How to feel ethereal*

I've seen those cute romantic - tumblr I think - collages about on Pinterest... 'things to do on a lonely weekend ' and 'how to feel ethereal', I thought it was really cute and wanted to make my own version. In collaboration with AW Bridal UK, I put together a few pieces to create an ethereal daytime look that will be perfect for any summer occasions, swanning about the streets on warm days, or even something princessy to have on the door of your wardrobe. Just complete look with said accessories and glowy, gossamer-like skin aka lots of care and muchas highlighter... read my exact beauty secrets post here!

1. In love blush floral lace up maxi dress - from Lulus bridesmaid, this dress is gorgeous, floral, floaty and romantic. Really pretty and relaxed boho vibes, perfect for taking on holiday, wearing casually or donning for an occasion, perfect for looking 'put together', wherever you are.

2. Alexine pearly headband - from AW Bridal UK, I really love these gorgeous headbands that fasten with ribbons, they are so dreamy. You don't even need to wait for a special occasion to don a bit of head jewellery, try channelling romantic, boho vibes and pair with partially sheer skirts and braids, Vanessa Hudgens-esque.

3. Long hair pack hair mask - from ASOS, but there are a billion hair masks out there I want to try. I really want to take care of and nourish my hair this summer. Whip it up in to a mask whenever I am lounging, doing chores, or spending time at home aka all the time, yes hair! I want to keep it super moisturised, deeply nourished, extremely soft and steeped in protective and nourishing oils for as much time as I can and really care for my ends, protect them from the elements.

4. Lollia 'At Last' fragrance - from Fragrance.net, a dreamy blend of powdery rice flower, Southern Magnolias paired with demure Mimosa. I've wanted to try this perfume for some time. I think the brand and bottle are so beautiful, I love the concept too. I think it is such a happy thing when a fragrance can delight both the senses, sight and smell together I wouldn't try to taste it or hear it either. This looks so precious. The Lavender and Honey scent they do sounds incredible too.

5. Rosina lace top long dress - from AW Bridal UK, this dress is goddess like, it falls beautifully and I love the halterneck design. They also feature dresses from Kennedy Blue - designer brand and have a great selection of AW dresses for bridesmaids UK if you have an extra special occasion or two to plan or attend this summer yes barbecues count.

6. Peggy pearly butterfly floral hair comb - from AW Bridal UK, this is such a dreamy and beautiful piece that reminds me of the hair comb in Titanic and something my crazy Edwardian fashion loving self would love. I just think this would look so pretty in any hairstyle.

7. Cirrus leaf headband - from AW Bridal UK, another piece of head jewellery I am basically in love with, I think it is my thing this summer. Remember back in about 2013 when everyone used to wear flower crowns? These are the new next best thing, flower crowns upgraded, 2.0.

8. Susannah Vneck spaghetti straps maxi dress - from AW Bridal UK, I love the bodice and sweetheart neckline and such a beautiful colour. I would definitely pull together some boho touches to pair with this. I'm pretty sure I'm still stuck in 2013 when everyone loved flower crowns and festival fashion... and really cute satchel bags and nope I've gone somewhere else entirely.

9. Whitney jewel neck knee length dress - from AW Bridal UK, I absolutely love the shape of this, it's gorgeous, the tulle skirt and beautiful bodice and waist create the most beautiful silhouette and flattering shape. This would make such a cute prom dress but at the same time, perfect for a summer picnic. I actually really love the burgundy shade best *shock, it's not pink*

Hopefully coming to you soon, an AW Bridal review! As soon as I find out how to actually save money and not spend it on reduced Victoria's Secret body mists in Bodycare. One might not look ethereal but one will definitely smell ethereal. PS don't forget to wear sunscreen if the sun pops out near you. And they say to wear if it's cloudy too. But, being British, our coats will probably shield us
