It’s a Wrap

Bluebell Jacket

With temperatures taking a nose dive it’s time to think about bridal wraps!  Seeing a bride in a sleeveless dress in winter makes me feel cold – it’s like babies in strollers in with no blanket and no socks – hard to believe but it happens!
So I was delighted to see this very cute selection of bridal wraps on BHLDN  –  check them out herenot a gothic cloak in sight!

As I mentioned on an earlier post, our second baby – little Rachel  – was born on September 11th and I now need to get some birth announcements printed – what’s that saying about the shoemakers children….  Anyway a couple of days after she came home I took lots photos of her (the image above is not Rachel) as the first couple of weeks they sleep so much you can snap all you like and they’ll happily pose for you.  So when I came across this tutorial on Inspire Me Baby I got some really good tips and think I will have to take some more photos – check it out and see what you think…

We weren’t expecting to find Wedding Dress inspiration from the Ralph Lauren Spring / Summer 2012 Collection, but we did!  With a nod to flappers and the roaring twenties some of the stand out dresses from the collection would be perfect for a Great Gatsby themed Wedding.
See the entire range here.
