousers or a skirt. I think it’s important to wear an outfit that you feel comfortable in, as there’s nothing worse than feeling self-conscious, especially when other people will be making an effort to look and feel good, on the day.

Have fun with your outfit and experiment with what looks right to you. If I wear a plain coloured dress, then I’ll add pattern in with the accessories; i.e. shoes, bag and jacket. Another idea is to play around with textures. For example, if my outfit is cotton or linen, then I will accessorise with patent shoes and perhaps an embellished bag. You can also bring out colours in your outfit, by selecting one of the colours (if patterned) and then wear this colour in your accessories. There are many ways in which you can put outfits together, but, don’t forget to choose items that sit well together, and also that you know you look good in!

Below, I have put together some outfit suggestions, using both designer and high street fashion.

Hmmmmm….which is my favourite?

SPORTY SANDALS

 

I have had a fantastic time this May Day and bank holiday weekend, spending time with close family and friends. To add to this, the sun came out and I got to wear my new sports sandals, by Topshop. I can’t believe how extremely comfortable they are and I imagine that I’ll wear them to death this summer!

Here are a just a few of my favourite designer styles (if I had the money, I’d buy them all!). I love the embellishments, fringes, straps, patterns and styling. Furthermore, besides looking comfortable to wear,some also look very colourful, yet casual and the rest just gorgeous and glamorous!
