Outfit of the Day (OOTD): My sister’s birthday

Posted on Updated on

Happy birthday to my sister! And happy birthday to Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge! (Yes I’m a royalty fan – bear with me!)

I remember one year ago, it was a happy distraction from writing my MSc dissertation to watch the live coverage of the Royal Baby’s birth – and I did live in Scotland at the time so it was a huge thing for everyone around! However, Prince George’s birth (not so much my sister’s birthday as I’ve gotten used to that one 😉 ) makes me realise how fast one year goes by!

But enough of my Quarter-life crisis-problems (for today)! I’ve seen a few other bloggers do OOTD-posts and (after I found out what that means) I decided my sister’s birthday is a great opportunity to do one of these posts myself. So here’s my outfit for my sister’s birthday tea party:

My tea party outfit

I decided to wear a black Old Navy dress which I bought on my huge American shopping spree (don’t judge!) with my L.K. Bennett Maddox wedges (the updated version of the Greta wedge Kate Middleton wore before and after her wedding), a matching Giorgio Fin clutch which I bought years ago for my high school graduation ball (but didn’t wear then) and 2$ icing-sunglasses also bought in America. I added my butterfly watch, the wishbone bracelet (a birthday present from my best friend), the SIX-ring along with my small Thomas Sabo Glam & Soul earrings (a Christmas present from my sister) which are the things I wear almost daily. The silver bangle and the other ring I got from my mother for Christmas (I know – that was a jewellery-loaded Christmas last year but I don’t complain).


Admittedly, I got obsessed with L.K. Bennett after I saw Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, wear several pieces by this British brand and ever since I cannot stop admiring their stuff. I already have three pairs of Court Shoes and two clutches by them and I fear there will be more… However, since L.K. Bennett is a luxury brand, the Maddox wedge is the only thing I bought which was not on sale (I just love the style and my mother had a similar pair of shoes when she was young so I think it was genetically determined). They do have sales going on frequently so it’s well worth checking their site regularly. I’m sorry if I got anyone addicted to their stuff too, that was not my goal. I just like to share my obsessions so I would love to hear from equally obsessed people to know that I’m not alone!

Happy celebrations everyone! 😀
