I own so little nautical type stuff – stripes especially – that I am surprised I could do this challenge this month. But I do have this navy and white striped shirt and that is where this all began. It was rather easy after that. I just wish I had an actual boater straw hat but alas this is the closest thing in my closet. And yes I do believe it is a demi-cloche as the brim is rather short in the back and much less prominent.
The interesting, and infuriating thing, about this skirt is the elastic waist band. That means I can sit it low or high depending on the outfit. However, it means that it creeps too. Sigh. Clothes. Shoes too for that matter. I had to give my new wedding shoes to my sister as I just could not get them to fit, even after taking them to the cobbler. Back to the purple/blue ones. I love them dearly I just hope the straps won’t be a problem!
I’m excited and nervous about the wedding in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks. I have a co-worker getting married there tomorrow and while I am definitely excited for her (especially since this is her first time getting married and mine not so much) I am excited for me too. Her being there means I get the low-down on the latest and it reminds me that my/our wedding is closer than ever. And I am having an ever increasingly difficult time trying to stop myself from talking about it! Oy vey. I fail again! I’ve just never been there, I’ve never seen the Grand Canyon (oh we are doing a day trip to the South Rim) and I’ve wanted to get married in Vegas since I was a teen. Yes, really. So I’m excited on three fronts!
