My Summer Style Guide- How to Dress for a Wedding
Our 4th wedding anniversary is coming up this week so I’ve had wedding attire on my mind. I love going to weddings, I think they are just a feast for the eyes: the cake, the dress, the flowers and all the guests. But dressing for a wedding can be so stressful; my tip is to read the invitation carefully or just ask the couple. There is nothing worse than being way under dressed for a wedding or going to a conservative wedding with a non conservative neckline. My recommendation is to always pack a cardi in your car just in case and never ever wear a white dress, no matter how cool the bride says she is with it. Even if you look great in white people will assume you are being disrespectful.
My biggest style tip is to take a cue from U.K. style and wear something fabulous on your head. How many occasions do you have to wear a huge hair piece? I’m betting not that many, so take advantage.
Are you guys attending some weddings this summer? Do you enjoy the fashion parade or does all the potential for mishaps stress you out?

This is a true smile of pure happiness. The snow is gone! I can’t believe it. The sun came out the last two days and the snow melted so fast. I wore my flats outside today and it felt so good to be able to switch it up in the footwear department.
I have to say that even though most of the snow is gone it’s still quite chilly. So thankfully I have my trusty classic trench. It is the perfect transition piece, it’s way lighter than a winter coat but it’s still long enough to keep you covered and warm.
Aren’t these pups the cutest?!
Who else is loving the neon and neutrals trend? I am. It brings me back to when I was a little girl in the 80’s. It’s so bright and fun.
I hope everyone is having a super week.
Take A Look At Yourself
Okay, so I know it’s not great blogger form to take your photos in the mirror BUT my hair looked so good in the morning with it’s natural curls that I thought I’d better quickly take some photos before the wind deflated them (see below).
I’m smiling, but my hair isn’t. Wind is so cruel.
And say hello to my blur of cat Felix.

I was pretty happy with this outfit, I feel like it looks really put together but office appropriate (even though most of the people in my office wear jeans and sweatshirts).
Anyway, I promise better photos tomorrow.
P.S. if you know where my title of my post is from you will win….MY Admiration and Respect.
Flowers in the Snow
Hey Party Peeps! Look at me, I am finally taking photos outside again. I mean, I am just standing on my balcony but it is outside. It was a balmy 5C degrees out today!
I love this dress, so much. I think it is super flattering, especially since I have a fair bit of hips to me. However, I feel like this outfit is so uninspired. There is no real pizzazz to this outfit, no edge. I am looking into ways to improve it. But it was suitable for work.

I added this last shot because I thought it was a little ridiculous to be outside in my bare feet right next to the snow. But I out right refuse to wear socks anymore, I am just so tired of those little feet prisons.
Anyone else hate socks? I can’t be alone in this.
This is my I-Wish-It-Was-Spring outfit. Even though I love where I am living right now, like I love it. This place is so magical. However, the last couple of days I have been longing for warmer days. So, it has been a little bit warmer (-8 degrees) the last couple of days so I have been wishful dressing like it was a lot warmer. I should probably cut it out before I get sick…

Before I go I must gush about how much I love this scarf. Seriously, it’s so big and plushy, it keeps me so warm and makes an excellent hood too.
And I should mention how much fun Minigo and I had outside in the snow.
Hope y’all had an excellent day.
Long Lost Friend
The other day when I thought my luggage was lost and gone forever I was moaning because I thought I had lost this vintage cardigan. In honor of it be returned to be I thought I would throw it on. Sadly, the photos don’t do it justice; it has beautiful tiny seed bead flower embroidery and pearl buttons. I paired it with this lilac pink lace dress; the whole outfit is very light and soft which is not normally something that attracts me. But I am loving feeling like a lady in this ensemble.
…And yes I am standing on my bed which is sadly just a mattress on the floor, please just ignore it.

This necklace has so many baubles, but it is so light weight. Plus it makes a slight jingle when I walk, which I really love. for some odd reason.
