Friday [Bridesmaid] Frock O’clock

Last weekend was Jessica’s wedding and I missed sharing a friday frock with you all as I was running around like a headless chicken, picking up last minute items, decorating the marquee, practicing my walk down the aisle and preening Jess, (In another life I should have been a nail technician…) I hope I can make it up to you all today by sharing my outfit.

Fortunately Jess and I agreed that something grown up and elegant was what she wanted her bridesmaids in. All three of us are married ladies (and two are mummies,) so it seemed more appropriate to look for a thoroughly grown up dress. We’re all pretty different shapes and sizes too so it needed to be flattering for everyone (the usual bridesmaids issue,) and I was really hoping for comfortable, for eating and dancing.

In the end, once Jess decided on peach as her colour scheme, I spotted this. Luckily we all loved it, including Jess, as it was the first and the last dress I saw in an appropriate shade and style all summer. I ended up accessorising with a beaded sparkling headband, crystal deco style earrings, a matching bag and a grey enamel floral cuff that I can’t find a picture of online anywhere. Unusually, I went for sandals, as a full shoe wouldn’t have been appropriate with the dress and managed to keep my almost 5 inch heels on all night.

When Jess is back from honeymoon I’ll share all the details – I can’t wait. But for now, you can see a sneak peek of the wedding on Julia’s blog. I hope you liked it – I loved every minute.

Have a fabulous weekend readers!

Friday Frock O’clock

Todays dress is an event dress for sure, but it’s also the kind of dress that people lust after and wish they could simply lounge around the house in because it is so darn glamorous. I imagine Annabel would wear it to one of her events, or perhaps the Any Other Woman team, after all it is in team colours. Myself, if there had been a second Love My Dress Soiree, as there was this time last year, I would be wearing this…

The online store image doesn’t do her justice but oh my, look at the gorgeous press image. Just bohemian enough for summer and perfect for a wedding or fabulous party. Anybody thirty soon? Please buy it and rock it with a beaded clutch and some killer keels… or flats for that matter and an Ibiza/summer fields floral circlet headband.

You’re welcome readers.

Love,

Friday Food: Honey Roast Peaches

I’m a huge fan of a peach. When they’re in season there’s nothing better and I’m currently stuffing myself with the flat white peaches that are in the supermarkets right now.

I love the adaptability of peaches in cooking too, I’ve made a peach and bresaola salad before now and they make great summer crumble or cobblers. I wanted to make something similar to todays recipe but then I realised when I spotted this recipe over on Rose’s blog, The Londoner, that I actually couldnt do it better than she has. Rose has a knack of writing about food that is ridiculously indulgent and making it sound super sexy. I’m not going to argue with her on this dish.

Head on over to The Londoner for the full Honey Baked Peaches recipe and to ogle at the pictures. Incidentally, Rose is nominated in the Cosmo blog awards (Best Food Blog) so make sure you vote for her if you appreciate this offering! (And Florence Finds of course!)
