Hi Guys, Well I am back from the most amazing time at my Friends Nick and Catherine's Wedding in Lindos in Rhodes. It was the most perfect day, honestly Mama Mia had nothing on this wedding! A ceremony by the beach, a boat ride a banana boat and a Greek BBQ= Epic!
I will get to the most important bit the beautiful bride in a sec, but first just wanted to share with you my outfit for the day. 
I can not explain how hot it was throughout the day, it was at least 42 degree's so it was far to say that wearing something cool was the key to the look. I had always known I wanted to wear a swing dress to help with the heat, but had been struggling to find the right one, but when I saw this metallic number in Forever 21 knew it was the dress! 
I loved the flapper shape to it and with all the Great Gatsby trends that will be everywhere this Autumn/Winter I thought I would be a great transitional piece.And I loved the metallic colour, the sun hit of it really well. As the dress was so simple I teamed it with quite bold accessories and my fav big grey clutch.I decided to go full on and wear full metallic, but if you want to tone it down then just wear one piece to bring your look up to date.  (As you will see from the evening pics, I had to admit defeat and put my hair up to avoid the frizz!)
I hope you like my look and it gives you idea's of you are going to a wedding aboard this summer.
Now, here are some pics of the gorgeous location and stunning couple. 

How stunning does Catherine look? Her dress was perfect for the day, it was not a big fussy wide dress, it was just elegant and classic. 
I loved the fact that it was not just a strapless typical style  ( which don't get me wrong I do love too) but for this type of wedding in the sun it was so lovely to wear something different, A really beautiful bride. 
And the location was un-real, everywhere you look was like a postcard, if you have never been to Greece I can not advise you enough to go! 

 I hope you are all ready for the weekend? I am still trying to catch up on being away with loads of emails to get back to and things to do. But I am heading out with some friends for dinner tomorrow night so that will be great.

Happy Weekend!
