C&D

Posted in There's {a} Way

Hello lovelies! Happy Monday! I had such an amazing weekend attending my first British wedding as an actual invited guest!  The Royal Wedding doesn’t count (or so my husband says). It was one of the most beautiful and love-filled occasions with some of the most heartfelt and genuine speeches given by the bride’s father, her godfather, the best man and the groom. Living overseas away from family means that the friends you make become your support network and act as your surrogate family.  We are so lucky to have been welcomed in so warmly by not only these two special friends, but their families as well.  The groom’s father remarked to my husband at the reception, “You’re one of the family now!” which he may live to regret some day, as I then shuffled up with a glow stick down my dress illuminating my chest and holding out my finger saying, “Elliot, Elliot….. ouch”, but we could not be more honoured.  Cheers to the happy couple!

Guernsey

Posted in There's {a} Way

Hi lovelies! Happy Friday! Today I have jetted out of London again for another wedding… the fourth one in the past two months!! This one takes me to a quaint little port town on the UK Channel Island Guernsey, which is right off the coast of France. I am so excited to head out and explore and get a feel for the place.  I opted for something comfortable for the flight over with loose fitting cotton trousers and a simple white t-shirt.  An easy way to smarten up a casual ensemble is to add a blazer, something every woman should have in her closet. It is one of the most versatile pieces that I always reach for when going for a “borrowed from the boys” meets classic and tailored lady.  A great pair of heels and a few accessories help to personalise the look. Hope you have a great weekend!  Looking forward to sharing my outfit for the wedding next week! I will be channeling my inner Kate Middleton.  Cheers!
