Wedding Dress Inspiration

In one month I’m having my first dress fitting – to say I’m excited would be a pretty big understatement. Since our wedding day will have been 23 months in the making by the time it comes around, it’s so good to start thinking more seriously about things – ordering flowers, picking suits, buying decorations – all this stuff seemed so far away back when we got engaged over 15 months ago. One thing I haven’t touched upon here so far is the dress; of course, I won’t be revealing to you guys ‘the one’ but I thought I’d pick out a few of the dresses that have inspired me along the way, just so you can see a little of my vision and what I might have chosen. I can’t wait to get into it again, this one made just for me, with all the other elements in place, it’ll make everything seem that much more real heading towards Christmas and the 6 month mark!

Style Saturday: Fall Colour Dresses

We’re not having much of Fall around these parts at the moment – the sun is continually making an appearance and it’s only really first thing in the morning that the temperatures are slightly dipped – so dressing for the time of year is getting to be a bit tricky. This weekend we’ve decided to embrace it’s quirkiness and straddle the Summer-Autumn line perfectly with some cooler dresses in suitable Autumnal shades. Layering is always going to be the key with pieces like this, so we’ve also got an extra layer handy, just in case, but we’re really enjoying the weather right now so we’re not over here complaining.

Pastel Coats

It may be autumn but spring colours are still very much present in the shops, and many of us are still enjoying spring-like temperatures so you may not be thinking about purchasing a coat just yet. I do, however, like to consider buying outerwear early in the season so that I have the biggest choice of styles possible. I’ve picked out a few of my favourite pastel coloured coats that could tempt you into thinking about what you might be wearing in a month or two.

Style Saturday: Smart Dresses

I always like to have a couple of dresses in my wardrobe that I can call on when an unexpected occasion might arise…an engagement party, christening party, birthday party. I tend to stick with styles and colours that can be worn year-round, layered as needed, so they can be as versatile as possible, left on their own in Summer, or paired with a jacket and tights during the Winter. I’ve recently been looking around for something now that we’re transitioning into Fall and I have a couple of things to attend, so I thought I’d let you in on my search, picking a few out that caught my eye. I find it so much fun to do this kind of shopping, ordering online and trying lots of things on at home before I finally make a decision, so I’m looking forward to getting started!

My 10 Fall Staples

Transitioning from one season to the next can be super tricky – a day that starts off as a decidedly cold and cloudy Autumn one can end with that last warmth of Summer sunshine, and knowing what to wear is never really on the cards. For that very reason, clothes shopping at this time of year is one of the most difficult and the only way I know I can pick out things I’ll wear during this in-between period is to go with a few staples that can be changed up, weather-dependent. I want things that transition well from warm to cooler, and things I can layer up and switch up with warmer pieces when I need to. Here are the 10 pieces I think would be a great start to your Autumn wardrobe.
