Oh my goodness. Happy Monday everyone. This is going to be short and sweet. We were gone all day yesterday for a couple of events, including a wedding. The wedding was gorgeous. I am very, very happy for my two friends who have found true love a second time around. And thanks to the bride’s creative genius, I was able to steal this idea for Belle Fille’s wedding next Saturday:
Isn’t that just super cool? The whole reception was cool because it was held in a gorgeously renovated barn. Rustic elegance. I like it.
I only have one picture of what I wore. OK, well there are a couple of group shots but this is the only one of just moi. Master Bliss caught me just as I was going into a blink but otherwise it’s all right. Frankly, it will have to do because I am too tired…and already in my PJS…to go upstairs for a “bathroom photo shoot”. Let me just say, I was in this outfit from 8:30 AM until about 10:45 PM. The shoes, my friends, were AMAZINGLY comfortable. They have now been thoroughly tested for the wedding day and my feet are so happy.
This dress I have had for a number of years…I own it in red and black. I paired it with my “new to me” scarf which I love–and which is an early anniversary gift from Master Bliss…the best hubby ever! Merci, Aesthetic Alterations for making it possible. I must have worn the scarf 4 different ways through out the day. At first it was in a cross-tie, then it was worn as a shawl, followed by knotted around my neck (until I thought my head was going to blow at the very warm wedding ceremony–someone finally put on the air before the wedding started–MERCI.), and then knotted loosely in a low hang (does that make sense?). And how in the world did I forget to wear my handbag in this shot?? In case you are wondering, I wore the “Hermes/Chanel Love Child” vintage green bag. So here’s the knotted at neck/going to a wedding look:
(dress~~Talbots; scarf~~Hermes; shoes~~Clarks)
I am off to bed as soon as I hit publish. Please check out the other ladies today on Visible Monday. You never know the inspiration you will find at Not Dead Yet Style.
P.S. I can’t wait for our wedding to be over just to get something done with this hair. What, I do not know but something WILL be done.
