I’m back! Its been a little while on here hasn’t it? Well since I last posted over a month ago, something pretty big has happened. I GOT MARRIED! If you follow me over on Instagram or Twitter then you’ll have no doubt seen a few sneaky photos of our day. We had the absolute best day we could have wished for, the most amazing weather and celebrated in style with all of our favourite people. Tomorrow will be my first day back at work after two weeks full of fun, excitement and a good dose of relaxation, so to say that the wedding comedown and Sunday blues are real right now would be a huge understatement. I can’t wait to share all of our professional photos with you when we get them back from our photographer, and I’m hoping to do a series of posts all about the details (the outfits, the hair and make up, the venue, our suppliers etc). Plus we have finally booked our honeymoon which we’re counting down the days to. Cuba here we come!
Whilst the fact we don’t have a wedding to plan anymore is a little sad (seriously, what will I talk about now?!), it now means I have my free time back to actually have a social life once again, and get back in to the swing of blogging, starting today with a new outfit post! Obviously the weather right now is incredible, so I’ve been wearing a lot of summery looks and have made a few cheeky holiday purchases which I’d intended to put away in the suitcase, but its so hot they’ve just had to come out early! One of those pieces is this pair of gingham shorts, which I absolutely love. These are a recent purchase from Pretty Little Thing and they’re so light and comfortable, perfect for the heatwave!
These are going to look so nice on holiday with a little cropped bandeau or even thrown over a swimsuit or bikini, but I couldn’t resist wearing them here with a bright tee! This one was from Primark a couple of months back and I love the colour so much. I wore it tucked in to show off the sweet ruffled waistband of the shorts which is super flattering on the waist. This outfit is pretty typical of me for the hot weather – a simple tee, shorts and trainers combo to stay cool and comfy in the sun!
In other exciting news, something I don’t think I’ve mentioned on here just yet is the fact that I’ve been shortlisted for a Northern Blogger Award! SAY WHAT?! I’m up for Fashion & Style Blogger amongst some incredible ladies and I honestly can’t believe it. Its so amazing to be recognised for an award like this, particularly being a ‘smaller’ blogger when it comes to follower numbers etc. I’ve been doing this for a pretty long time now, so to finally feel like my little space on the internet has been recognised in something so big makes me feel so proud of everything I’ve done and created on here so far! Thank you to anyone who nominated me – it means the world!
If you’d like to vote for me, you can do so HERE – you’ll find me on the Fashion & Style Blogger page – it only takes a mo and I’d be so grateful! Votes close on the 20th July – Lets see if we can do this shall we?!
