The Classics

A breton top is a true wardrobe classic, loved by women all over the world for it's versatily, simplicity and classic style. It can be dressed up or down, for summer or winter, everyone has their own style of wearing them. I've styled mine exactly how I like my clothes, laidback, comfortable and non fussy. I love how a striped tee can make your outfit look and feel pulled toghether with minimal effort.

Outfit details: Striped tee (borrowed from my sister) FREE, white ribbed tee underneath (awear), denimn shorts (RiverIsland) 10 euro on sale, flats (Primark), Cream necklace (present from friend) FREE, Purple necklace (bought on holiday in france six years ago), gold bangle (secondhand)

So this is my tan for the wedding, I got a FakeBake spray tan which was an interesting experience to say the least! I quite a shock when I woke up the next morning and it had turned green and I mean really green. Luckily a wash removed the green and left quite a nice light tan PHEW. I don't think anyone would appreciate a green tinged bridesmaid, would make for some entertaining wedding photos.
As you many have noticed I have worked out to make my images larger at last, I am so cuffed! Manicures and pedicures tonight for the final night of wedding grooming, this bridesmaid buisness defintley has it's perks :) (having to walk up the aisle in front of 150 people is however not one of those perks)

  1. It turned green, oh my God, thats random!! At least it turned out well in the end though.:) Love your Breton striped top. Cute outfit.:)SarahD

  2. I love the classics- they are the staple to every closet. And your tan is very natural! You must be so excited for your wedding :)


  3. Oh man, can you explain to me how to make pictures bigger? Please and thank you! Annnd. I love this striped top on you. Borrowing clothes from sisters is the best! A little bit more of a challenge for me, though, my sister is only 10. So it usually doesn't work out.

  4. Aha ha can't believe it turned green! That's crazy! I love the top, stripey shirts just tend to go with everything!

    ooohh wedding's are so fun! Although I do agree the whole walking in front of a tonne of people is quite scary! Have a lovely time though! xxx
