Wedding Season

It is officially wedding season in South Africa! There's something couples love about getting married in December/January... Must be the holidays, festive cheer and happiness this time of year brings.
Personally, I can't stand the heat, hence the reason I got married in Winter :)

This was the outfit I wore this past Saturday to one of Hubs' friends wedding. It was a small but lovely reception. (Hubs actually went to two weddings on that day!) We have another wedding on boxing day (the 26th) and another in January next year. I'm looking forward to the one in January, as its a "vintage themed" wedding and will take place somewhere lovely. 
The wedding invitation said that heels were not advised. I can only imagine the fun I'll have planning something to wear!

I've worn this "skirt" before to a previous wedding, and for those who have been following my blog for a while, will know that it's actually a dress. Yes, a very awful dress... But makes a darn pretty skirt! Paired with a flowy blouse (as it was hot) and a belt this time.

Today was my first day of my "holiday" and I can say that it was very strange. I woke up when Hubs did (he is still working) and I stayed up. I felt like at any moment I was going to get a call asking me why I'm not at work. 
I think I'll start enjoying it when Hubs is on holiday with me. Which will be Friday, so yeah!

Hope you all have a lovely week!

  2. Laiqah, you are such a lovely lady with a lovely sense of style. I am a fan of maxi dresses and maxi skirts, so this dress-turned-skirt looks lovely. Your hair looks gorgeous, and both your face and hair look super-cute (as usual). I also love all the bracelets on your right wrist.
