Our wedding is now just three months away and I cannot wait. We’ve got pretty much everything organised although there still feels like there’s still an awful lot to do. Poppy and my sister-in-law Sarah are in the midst of organising my hen party: a cocktail cruise on one of the canal boats that “resides” on the canal here in Skipton. So of course, I’ve been looking for my hen party outfit. The party is in late June. By then, if all goes well, all of England’s lockdown measures will have been lifted and we’ll be able to party like we used to. I believe there’ll be music and where there’s music, women and cocktails, there’s dancing. So my hen party outfit must allow for that. I want to wear white, ivory or pastels and I want to be able to wear it again and again.
Hen party outfit
This is one option for my hen party outfit: a white tiered cotton maxi dress. It’s got a slightly boho aesthetic which I love and it allows for plenty of movement. The puffed sleeves and bow at the waist make give it enough flamboyance for a partying bride-to-be. And of course, it will be another perfect dress to take on our honeymoon.
The starfish earrings and bracelet are in keeping with the “nautical/water” theme, while pearls and hearts will always feel wedding-y. Along with the guardian angel bracelet which was a birthday gift from Ian, they too have a touch of boho about them.
Cult Gaia Alba bag
I wrote a standalone post for this Cult Gai Alba bag which you can see here. This is an investment piece that I shall be using all through summer for years to come. It’s big enough for my phone, brush, lipstick and eyewear.
D ring sliders
These neutral D ring sliders dress the outfit down to suit a daytime look or an occasion, such as a barbecue or garden gathering, for which flat shoes are a more practical option. These look a lot more expensive than their £29 price tag and they’re very well-made from vegan leather. The gold-coloured hardware ties in nicely with my jewellery and the chain on my bag. Mules and sliders are having quite the resurgence these last few seasons and these are an elegant addition to my summer staples and, are a good option for keeping my sea-legs in check when we’re on the cocktail cruise.
The Perfect Pair
What is the perfect eyewear to compliment this white tiered maxi dress? I cannot think of a style more suitable than the Amalfi sunglasses by Aspinal of London. The crystal acetate, the strong, glamorous silhouette and the statement signature branding are exactly what a fabulous dress like this needs. These are and will always be, among my all-time favourite eyewear.
I’ve got a few other hen party outfit options that I’ll post over the next few weeks. I’d love to know what you did and what you wore for your hen party- do share and let me know in the comment section below.
