Phase Eight Wedding Guest Outfit

Wedding season is fast approaching and I for one am thrilled. I'll be going to 3 weddings this year and I can't wait to be a part of 3 couples special days. Obviously the best thing about weddings is the utter joy and happiness that surrounds you, but the second best thing has to be the dresses! The moment when you see the bride in her dress is breathtaking!

Obviously you can never upstage the bride and no guest's dress will ever compare to the bride (well at least it shouldn't) but it's still important for you to look your best!

Phase Eight are running a competition for you to pick your guest outfit, and with so much choice this is no easy task!
My outfit is the below:

The Bouquet Print Dress £120.00 screams Spring/Summer wedding with it's soft pinks and blues in a gorgeous flower print. The neck line is perfect for showing off some flesh but keeping yourself modest. Truly is a beautiful dress!

No wedding outfit is complete without a beautiful fascinator, and this Lauren Fascinator (£59.00)is the perfect compliment to the stunning bouquet print dress. The colours compliment each other perfectly!

The shoes Sophie Bow Slingback Shoes £99.00 are the perfect finising touch! They compliment the dress perfectly, bringing out the soft summery colours and matching the fascinator.

I was toying with the idea of whether to add jewellery or not, however I think the dress is so classic that any jewellery may take attention away from it, plus this season I think less is more!
So there you have it, the must to die for wedding guest outfit and all from Phase Eight.
I hope I am lucky enough to be chosen as the winner, as I would love to wear this outfit for my next wedding!

New Year Style

Thought I'd do a visual post about the trends and looks I'll be loving this year!

Firstly, I love colour blocking, nothing makes an outfit stand out than some colour pop!

Kate Moss works two of my fave looks in one, monochrome and sharp tailoring!

Acid wash denim will be my must have this summer, throw on over a dress in the summer or go for double denim by teaming with a pair of skinnies!

What will you be wearing this year? x

Capture the Colour!


This picture was taken in LA when I went with friends after finishing University. It was hard finding a picture that stood out and was different as although I had a lot of pictures that were of blue skies and blue sea it was hard to pick a favourite. I opted for the photo cos it was different and I love the slogan and it reminds me of relaxing on the beautiful beaches which really were spotless!


This picture was taken in Barcelona, I love the quirky little cactus!! The backdrop is the incredible views of Barcelona and we were lucky it was such a beautiful day. The cactus really did stand out like a sore thumb amongst the other shrubs and plants, ain't he cute!


This is probably my favourite picture amongst the ones I have chosen. This was taken again in America, this time in a state called Fresno and we happen to be there on one the most important days of their American Football League, we decided to join in with the upbeat team spirits and don some Fresno Dogs tshirts and get ourseleves to the game! We ended up coming across a huge university field party and got involved with Beer pong and red cups - basically everything you would associate with American parities! We made some great friends and learnt some drinking games to bring back to the UK with us!

The above picture was taken a couple of months ago in Pisa. It's over the Leaning Tower and a cloudy sky, I love this picture because i feel it is so simplistic yet pretty! The leaning tower was a great experience, although I am sickly scared of heights I plucked up the courage and went to the top, it was the weirdest feeling ever climbing up as it was so lobsided you felt as though you were slightly tipsy!


To me nothing somethings up the colour yellow and traveling quite like the statement Yellow Taxi's of New York. I remember when we first stepped out into Times Square, the feeling of being in a city so full of colour and life was amazing, especially seen as we have all grown up watching films set in NYC. the above picture shows everything that New York is about, not just yellow taxi's but people, busyiness and colour :)

Team GB!

I have been feeling very patriotic these past few weeks and I am loving the Olympics Fever which has swept the nation! I was lucky enough to be in London last week for the Beach Volley Ball and loved it! The 2012 Olympics really have inspired a generation and brought the country together!

I have been sporting red, blue and white colours this week (by accident at first but I'm going to try and continue the trend!) and came across this dress in Junk Shop Manchester, it really is the best way to sure your support!

Super Shades

So the sun has been quite the tease recently, it's the middle of summer and she is in hiding but letting her rays loose every now and again, giving us the slightest hope of a normal summer but then she takes it all away and the heavens open!

However I am ever the optimist and like to think that come August we will be basking in the hot summer heat, eating ice lollies and wearing our cute summer dresses that have been neglected for many months!

But as well as dresses there is one other summer staple which I can't wait to have back in my life... sunglasses!

Having a look at smartbuyglasses and there are so many I like!

I'm a big fan of:

Persol PO0714 Polarized 24/57

These bad boys are reduced from £233 to only £168! 

My other favourites are these gorge aviator Ray Bans:

Reduced from £133 to only £85, very cheap for a pair of Ray Bans!

They are both perfect and very versatile so would go with any outfit! Which do you prefer?

Check out for all you sunglasses needs!

This blog post was inspired by a competition running on Caroline's blog, Ergy Erg , check it out and see how you could win!
