If smell-o-vision existed, I’d insist you turn it on, as you’d be able to smell the gorgeous aromas of lavender just by looking at these images. As soon as I saw this Fearne Cotton for Very maxi dress, I knew instantly that I wanted to shoot in a field of purple, and I’m so glad that Hitchin Lavender Farm is so close to me as it was such a fun afternoon prancing around in this gorgeous dress.
So last year was all about our wedding, this year it seems we have a wedding in every season, which can I just say makes it extra difficult to plan wedding guest outfits, but I’m totally up for the challenge!!! I’ve already shared my winter/spring wedding look earlier this year, and here is my summer wedding guest style, I sense a theme I do love a pop of colour at a wedding.
Summer I think is the easiest season to find something for a wedding the high street is filled with occasional wear for the prom, racing and wedding season, but it is hard sometimes deciding on a look especially when you aren’t sure what sort of shindig you are attending. But one thing I can tell you is colour is never a bad thing at a wedding, unless it is a black and white theme, colour is cheerful, you will pop in pictures, and if you can’t go bright at a wedding when can you!!!
Yeah to the recent warm weather, it finally feels like summer, so of course I rushed over to spend the weekend by the sea in Aldeburgh, a pretty seaside town in Sussex. As the weather was so lovely and the setting so beautiful, I thought it would be a cool idea to do a summer lookbook editorial focusing on denim, you know me I love a bit of denim, as well as showcase a few current trends I’m loving, off-the-shoulder and fun lace tops, as well as present my favourite pieces from the Caravelle New York spring/summer 2015 collection.
There are three looks: denim shorts, a fun and flirty denim skirt, as well as my trusty light blue skinnies that I seem to always wear during the warmer months, teamed with a few new favourites.
The scariest thing about summer dressing has to be that moment when it is too warm to wear tights, jeans, or your favourite tailored trousers, and you actually have to show the world your legs and the effects months of winter has had on them, which in my case means super dry legs. For me, confidence comes from three areas, whether my hair is doing OK, is my outfit flattering, and the added pressure in the summer whether my legs look toned and fuzz-free, I used to be bothered about them being tanned but I’m really embracing my pasty ways and factor 50!
So when Braun invited me to a pampering day at the Rosewood London with yummy food, shopping, and a leg makeover by celebrity beautician and Braun ambassador, Nathalie Eleni on the itinerary as part of their Silk-Epil 9 campaign I jumped at the chance, any tips I can get on making my legs summer ready I’m totally there.
