Wedding season is in full swing, and although I don´t have as many to attend to as usual this summer (two of them happen to be in September, weeks and days before my due date – eek!), I thought I would share what is in my eyes, my ideal summer wedding outfit…
For me, remaining relatively conservative (nothing too short, no cleavage) is a personal must. Also, not wearing anything that will stand out for all the wrong reasons, in terms of colour, shape or material. To sum it up – I tend to stick to either neutral colours, or summer brights, in soft, feminine styles – such as a maxi, knee or midi length dress, in a floaty material or a flattering A-line shape.
Now that I have a (not so little anymore) 6-month bump on me – my personal style rules above, apply even more! I have found so far, whilst attending a few weddings and formal events in the past few months, that dresses with sleeves are the most flattering, in a soft scoop neck and preferably a maxi style. Sounds a bit too boring? Choose a fun summer colour to brighten things up; I fell head over heels in this dream of a floral printed yellow maxi dress from the Nine by Savannah Miller collection at Debenhams – which also comes in a shorter version here.
I love every thing about this dress; the soft and light material, the ruched sleeves, the scoop neck, the semi-open back, the print, the fresh colour… Can you tell I am a big fan? But most importantly, I love the way it enhances and flatters my bump in all the right ways. Teamed with some neutral accessories, with the perfect nude sling backs, scalloped clutch and gold earrings – the outfit sums up all my personal style rules into one.
