I’ve always found dressing for Spring weddings a bit of a conundrum. The weather in the UK at this time of year is very unpredictable, which makes choosing an outfit more than a week in advance a gamble. Tomorrow (Saturday) I’ll be attending a family wedding and I’ve been obsessed with the weather forecast for the last fortnight!
I have to admit that choosing what to wear for a Spring wedding has proved to be a challenge!
I was rather hoping that we’d have temperatures in the mid teens by now, but no such luck. My original choice has been somewhat in doubt so I hastily put together some alternatives. I have to admit that choosing what to wear for a Spring wedding has proved to be a challenge! But I’ve done my homework and chosen three possible outfits. I’ll be sharing what I decided to wear in next week’s Style With a Smile link up. I’ll try to post on Instagram stories tomorrow too 🙂
What I love about jumpsuits is their versatility: you can create so many different looks depending on what you wear over them, and the footwear you put with them.
A jumpsuit wasn’t originally on my radar (due in part to bathroom issues). But after ordering some Issa jumpsuits in the House of Fraser sale for my holiday I began to see their potential. The ones I’ve ordered are all sleeveless, but worn with a jacket they are both Spring and wedding appropriate. The velvet jacket adds a touch of luxe and avoids looking too corporate. As they won’t be seen much under the trousers I chose plain shoes with a sturdy heel for comfort. I opted for an embellished bag and a pair of earrings that pick out the green in the jumpsuit print.

My black velvet jacket (which I bought in a charity shop) looks smarter and sleeker than faux fur.
The rose gold glitter shoes elongate the legs and add some sparkle. I added a bit more velvet with the cute cat bag (which I recently wore with my bronze pleated skirt). It’s big enough to hold everything I need for the day, and I have the option of tucking the chain inside and using it as a clutch.
