Since my last blog I’m sure you’ve all been wondering what I wore to the wedding, well maybe not, but I feel the need to share…

After much contemplation of how to utilise some of the beautiful clothes I already own, I went window shopping with a very stylish old friend of mine. Whilst browsing in Zara, hoping I might the perfect top to go with my Chloe skirt, she pulled out a fabulous bright red fitted dress…very Valentino and very modern. Not at all what I had imagined myself wearing (I’m not really a structured, fitted dress type of girl) but styled up by Jane (my friend) with some with black block-heel sling backs with a panel of on-trend clear plastic (making the shoes look a lot less heavy), a double purchase was made, the whole outfit costing £70…who knew you could a feel a million dollars for £70! I then scoured the world wide web for a piece of black net on a headband and dadaa I was ready to go.

Anyway, less about me, me, me and my outfit. The bride looked completely stunning and the lady guests all looked very glamorous with primary colours coming out on top…lots of blue, red and some yellow.

Roll on the next wedding and wedding outfit planning…maybe it’ll be mine, then I can truly justify the time spent on thinking what to wear!

Wedding season has kicked off….oh what to wear?!

Do you have a wedding invite this summer? I do (deliberate pun!) and after seeing the best dressed guests at Meghan and Harry’s wedding I have some idea what I hope to be wearing.

Here’s how to do it, from those that shone…

Carey Mulligan with husband Marcus Mumford

Lovely choice of Erdem dress, Carey’s retro vibe is maintained with the 1950’s inspired fabric of embroidered flowers on a sheer base. Bright and beautiful (just like Carey) and perfect for a summer wedding.

George and Amal Clooney

Could this couple look anymore chic! Absolutely love Amal in this sunny yellow Stella McCartney dress and matching hat and don’t get me started on George…swoon!

Mother of the bride, Doria Ragland

Mother of the bride, Doria looked elegant and stylish in this Oscar de la Renta dress and coat combo, the beauty is in the simplicity of this outfit and the fresh pistachio ice-cream colour. The small but perfectly fitted Stephen Jones hat tops off the outfit perfectly.

Serena Williams

Not many of us could look this striking in pink! Serena Williams looks amazing in this Versace dress.

So colour is definitely the way to go for a stand out wedding outfit but if you decide to go dark make it bright with a lovely smile like the Suits actress Sarah Rafferty in navy Lanvin with Philip Treacy hat.
