My Birthday Wishlist: Michael Kors Watch

Sources: One, Two, Three, Four, Five

Seeing as my birthday is approaching (10th September), I have started to put some thought into what will be on my wish list this year. I also thought a good way to document this as I'm hit with inspiration is to post it on my blog too, and see what everyone else thinks. So, currently my biggest want would be a new watch. But not any old watch, a Michael Kors watch

More than often I find myself browsing the web, cooing over these gorgeous, chunky, statement timepieces! But it usually doesn't take too long for me to come flying back down to earth when I realise my bank account just doesn't feel the same way. So I figured, why not just bite the bullet and put it on my birthday list? I think these watches are ideal for occasion gifts and would make any style conscious lady's dreams come true!

As for me,  I just can't make my mind up which style I prefer! I love the rose gold and the large numbers on the Chronograph watch, but then the chunky weight of the Oversized Gold Chronograph absolutely takes my breath anyway! Anything that shiny and bold cannot be missed!! The great thing about the Michael Kors watches is how even though every other blogger has one, they have become absolutely timeless and still is a real statement piece - I don't see them going out of trend any time soon.

So, mum - can I have a Michael Kors' for my birthday? ;)

The Great Escape

Dress: H&M, Wedges: New Look, Floral Crown: New Look (old). Jack Wears: All Primark ;)

Life has been hectic recently to say the least. I've had a string of bad to worse scenarios for the past two weeks, but my silver lining to this all was attending my beautiful, good friend Charlotte's wedding yesterday. Charlotte was my rock at uni, especially during final year and we slogged through all that hard work together, so it was wonderful to get the opportunity to share in her beautiful wedding day with her and her family!

Seeing as life has been so stressful, I didn't give myself a lot of time to put an outfit together - however, I am very pleased with what I came out with in the end. I'm completely in love with this black maxi dress from H&M that I picked up this week - I felt like a Grecian goddess and the style is so flattering. I've been looking for an opportunity to wear my floral crown I picked up in New Look last summer forever, and so I thought when is better than a summer wedding? And finally my brand new tan wedges are a dream come true, I am guaranteed to be wearing these boho dreams all summer long! 

Thought I'd sneak in a little picture of Jack too as it's always so lovely to see him dressed up smart! He picked up this gorgeous blue check shirt from Primark in the week for £8! I absolutely love Primark's mens wear!  

The ceremony and reception were all held at Warkwick House in Southam and it really was perfect in every way! The ceremony was actually held outside and it looked like something out of a movie plus the sun was shining all day long! It really was what I needed to help get my mind off all that has been going on as of recent.

Have you got any summer weddings you are attending? I'd love to see your outfits!! Nothing like a good old fashioned wedding ;)
