The Little White Dress

Between early morning meetings, my World Cup obsession, and wedding planning I recently had to find time to shop. Window shopping I'm all for, but purchase, I am always hesitant and calculated. AKA Slow.

After days of dismay looking for what I imaged as the perfect summer dress for my engagement shoot, I actually found something of a gem from the always "I'll just take a look" H&M.


The requirements were simple. 
1. White 
2. Plain and comfortable 
3. Something I can wear again easily 
4. Not too fussy

My fiance was going to wear semi casual clothing and I did not want to looked dressed up in comparison. It's all about comfort!
The fact that this beauty was on sale was just an extra check which I found out at the till. SCORE.


Quite cute details on a very simple summer dress. 
Like the little black dress that every woman should have in her closet, the little white dress which symbolizes long summer days and breezy nights is also a wardrobe staple.

I wore this very simple dress for my engagement shoot today. The double layers on the skirt offered no worries for lines, and the back has a lovely peep hole that allows ventilation but is strategically placed to not show any bra straps. Extra wins!

Though I am unable to locate this dress on the online site, I saw it just yesterday in 2 H&M's on the sale rack. 
Now is the time!

In terms of my upcoming wedding, another item has been ticked off the never ending to do list. Check!  
So satisfying to do that. 

My engagement photos were finally taken today. I believe we re scheduled 4+ times due to rain. 
FYI it rains alot here during May-June apparently!

The skies finally cleared and showed bright blue.

 
 Below is one of the backdrops we had at our shoot location.

I can't wait to see the results of our shoot.
So while I watch the last futball match of the day, it's time to tackle those wedding invitations!
