Communion or confirmation outfit ideas

 Hey Ladies
So I had a lot of private messages from you guys looking for this post.
Communion and Confirmation is tricky for outfits, as even though the day is all about your child, you still want to look nice for your child's big day, not to mention the photos that will be there long after the day is over!!
For me, I think its important to look dressy, yet not look too "over the top". Its also good to purchase something that you will wear again. Whether its a coat you can wear time and time again, a top/skirt/trousers for a night out or dinner, something you can pull out of the wardrobe for another event.
Not only that, you want a look that is Elegant, Classy and demur!
I love this look, the blush colour is always romantic I think and soft, the nude and white coat is lavish Alice one of my favourite labels its €115.08 and you can purchase here, Nude heels are Littlewoods, €24.99 available here, Top as before Chicwish, €36.29, available here, beige leather skirt €29.95 from Zara here .
Black and White is always a good combo, this look is chic, Tailored and elegant, and something you will wear again ...The Cape is Lavish Alice and €74.14 available here, Tailored Jumpsuit is  Asos €70.42, available here, Patent black heels €60 available at River Island in stores and here.
Again more blush pinks, only as this colour is huge for spring/summer, dress is available in Love Cherish Boutique here or here  €80.60, Zara White Frock Coat €59.95 available here & strappy sandals €49.95 available here 
Girls this dress in the picture does not do it justice, I've seen this in person and the colours are divine, its a gorgeous dress and you don't necessary have to wear a white blazer with it, but you could wear a blush pink/beige or navy blazer/coat with it, its beautiful.. I just kept the colours neutral as the dress is colourful. Dress & Heels are both Zara. Dress is €49.95 here Sand wrap around sandals €49.95 available here (Navy heels would go with this too!). White cape €76.05 available here, navy version too here.
Again another dress from Zara (they really have some fab dressy stuff at the moment) its fab on and is €59.95 available here, Coat €89.95 and Bag €39.95 are Zara here & here. Shoes River Island €87 here
Blush dresses are everywhere this one is fab from Zara along with the coat and the dress is €59.95 available here. Coat €79.95 available here, Bag River Island €25 available here, New Look strappy heels €49.95 available in store and here.
For those who would like something unusual but yet still classy, this tailored cape Jumpsuit from Lavish Alive is beautiful €74.34 and available here, Bag is New Look €14.99 available here, Strappy heels €55 available in store and here
Another simple look and quiet striking, all it would need is a little black blazer thrown over it...Lace blouse is Zara €29.95 available here, River Island Fringe Stiletto Heels €77 here, Fold over Cream bag €15, Skirt River Island here 

Still sticking with monochrome and navy & white...I popped this jacket on my facebook page the other day and I love it, its so nice on and I loved the ruched sleeves, its from River Island €80 available in store and here, navy leather block skirt €43 available here, Navy heels Zara €49.95 available in store and here, White Camisole River Island €22 available here.
This dress has to be my ultimate favourite I absolutely love it...its available at Love Cherish Boutique details here and Bella Dungarvan contact details here, It is so demur and just gorgeous, Shoes are from Littlewoods €24.99 as before and the clutch is €28.13 available from Asos here
  Like this colour palette outfit white and grey this dress is quiet cute...Dress is from €80.60 available here, Long white blazer €69.95 from Zara available in store or online here. Grey strappy heels New Look €29.99 available here.
Both these dresses are Little Mistress and are €83.60, you can purchase these here and here. New Look strapy heels €44.99 available here. Silver heels New Look available in store and here reduced to €17 so grab a bargain quick. 
Love this dress..its from Verso and available here €89, This is gorgeous and a black blazer over it would be perfect too...

So the lovely ladies who had requested this post I hope this helps you and you are armed with an idea of what to wear...either way have a ball and enjoy the day, you ll look fabulous!
