Happy Monday friends!
For those of you who are following along with our adventures on Instagram (we are @marymarantz & @justinmarantz if you aren’t already! If you want to see where in the world we are now- I’ll give you a hint…bonjour!…make sure to follow along!), you know that this past weekend we attended a wedding as guests. But not just any wedding, an English wedding. Full of all the Kate Middleton/ Downton Abbey fabulousness that we Americans drool over!
As soon as we knew we were going, the next question on our mind was of course what on earth to wear. In fact, I wrote a whole post about whether to fascinator or not to fascinator HERE. I went back & forth on short dress v. long dress, hair up v. hair down, and what color to wear. But right from the get-go, Justin knew exactly what he wanted to wear: A navy tux with black bow tie.
And when he told me this I was, shall we say…..unconvinced. Navy & black, who does that??
But then Justin did what Justin does & he started doing his research. And it wasn’t long before things like this started ending up in my inbox. It says “Hey Girl. I rock the navy tux and so can Justin. :) ”
And so, I started to give in. I mean who can resist Gosling logic.
When we got to London & made our way through the Tube, he made sure to point out every Skyfall poster featuring the latest James Bond in what? A navy tux & black bow tie.
And so, by the time the wedding rolled around I had been worn down sufficiently and the blue tux it was. And I gotta say, once it was on…I was fully convinced!
And apparently so was the wedding photographer for the day.
When it came time for the big group photo of everyone there….he asked if Mr. Bond could come around & stand down front! :)
Gah, there will just be no living with him now! :)
Happy Monday y’all!
** You Kate Middleton fans will be happy to know that the dress I ended up settling on was a Jenny Packham gown. I came across it when I went to pick out a fascinator & fell in love. She’s apparently one of Kate’s favorite designers & I can see why. Not only did I think the dress was really pretty, it was super comfortable to wear too. So if you’re ever in need of a formal dress, I highly recommend her! Cheerio! :)
