A Beautiful Day for a Welsh Wedding

Hey Lovelies,

A slightly different blog post from me today, just a little heads up, it's quite long so sorry about that!

I hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday weekend! I have just got back from Cardiff where my beautiful cousin got married to her boyfriend of 11 years! Much to everyone's surprise, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, and some of us even got a little burnt. My family and boyfriend and I travelled up to Cardiff on Friday where we stayed in a beautiful hotel. On Saturday, we got up, had breakfast and got ready for the wedding. I wore my lovely new maxi dress from Little Mistress, teamed with nude New Look heels and clutch bag.

We made our way to a little church for the ceremony and my cousin, as usual, looked absolutely stunning!

After taking many, many photos, throwing confetti and blowing bubbles, we made our way back to the hotel for the reception where we were greeted with champagne and canap├ęs. We took even more photos, drank more then sat down for a lovely meal and listened to the speeches - which were short but sweet. The rest of the evening then consisted of dancing, singing, taking photos in a Photo Booth, eating, and even more photos. 

It was an absolutely gorgeous day, and I couldn't be happier for the lovely couple :) I'm going to leave you with a few pictures from the day!

Pretty in Plum

Hey lovelies,

This week has been a busy one, hence the late post! I celebrated the end of the uni year with a Sports Ball and then headed back home to my beautiful little village in Surrey on Tuesday. Since getting home, I have been settling back in, and sorting through my clothes, quickly realised that I have too many... So I am selling a whole load of tops, trousers, shoes, dresses, jumpsuits, playsuits and shorts on Depop (username: jappleton4) and Vinted (username: jessappleton4), go check them out! I also have a fairly busy week coming up with a couple of interviews and an assessment centre, finishing up with spending a few days in Cardiff for my cousin's wedding *exciting*.

Anyways, onto today's outfit and my Dad kindly agreed to take my pictures for me! You may have seen this coord on my Instagram (shameless plug!) when I went to my cousin's hen do and I absolutely loved it. As you are probably aware, I love Pretty Little Thing as I have bought quite a few items from there. This coord is so sophisticated and flattering, I love the little knot detail on the front as it mixes things up. The material feels really nice and is stretchy so it hugs all the right places. 

I've gone for a plum and white colour theme here as I feel that the shoes and bag go really well with this outfit. The trouser legs are quite long so the heels need to be fairly big - not that you can actually see them in the pictures! Although the palazzo-style is actually really flattering, not something I would have previously thought; think I'm going to have to invest in some more!

I hope you all had a good week!

In The Nude

Hey lovelies

I am super excited that I have now finished my second year of uni!! Handed my last piece of coursework in on Tuesday and had an exam on Wednesday, meaning that I am all done for the summer! I am staying at uni for a few more days to spend time with my friends, plus we have a Sports Ball on Sunday which I am really looking forward to. I've spent the last 5 weeks with no makeup on and wearing comfy clothes, it will be nice to get all dressed up!

Anyways, onto todays look. The weather has gone horrid again, which I am not happy about, but it does mean I pretty much live in jumpers such as this one. I love my nude and pastel colours and this ASOS jumper is such a beautiful colour, plus its super comfy and lovely and warm. I styled it up with my favourite white ripped jeans from MissPap which are a lovely stretchy material so they fit really well. Once again, I have brought out these amazing white sandals which were definitely my go-to footwear last summer. I raved about them in this blog post and I definitely love them just as much now!

I hope you are all having a fantastic week!
