W & K

Carolyn and I have been dreaming about the Royal Wedding since Will and Kate’s engagement in November, so you can imagine our excitement yesterday! We prepared for the regal occasion with foods and drinks with British themes. We woke up at 3:30 am to watch the occasion right from the very beginning!

We had a fun filled day planned from the wee hours of the morning to far after the champagne toast had been given. We were so excited to share in this joyous union of marriage. What we were even more excited to see was the fashions that it would bring! Who would design Catherine’s dress? What would Pippa wear? What guests would be wearing the best hat? Every question was answered, and they did not disappoint!

When Catherine stepped out of her car, Carolyn gasped and I cried at the sight of her Sarah Burton Wedding Dress. Wondering who Sarah Burton is? She is the creative director of Alexander McQueen. Sound familiar? Of course it does. We have mentioned the label in numerous posts! We are big fans!

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, you can do no wrong!

You may be thinking, sure the royals looked great but what did your favorite Hidden Gems wear for the joyous occassion?!

We began with pj’s, fasionators, and our replica sapphire rings…

We followed this with a trip to Newbury Street to sip on some iced tea to comemerate this special day. Here we are at Stephanie’s on Newbury honoring some of Kate’s looks.

We were not the only ones celebrating in Boston! Many stores including Hotel Chocolat and Jack Wills were decorated inside and out in honor of Wills and Kate!

Did you watch the Royal Wedding? What was your favorite style? Did you wear any Hidden Gems?

Can you spot the Hidden Gem in this picture?

Hope you had as much fun as we did!

  1. Your hats and tributes are stunning ladies. Looks like you had a lovely day for eating outside too- hope it wasn’t too windy for the hats?!

    • At one point the cream hat almost flew off…but then the wind settled. Thank goodness! Wish we were going to the Kentucky Derby so we could show off these fabulous gems!
