And I thought it was a vague line between like and love

What I'm wearing:

Dress - ASOS
Jacket - Primark (I know)
Scarf - H&M
Shoes - Dorothy Perkins

Title - Tommy Reilly, Jackets

It was a lovely sunny day on Sunday, which made a very welcome change to the dull skies we've had to endure recently.  It was deceptive though; when you stepped outside it was still bitterly cold, cue scarves and coats buttoned up and wishing you'd brought earmuffs. 
I wore this dress on Christmas day last year, I love how rich and warm a colour it is, and it also has little 3/4 sleeves of lace which I always prefer over strappy ones for some reason.

White...Part Two

On to another round of oh so pretty wedding dresses, this time of the more princessy and plain old big dresses.

I don't usually like this type of dress... usually because it's so HUGE and netted and stiff and (more often than not) very blingy and sparkly.  These ones sort of buck that idea though; they're so soft and simple.  Some dresses lend themselves to simplicity, like the detailed ones from last time, but here, the fact that the dress is so big and plain... it almost makes it even more pretty.  That there's only one or two little bits of detail - a ruffle there or a tiny sparkle there, makes it all the more super elegant and gorgeous.  Sigh...

White...Part One

I'm not going crazy wedding obsessed or anything, I just Love (with a capital L no less) no sheer prettiness and gorgeous quality wedding dresses have.  I'm sure it's the same with a good load of girls across the world; we all dream of that one perfect dress.  I've just had a little burst of browsing the internet for dresses and thought I'd share them here.

The dresses above all have beautiful detail on their backs.  And yes, Bella Swan's dress does feature there, but I just love the lace and button detail, it's just so delicate and pretty!  I'm loving all the lacy looks about at the moment - maybe it's as a result of THAT wedding dress Kate wore, but I'm not complaining!
