This is what I wore:
The amazing Tierre came over on Friday and brought the two hats she'd made for me to choose. I thought this teal one was incredible and would perfectly suit the occasion.
I built the outfit around the hat. That's my Smoking Lily jacket with a teal camisole underneath. I added my blue lacy tights to help tie in the blue and teal mix.this dress and this jacket). It was $23.99 (that's with 30% off). I love the burnout velvet floral design and the random rhinestones (easiest to see in the first picture) - it also has lots of sequins along the waistline, but they're hidden by the jacket in these photos.
The skirt has a really uneven hemline (on purpose), including a very long piece on the left side that drips down to nearly the ankle.
I thought this was the funniest label - this is the skirt's content tag:
There is something so forbidden about wearing denim to a wedding! But this lovely jacket is the exception, I'm sure.
The jewelry is a mix of vintage (the necklace), locally made (the ring) and cheap stuff (the earrings):
Here's a better look at the hat:
Of course, Tierre's label is inside.
My good ol' teal shoes:
L also dressed up in a mix of navy, grey and purple.
His blazer is navy blue velvet, the vest is a navy blue pinstripe, the shirt is purple/grey floral, the tie is purple and blue striped, and his pants are a dark grey. Oh, and he's wearing navy Fluevogs. Very stylin'!
Backing things up (I knew you'd want to see the wedding outfit first, see how considerate I am?), this was my Friday hanging out with L, going for lunch and going to Winesday outfit:
My outerwear picture:
Jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), sweater (Banana Republic, thrifted), skirt (J.J.F, consignment), boots (Gabor), watch necklace (Plum).
During the day on Saturday, I wore my "jammy dress" - I was slightly hungover from Winesday (a lot of wine, hot-tubbing, lots of food, and a very late night!).
Dress (I.N.C.), boots (Aldo, consignment).
Part of my Friday was spent driving to Sidney and back to recharge our car's battery after some crackhead rooted through it and then left the door open overnight.
I took the camera - check out the lovely waterfront as we head back into town:
Driving by Elk Lake:
I used to go swimming and canoeing here as a kid.
The hills in the distance across the lake.
This is the other end, where the boathouse for the rower is. Canada's Olympic rowers train here.
I am also very thankful for my lovely kitties:
He also gave his little brother a bath.

Your wedding outfit is GORGEOUS! Sheila, you're so beautiful. The new hat perfectly complements your skirt and shoes. Not to mention how snazzy your Hubby looks.ReplyDelete
Love the pattern mix look!
I love all the photos from your walk. It looks like a beautiful place, and I think it's wonderful to have a place of such sentimental value.
Awww sweet kitties. I hope little Vizzini is settling down as he gets older. That last picture just melted me!
What a fun weekend...that dress is amazing and I really like both skirts! The hat is so much fun! You look great as always!ReplyDelete
Love the wedding outfit. The skirt's uneven hem is very appealing and the hat tops off the unique look. I'm also attracted to the jammy dress.ReplyDelete
