Bring it on September!


This is a little evening post a bit different to the regular style and beauty posts. September is here and I could´t be more excited! Right now, as I am writing this post I feel a bit strange and I don't know why, I just feel a little blue and I thought, maybe, by writing and thinking about how much I like this month, I will cheer up a bit. I guess its just one of those days when your body says "Stop, take a break and take it easy" but its kinda hard for me to avoid writing here on my little corner.

I love this month. Some people love Summer and get a little sad when Autumn arrives but I usually get overly excited when the season comes to visit. The trees have a beautiful arrangement of colours, from bright greens to dark reds… fallen leaves cracking as I walk, warming my hands while holding a big cup of coffee, Vogues big issue, the pastel sky with blue, pink  & purple hues and the list can go on!

September also happens to be my birthday month and to think that I will be 23 this year freaks me out a little bit, although, I know its just a number and I would´t change all the experiences I´ve had on the way for anything in this world. I will save all this profoundness for a birthday post but I do want to let you know that this year I will be running a birthday giveaway again. Right now I have no further details for you but I´ll let you know as sooner than you think. ;)

Hope you have an amazing month and I send you a big hug wherever you are!
xoxo

A GLITZY MATTER



This is perhaps the last glitzy, summery  outfit post of the year. After this, its all going to be coats, oversized scarves and smart layering, which sounds very appealing to me right now but I bet you, I´ll be struggling with the low temperatures, drinking loads of hot tea and complaining from time to time, about how cold it is & how much I miss summer.

As you might remember, I mentioned a couple of times that I have been invited to a wedding. Well, right after receiving the invitation, my mind couldn´t stop thinking about what comes with it; looking for a nice outfit to attend that type of event.


For some reason I left it until the last minute and I underestimated how hard it can be to go out and look for a dress with me, specially when its for a wedding and that wedding happens to be the next day. Imagine going shopping with a slow, indecisive but very stressed person and add the fact that she has a pair of shoes to wear for the day and wants a dress that will go with them. I think we can agree that it can be a bit complicated when you have the perfect pair of shoes and somehow, you decide to look for a dress that will go with the shoes and not the other way… or am I the only girl that has to look for the dress first and then the rest of the stuff?


I thought, as I showed you my dress on the Belfast haul, an outfit post was in order to show you how it all went, and  to proof myself, that a dress from Primark can be good material for a formal event. I say I had to proof myself, because once I became exhausted of searching through so many shops, I sort of found the light in the three floor, fast fashion store and this dress turned out to be great for the occasion!


I wish I could show you more pictures of the reception but as I am not directly familiar with the bride & groom, I felt it was inappropriate as it was such an intimate event. I do have this lovely picture of our table, they were all decorated with this candles, very simple but romantic and with a vintage vibe. The bride was wearing a 1920s style dress with a beautiful veil also inspired on that decade. She was absolutely stunning!
