The Wedding Guest Edit

Scottish fashion blogger
Dress - Zara
Bag - Debenhams
Headpiece - Accessorize

One of the things that are great about weddings is that it gives you a reason to dress up! When else would I wear this gorgeous headpiece? The only tricky part is that there are so many unwritten rules to dressing for a wedding. You're not supposed to wear white, dresses shouldn't be too short, jackets should be smart, handbags are typically tiny - it's not just the bride who puts in lots of time and effort into perfecting her look! 

Florals are always a good option, and if dresses aren't your thing then the two-piece below is an equally stylish alternative.

Bird print dress - Louche

If you don't like having the tops of your arms on show or you just want to add some glamour to a simple dress then you could opt for a beaded jacket.

Necklace - Zara

Blazers are a good choice of jacket and this soft tailored style below is so chic and modern.

If you're looking for lace then Zara has plenty of beautiful styles to choose from.

Wearing heels through the day to night can be a killer for our feet. Luckily this season there are a few alternatives to stilettos from low sling-back shoes to block heel sandals.

Have you got any weddings coming up that you're preparing for? Hopefully this can give you a little inspiration!

Off-the-Shoulder Styling Ideas

One of my favourite trends this season has got to be the off-the-shoulder top. It's a fun and flirty look which can be worn from day to night. If you're wondering what to pack for your summer holiday then I'd suggest this as it's great for revealing your sun-kissed skin! 

I've come up with two outfit ideas to style a cropped off-the-shoulder top. My main tip would be to pair it with either culottes for a chic look or channel this season's bohemian trend with a high-waisted floaty skirt.

Sunglasses - Ellery

The neckline of this top should be the main focus so there's no need to add a necklace. Instead, opt for bangles or drop earrings. I love the stacked bangles above which add to the glamour of my first outfit, inspired by Dolce & Gabbana's SS16 collection.

Culottes - Alice + Olivia
Bag - M2malletier
Earrings - Elise Dray

Since this style of top is so feminine, accessories such as cat-eye sunglasses and clutch bags are a great way to complete the look. I'm coveting the Sophia Webster sandals above which make an exciting addition to the monochrome separates.

Let me know what you think of these styling sets. Have you added this must-have piece to your wardrobe yet?

Babe of a Bomber Jacket

Floral embroidered bomber jacket

Boots - Topshop
Bracelet - Forever 21
Handbag - H&M

The bomber jacket has to be my hero piece for SS16. In fact, it has been for the past couple of summers. Last year I bought an over-sized satin bomber jacket in lilac and the year before that I couldn't stop wearing my light-weight floral one. 

This season every store on the high street is offering their own versions. I feel like I've found the champion of them all though! The floral embroidery on the back is so unique and I love the combination of gold, navy and pink. The stripes down the arms and ribbed trims add a sporty element to the oriental design. It has all the elements of this season's bomber jacket in one so it's no wonder it sold out so quickly!

Thanks again to Sophie Pellegrini for taking these photos for me in a lovely part of Glasgow's West End. You can see all the beautiful editorials she's shot here.

Nobody's Child Wishlist

There's a new brand that bloggers are going crazy for and I think you need on your fashion radar too, so let me introduce you to Nobody's Child. The London based company was formed by two family run businesses, specialising in textiles and manufacturing, who joined forces to create something special. Their aim is to "change the face of fast fashion" by offering on-trend clothing that's ethical AND affordable! I wouldn't have known this was possible but the company claim to have full control of every process, which includes factories based in Britain for knitting, dying and printing. 

The in-house design team is located in London, and they really know how to nail this summer's biggest trends. Off the shoulder tops, bomber jackets, culottes, pleated midi skirts - the list goes on! If you're anything like me, you're not going to find it easy to choose from so many stylish pieces. 

Since I've been wearing trousers a lot recently, I couldn't resist their high-waisted wide leg trousers. I opted for one pair in plain black and the other with a beautiful floral print. The latter were worn as soon as I received them in the mail and made me feel great when I attended the launch of Hunted Vintage (another online brand you need to check out!) 

There's lots more on my wishlist from Nobody's Child which you can see below. Feel free to make my life easier and let me know what you think I should order next!
