Have you ever been to a Sip and See? They are becoming more and more common outside the US I think, but yesterday I felt like a true Southern lady attending my first Sip and See here. They are similar to a shower, only at a Sip and See you ‘sip’ your cocktail and ‘see’ the baby. My great friends across the street, who already have 4 children (their third pregnancy produced twin boys – can you imagine!), just adopted a beautiful newborn little girl. I tell you some people are just wired to be Moms and she is one of them, while I have to search for my maternal genes most mornings! I am beyond thrilled for them and indeed I’m very proud of them, though they insist that although they are providing a loving home and family for their new addition, their daughter has also impacted and changed their lives for the better. I can’t wait to see her grow up and blossom into a beautiful girl.
So yesterday required a couple of changes. I spent the day in the following outfit – these jeans are fabulously comfortable so I’m not sure why I haven’t worn them since our blogger meet up back in February! I started the day in white heels but the heat soon made me regret that decision.
Trousers – Zara (old) // Top – Zara (old) // Sandals – Tory Burch Emmy (old)
Later that evening, for the Sip and See, I took advantage of having an occasion to wear my Ted Baker Allysia dress that I got back in the sales at the Trafford Centre. My new Boden clutch was the perfect accessory and I wore my Tory Burch Eddie flats to respect the host’s floors!
It’s a big day tomorrow – I turn 42!! I LOVE birthdays and I’m so excited to head out for lunch with the family and then dinner with my fabulous Husband. Another year, another year wiser? Maybe not, but who cares!? I’m having fun and that’s what counts!
