Romantic Wedding Outfit | Florals and Pearls

Pink Shoes, Floral Hanky Hem Dress and Blue Wrap | Fake Fabulous

Do you ever reach for something SO far away from your normal personal style that you almost have to give yourself a shake...?

"Erm, what ARE you doing Sam!?"

Well, for me, today was one of those days.

This outfit is a perfect example of a romantic, floaty and feminine look... not my usual vibe at all.
I'm even wearing a string of pearls.
Feeling like a lady and (surprisingly) loving it.

Sometimes it's great fun to play around with your personal style.
Fashion is supposed to be FUN after all!

This is a great wedding guest outfit.
Romantic and pretty.
Appropriate for the occasion.
Comfortable and easy to wear.
Dressed up enough to make the effort but not too OTT to be disrespectful.

(You know those outfits you see that are trying to outshine the bride... usually plunged too low or slashed too high!)

A floaty hanky-hemmed dress in soft colours is easily accessorised with a metal bow belt and a string of pearls.
I could have added something geometric or bold but sometimes it's good to wear a different piece.
It felt pretty good.
I've added my favourite wrap (which I wear everywhere from sofa surfing to yoga) and these pink shoes.

These shoes are THE comfiest heels I own.
They're old Marc Jacobs and I've never found a pair as comfortable.
The heel is not high at all and I can easily walk around all day.
Maybe not the sexiest of heels but perfect for an all-day event.

Where did you get your perfect all-day heel?
Or, are you still on the hunt?
I'd love to hear about your favourites and have some new brands and styles to search for!

  2. Oh Sam!!! I love you in this romantic look!! The print of that dress is SO pretty and your wrap and bright pink shoes finish everything off beautifully. You may not think that you have romantic style leanings but I see it in your outfits/personna quite often,especially during the warmer months. I'll bet you were the prettiest guest at the event!
    I WANT a cashmere wrap!!!:-)

      Thank you!
      You should treat yourself or ask Santa to sort you out?!
      I use mine almost every day.

  3. It's good to step out of our comfort zone from time to time and Sam you're doing that with such panache. I love this hanky hem dress and that cosy cashmere wrap must be an absolute asset to your wardrobe. You're positively glowing here!

    Have a super week!

      I felt comfortable and confident.

  4. You look adorable in this 'romantic' look too, gorgeous!. I like particularly that you added a cozy wrap and sensible heels to keep it comfortable for an all-day event! and still looking elegant!
    I wear flats all the time and have had to build my 'wedding appropriate' outfits around my shoes. So this means lots of dressy pants!

  6. You look just lovely in this outfit, Samantha! I love the handkerchief hemline and the soft floral mix, and especially the pops of bolder colour in the wrap and shoes. I've just been to a wedding myself, and my shoes did NOT hold up. Yowch!

  7. Sam.
    That wrap. I love it! It looks wonderful with your dress. I just love larger florals and this print is so pretty, the soft color looks great on you. The hem is so cool and different. The heels are a great color and just perfect for standing at an event such as this.
    Have a great week!
