True to form I left my packing for a family wedding in Malta to the last minute, I'm a 'I hate packing.com' kinda gal. However I had a vague idea there was something lurking in my wardrobe for the wedding outfit. My mate had been round at the start of the year just before I moved to do a wardrobe edit and announced "that would be great for a Summer wedding". Luckily for me when I asked her she remembered it was my purple skirt (thanks T - if I knew how to insert a kiss emoji here from my Mac I would!). It was a very old skirt from Primark of all places, yes, Primark! Despite my husband hating it I really really loved it still so it was coming with me. I teamed it with a pale cream top from French Connection that was actually given to me by T so I'm dedicated my outfit to her (insert wink emoji).
|Top; French Connection|
Watch; Tag Heuer
Bracelets; Tiffany, Thomas Sabo & Annie Haak
Fascinator Clip; Somewhere in Malta!
|My first ever fascinator clip and I loved it, so great for keeping your hair off your face!|

Apart from the fascinator clip thingy I purchased whilst out there everything else was grabbed from my wardrobe. I bought these heels from House of Fraser in Autumn last year, they are by Dune and quite possibly one of the comfiest heeled shoes I own. They look great with a skirt or dress as the nude suede gives a 'barely there' affect but equally as chic with jeans (said outfit to be featured here soon). They have a padded front part under the toes too. It doesn't look like they are available anymore but watch out as Dune do tend to repeat their styles. I would actually go as far as saying I would consider buying a second pair in a different colour. I loved the grey suede they did also.

A great heel on them, not too high but just enough
|My girls were flower girls and did me proud as always and pretty much out danced me!|
Decent full on outfit shots aside from the wedding one just never happened, these were as good as it got I'm afraid.
|Airport attire. Comfort needed after a 2.45am start - never again!|
Top & Tommy Hilfiger Belt; TK Maxx
Skater shoes; Next
Watch; Tag Heuer
Cosmetic Pouch; Fendi (large enough for all our passports and items I needed quickly. It was a Christmas gift that got tucked away in the move. So nice to bring out something new for the holiday and I have carried on using it in my handbag daily).
|I got this in TK Maxx's final clearance last year for something silly like £3, it's a great slouchy style top.|
|One of the hardest items I own to style up - my J.Crew purple/blue shorts. I've just resigned to the fact they can only be worn with white or grey simple tops.|
Handbag; gift from Marrakech
