Chambray & Stripes

Greetings from Hong Kong!  I finally made it after 24 hours of travel.  I've been here before, but I always forget how exotic it is with its combination of urban skyscrapers and lush jungle.  We got off to an early start today for my friend's wedding ceremony.  It was my first Indian wedding ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful.  Weddings are one of my favorite things as it is always great to see your friends so happy as they walk down the aisle (or in this case sit under the canopy) to their future husband/wife.  I didn't understand a lot of what the priest said, but another friend did a great job of explaining the significance of each part of the ceremony.  Assuming my jet lag doesn't catch up with me (and the rain holds off), I'm off for a boat ride around the Hong Kong Harbor to celebrate my friend's marriage.

I shot this outfit before I left and it combines two of my current favorite, chambray and stripes. Okay, maybe 3 favorites if we add Bauble Bar in.  I can't claim total credit for this one though as I saw a similar outfit in a picture Target and knew I had all the pieces at home to recreate it.  I love it when that happens as I'm trying to avoid more $50 tubes of mascara!

Have a great weekend!
