Fuck You Wedding Season!

4 June 2016

From the title of this blog post you would think that I hate weddings... No. 
I love weddings! I can not wait for the day to start planning mine (hint hint). 
What I do hate is shopping for the perfect wedding outfit.... urgh fucking torture.

My style has developed over the years.
I have gone from the tomboy phase in my late teens, to girly/tomboy in my early 20s to girly with a dash of edgy in my mid 20s to now a defined edgy, chic, on trend yet comfortable style - oh and loads of BLACK.
That felt like a mouthful but it's hard to describe my style in 1-2 words. FACT

So shopping for wedding attire is torture - especially for me. 
Firstly you have to consider what you can NOT wear. White, Black, Trainers, Flats... the list can go on. 
Then you have to consider your budget. And my in case my non-existent budget due to my family holiday to Vietnam this summer. Yayness!
Lastly you have to consider what the heck your partner is wearing.
There are too many things restricting my awesomeness and none that can contribute to it!

To be clear - I have been invited to three weddings this year. That means three completely different outfits...

Wedding no. 1
I managed to find this outfit with the help of my trusty friends Asos and Public Desire.
As I have put few pounds here and there, I wanted to wear something that I would feel comfortable in yet stylish and sexy so I originally opted for this pant suit (Bottoms & Top). It ticks all the boxes.
Hides belly, covers arms, stylish yet affordable... you get the drill.

However as the Mr. is one of the groomsmen he made it a point to let me know that standing next to him in a pant suit is not hot. I agreed. So my pant suit idea was thrown out of the window... cheers Mani.

Through endless saved lists and trailing through Asos, Missguided, Boohoo and all the affordable on trend, online websites I settled on this number. 
A one shoulder pleated mini dress in mint.
It's super girly but really comfortable so that's a great compromise.


Dress - Asos | Shoes - Public Desire - ps. I would advise getting sizing up when you order from PD

Wedding No 2 & 3 outfit posts will be coming shortly. I just need to find them first!

But here are some really cool outfit choices.

  2. I absolutely love this dress on you. And the color is perfect.

    Luckily I've been able to get out of every wedding I was invited to attend by my boyfriend. -_- Thank God for nonrefundable flight tickets. LOL! I won't be able to use that excuse much longer but at least I'll have an excuse to shop. (:

  3. I totally feel you girl, my style really doesn't lend itself to formalwear least of all weddings so I've definitely struggled in the past! I love what you chose though, that mint green is so gorgeous on you! xx
