Top: ???

Skirt: City Chic

Shoes: Wittner

The bags are packed, the vows are written, Suki’s gone to stay at her Cat Getaway Retreat, and the countdown is on.

The wedding’s this Saturday, and The Sophisticate and I are as ready as can be. I have time for one, last, super quick blog post before I tuck myself up in bed in preparation for the Long Drive North tomorrow.

I’m so pleased to have found another top that this City Chic skirt can be worn with – that makes two! – I think it works because the stripes from Fifi Lapin’s sleeves mirror the stripes on the skirt. I’m playing it safe with nude heels and no jewellery, but looking at the photos I think this outfit would work well with a kick of colour. A bright belt, some plastic bangles, maybe some hot pink shoes. Not that I own a pair (yet).

I am sporting some outstandingly red lips, though. My beautiful Bridesmaid Callie is also acting as my make-up artist for the Big Day, and we were toying with the idea of some bright lipstick. I decided to go with the safer option of plummy pink as I always feel vaguely carnivorous when I’m wearing red lippy, but the shade that we sampled was too eye-popping to turn our backs on, so I bought a tube for special occasions.

Long day tomorrow, so I’ll sign off for now – hope everyone’s enjoying their week, and I hope my fellow Australian’s enjoy their mid-week holiday tomorrow!
