When I’m in a restaurant I often find myself incapable of making a decision. If someone asks me what I’m having I’ll usually have an idea of two or three potentials, but choosing is nigh impossible. So I wait until the waitress comes and literally let my choice pop out of my mouth. Sometimes it’s something so unexpected, it didn’t even make it onto my shortlist! I’m always satisfied with my meal though!
The same pattern applies to my outfit choices when it comes to occasion dressing. I have had one outfit in mind for Kristelle and Dale’s wedding since March now. On Friday it was so warm I began to wonder whether I might need to wear an alternative, lighter-weight dress. I tried both on, was satisfied with neither and ended up packing a third option. Which is what I ended up wearing.
You probably recognise this dress from the last two weddings I attended, although I’ve tried to give it a bit of a twist this time. I’ve replaced the wide lilac sash with a narrower green satin one, and sewed a black satin sash to the neckline to create a halterneck. And I still took my straw hat, although it was far too warm to wear it!
Ok, on to the wedding. I could tell you all about how lovely it was, how beautiful the bride looked (seriously beautiful, by the way – the four sisters in the Spelman clan are just stunning and Krissie was especially glowing and happy and radiant, as you’d expect) and how much fun the lanterns were… or I could just leave you with some pictures. And I know how much y’all like pictures…
