I'm back from the UK

Folks, I am back from my visit to the UK which happily coincided with the beginning of a rare heatwave, in fact I think it is currently hotter in the UK than it is in Hong Kong.  It has taken me a week to get over the jetlag this time for some reason (increasing age no doubt).

I'm catching up with literally hundreds of blog posts, still have a few things I need to write posts for and I've started a new dress, but in the meantime here are some photos from the sunny Sussex wedding.  Before the wedding I was visiting friends and family in the sticks so it turned out my accessories purchasing options were pretty limited, but I did manage a fascinator and some earrings.  In the end despite my reservations about the pale colour it was just the thing for a hot sunny day.



These "hedge people" were walking around during the reception, I'd never seen anything like it before, potentially nightmare inducing, but I thought they were brilliant.

  10. Allison, so happy you are back! I missed you! And, look how good the outfit looks against all that green, fabulous!

    Perso, I find the topiary people deeply disturbing. Was it a landscape architect getting married or something?

  23. I do think the colour is lovely. Not too light for you and the 'hat' and earings were perfect to show off the lace and outfit.

    .... I keep looking for Dr Who with those hedge people! Poor dog is making a run for it. Or an amble for it!
