Next challenge: Looking for bridesmaids dresses

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know that I got married last year. But that doesn't mean that I never have to deal with wedding related things again, of course. A friend of mine is getting married this winter, and I am helping her plan her wedding, and I will also be a bridesmaid at her wedding. So now I am looking for bridesmaid dresses.

And wow, that is really hard! Not only do the dresses have to fit the theme of the wedding, they also have to fit a blonde (me) and three brunettes. Some of us do not want to show a lot of cleavage, others do not want to expose their knees... there are so many issues to take into consideration. And I used to think it was hard to shop for myself! It really is nothing compared to shopping for myself and three others.

But at least there are a lot of really cute bridesmaid dresses out there. So I think I should be able to find something eventually... And if nothing else, I do run into quite a lot of dresses that I can get just for myself while doing this as well!

Another pants look I love right now

... is skinny pants or jeans with polka dots on them.

Poppy Delevingne wears these beautifully:
But there are tons of colors to choose from really:

I must admit, I have not managed to find a pair of my own yet, but I am looking for a pair I love like crazy right now!

Right now I am obsessed with...

... pastel colored jeans. So much in fact that I just ordered 2 pairs:

One pair in pink...

... and one pair in turquoise.

I think these will be really great for me, since I love wearing jeans, but if you always go for blue or black ones (like I do, most of the time), your look can get a bit boring. So it is nice to be able to add something interesting to it, but changing up the colors a bit at least!

Today I'm loving...

FieldCandy's awesome tents. So much cooler than regular tents, and perfect for anyone going to a music festival for instance (something I used to love myself, but these days I feel too old for that...).

Right now I am looking for...

... some luxurious and stylish sleepwear and loungewear. This is something most people who are into fashion skimp on, I know, but I have never been able to do that, since I love being both comfortable and stylish at home as well.

At the moment I really love this Rosamosario set, but it's way more than what I usually pay for sleepwear, so I am still hesitating. But doesn't it look so cute, and so light and nice for hot summer nights?
