(Outfit Diary) La Playa

March 2, 2012

Dress via Bellissima, J. Crew heels, Aldo bracelets

I was supposed to going to a beach wedding this spring. I'm not really a beach girl - sand is messy, bikinis make me uncomfortable and, well, I could go on but I think you can all already see that I'm totally neurotic. But I was excited about finding the perfect beach wedding dress.

The wedding will now be taking place in Winnipeg, so I'll be wearing a dress from my already extensive collection - and probably a sweater. But if I were going to a beach wedding, this beautiful dress from Bellissima is exactly what I would want to wear - the colours caught my eye immediately. I just can't resist aqua this spring!

I'm feeling a bit under the weather, so I'm planning to spend a very quiet weekend wrapped up in blankets with a stack of pillows and my browser open to vintage clothes on eBay. Happy Friday, lovely ladies!

Oh, and the lovely Kate over at Petite Adventures featured me in her Style Profile this week - stop by and say hello!

  2. Aww feel better! Lots of tea and rest will help for sure. I really love this dress, perfect for a beach day with the print and colours. You look really great here, with your hair all beachy too! Why can't it be summer right now?!

  3. Well you may not love the beach, but you look breathtakingly elegant & beach ready here!! That dress is a stunner! I actually don't mind the beach, where Martin & I live we have some stunning secluded area's. I usually sit under a large umbrella, sip white wine and eat delicious snacks!! Ok, now I'm officially missing summer! ;)

    Aw, hope you feel better Cee there's been a nasty bug going around. Both Martin & I are getting sick too. Hope you get lots of foot rubs from your man, and I'm off to check out your feature, yay! xo

  9. Is it that warm there?!! I'm jealous. This is the perfect beach dress and with the crimped mermaid hair - stunner. I love sandy beaches but I think they're best when it's cold out and there's less people around. Feel better Cee!! Drink some chocolat chaud: antioxidants ;)

  18. Oh no, well if it makes you feel any better I spent all of last night throwing up and shaking and am still not feeling much better today. There's definitely been something going around. Anyway, if you were slightly under the weather when you took these pics, I would have never known - you look stunning! I love those colours on you, and seriously it is the PERFECT beach wedding dress. But also perfect whenever - can't wait to see how you style it next. Hope you're feeling better my lovely pal!

  21. Cee first of all thank you for all your lovely blog comments whilst I was travelling. I love feeling connected to my readers and it was so great to read your thoughts whilst I was away. Second and most importantly this post is timely for me, I also have a beach wedding next year, and my friend just asked me to read, so I must stand in front of everyone on the beach and eek I'm already thinking about my outfit! I'm taking some tips from you here - love the colours in this dress, the blue suits your skin tone perfectly.

  23. Hi sweetie,

    I loooooove the outfit! The aqua/blue dress with the metallic details and the SHOES!! (imagine me gushing, I absolutely love them!)

    You look fabulous, the hair and makeup is appropriate to the dress. I'm so happy that you didn't overaccessorize (even though that's not your thing, but still).

    Hmm. Have a great Monday.
    Hope you're feeling better.

    Kisses!

  24. Oh no I hope you're feeling better by now! You do look great in these pictures though (love the colors of the dress!), you almost make it seem like it's really finally time to wear summer outfits ;-) And these beachy waves look AWESOME, I think you should wear your hair like this more often.

    Happy Monday! xo Leonie
