Getting dressed up has to be one of my favourite times for fashion, and especially when it’s a really special occasion. There’s nothing like being able to buy a few new gorgeous pieces, in my case accessories and a gorgeous new coat; to wear for that one event you’ve been looking forward to for the whole year. So, as I have a spring wedding to go to, in just under 3 weeks time, for one of my best friends Sasha; I thought I would share some of the lovely new items I’ve purchased, to complete my outfit for the day.

The Coat- Although we all like to dream of those gorgeous hot weddings, in reality I really needed a coat to wear for the day. It’s not always very glamourous to wear a coat, especially not when you’re in all your finery, so I was determined to find a lovely and fashionable coat to complete my outfit.

After at lot of searching and trying on lot’s of different styles and shapes, this lovely blush coloured mac was the chosen one. I love how it’s a really feminine colour, that ties in perfectly with my other accessories and the colours in my dress, as well as it being a classic trench style, which is bang on trend. It’s not too thick for spring, will complement my outfit and make sure I always look fabulous, even when I’m out in the freezing cold, watching the pictures being taken.

The Clutch- Handbag’s are a true love in my life, and my second favourite thing when it comes to dressing and creating an outfit. I honestly think it’s so important to have a good bag; they pull a whole outfit together, make you look chic and feminine and also give you a place to put your phone and necessities or the day. So, it was really important for me to get a bag that was not only beautiful, but that’s also big enough to fit in all the things I need for the wedding; money, phone, lipstick and even a few snacks.

This beautiful clutch from Coast was the one as soon as I spotted it. I love how it has a mix between the faux leather and the faux suede, and that there is also a large bow tied across the front of it. It’s so feminine, but not too fussy and very chic, my style in a nutshell. There’s also a lovely addition of the rose gold clasp, that means this will be my metal of choice for the day; as well as it being super roomy and perfect for all my necessities.

The Shoes– I’m a real lover of high heels. They really do make a women look so much better, as they give you a real height, dominance and also make your legs look amazing. So, finding a lovely pair of shoes that not only look gorgeous, but that would also be comfortable and I would be able to wear again, was super important. Ultimately, I needed a killer pair of high heels, that would be the perfect companion to my outfit for the day, but also a great addition to my wardrobe.

So, these two toned half leather and half suede, high heels were the perfect choice. Not only do they actually tie in with my bag really perfectly, as they both have the two fabric thing going on, they will also go with some many different pieces I have in my wardrobe. They’re so classic and chic, completely my style again, and also have a really modern and feminine edge. I’m not usually a big fan of pointy shoes, however these have changed my mind as I love how they elongate my legs and look so classy. They’re a bit of a must buy if you ask me, as they were a real bargain.

The Fascinator- What is a wedding outfit without a fascinator, and this white one from Claire’s is the perfect choice. It really was the saving grace after hours spent looking for the exact fascinator I wanted, that was beautiful and also an affordable price. Honestly you would never believe how much a bit of organza on a head band could cost! This one is the perfect balance, as it was a really affordable price of only £16, but also looks lovely on and matches exactly with my white satin dress. It adds an extra something to my outfit, and also doesn’t break my bank every time I look at it.
