At last I can reveal the outfit I wore for my son’s wedding on 24th August. I chose to take a slightly alternative route for many reasons. One of which was that I must have tried on every dress in London during the month of July. The major problem I encountered was the length, or should I say lack of, as most of the dresses I tried fell well above the knee. Not a good look for me in fact I don’t consider knees are a great area of the body to be emphasised unless you are very young or have exceptionally amazing legs.
I decided to follow the example of the chic french women I had observed here. I opted for trousers with a loose duster coat in a delicate shade of pink trimmed with cream lace.
My outfit is by PauleKa a french designer.

I also let my hair grow a bit longer and added some waves to soften the look and add width in order to balance the hat. I may keep it like that as it is a lot easier to style.
