Spring time, snow in April, wedding prep!

Hola lovely ladies,

First things first why is it snowing in April?!?! I'm very confused over this and my body is too. I seem to have developed a cough/cold over the last few days and I have my sister in laws wedding next weekend and I have to be well for that!

It took me aggeeesss to find an outfit to wear for the wedding. I wanted to go for the cute, vintage effortless look. Could I find the perfect dress in February/March - NO. Luckily though after trawling through countless websites and giving up on vintage I have found a very agreeable number from Mina UK at a bargain price of £30 -hoorah! It is on their website but I got it from a stockist in a town near me. I have actually got 3 to choose from and have put a picture up of 2 below but decided to go with my first choice in the end (we are women we are allowed to), the navy one.

Miss Selfridge - going to wear for a summer wedding

The third one is from Kurt Muller but is end of the line so I couldn't find a picture.

My next dilemma was what accessories to wear with it, the model is quite tall and as I'm only 5"2 the dress comes to my knees. I'm going for nude/pink colour peep toe shoes with statement earings from Accesorize and a "wow" handbag in pink. Navy shouldn't technically be a difficult colour to match but I haven't worn navy since my secondary school uniform so it was tricky. 

For my hair I'm going for this flower... and am going to attempt some form of an up-do. I'll get my other half to take a photo of the finished look and will upload. My make-up I want to keep very vintage and will go through my lippies to find the best one. 

So this weekend I got my hair trimmed and my nails done in a lovely pale pearly pink colour on Saturday. Whilst I was out I popped into Cancer research UK and bought myself a dressing table hand hold mirror which came in a set of 3 with a comb and brush for £6.50. It is silver and has a lovely design on. I'll take a photo of this too and upload. Rather annoyingly my camera takes it's photos too large and I'm yet to work out how to make them small enough to upload here :-)

Today I fell in love with the new Mulberry "Del Ray" range which is soon to be launched for their A/W range. The range is inspired by Lana Del Ray and I must say even I am thinking of saving up for the purple/brown one! An absolute splurge at £795, whilst saving for a wedding/house is going to be difficult. 

I wonder how much I need to blog about it to get a freebie....

Anyway. today I'm...
  • Thinking go away cold come back next week
  • Having a glass of white wine mid-week oops
  • Considering shaving and exfoliating and maybe starting to use gradual build up tan

That's it for now sweeties have a fab last working day before the Easter long weekend
