This summer has been a little crazy, we didn’t do any travelling for the first 5 months of the year knowing that the wedding season this year was going to be full! I had never been to Corsica and didn’t know much about it but it was a beautiful destination and incredible place for a wedding. I spent what seemed like eternity looking for the right dress – the dress code was Summer Cocktail – and I always feel better over dressed than under so decided that a colourful maxi dress would be perfect. I found a few gems but they were sold out in my size so I eventually settled on this orange maxi dress from Asos, such a steal!

I don’t suggest spending all your money on a trendy solid gold lobster pendant because it’s on the cover of Vogue, buy jewellery that will last forever and look good for seasons on end. Take your time, check out multiple brands and then buy something you love and that will go with everything. Diamonds may be a girls best friend but pearls make…
