Happy September! I am back from my trip to Alberta, and the whirlwind of wedding festivities! My boyfriend’s oldest brother got married this past weekend in Edmonton, and it was beautiful. It was a semi-traditional Indian wedding, with ceremonies over a couple days, but they kept it fairly low-key. I had a lot of fun getting my mehndi done, and partaking in all the family activities. The bride looked absolutely STUNNING, I hope I can share some pictures once they are developed! One of my favourite parts of the reception was actually the speeches – that rarely happens, but each one was thoughtful and touching. 🙂
Besides the wedding, I didn’t get too much of a feel for Edmonton because there was just no time! I actually spent a whole day of my trip hospitalized because I had such a bad migraine. Some of my close friends know I suffer from these every couple of months, and they are truly debilitating. This time was the worst though – I had to have an IV and was nauseous to the point of being sick. This may be TMI, but I’m sharing in hopes that any other migraine sufferers out there can share their cures, if any!
So that’s my current life update. It’s September, and I’m working with all engines going on the blog now that I’m home. September just has way too much going on! It’s #NYFW (New York Fashion Week, duh), TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival), and pumpkin spice everything is back on the shelves. I am ON IT!
On to my outfit – a combination of printed pants by Ted Baker, and my current favourite black silk top from Banana Republic. I actually bought this top to layer underneath another, but didn’t realize how much I’d love the fit! It was definitely one of my best “staple” buys. These pants are also a lot of fun; I always get complimented when I wear them. When I do printed pants, I tend to keep the rest of the outfit toned down. You can’t go wrong with classic black stilettos and a structured bag!
The best part of this outfit are my beautiful earrings by KG World, my friend Gaby’s line of accessories and swimwear. You can see more on her instagram account, and she will have an etsy store opening soon! Exciting!
Yes, I got photobombed by a squirrel 🙂
