A couple weekends ago I attended my first wedding of the season. My friends Alasdair and Georgina were tying the knot, so that was my excuse to don a nice dress and get glammed up. I bought this blue strapless number from a Monsoon sale a couple years ago. I loved it but, after having my 2nd child it no longer fit (I put weight on my BACK – who does that?). However, due to all my training for the impending 10K run (see previous post) the back fat disappeared , so to celebrate, I chose to wear this dress.
As much as I like this dress, though, it does have a feint whiff of bridesmaid about it, (and part of the bridal party I was not!) so I dressed it down with a vintage belt, my orange New Look shoes and my favourite thrifted necklace.
The result? No one mistook me for a bridesmaid, yay! And I didn’t have to splash out on a new dress, double yay! Roll on the next set of nuptials…
Are you off to any weddings this summer? Do you have your outfit sorted?
Bye for now
