160 days to go: Pre-Wedding Anniversary

Tomorrow will be my 20th Wedding Anniversary.
I can't tell you what I was wearing 20 years ago today but tomorrow you will be able to see what I was wearing Feb 11th 1989.
By a total coincidence when I was taking today's photo I noticed I was standing in front of the picture which shows my parents and grandparents on their wedding days.
From the left you can see my maternal grandparents, Winnifred and John pictured on their wedding day - January 11th 1941.
My grandfather fought in the Second World War but died suddenly of a thrombosis when he was just 42.

My grandmother never remarried and died in 1989 aged 72.
My parents Frank and Joyce (in the middle) married on March 23rd 1963 and thankfully are both still alive and live happily together in the next road to me.
My paternal grandparents Winnifred and Tom married (on the right) on March 31st 1934.
They remained happily married until my grandmother died on Mother's Day 1975. My grandfather died less than two years later.

Before I sign off don't forget to add your name to my free yellow shoe giveaway.

Today I am wearing a look inspired by Imogen's Polyvore:
The blouse I altered from Asos
Trousers _ I have recently lengthened so i can wear heels from M & Co.
Cardigan - Principles
Scarf - Tesco
Shoes - Clark's

Those scarves really do complement your curvy figure.

How neat to have those all those old wedding photos. What a treasure!

That's a chic outfit -- I love it. How did you tie the scarf? I usually fold mine in half and then pull the ends through the loop side, but my scarf ends up a lot longer. I like how you got yours to be a little shorter.

You look gorgeous - and I love old wedding photos - they are such a reminder of the fashions of the time.
