No, I didn’t get married. Or, rather, not recently. But I did go to a wedding the last weekend, and I’ve got the fancied-up OOTD photos to prove it.

With sensible wrap/scarf (which I didn’t wear, because the venue was hot, hot, hot)

It was fun. I say that as someone who typically hates weddings. The bride looked lovely, and together with her new husband, very happy. More importantly for my selfish purposes, they threw a nice shindig. I especially appreciated the fact that it was a kid-free wedding. This, on one hand, makes the logistics of attendance a wee bit more difficult; but, once that’s all sorted, the actual event is infinitely more fun. Don’t get me wrong: I love my kids, and spending time with them is always generally a blast. However, keeping two little ones in check for the duration of a sit-down plated dinner isn’t really my idea of a good time. Especially whilst wearing a fancy frock. Which I rarely get to do. Or whilst attempting to catch up with friends I haven’t seen in years. Which, obviously, I rarely get to do. So hurrah for kid-free weddings!

  1. That dress looks completely amazing on you! I remember seeing that and thinking it was really pretty, but never getting it because my Target didn’t have my size left 🙁

    • You can find lots on eBay for really cheap! I would definitely recommend it for the price ($20-$30) – it has a lot of little details that you would normally only find in more expensive brands. Plus, the main fabric is a cotton-silk blend (if I recall correctly), which is pretty incredible for a Target piece. It has a lining AND tulle! Can you tell I’m a fan? 😉

  2. Lovely outfit! That colour – especially in the wrap – really suits you! Also, did you help design the wedding centrepieces? 😉
