A new regular (ish) feature on A Little Bird! As Wardrobe Wonderings is on a hiatus (back soon, folks) I thought I’d delve into those hard-to-dress-for occasions I seem to attend on a regular basis (weddings, festivals, job interviews, client meetings, smart-casual nights out, blogger events…), and first up is the wedding.
The Mr and I were invited along to a lovely night do for an old colleague’s wedding. I wanted to buy a new dress, but not a whole new outfit. I wanted something simple and chic I could dress up with accessories. And I had 10 minutes with a grumpy Mr in tow to find it. Hardly retail therapy.
I wanted to do something different with my hair – have you noticed I never, EVER do anything with my hair other than what it does naturally? I’m a total hair bore. But I felt inspired by my lovely friend Kel’s blog, Hair Advice and All Things Nice, and decided to try an up-do. I finished the look with a slick of Prestige liquid liner in black and Barry M’s Grey on my nails.
Have you been to any weddings or formal events this summer? What did you wear?
