Spring Wedding Guest Outfit: New Look Lace Panel Wrap Dress And MAC Lady Danger Lipstick!

Hi loves,

I hope you're all really well and enjoying the spring weather!

I recently attended the wedding of two of my close friends in Bournemouth and I loved getting dressed up for the very special occasion. 

Here's what I wore...

Dress - New Look (O/S but some sizes available on Zalando)
Heels - (O/S but similar styles available on ASOS and New Look)

I was really pleased with how this dress fitted - although I had to pin it around the bust area (story of my life) as it was VERY booby. Bust-aside, the material of the dress was almost crepe-like and felt very comfortable when it was on. Plus it allowed me to graze on the wedding buffet with ease thanks to the flattering/forgiving wrap design! Also, the shoulders, sleeves and back of the dress were made of a floral lace pattern which I thought added a really pretty touch.

I thought the gold heels added a bit of pizzazz to my outfit - you can't see in the pic but I've got some sparkly earrings on too. The shoes were also really comfortable - the heel itself was tiny (a really small box heel) so it meant I could hit the dance floor with no worries. Are you sending a theme here? I'm all about the comfort these days... #granny

Make-up wise, I went for a bold lip and lots of bronzer...

FACE: Benefit That Gal Primer all over face as base, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in #1 under eyes, MAC Studio Finish Concealer on spots/blemishes, Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation buffed in with Real Techniques Buffing Brush, Bare Minerals Pressed Powder for shine, Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Clinique Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator in 02 Peach to highlight, Urban Decay V6 Spray to set.

EYES: Urban Decay e/s Primer Potion, Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette (shades Naked, Buck and Smog), L'Oreal Super Liner Black Lacquer, Benefit They're Real mascara.

EYEBROWS: Filled in with MAC Omega and Charcoal Brown e/s, using MAC 208 Brush. Set using No7 Brow Gel.

LIPS: LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub and Dr Organic Organic Coconut Oil Lip Balm (LOVE THIS) to prep lips, filled in with Urban Decay Lip Liner in Bang, MAC Lady Danger Lipstick.

HAIR: I curled my hair using the original GHD straightening irons, tied it up in a bun while I did my make-up, brushed the curls through and then sprayed my hair all over with L'Oreal Very Volume hairspray. I added a little bit of Paul Mitchell Super Skinny serum to the ends because they were a bit frizzy.

Oh and if you're wondering if that golden glow is natural, I can assure you it's completely fake and you can't quite see from the pics but it's really patchy too! I used the Garnier mist and made a right mess with it - I had patches all over my arms, body and legs! My boyfriend had to fill in all the white patches with instant tan a few hours before the wedding. Total disaster. The truth behind the glossy Insta pics, eh!

What's your wedding guest style inspo?
