Hi, Everyone! I hope you all are enjoying the first week of June. We made it through the wedding weekend, and honestly, it was better than I could have ever hoped for! There was really only one snafu during the whole time, and that happened on Friday morning. My dad fell in the room where my parent’s were staying and busted his head open. He spent the day at the ER, but all ended well. They made it just in time for the rehearsal dinner! Let’s talk about this pale outfit first, then I will fill you in on the wedding.
Surprisingly, it hasn’t been too hot in Texas yet, but this blouse I am wearing is going to be on repeat for the entire summer. This sleeveless top features a modern Broderie Anglaise, also known as English Embroidery. It is from a brand across the pond, called Winser London. Winser London is a brand known for luxurious quality women’s clothes at sensible prices. I have a beautiful silk blouse that I have really enjoyed wearing from Winser (might remember it here), but the one I am wearing in this post is more my speed…soft and comfy! And, as luck would have it, it’s on sale! There is nothing that screams summer more to me than a white eyelet type shirt. The pale pink jeans have been on rotation as well. I’m pretty sure we all have white jeans, but this pale pink is so pretty mixed with white, light or dark gray, browns, mustards, and love with a sage green.
The beautiful neutral, geo fan print kimono from Elizabeth Gillett is the perfect topper for any sleeveless tee or blouse. Elizabeth creates the most beautiful prints for her scarves and kimonos, and believes that “a scarf is the ultimate accessory, an outfit-changer that brightens the face like a great shade of lipstick, makes traveling fun and chic, screens us from the cold and helps us edit what’s shown and what’s covered in an easy, one-size, timelessly style-able item”. I have many of her pieces, and love each and every one of them!
Back to the wedding…the entire weekend was a merry-go-round of laughter and fun. The wedding ceremony was one of the sweetest I’ve ever witnessed. It was officiated by one of my favorite people in all the world, which made it even more special. The flowers at the church and reception were exquisite. The arrangements had peonies, the most beautiful neutral color roses, other flowers that I can’t recall, and cactus (it’s Texas!). We had two tequila donkeys that were precious, a tent outside the main room filled with boho furniture and a disco ball hanging from the center of the tent. The band was absolutely amazing, and I danced the entire night (feeling the effect of that still!). And of course, I think my daughter was the most beautiful bride ever! There were people from all of the country and world (Australia, France and Pakistan) that came to be with us. It was so touching to have so many people that we love there to celebrate!
We are still on a high from the wedding weekend, but the majority of our family woke up sick yesterday morning (me included) with the upper respiratory crud. The bride texted me that she has it, as well as her entire office in Austin. I was planning on laying low and resting this week, but now I am forced to! I hope you all have a great day!
