Birthday Wishlist

lily-doughball-birthday-wishlist

It’s my birthday on Monday! Hoorayyyy! Yep, in just a few short days I will be turning the ripe old age of 26, and will be hurtling my way toward my late twenties… *gulp*. In honour of getting a little bit older and potentially a bit wiser, I’ve compiled a few bits and pieces which I’ve been eyeing up over the last few months, which I’m more than likely going to treat myself to this weekend (it’s mainly clothes and Etsy finds, to be perfectly honest).

Here I’ve compiled some of my favourite bits and bobs for that special someone who, like me, is a big fan of ol’ Rosy Lee. Read More

Autumn Wedding Wishlist

autumn wedding guest wishlist - what to wear to an autumn wedding

Grenson ‘Rose’ Brogues in Silver // Alex Monroe Peacock Feather Earrings // Ted Baker Aretia Beaded Dress Black // ModCloth Diamond to Meet You Bag // Mac Lipstick in Russian Red

Ahh, weddings. I’m at that age now where everyone I know is getting married left, right and centre, which means I’ve got a lot of weddings to plan to attend, which is getting pretty stressful, I can tell ya! We’re popping off to one at the end of September for the evening, so I’m doing a little bit of outfit prep ready for some awesome dad-style moves on the dance floor.

First up, who says you can’t wear black to a wedding? It wasn’t just thrown, the rule book was pretty much LAUNCHED out of the window when I saw this Ted Baker beauty, which at £99 down from £400, is an absolute bargain! Plus black goes with pretty much everything, so this can be recycled at the next wedding to come along. Just planning ahead!

Unless you have feet of steel, absolutely no one can withstand a night of serious wedding dancing with high heels on. To add some pizazz to my outfit but still keeping my little toes comfy, it simply has to be these ultimate brogues from Grenson. The metallics trend is still going strong, so you can be sure that these will still be trendy and last for years to come. Again, just planning ahead.

Adding some sparkle to my outfit are these lush earrings from Alex Monroe, and this adorable beaded handbag from ModCloth, with an even more adorable name. I’ve been admiring Alex Monroe for what feels like forever, and it’s only a matter of time before I crack and splurge on a pair of his earrings. ModCloth can always be relied upon for accessories, of course, and this beaded beauty is just right for popping your Panadol in if the wine gets a bit too much at the end of the night.

Of course, no outfit would be complete without a slick of Mac lippy, and my current favourite shade is Russian Red, perfect for adding an autumnal feel to my wedding outfit.

Any tips on dressing up for an evening wedding do? Let me know!
