I love a wedding, especially a Summer wedding as it means I get to wear a dress and shoes that I wouldn’t normally wear on a day to day basis. I don’t think we went to a wedding last year, it would appear a lot of our friends are already married now, so the invites have become fewer over the last few years since our own wedding as we were the last in our group to get married.
In a few months however, one of our friends who has just got married in Florida is having her reception in the UK, so I will of course need a new outfit for the occasion.
I have always loved red so when I was asked if I would like to review an outfit from JD Williams, the spice of life dress pictured above jumped straight out at me. The dress is a lovely fit with front button detailing and an elasticated panel at the back. The skirt is layered which was a surprise to begin with as I wasn’t sure how I would like the layers, but actually the length of the dress on me compliments the layers and it feels really comfortable.
I think what really stood out to me in the dress aside from the bold print, was the ribbon around the waist. There is nothing better to hide a multitude of sins around the tummy area that being able to position a belt accessory. By tying mine to the side it detracts attention to the waist.
I love the idea of wearing heels with dresses to weddings, but I always know that my feet will hurt after a short while and I don’t walk comfortable in heels, or I’ll have to walk over a grassed area and the heels will sink, so I decided to teem my dress with some pretty flat shoes. These leather mule sandals were a perfect choice from a wide range available online, and I knew they would be comfortable just by looking at them. Comfortable they are and they are perfect for more than just wearing to a Summer wedding. I recently wore them out for dinner with a pair of jeans, and have worn them with leggings, so they really will go with anything and I know they will become my favourite for the Summer season.
Feeling comfortable whilst looking smart is very important and I have been happy with the choices I made from JD Williams for the outfit. Everything fits well, and the same can be said for previous purchases I have made via JD Williams as well, so perhaps remember them next time you’re looking for a new outfit.
Disclosure – I was gifted the outfit in return for this post
