The Sunday R&R

Hello and Happy Sunday!  How is September going for you so far?    With the kids back at school and the summer ending, September can be a great time for change and to catch up on how the year is going, and write up those to do lists.

But before you get to that I hope that you have some time off today and don’t forget to come back next week as we have real weddings, treehouse wedding inspiration, travel and wanderlust inspiration on the French Riviera, plus flowers and beauty tutorials.

Have a great Sunday!

We started off the week with a real wedding at Chateau de la Messardiere with photography by Christopher Serrano – see full wedding here

Etsy Finds

Our Etsy finds this week are inspired by hats and hair accessories.  I have never been a hat person really, but in the last year I am coming to LOVE hats and hair accessories and here are some of my favourite.

This custom floppy sun hat would be the perfect prop for those honeymoon selfies! Available here from Shades of Pink £19.29.

just married hatI am rather jealous of the wonderful millinery industry and the fabulous pieces that they create for brides, compared to when I got married 8.5 years ago.  This one from BeChic Accessories is adorable and chic, £130.37.

Bridal Millinery Hat with birdcageAnd not forgetting the wedding guests!  I am loving the shape, form and fluiditiy of this wonderful piece by Tracey Chaplin Milliner £475.
