Our wedding day will be a little country chic, a little homespun and have a little bit of a modern twist thrown in too! how, you ask? Well, let me set the scene. The venue is a lovely converted barn. So we’re playing on the barn with bunting (when Super Stylish Sis makes it!) and strings of lights (when we get round to getting them!). in addition, I have decided to save the pennies and make the place setting name tags.
It’s festival season and British lifestyle brand, Joules, have created a festival inspired video to get you in the mood for outdoor festival fun this summer:
Joules has a wide collection of products for packing for a festival this summer, whether you’re staying in the UK and off to Glastonbury or heading abroad to a festival in warmer clims, like Benicàssim, there’s something for every one. I’ve out together my wish list of festival fashion:
Choose a festival-ready floral dress or striped tunic for a simple and easy laid back look. A dress or tunic is the easiest option for all weathers. In the sun, wear it alone. If it’s chilly or wet, simply add leggings and a cardigan.
You’ll want your hands free but your valuables safe, so make sure to choose a cross body bag, like a leather satchel.
After a day walking around a festival site, take a seat – make sure to remember to pack one. Bonus points for a cute floral folding seat! And make sure you remember candles, lanterns and torches for night times at camp!
If you’ve missed out on tickets to a festival this summer, no need to worry, Joules have written an article on hosting your own festival in the comfort of your own garden!
Are you off to a festival this summer? What will you pack?
Fat Face’s tag line is “life outside the 9-5” and so this week we’re featuring outfits from their spring/summer collection for every eventuality outside of the office! We’ve taken a few key pieces from the summer collection and want to show you how to style them for three different leisure activities: a weekend city break, a day at the seaside and festival wear.
Zalando, the online fashion store, turns 3 this month and to help them to celebrate they’ve asked a few fashion bloggers to tell them about how their style has evolved since the age of 3. As I turn 30 next month, it seems like the perfect opportunity to reflect on the last three decades and how my style has evolved.
Once the wedding planner has been bought, wedding plans can begin in earnest!! Out shopping in Marks & Spencer this week I spied this kitsch style planner which I thought would be perfect. So I snapped it up. With this in mind, I thought it was probably time for another wedding inspiration post. This time, hair. Mainly because I was at my hairdressers for a cut last week and got chatting about styles.
The Breton tee has a long and illustrious history, first as the official uniform of the French navy in 1858 and later, adopted as a fashion statement by Coco Chanel in the 1930s. Since then, women the world over have donned striped t-shirts in the hope of emulating a little of the late iconic French designer’s “je ne sais quoi”!
