I bought this skirt at London Fashion Weekend earlier this year. Its an event I would highly recommend to anyone (anyone can buy tickets) because there are lots of fashion industry talks with bloggers and magazine editors AND you will experience one of the best designer clothes sales EVER. I also purchased a Viv Westwood Leather Jacket for under £200 when the RRP was about £800! Anyway I ummed and arred about this skirt, it wasn’t expensive but I thought it could only be occasion ware and at that time I had no occasion to go to! Then an invite to my cousin’s wedding popped through the letterbox and i knew it was a purchase meant to be!
The wedding was at the most gorgeous country house hotel in Surrey and thankfully the english weather held out and I managed to get a few good pictures in the beautiful surroundings.
The gardens were glorious and provided the perfect dusky backdrop to my floral printed skirt I had been longing to wear..
So I whisked my mum outside, glass in hand, into the fresh air away from the dancing to amble around the grounds and take a few shots along the way. Normally my mum isn’t the best at taking photos for me and my blog and she will readily admit that, but I think she surpassed herself this time!
And here is the lovely lady herself, not posing I just managed to capture her mid stare off into the distance…funnily enough wearing the Vivienne Westwood jacket we bought at the same time as the skirt!
Then we ventured back inside for a good old fashioned boogie on down with the rest of my aunts and cousins 🙂
Both the Top and Shoes were from Zara and the bag a Louis Vuitton from the boutiques of Kalkan…
