Mama Style - Wedding Guest Edit

Yesterday we were invited to a wedding at the stunning Llanerch Vineyard. If you follow me on social media you will know that i've started a health and fitness regime which ended up leaving me in a bit of a pickle about what I could wear. I've already changed shape and I didn't fit into anything in my wardrobe! Hooray an excuse to shop. This normally would be my idea of heaven (shopping alone for myself that is), however i'm very in-between sizes at the moment and I really didn't want to spend lots of money on something I wouldn't be able to wear again.

I must've trawled around every shop in Cardiff and tried a million outfits on. There were quite a few things I liked in Coast but they were going to cost a small fortune. I eventually stumbled into Monsoon which generally isn't a shop that I look in for clothes for myself (love their kids clothes).

I found a gorgeous black lace dress which I thought would be perfect. I just prayed that it would actually fit.


I tried it on in 2 different sizes and I was amazed to find the smaller size actually fit me. i couldn't have been happier as it meant the dress should hopefully last me a while. What I really liked about it, is how versatile it is. With the right shoes, bag and accessories it could be worn for a special occasion or with a smart pair of flats or kitten heels, it could be worn on a date night. It's black which is great as it can match anything and everything.


The style is very victorian. The lace and high neck make it special. I loved the cap sleeves too. 

I picked up a beautiful bag from Accessorize. I was instantly drawn to it. I felt like my daughter. I saw something pink, flowery and sparkly and I had to have it. It's the perfect size for a clutch bag as I managed to fit all my essentials in it. They have a beautiful selection of bags that are similar to this one so if you need one, i'd highly recommend checking there first. 


I wore the dress with a pair of nude shoes that I had from Marks and Spencer. They are the comfiest pair of high shoes i've ever owned. I must remember to see if they have them in any other colours. 








As you can see from the pictures, it was a beautiful, sunny day. I forgot my actual camera so we had to take all these photos on my phone which i'm gutted about as the quality would have been much better on the camera. 

I've been to the vineyard many times before for a drink (you know me, I love my wine) but i'd never been there for a wedding. It was a stunning venue and the food was fantastic.
