Lydia Tomlinson’s Three Pairs Of Shoes From Dune For Wedding Season

Although the depths of winter seem to drag by like a never-ending cardio session (the horror!), it still comes as a shock when it rolls into that time of year again – wedding season! Ah, the beautiful sound of bells ringing, the smell of love in the air… And the crashing realisation that you’ve exhausted your trusty pair of nude strappy sandals from last year. In fact, you even think the strap might have broken off after one too many spins to ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’ at your cousin’s wedding last August… Uh oh!

While feelings of joy spread may over you as you open the crisp white envelope of your best friend’s wedding invite, it soon develops into panic when it’s two weeks before the big day and your wardrobe seems to be your worst enemy.

Lydia’s suit can be bought here:

Jacket £70 at Native Youth

Trousers £45 at Native Youth

So, that’s where CollectPlus comes in. The saviour, the light at the end of the tunnel! Simply choose from one of CollectPlus’s many retailers and place your order to your nearest location. Yes, it really is that easy. It saves you the hassle of rearranging deliveries, of the awkward conversation picking your parcel up from the neighbour (again!) and the disappointment when you realise you’re about ten miles away from the parcel depot with no free time to pick it up (it happens to the best of us, really).

Lydia’s nude slip can be bought at Miss Selfridge for £35

With their collection points open from early ‘till late, CollectPlus is the solution to all your delivery woes! Bob in before work or after a Friday night trip to the takeaway and save all the unnecessary stress you usually have with online orders!

Okay so that’s the easy part solved, but let’s talk about your wedding footwear problems! Dune is here to put an end to your issues with three pairs of shoes to suit every style…

DAENA SUEDE POINTED SLING BACK SHOE £64

Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the prettiest sling-back of them all? Made in the most delicate shade of blush pink (and black if you’re daring!), the Daena Suede Sling Back is the ultimate occasion heel. Demure enough to see you through formal ceremonies, fun enough to glide you straight to the dance floor, they’re a shoe to cover all bases.

The pointy toe and buckle detail on the Daena have revamped the traditional kitten heel and given it a modern, cool-girl twist. Style with cream, culotte trousers right through to pretty, floral midi dresses.

Lydia’s bag can be bought for £25 at ASOS

The beauty of this shoe is that its design is unique enough to make them the focal point of the outfit, but the soft blush shade also means they can fit in with every look. If you’ve got a pile of wedding invitations lined up on your mantel piece, this is this style for you!

MAKEOVER HIGH LEATHER SANDAL £56

Offering an alternative to the feminine wedding heel, the Makeover High Leather Sandal is every stiletto lovers dream. The peep toe and ankle strap bring them right into spring, and if you’re not one for softer, pastel shades then the brown injects a bit of boldness without having to reach for black.

You can get Lydia’s blazer for £55 at Miss Selfridge

Brown polka dots would be the perfect match for these elegant heels, but equally go bold and partner the brown shade with a brighter colour. Whether you’re a guest of a guest, or the bride’s bestie, these shoes will make you stand tall and give you that kick of confidence that’ll have you socialising all through the night.

ISOBELA HIGH BLOCK HEEL SANDAL £60

Comfort needed’t be a dirty word, especially when it comes to heels as chic as these. Last from dawn ‘till dusk in Dune’s Isobela High Block Heel Sandals and out-jive all the John Travoltas on the dance floor.

The block heel of these sandals are prefect for that marquee wedding when terrain can be uneven and stilettos just won’t cut it. Opt for the modern block heel instead and style with a calf-length, floaty midi skirt and blazer.

In soft grey, these are the shoes that you’ll be reaching to time and time again. Your fail-safes and your fool-proofs, never miss a beat on the dance floor or a photo opportunity on the lawn in these beauties!
