This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀

This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

Yay or Nay | Two Nicole Kidman Dresses

Have you ever looked at a dress and cannot decide whether you like it or not? Yeah, that is how I feel with these two Nicole Kidman dresses – can’t decide whether it’s a yay or nay.

If only I could be a beautiful movie star and wear couture all day long. I could be lounging on my sofa eating domino in a beautiful lilac Ellie Saab gown, kind of like that scene from Friends where the girls were drinking beers in wedding dresses. All dressed up and nowhere to go.

Sadly, I’m not an Oscar-winning movie star, I’m just a very poor blogger. So all I can do is just spend my days looking at all the real beautiful movie stars – such as Nicole Kidmen for example.

I haven’t really talked about my celebrity’s worship syndrome – yes it a real syndrome – on here. But basically, for those who know me – will know I suffer terribly with this. I love browsing celebrity’s blogs, watching E news (yes I know, but it such a guilty pleasure!) and browsing red carpet pictures on Getty.

Anyway, one particularly set of red carpet photos that caught my eyes is one from Nicole Kidmen. She’s one of my favorite actress and I just love her down to earth attitude. However, I sometime feel her fashion style leave me puzzled.

In the sense that often she can dress very elegantly and sophisticated, especially at an award show. But other time I find myself yelling at the screen – what the hell is that?

Which bring me to my overall point – here are two Nicole Kidmen dresses that she wore at a red carpet event recently, I just can’t decide whether I like them or not.

So Folks, I was wondering what is your take on these two dresses?

Dress 1

This gown is from Carolina Herrera, one of my favorite designer. Now, the problem is – I can’t decide whether I like it or not. As at first glance it looks beautiful with the full blue bodice and pink sleeves, and the embroidered (and we all know how I feel about embroidered ensemble!) flowers. But then you look closely and it just look…fussy. I can’t decide if it there too much embroidered flowers on the dress or the sleeve look completely out of place. I think from afar the dress look beautiful – it only when you look closely you’ll see there something not right. So yay or nay?

Dress 2

For this one, I don’t know who the designer is – but at first glance it looks like something you wear round Halloween. But again, I took a closer look and I kind of like it. I mean I like the lilac netting bodice lace and the free flowing sleeves and high turtle neckline. But the deal breaker is the black embroidery, it just makes the dress look like it covered in spiders and cobwebs – hence why I thought it was a Halloween dress. So yay or nay?

Those are my two Nicole Kidmen dresses. Here a quick fun quiz for you: if you were invited to the Oscars – but you could only wear either of those two dresses; which one would you choose.

I will leave you to ponder on this in the comments box.

    I really love both dresses! The second one even a little bit more 🙂

    I love the first dress (apart from those pinks frills on her wrists) – not so sure on the second dress tbh!

    Hi Anna,
    They are both gorgeous! I love the detail on the cuffs of the diaphanous sleeves of the 1st one. So delicate!

    My honest opinion is I hate them. The second one especially just looked too big and with a body like that when you can wear anything. I’ve never seen Nicole look that bad honestly and she is such a beautiful woman.

    I wish the floral dress didn’t have those fussy sleeves! I would have to go with the purple dress if they were my only options!

    I’d choose the first one! 🙂

  • I’m not really digging these dresses. They both have some nice things that I like. I just don’t like the design of them. If they removed the sleeves from the first one I would like it WAY more. I don’t like the design on the top of the dress on the purple one. I don’t mind the fabric. If I had to wear one…I would pick #1 if it were spring time and #2 if it was in the fall 😉

    Omg I love her. and her choice of dresses is eyecatching! Both of them are beautiful, but I personally really like the first one. I would want to wear that one, more of a cute and lovely look! http://www.clairebearblogs.com

    I love the first dress it’s so vintage and chic

  • Nicole

    Dress 1 I like except the sleeves. They do nothing for me and I find the ends to be very distracting and unnecessary. Dress 2) undecided. At first glance I love it but then it looks a little too busy with the dark flowers on lace🤔 Just my humble opinion

    I prefer the first dress but I’m not sure on the sleeves, I think perhaps they were a step too far.
    I also suffer with celebrity worship syndrome!

    honestly its a nay for me….I’m just not feeling the dresses

    I like the first dress even thought floral dresses is not my style. But again, it’s a beautiful dress from a great designer.

    I prefer the first dress, for sure! I love floral everything, and I actually really think the sleeves are cute. I’m all about having unique pieces!

    Both dresses are beautiful, but I would definitely choose the first dress!

    OhhI quite like the top one although not keen on the net sleeves, really like the colour of the purple one but not so keen on the overall look. Thanks for linking up #bestandworst

    I like the first dress 🙂 I think it’s pretty and the long sleeves give it playful tones 🙂 The other one though…. Not my favorite.

    Oh I did not like any of those dresses that Nicole wore!!! What was she thinking??!!! They age her dramatically and not fit in with the Hollywood glamour. I love Nicole and this time, she did not do good.

    I love the first one but not so much the second one. However, I do not see myself wearing either but that first one is pretty cute♥

    I’m not keen on either to be honest! I would wear dress one but take the sleeves off, I think it would look so much better without those weird sleeves and cuffs! #bestandworst

    I love the 1st one more !!! Love its cuts and fit
