The Wedding Plan Pt1

Image courtesy of http://www.dottyvintageweddings.co.uk/
As some of you may know, on my 30th birthday my boyfriend asked me to marry him. Although we had talked briefly about getting married at some point, it was a total surprise.

I didn't think I was that bothered about getting married, but it turns out that I am.

And as I am an organisation freak I have gone into list overdrive.  WE HAVEN'T EVEN SET A DATE YET!!!! But I am 99.9% sure that I know what kind of dress I want, what colour my bridesmaids will be wearing, who they will be, approximate guest numbers, that we will be having a non-religious service and a possible venue. I have even thought of silly things such as what decorations to have and timings of the day. I swear I am not normally this crazy.

I am seriously driving the boy crazy. I am pretty sure that once we have decided on a date, I will become much more relaxed (hopefully!!) and once things can actually be put in motion I can take things in my stride and not think I am turning into Monica.

I am totally going to go overboard. I have never planned a wedding, so I am not sure what to expect or what I should be doing first and I expect that at more than one point I'll cry and suggest that we just run away somewhere and get married in secret.

I will love you all forever if you could recommend things like florist, MUA's etc, etc.

Are you married? Do you have any planning tips for me? Do all women turn in to a bridezilla?

30 x 30 OOTD's

Guess what? I am already a bit behind. I totally forgot to take photos on Saturday and I was a bit sleep deprived Sunday due to an impromptu firework party so I had a PJ day. 

I did do photos yesterday so will catch up in the next day or so.

I am really struggling with jeans and jeggings at the moment. I really want some wide leg jeans without a seam down the front. Can you recommend any?


PS. I apologise for my shoddy photos. I am struggling to find somewhere with good light to take photos!

30 x 30 - Post 1

I am throwing myself straight back into blogging my taking part in a 30 x 30 challenge thanks to Steph.  

I haven't fully decided what my 30 items will be but I am going to try and wear something different everyday. Some items will be reused (black work pants come to mind), some will be new but not yet worn but most will be from my wardrobe.

I am really going to have to try and wear something different everyday. Especially on a Monday when I study all day and don't leave the house. 

I actually decided to start Monday instead of Sunday just to make thing easier.

Day 1

Primark oversized jumper
Leggings 
Converse


Day 2

Simply Be Black Swing dress
Leggings
Simply Be black pointy flats.


I have decided that leggings/tights and shoes are not going to be included in my 30 items. To be honest, I am not actual sure I have 30 items in my wardrobe that I want to wear. I have lots of items in a pile for eBay. Where possible I am going to try and not buy anything else new this month. BUT it is my birthday at the end of the month so a new party dress is a must!!!!

As well as me and Steph a few other lovely ladies are taking part in the 30 x 30 challenge.

OOTD - Floral Skate Baby Doll Dress

This Saturday was Style XL in Birmingham (that will be another post) and I had already planned on what I was going to wear. I saw this floral baby doll skater on the Simply Be website a week or so ago and knew it would be ideal.
 
I decided to get the tall length so It came below my knees and so it would force me to go bare legged. The dress is really light weight too, so it definitely going to be coming in my suitcase to Egypt!
 
 
I sized up in this dress as Simply Be sizing has been a bit all over the place recently but I think my normal size would have been fine. 
 
I had so much fun at Style XL, it was so nice to see everyone again. I can't wait to show you all my photos.

From My Wardrobe

This weeks from wardrobe comes courtesy of one of Hollie's resent blogs sale. Seen as this is a new to me dress I decided that it would be perfect for this weeks From My Wardrobe (formally known as Wardrobe Wednesday).

The dress is originally from Simply Be and is really lovely. It sit just below my knee and ties at the waist. Its a 22 and is a tad too big but I still like it.


Also, look!!! Bare legs!!! Its only taken 29 years!

Its also Style XL this weekend. If you haven't got tickets yet, I urge you to do so! Its going to be awesome!!

Will I see you there?
