Wedding woes, what do I wear?

Afternoon everyone, I hope wherever you are is a lot more appealing that what I can see outside of my window. Rain, rain, rain.

But, in a couple of weeks I’m heading to Brighton to a wedding, and I’ve never really been to a wedding before! That’s a lie, I’ve been to a wedding that I was also part of, but not as a guest. So understandably I’ve been a panicking pile of poop.

It’s my boyfriend’s brothers wedding, and although I’ve been with my boyfriend for some time now, I haven’t met a lot of his family. There’s so many reasons for me to panic right now!

I checked out Missguided’s “Missbrided” section, but it’s not very me, it almost seems too dressed up for a wedding, but what do I know!

I hit up ASOS to give me some ideas, and now I have 2!

So I don’t know the vibe of the wedding, as in, do I wear a nice chilled maxi and some sandals or do I go for a fitted dress? Well thanks to ASOS’s recent sale, I didn’t have to choose 😉

Formal wedding, girlfriend of the best man dress:

This beautiful dress from Closet is just my sort of dress, I love a kimono vibe and it’ll help my arms look thinner (WOO!)

It’s delicately wrapped around the waist, singeing in just the right places (hopefully) to make me look a lot more glamorous than I actually am. I adore this print too. It’s so summery and bright, and I’m normally a khaki/navy kinda girl so I’m really excited to try this, at a bargain of £30 too I might just keep it even if it doesn’t make the cut!

Super chill maxi-ng and relaxing (I know, I tried too hard):

dress2

This amazing belted maxi tea dress from Glamorous (in stock in petite) melted my heart, I am in love with the print, and I am desperate to capture a bohemian vibe for Brighton, not sure why, just am! I got this at an absolute bargain of £27.

What’s even better about this dress is that I don’t have to worry about wearing heels, because everyone knows a maxi life is lived in sandals.

Massive props to ASOS for helping a sista out with wedding woes, but I will point out I ordered these before they sent out 10% off sale items for their website being down!

Don’t worry though ASOS, love ya always xo

My Daniel Wellington beauty 

So I’ve been toying with the idea of a new watch for a while, i’m quite techy so my natural assumption was that the next piece of machinery to live on my wrist (other than my Fitbit) would be a smart watch.

Boy was I wrong…

This absolute beauty from Daniel Wellington first caught my eye in one of Megsays’ YouTube videos, I haven’t showcased it quite as well as she has, but the hands of the watch are a beautiful electric blue which made me fall in love with life all over again. Yes, it’s that serious.

This watch is a mix of the old classic vintage look with the gold framing and tan leather strap with a splash of modern style, and I couldn’t wait any longer to get it!

why is my arm so hairy?

I bagged this beauty for £90, yes £90!! Click here to get yours now!

The price tends to fluctuate, so get in there before it goes up again!

Live & die in Topshop

Topshop is GOD.

Well, it’s my god!

Since I was at school, I would save up all my pocket money in attempt to buy even just a pair of socks from Topshop, I longed for the day that I would earn enough money to buy perhaps a top, or a skirt, or maybe even boots?! All in one day. At present day I find it difficult to not wear at least one item from there, how times change!

Topshop has always been a fashion haven to me, it’s my go-to shop for any occasion and the fact that student discount works on sale items makes me want to burst into a million pieces of confetti.

Well boys (maybe?) and girls, I have bought my all time favourite dress.

I’m a bottom heavy athletic build, and as much as I would love to be super cute and petite it’s just not going to happen. This dress makes me feel super cute and petite, and sometimes us lanky girls need to feel as small as a field mouse. This dress really helped. This is also probably the shortest dress I own too, such a little floozy.

I also never approved of blondes wearing yellow, so thanks Topshop for breaking my rules as well as my bank account.

I forgive you x

I will try and take better photos next time…

If you love this dress as much as I do, you can find it here for an absolute bargain of £42 (£37.80 with student discount!)
