What I wore: to a wedding in Mauritius

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE! I hope your week has been good to you!

So some of you may remember, back in January I went to Mauritius for ten days. The bf's brother AND sister both got married there - NOT to each other, and both on different days! :)

Here's what I wore to the first wedding - Chris' sister's.


What I took into consideration:
Heat = bad hair
Looking too overdressed (there were very few people there, let alone 'young people'
Being too hot in my outfit
Buying a summer outfit in the January sales in the UK!

So this is what I went with. I picked it up in the H&M sale for 15 pounds!

Dress, H&M; Vest (just seen), Florence and Fred; Wedges, Next; Clutch, Accessorize; Necklace, H&M Berlin; Sunglasses, O'Neill.  
The bride and groom. She made her dress herself, from silk :)



The wedding party.
The groom and his best man!
I loved the aisle



 

 Have a great weekend! I'm going for drinks with my friends after work and have the Mighty Mighty Market tomorrow - what wonderful things will  you be doing?

PS I have a lot of catching up to do with everyone's blogs - I haven't forgotten you and will be catching up over the weekend :)

  9. You look beautiful - I love the bold colours. When I went to my cousins wedding in Phuket I did feel sorry for all the men having to wear suits/trousers/shirts when it was so hot!!

  11. That's my kind of a wedding, on a beach somewhere. What a talented bride to sew her own dress. I will make a vow not to get married until I can sew my dress. That way I can make sure I am a "real woman." Not a lot of young people eh? Sounds like Palm Springs, CA. Just retired people and gay couples with dogs. I kid you not.
