Hi there! Thanks for stopping by to read 🙂 Things have been a little busy lately and I haven’t had much of a chance to update things over here but I have spent a LOT of time in the shops so thought I’d share some finds with you over the coming weeks. First up my dress edit – simply because this seems to be the focus of lots of enquiries recently!
I am not affiliated with any brand and all my selections are based purely on what I like! Every single lady I shop with is different and so one dress definitely doesn’t fit all but hopefully this can be a good starting point to get you inspired.
When dressing for a wedding I personally like to go with a more relaxed vibe rather than too formal. I’d shy away from fascinators in favour of a hair slide or hairband and look for relaxed fabrics that feel comfortable but look elegant yet effortless. Of course, there are many other options to rock at a wedding such as a co-ord, a fab trouser suit or a beautiful skirt and top but this is purely an edit of the dresses I’m loving right now.
A great affordable option from Topshop at £39. Florals are so pretty at a wedding. I love the colours in this although the same shape is also available in a number of different patterns. The slits prevent it from being too ‘twee’ and there are countless options of shoes you could wear with this. It looks very cute with a little basket back but you could go bold on the bag and pull out one of the colours in the dress.
I love the vibrancy of the print on this Monsoon dress. It isn’t somewhere that I often shop but I came across this while researching for someone recently. It would work well for a wedding with a strappy heel and then again on holiday with a pair of leather flip flops.
I love the Boho feel of this dress, it is so floaty and cool while being quite statement in an understated way if that makes sense! Add silver strappy heels and a little rafia bag and you are good to go. Whether you love this or not, check out Ghost as your go to for wedding guest dresses as they are always gorgeous!
To be honest I got a bit bored of Self Portrait dresses because for so long the cut out lace dresses were the go to wedding guest dress and were copied everywhere! But I have been loving Self Portrait again recently (amazing edit in Harrods) and feel like there’s lots I’d like to wear. Some of their dresses are currently on sale at Matches but be quick as the one above is selling fast with £100 off! Love it though and feel like it’ll be a go to for lots of weddings to come.
I couldn’t ever do a wedding dress edit without including a Rixo number in there! I love the bold prints and beautiful fabrics but for me it’s the fit that keeps me going back and buying more. This fits amazingly and I’ve had so many compliments about it. I know I will wear this for years to come.
Different from the rest as this one has sleeves but I love it. It’s so nice to wear colour to a wedding and this dress really caught my eye as it reminded me of a dress by Tibi that I loved last season. This would be beautiful on a warm skin tone, and I’d wear very simple jewellery and leave the rest to to the dress. When considering shoes, again I would go with something barely there in nude or a pale metallic perhaps. Just as in the image above! Other Stories are brilliant for affordable dress options, and if this colour isn’t for you they have this shape in a number of different shades so do check them out.
Kitri again is a great go to brand for dresses. I love this dress as a potential wedding guest dress as I feel it’s the kind of thing you can really dress up with the right shoes (much more elegant and strappy than above image) and a statement earring. The sleeves gift it a pretty detail and I love that it looks elegant but relaxed.
There are so many lovely Reformation dresses, but I particularly love this one! Stocked on Net-a-Porter you can browse the range and order from there. They are quite simple in their design but look expensive due to the perfect detailing. Lots of mini options too but I am selecting midi as that is what I am drawn to for a wedding. These dresses are true to size but if you are between sizes I would probably size up. This particular dress will take you from wedding to a BBQ, then to brunch and back again.
I could honestly go on for hours with this! So many brilliant dresses that can be reworn after the wedding. I’ll leave you with another Kitri dress simply because I think this screams fun. I’d love to wear this to hit the dance floor at a wedding but i think you could also make it work with trainers and a denim jacket for the spring/summer months. Plus it is half price and who doesn’t love a bargain!
Definitely not with the boots but you get the idea! Next to no jewellery and a red lip and I’d be skipping off happy as anything.
Hoping to be back very soon with lots more to share.
