It's a Royal Celebration...

Check out my Tumblr for more pics!

Wasn't the wedding awesome? Kate's...sorry Katherine's dress was beautiful - she looked gorgeous today.

Sadly I was at work - but managed to watch most of the big day thanks to BBC live streaming! woohoo.  Though I was mega busy, work was so much fun today - the floors we decked with colourful bunting and Kate and William flags and they laid out cucumber sandwiches, strawberries and cream and Pimms!

I also managed to pop down to Trafalgar Square at lunch and caught some of the street party there - it was packed and I saw a wee glimpse of Boris Johnson.

I love this dress, it's both dressy and casual and I adore how colourful it is.  As today was the Royal Wedding I thought I'd run with the theme - slightly more dressed up than usual, with a hint of 'Britishness' with my shoes.

Cardigan, Tights & Necklace - Primark, Dress & Vest Top - H&M, Shoes - New Look

These shoes I bought the other day in New Look - they're so cute and fell in love with them as soon as I saw them.  They felt comfy when I tried them on - and I wore them for the first time today and boy did they hurt :( HOPEFULLY this was the breaking in stage and they'll be fine next time :) (PS if you don't know what I'm talking about - I have a terrible time finding comfy pumps - see my previous post for more)

Another reason it was a great day is because I recently won a blog give away on this lovely lady's blog! Its my first thing I've won in MANY years and I get $40 to spend in THIS awesome Etsy shop owned by this lovely lady.  I'm just so excited and like a kid in a sweet shop with so many things to choose from I don't know where to start!  THANKS LADIES!

What did everyone else do to celebrate the Royal Wedding?

I love those pumps, I saw them in New Look and very almost bought them in tan...but there weren't any that fitted just right! So annoying when one size is a tad too small and the next size up is wayyy too big! It's a shame because they're doing 20% student discount right now! Your outfit is lovely x

Just a Thought
