Summer Bridesmaid Hairspiration

You know me, I’m no wallflower, so when Claire’s asked me if I’d like to play dress up using some of their brightest of the bright brand new hair adornments, I really couldn’t say no. When that trademark lilac packaging landed on my doorstep and I tore into it, I was greeted with so many pretty florals and bright colours that it instantly lifted my hump day mood. I immediately started thinking of ways I could dress them up, bridesmaid’s style!

So, on a slightly damp Tuesday afternoon, Shell and Elbie jumped on a train bound for Reading and we brought our own kind of sunshine to the proceedings! This was such a fun project, and from Shell’s amazing photographs you’d never tell we shot these in my (definitely not very glamorous) kitchen and back garden!

This was probably my favourite look of the entire shoot. As Elbie was doing my hair and make up, my long-suffering ASOS delivery man (I swear he judges me more and more each time he hands something over) showed up with my latest purchase. I hadn’t planned it but it just happened to perfectly match the coral and pink version of this flower crown. Talk about photo shoot serendipity!

Claire’s actually sent me two of these crowns so I thought it would be fun to double them up and create an all-over flower look. It reminds me of a vintage swimming hat or something!

Just one flower crown wasn’t enough for me though, I also nabbed myself the purple and blue version too, isn’t it pretty?
