Biker Style

I have to say my Missguided biker jacket is probably one of my best buys to date and has been central in helping me deal with the awkward winter / spring transition we are all going through. Mustard isn't to everyone's taste but I love how it can brighten any outfit. If I am ever having a uninspiring day and throw on black jeans and a t-shirt this jacket helps turn the outfit into something a little more interesting. Love love LOVE this jacket. AND IT'S STILL IN STORE!

Bridesmaid Central

Finding out I was going to be a bridesmaid was such an amazing feeling. Mostly because it meant that I could contribute to the best day of my friends life but I have to admit one of the thoughts that instantly rushed through my mind was, of course, the bridesmaid dress. Thankfully my friend has amazing taste so I have no doubt that I will be wearing an amazing bridesmaid dress come her wedding day but you can’t help but start to browse the web for different styles and colours. I recently came across  www.aislestyle.co.uk who seem to have an amazing variety to suit all styles, from plus size bridesmaid dresses to short and long bridesmaid dresses they literally have everything. They also cater for other events like special occasion dresses as well as wedding party dresses for guests. So I have decided to share with you a few styles that I have personally fallen in love with since starting my bridesmaid journey.

Firstly it is clear today that people are starting to deviate away from the traditional bridesmaid dresses and venturing towards more exciting styles. One trend I am loving at the moment is having different dresses for each bridesmaid whether it be a different style of dress or a slightly different tone in colour I love this idea as it shows each bridesmaid as completely unique but still unifies them as the wedding party.









Lace has always been at the top of the ‘wedding day criteria’ when it comes to dresses, hats, table settings, even shoes! It is simply timeless and adding a bit of lace can transform a dress from looking dull to looking absolutely fabulous. Lace bridesmaid dresses therefore are my next ‘go to’ style. Since the Royal Wedding I have often seen both wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses with high neck lace which always looks so delicate and simply beautiful.







My Final ‘ go to style’ is the short bridesmaid dress, ideal for summer weddings or even weddings abroad. Short bridesmaid dresses traditionally used to look extremely boring or primarily kept for flower girls. However today there seems to be such a wide variety of short bridesmaid dresses that it can cater to everyone’s taste!


TIP: having the same dresses but different shoes helps to maintain an aspect of uniqueness.







Hopefully this post has been helpful in starting to think about the many MANY options when it comes to the world of bridesmaid dresses. I hope you enjoy the rest of your bridesmaid journey!

Ruffle Shirt

Zara sales are usually too hectic for my liking but during a moment of determination I managed to find this amazing ruffled shirt half price! Clearly it was meant to be. I've paired it with my zip leather skirt which I bought ages ago but have linked similar ones below along with my camel coat and head over heels booties.

Peg Trousers

Peg trousers are my new obsession. I'm trying my hardest to wear things other than jeans at the moment so when I found these beauties in Topshop I couldn't resist. They fit to perfection, super comfy and the cutest belt detail. They look amazing with pointed heels but for February I opted for a much warmer boot. - All / similar items linked below

Statement Sleeves

Another amazing find from Missguided. Embroidery is everywhere at the moment and the incredible detail on this dress really stood out to me. I didn't feel a need to wear any jewellery as there is already so much detail. I love that it’s high neck and adore the flared sleeves -  I forgot to take a photo of the back but it is also completely open.

Birthday Wishlist

I turned 26 this week and although I feel incredibly old *begins to cry*.
I've been dreaming up a birthday wish list to make me feel better.

 
If you havent already noticed, embroidery is everywhere at the moment. This statement shirt is from H&M and I like it because it is one of those items that 'make' an outfit; so you can pair it with plain jeans and still look chic plus the flared sleeves are a nice finish.


Who doesn't love watches? The Daniel Wellington collection are lovely day watches as they are so simple and elegant. Sometimes less is more after all.


Well you can't have a birthday wish list without a birthday dress! Missguided have got the most amazing embellished dresses at the moment in lots of different styles and colours to meet everyone's taste. Here is just one that caught my eye.




Thanks to the likes of Sarah Ashcroft, Quay sunglasses seem to be a constant feature in everyone's accessory drawer at the moment. They are big, flamboyant and colourful, - everything a good pair of sunnys should be. Here are my favourite.



I'm obsessed with wide leg trousers at the moment and plan to continue my obsession throughout the summer. I love anything pink so these ASOS beauties (here) are right up my street.



XOXO
