Hope you all are well..
Recently I attended my friend Polly’s wedding and honestly had the best day. The bride was gorge, she was like an old Hollywood babe in her stunning fishtail gown. The wedding was in The Crawfordsburn Inn, the most beautiful venue. It was so quaint and had beautiful gardens were we drank wine and nibbled on canopies while mingling in the sun.
My jumpsuit was from an online boutique called Hope and Ivy. I had discovered the brand when browsing through ASOS. The jumpsuit wasn’t on ASOS itself but I had gone on to the brands own site and discovered this little beauty in the sale. It wasn’t petite so I had to get the spaghetti straps altered and the trouser hem shortened, story of my life eh? But it wasn’t a big job and my dressmaker done it so well. The detail on it was fab. It had a subtle v neck, which featured on the front and back with a soft ruffle detail around the waist. This gave the illusion of a tiny waist, which I love because unfortunily I’m not blessed with Kim Kardashions’ tiny torso so I like things that draw me in around that area. Down each leg of the trouser, was a faux button design. The jumpsuit was quite boho, something a little different for me.
To accessories, I wanted to keep it simple, I bought nude sandals from Missguided and my bag was borrowed from my cousin, who has any little quirky bag or accessory you would ever need. I hunted the internet for a pastel coloured embroided bag because I didn’t want anything to harsh against the jumpsuit, but thankfully for Pat I was sorted and the clutch was perfect. The bag was from Accessorize but I think it could be from a few seasons ago. It added a touch of colour but kept to the boho theme with the pastel embroidery detail.
For my hair, I went to ‘Blondies’ in Hilltown to get a halo braid. Again I wanted a halo braid to add to the boho feel of the jumpsuit which I thought really suited it. Usually I go for a a curly blow dry but I wanted something a little bit different. When I am wearing an outfit I like the theme to run throughout the whole look. My make up was done by the fab Nicole Kinley. I am so picky about my make up and don’t usually get it done often because I just like doing my own. But Nicole was brilliant, she asked me what I wanted and done exactly that. She is such a gem and brilliant at make up. Could not recommend her enough. Instagram @nicole_kinley
My nails were done by my nail queen Oonagh Doyle. Again I’m as picky with my nails as I am with everything else, but she always gets it right. Oonagh is great at pushing me out of my comfort zone while still keeping it simple, just how I like it. Not only that, she is such a lovely person and has me in kinks of laughter everything I’m getting my gels on.
So there you have it! I hope you all enjoyed my wedding outfit post. Currently I am working on ‘A wedding guide for a wedding guests’ blog post. I know how hard it is to find that perfect outfit without living in fear that someone is going to arrive in the same outfit. I promise it’s on its way, but just like everything I want it to be perfect.
Speak to you all soon
