With my own wedding in 2 months and invites to two others within that time, I think it's safe to say that we are in Wedding season!  I love weddings, I really enjoy getting dressed up, the dancing, and obviously seeing the happy couple tie the knot! I do however always have a bit of a panic when it comes to what I am going to wear. There are so many things you have to consider - Not wearing  a cream or white dress, Avoiding the wedding party colour scheme. Also with more and more brides opting for highstreet bridesmaid dresses you can even run the risk of turning up looking like one of the bridesmaids these days!

Above is something I put together thinking about a wedding reception I am attending at the end of the month.   I love coral and nude/cream combinations. I think it looks so fresh! As you can see I am living in hope that the sun will be shining and I wont have to carry a brolly around with me! I've gone with what I would consider a simple but classic outfit, adding a little something extra around the waist. The metallic belt trend isn't something I have dabbled in too much, I'm not normally one for shiny things - unless it's some kind of sparkly nail varnish! However this belt just caught my attention. I love the gold, which I think works well with the dress and the arrow detailing is a bit different. It gives the outfit a focal point, and being that with most of us our waist is our smallest part we want the attention drawn to the area where we are the most slimmest!

We all know that I am partial to a bit of Nars, I'm yet to try any of their nail polishes though. When I saw this duo on ASOS I knew they would be the perfect shades to go with this look. You kinda get the best of both worlds. The coral shade is perfect for spring and summer. The darker shade will be perfect for the transition into Autumn & Winter later on in the year.

Now I just have to wait till payday so I can treat myself to a couple of bits. Thankfully it's before the date of the reception I'm going to so I'll probably be able to get something in time!

Are you attending any weddings this summer? Do you go through the dilemma of what to wear like me?

Much Love,
