What I wore: Yet another wedding


I have reached that where people are getting married all around me. I find it hard to understand because really I'm convinced that I'm still 16 years old without a care in the world and that marriage and 'settling down' is a million miles away... it really isn't.

Every time a new invite slips through the post, I have a moment of hysteria where no matter how many clothes I have in my wardrobe, I never have anything to wear and end up last minute panic buying. We've all been there.

This time though I didn't want to go through another expense when the rational part of my brain fought itself through the panic and mae me remember all the dresses I have! 

I bought this dress as my 'dancing dress' for my cousin's wedding in August for when the bridesmaid's dress would inevitably become too hot or I started tripping over the hem...



I know it's a taboo to wear white to a wedding that isn't your own but as the pattern is so bold it feels more like a blue dress to me. 

Look! It gives me hips! 
As the dress was so pattern heavy I kept all my accessories simple, using my Ted Baker clutch and nude shoes (which have become my wardrobe staples) and a silver necklace which is so tiny you can't even see it.

Nothing to OTT for me this time!

What did you wear to the last wedding you went to?

  2. I agree that the blue is so vivid that you don't really notice that it's on a white background. And it looks AWESOME on you! x
