After chasing around all of London for a dress worthy of being worn to my sister's wedding, I finally found The One at Mango. Bliss.
Because I'll wear it on a happy occasion - my little sister getting married. Yes, I'll have to be careful not to get any cake or tears on it.
Because I'll wear it on my 30th birthday! And yes, for me that's a happy day. And surrounded as I will be by people I love, I have no doubt that it will be.
I'll wear it under the Stockholm sun, sipping a glass of wine and having a celebratory meal with friends and family, along smiles, hugs and happiness. Taking a break from my beloved London life and just pausing to appreciate the little and big miracles that await us every day.
For now it's hanging in my bedroom, lending a hint of summer with a promise of unforgettable days to come.
