12.08.2020- What I Wore Today #426

Wednesday, 12 August 2020

If there's one thing which I've learnt over the last six months, it's that even the best laid plans- no matter how far in advance you make them- can be well and truly scuppered by things which are totally out of your control. This year was due to be a wedding-tastic one for me with lots of friends due to get married over the summer. And, let's face it, nothing quite puts the brakes on a wedding reception and party quite like a worldwide pandemic. Whilst my 2021 diary is filling up with postponed ceremonies (I'm keeping *everything* crossed that they will be able to happen) I've been determined not to let my forward planning in the wardrobe realm go to waste, so have been taking the opportunity (if you can call it that!) to take some of the special occasion outfits which I'd had stashed away for a spin, even if just round the block and back:
 
Dress- Kate Spade New York
Headband- Accessorize
Sunglasses- c/o Oliver Bonas
Shoes- Birkenstock

This dress of dreams has been sitting in my wardrobe since March 2019....! I spotted it back in September 2018 as part of Kate Spade's SS19 show, and it was love at first sight- when I saw it I knew that it would be the perfect piece to wear to the weddings which I had in my diary for this year. Despite the pandemic having other plans, it's still a totally brilliant investment buy and a piece which I couldn't be happier with, especially as it feels really timeless and the perfect purchase for any spring or summer occasions ahead. Hopefully it won't be too long before I can deploy in places more spectacular than the streets of Surrey!

Have you got any special occasion purchases stacked away?
