Brother's Wedding - Day 2

You would have remembered from this post that my brother got married back in December. It was a multiple day affair with several parties and a lot of different outfits.

Here's what I wore to Day 2 of the wedding:

The second day of a traditional wedding is the main day. It's when the papers are signed and the couple officially get married. So I am excited to say that this is when I got my new sister in law.

I loved dressing up so much throughout the three days, but this was probably my favourite look from the whole wedding. The long dress took some getting used to when it came to walking, but I loved it so much. The colours and patterns on this dress were so pretty - made me feel so special.

And I also had a lot of fun getting ready for the big day. I got my hair and make up done thanks to Seeta at Reyamore and she did an incredible job. I rarely ever get my hair and make up done like this, so it was a really nice feeling to feel this made up.

Essentials

As I've grown older, I've realised the kind of essentials I just need to keep on me at most times, if possible.

For me, a portable phone charger is number one on that list. I always carry a little charger on me in case I run out of juice.

It's actually a really nifty little gadget to have and it's so easy to carry around. It's called the Nipper and is super small - about the size of a sugar cube. And then when you want to charge your phone, you just add some batteries, and you're good to go. 

This was really useful during party season as well - I got to go out and not worry about my battery running out, so that I didn't have to worry about not being to get an Uber at the end of the night.

Party season was also not great on my eyes. The last few weekends in December were focused around my brother's wedding, not to mention all those mid week late nights. I was also wearing a lot of eye make up. So that means that my eyes were more than a little tired.

Thankfully I came across these useful eye drops to help keep them hydrated. I wear contact pretty much every days as well so my eyes really needed extra hydrating. These Artelac Rebalance drops have been really useful - great for hydrating my eyes.

How did you get through the party season?

New Years Eve look

I actually had some plans for NYE this year, unlike previous years - a nice tame house party, followed by a walk to Primrose Hill so we could see all the fireworks.

Unfortunately British Airways had other plans - where I spent most of NYE at an airport in the Alps, unable to make it home on time.

A shame as I had the perfect outfit for the evening too. A nice sparkly top, with some cool ankle boots.

I bought this top for a Christmas party last year and I haven't worn it as much as I would like. I need far more special occasions during the year to wear it. Possibly my birthday?

Oh and the boots are a new favourite of mine. As we know, ankle boots are my essential shoes for all seasons, especially the winter. And these are just the most perfect. Most of my boots are black so it's nice to have a brown pair thrown in the mix, and the block heel is the perfect height - not too high, but high enough so I can reach the railing on public transport on my way to work.

The shoes are from Brantano and I love them. Super stylish and super comfortable.
