Wedding weekend at Longleat House

Back in June I attended the wedding of two lovely friends in Wiltshire, which is in South West England. The ceremony was in a beautiful old chapel in the countryside and afterwards the celebrations continued on at Longleat House – which is one of the most stunning venues I’ve visited! We had the best day and evening so thought I’d share some photos I took (on my iPhone) that weekend.

I absolutely love the dress I wore that day. I wish I could say it’s mine, but it’s not – I borrowed it of a friend of mine. It’s a silk one shoulder gown by Zimmermann, one of my favourite Australian designers. They make the most beautiful dresses, perfect for weddings or for bridesmaids.

Zimmermann don’t have any stores here in the UK (sad face) but you can shop online. Love some of these dresses, I want…

We all had the best day celebrating their special day into the wee hours of the night! Wishing them both all the happiness in the world and a HUGE thank you for such an amazing weekend.

Sparkly Crystal Wreath Choker statement necklace

One of my new favourite necklaces at the moment is this super sparkly crystal wreath choker necklace! Initially it might seem like quite a fancy piece that needs to be worn with an evening dress or ball gown, but I actually really like dressing it down with a t-shirt or jumper for a more casual look. Or just add it to any simple little dress, like this floral number for some added oomph to your look. It’s so elegant and fun for day or night.

Bailey Nelson – Wallace Tortoiseshell Sunglasses

Remember me talking about my visit to Bailey Nelson a few weeks ago to look for some new sunglasses? You can read that post here. Anyway, have to say I am loving the ones I picked, the Bailey Nelson Wallace Tortoiseshell sunglasses. They pretty much did not leave my face while in Turkey!

I also think it’s great that all of Bailey Nelson’s sunglasses come with polarised lenses. It really makes a huge difference for your eyes and reduces reflections and eliminates glare.

Not a bad view right? This was while sunbathing at the sun deck at the Kempinski Hotel in Bodrum which was a few days of ultimate luxury. So relaxing :) Do you like my new Wallace tortoiseshell sunglasses?

Silver Bar Necklace

I love a statement necklace but sometimes a delicate piece is just as gorgeous! I love my new silver bar necklace with a slight curve by Maison Miru. A necklace like this can really be worn with any outfit, for any occasion.

I love it when wearing a shirt like this or something with a lower neckline. A bar necklace looks great on its own but also looks fab when layered with other longer and/or shorter delicate necklaces. Do you like this kind of simple but elegant necklace?

Vogue Tee Giveaway

Last summer I was gutted to miss out on scoring myself this cool white Vogue Tee that came with the Vogue, Netherlands June issue. But this summer I was more on top of it! I read online that in June 2014 they’d be releasing another Vogue Tee again, so as soon as the issue was out I straight away contacted my (lovely) parents and kindly asked if they could pretty please pick up the issue for me. So for €6.99 I scored this lovely grey Vogue Tee and a good fashion read.
