Silvery wedding guest wear

Wow, how is it already the second week of May?? I've been working on some concurrent projects at work which has meant long hours at the office (I'll spare the details but just, UGH!!). Luckily the sneak peek of summer in Ottawa has more than made up for it. Without a doubt, my best pick-me-up is soaking up the warm late day sunshine with a run along the canal and seeing the pops of colour of tulip beds in full bloom. I haven't even given much thought to a second glance, though I have missed seeing all YOUR blogs. I'll be coming around soon to catch up on what I've missed! 

Last Saturday we attended the wedding of our friends P&L on a maple syrup farm in rural Edwards, Ontario. (Am I the only one who feels that come the warmer months I just rotate between work clothes, workout wear, PJs and dressy wedding outfits?) The bride made her entrance in a horse and carriage - awesome! B looked super handsome in his groomsman suit (I had to include a photo below!). I wore a dress I bought at Laura on mega sale last year (75% off!) but haven't had a chance to wear yet.

Today's a big day - it's B's 30th birthday and our 'minus-one year' wedding anniversary! For his birthday I'm revealing the destination of a surprise trip I've planned for us in June. Wishing you all an equally celebratory weekend!


Dress - Laura
Shoes - Le Chateau
Earrings - Le Chateau
