Outfit: Shoeper Challenge #45 and a Wedding






Barratts Cream fabric

Yesterday a friend of mine got married. Her sister is the same age as me and I have known her since I was about 3 years old – before I started school. As the bride is 3 years younger than her sister, I’ve known her her whole life. I can remember her in a pushchair when she was a toddler. My sister and parents were wedding guests too, and the ceremony was held at my old church. The reception was at a country pub in a little village about 20 miles from my hometown. We had a lovely day and although it rained whilst we were in church, it cleared up again and the rain held off long enough for the photos. The food was great, the speeches were entertaining and then there was dancing.



I wore a cream shrug over my dress in church, and kept it on most of the day as it dropped quite chilly and got windy when the rain came. I bought these shoes 7 and a half years ago for another friend’s wedding and they only come out occasionally, usually for weddings. I wasn’t going to include them in the Shoeper Challenge, but since I’ve worn them, I thought I might as well add them to the list.
