A little bit of whimsy...

Thursday, August 30, 2012

My week has been full of appointments and plans in the count down to my cousin Heidi's wedding this Saturday in which Im bridesmaid. We had the rehearsal tonight and it was so lovely to see them look at each other and practice their vows.. so nervous, excited and full of emotion..
Anyways listen to me getting all soppy!
whimsy 
I wore this full skirted dress last week with a back combed beehive/bun... for me this look is a bit.. I dunno what the word is. Fancy. I think of myself and my style as a bit haphazard, my hair usually does its own thing and I let it. This hair teamed with this dress and my cat eye shape glasses make it slightly more polished than my normal look.

Cardigan: mado, dress: oasis, bag c/o boohoo, open toe shoes: melissa, glasses c/o proopticals, necklace c/o eclectic eccentricity
This faded teal blue shoulder bag is my new fav at the minute as it holds all my essentials and a whole lot more. Plus its such a pretty shade to take me into the autumn months.
