DREAM DAY STYLE X LOVER.LY

Getting Married is no small feat. There's so much to worry about, one of which is 'How should I look?' And so, when Lover.ly asked me to create three wedding looks for certain wedding settings...well, how could I say no? It sounded like fun! The themes are City Glam, Beach Affair, and Rustic Chic. Check out my iterations of these themes below:


CITY GLAM

City Glam Wedding

For the City Glam look, the Alice Temperley gown was my inspiration. It's so beautiful and the detailing is amazing. It also was a little 1920's in New York style for me. I paired it with a short face-framing veil so nothing hides the detailing on the dress. The D'Orsay bow heels keep it fresh and modernlike. And of course, a sexy, floral scent. I know we're not supposed to choose our engagement rings, but I can't help but think this square-cut diamond would be a perfect match for the look, modern and beautiful.


RUSTIC CHIC


Rustic Charm

For this look, the photo is of the woods, which made me think fairytales! So this ethereal, lacy creation...like a fairy princess dress, matched with an equally fairy-like veil. Imagine this at sunset, floating in the woods.

For the feet, these beautiful satin pumps in pale pink that matches the dress' bow. Also, pale pink nail polish. Finally, a yellow cushion diamond ring that sparkles in the setting sun. 


BEACH AFFAIR


Beach Lovely

Finally, here is my Beach Affair look, which is what my wedding dreams are made of. I saw it immediately, something less formal and more laid-back. This beautiful tulle dress in blue grey was so perfect I think I'm finding something like it. Glowing, tan skin will look great on the beach. No veil for this look, I was thinking more of a crystal headband on beachy waves. Since walking in heels would look stupid walking down on the sandy ground, these Jimmy Choo shiny wedges would do just fine, and aren't they lovely? Finally, the ring I chose is this diamond-encrusted band. Who said engagement rings always have to have one diamond anyways?

So, here are my ideas. Sigh...my wedding is in the city right now, but I am so going for Beach Affair next time. How about you? What would you choose? And is there anything you would add?

Let me know in the comments, I love hearing from you!

AUTUMN IN MY MIND


Top and Sunnies: Stradivarius// Skirt: MDS// Booties: Belle// Bag: Nessa// Necklace: c/o Jewelry Coco

++

I don't know what happens come September. One minute I'm still in the mood for teeny tiny crops and shorts, and then poof... I'm dreaming of jackets, turtlenecks and fall in general again. So, I've come with the perfect transition piece that will not feel so....hottt...a thin, tissue-like turtleneck top, and my cutout booties. With summer-appropriate nautical stripes and sunnies of course, because technically, it's still summer and hot enough to cook using solar energy. Haha...I know...lame joke. Ooh and this uber-cute shot of color with this cool necklace. So pretty!

I don't know how to finish all my list of things to do on such little time anymore. I have a ton everyday and only a few hours a day to do it. Oh my gosh, I wish I could invite you all =) Bachelorette party is tomorrow..hahahaha..let's see if we can get some shots of that. Tee hee. Anyways, who else is as excited for 'real' autumn as I am?

See you soon,

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES


Shirt: Vintage// Jeans and Sunnies: Pull & Bear// Shoes: local store// Necklace: Forever 21// Bracelets: Stradivarius// Watch: ASOS

In a perfect world, every piece of clothing we have will have endless possibilities with the rest of our closet. However, I am so happy to announce that I already have some, one of which is this basic button down I got at Me&George Vintage in Hong Kong for the whopping price of 25 HKD. Yep, with how many times I've worn it, and how many times you've seen it on this blog, it's long been justified already. And I still have a dozen ideas coming. It's prompted me to spend more time getting even more basic button down shirts (most preferably at cheap prices like this one). And now I've scored the perfect white one in Zara.

Today, it's a stripe on stripe outfit. I still love these jeans! Together, they seemed like a match made in stripe heaven. I accessorized with not-so-basic gold jewelry, including a new, humongous pearl bangle. Yep, Chanel-esque 'cool girl' pearls! First it was the ring, now it's the bangle. Pretty soon it'd be that huge pearl choker. Oh yes, I love me some pearls when they come in these proportions. How about you, what are your thoughts on the giant pearl trend? And while we're at it, tell me about some super versatile clothes you have.

I'm still super, duper busy, but no pain, no gain! Wish me luck!

See you soon,
