I will get some better photos at the wedding, I just snapped these really quick in the midst of packing, but here's where I'm at...
- I shortened the peplum by a few cms. I would still like to do something with the neck/sleeves, but this is just more work than I have time for right now. Special mention to The Overflowing Stash who even shortened my peplum by photoshop!
- I heard you all on the shoes - I knew they weren't right, but I was trying to get away with not packing many pairs and also there is supposed to be lawn croquet at the wedding and prior experience tells me that heels and grass are a bad combination. I went for a strappy nude sandal that has a heel that will indeed sink into the grass - I'll just have to either duck out of the croquet or play barefoot! No doubt it will rain and get cancelled anyway so it seems silly to compromise the whole outfit for it and these are shoes I know I will wear many times.
- I really struggled to find a belt I liked so I got some black grosgrain ribbon, a bit wider than the leather belt I was wearing before.
- I do like the idea of adding a pop of colour, but really wasn't able to find a good combination of accessories that worked together. I picked up some coloured ribbon and flowers and will have a look when I am in the UK too so I haven't given up on this idea yet. Still need to get some jewellery too.
|Shoes, nude bag that I already owned which will work if I can't find something new (I also have a black satin bag that I might throw in the case too) and random assortment of flowers and ribbon|
These are terrible photos hurriedly taken while packing, but hopefully you get the idea.
Below right is the pre hack version for comparison. If you think it looked better before please don't tell me!
