What do you wear to a wedding? It seems to be a topic of some debate with the Royal Wedding ready to take place later this month.

Here are some ideas if you find yourself as a wedding guest and in need of some inspiration....

If a pretty dress is your thing these are really lovely investment pieces. When i spend money on a special outfit which requires more than the usual outlay (and i have never spent this much by the way - i know some of you will be wondering!) i always make sure that the piece i buy can be worn for multiple events. This strategy lessens the guilt and i'm all for unburdening.


              Paul & Joe Swallow Printed Tea Dress       Moschino Cheap & Chic Bow Front Boucle Dress                                       £279.00 (Harrods)                                  £499.00 (Harrods)

Not having been a dress person until quite recently my favourite choice would have always been separates. I like to know i can get several outfits out of one (it's that guilt thing again) so smart white trousers and statement tops are usually a winner (although i will admit to being in something of an 'all things romantic' mood at the moment so expect to see me wafting around in Maxi's with a title of Lady Chatterley's Lover this summer!). 

Tibi Silk Crepe de Chine top - £150.00 (Net a Porter)
Delicate Donna Trousers - £87.00 (French Connection)

For a wedding or any other outing that requires a 'smart' edge or good dose of confidence boosting i like to strap on some statement shoes, probably the highest ones i can find because as my friends say, i do like to 'totter'. The strap is for safety and to avoid that awkward 'just walked out of your own shoes' moment (yes it's happened).

 Once the event has passed i would head straight for the boots - as well as tottering about i like to stomp. A hang up related to my somewhat petite stature apparently.

These are some of my favourite heels. Clockwork from top left:

Elizabeth and James Minx Platform - £375.00 (ASOS)

Miss KG Dahlia Platform Suede Shoes - £85.00 (Miss KG)

Miss KG Eve Platform Heeled Court - £75.00 (Miss KG)

Report Signature Calyer Caged Platform Court Shoes - £260.00 (ASOS)

These boots are amazing - think white trousers roughly rolled up. I could stomp all day!

Oriana Tan - £110.00 (Jones the Bootmaker) 

All that's left is a jacket or throw (or both).

Amalfi Linear Leaf Silk Print Scarf - £12.00 (Accessorize)

Extended Shoulder Leather Jacket - £250.00 (Whistles)

Leopard Print Scarf - £29.00 (East)

Love the yellow top! Wonder if they have something similar in Asda :-) You know my salary wouldn't stretch higher than that
