plus size print dress -2

You all know that it rained here for about two weeks straight, right? Well, in the middle fo all that there was a wedding. A beachside wedding. A wedding that was moved indoors because of sideways crazy-ass rain! My cousin’s wedding. She married her partner of ten years in a small ceremony. It was perfect.

Don’t you think that things like that are sent to remind us that marriage never goes your way all the time? That it’s a preparation of sorts to learn to be flexible and open to change and compromise? I do. I think that’s why it’s such good luck to have it rain on your wedding day. You get the lesson long before the rest of us do.

But what does one wear to such an event? At the last minute, I changed my mind from the outfit I had planned to this one I borrowed from fellow Queenslander Christine of the CC Bloom Blog. Both from ASOS they are a perfect combination fo stylish and simple. And the print of the dress just happened to work with my ankle boots which was an important advantage after I’d ditched my heels out of fear of an ankle injury or faceplant.

There’s something perfect about a printed, simple dress for a wedding right? And would you look at that, no black! Go me.

    Beautiful! Loving the print on the dress and go you not wearing any black! Did it feel strange not to be wearing black or freeing!? Either way you looked lovely and I reckon this would be something I would wear myself! =)

      You look beautiful, you are also one inspiring lady !!

    • Thanks Mel. This print is really something special. And I know right? It’s weird looking at it now, but I didn’t even think about it at the time. VERY unusual but it feels like a very ‘me’ outfit in spite of that.

  • I wish I had this outfit! Looks amazing x 🙂

  • This dress is stunning. Totally love the print.
    Really suits you.

    I think I ran into you in the lifts as I was on my way to another wedding that very rainy day. I had thought you looked familiar, now I know why! Bloody rain was unbelievable!
