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.

Your outfit looks just right in this setting against all that green..speaking of which what was the point of the green people? Enough to scare one witless!

Fran said...

That last photo with the dog -- that poor animal! Thanks for the laugh this morning.

You look great, as usual. The fascinator is very cute!

your outfit worked out perfectly, lovely. And I almost wish the fascinator thing would catch on here. Those hedge people seem like the stuff of nightmares. weird and funny. Plus I bet they were sweltering.

Lurv your outfit. Love the accessories. I think the hedge people would terrify me. But, the photos are really cute :D

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?

Shar said...

You look gorgeous! The black belt and fascinator are the perfect accents. I agree with Beth - I wish fascinators would become fashionable here. The hedge people would terrify me!

I'm so glad your outfit worked out! The fascinator is certainly the crowning glory to your ensemble and it all looks great.

Your outfit looks great - and those hedge people are a hoot. It looks like one of them is walking that dog!

Tia Dia said...

You look cool and very elegant in your ensemble. The lace is so lovely.

The Slapdash Sewist said...

Agh, those hedge people are terrifying!

The outfit turned out gorgeous! I hope you didn't upstage the bride. `-)

Emily said...

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!
