Pomp and Snobbery at It's Finest

This week Tom suggested perhaps a Royal Wedding theme - I know what you're thinking - that we've jumped on the bandwagon. I suggested that it might be fun to every-so-often tackle specific topics to our respective countries and each write a lighthearted post on the subject.

While Tom says the Royal Wedding is more of a Brit thing, but I disagree - because as a Canadian, Prince William is my future king as well. The British Monarchy reigns over the entire commonwealth, which includes Canada. I obviously don't take it too seriously, but I do enjoy the glamour and fanfare of it all.

I'm not here to talk about Wills though, I'm here to talk about Kate and how I adore her fashion sense. I want to own all of her hats pretty much. I want to someday host a garden party and make everyone wear fancy hats and drink tea.

I've decided to derail the topic a bit and not talk about the upcoming nuptials, but to talk about one of my favourite colours lately: Royal Blue.

My famous hat paired with my favourite coat ever!
Seriously this jacket was a steal and it's gorgeous!
Royal blue is such a eye-catching colour.
One of my new nail polish colours: Dating a Royal.
Not quite as glitzy as Kate's sapphire, but I love it.
This is a lapis ring I bought back when I work at a jewellery kiosk. I love the colour.
It's hard to see in this photo, but there is royal blue in this dress.
This was my birthday outfit.
I won't be watching the wedding on TV - as it comes on at 3 am here, and will likely be quite boring. I'll catch the highlights online. A lot of people seem quite upset that this wedding is getting so much press - but I don't really care one way or the other. For me I think the little girl inside of me is living out her princess fantasies through this.

Tom, as you live in the city that this wedding is happening, I expect a full report on the state of London right now! Also, your Bad Habits post :)


  1. I'm still torn between whether or not I give a damn about the wedding.

    Love all the blue you having going on though!

  2. I'm thankful I won't be in the UK during the Wedding - 'cause I think it will be madness. But I am a bit curious - so I'll catch the highlights.

    Yeah, most shades of blue don't suit me - but royal blue does.

  3. I think it will be a bit manic. Maybe not as much as expected though. I won't be attending, unfortunately. I think my invite got lost in the post!

  4. Well, you all the the day off, right? At least you don't have to try and get to work on time.

    I am sooooo glad not to be flying into London during this.
