The fiancé and I headed out on this fine day to embark on a very, very diffcult, very hard, very strenuous, very tedious task: wedding cake tasting.

I know. So hard.

While I won’t reveal the cakes’ designs (yes, there are two–a groom’s cake and a bride’s cake), I will tell you the flavors! Mine will be traditional wedding cake with a raspberry & cream cheese filling. HB’s will be a red velvet chocolate with chocolate buttercream filling. Delicious.

This outfit was all about comfort, then. After my closet cleanout, I was reunited with my old Target ikat cardi and paired it with a gorgeous long strand of real baroque pearls my future mother-in-law bought for me in Paris (the boutique is called Hervé Domar Paris). And the Hunter boots are a recent aquisition after the heavens opened and deluged the city two days prior. It was sunny by the time they arrived, but that didn’t stop me from wearing them.

Bon Appétit.

    Love that cardigan – it looks so J.Crew! I also like how you styled your Hunter’s with a very feminine outfit… like a prim and proper look made casual! Also, the way you described your wedding cakes has me seriously craving for sweets now haha. I’m excited to see what it’s going to look like!
    Hope you’re having a great week Kristina!

    The cardi is beautiful – love the print. But what I love most about this outfit are the Hunters! So royal – I can picture you stepping out of a Land Rover on some british country estate. Love it. Have a wonderful day! xo, Christina
    ps. any cream cheese cake will be delicious! 🙂

    Auuuugh, those pearls are gorgeous. Gorgeous! I love the way you’ve dressed them down with this cute and casual outfit, and even paired them with Hunter’s! I have a cardi very similar to this, I will have to try this look once it’s warm enough!

    The outfit is wonderful! And those pearls are absolutely stunning. What a great outfit for cake tasting. 🙂

    Good old Texas… When you don’t have boots and aren’t expecting it, it pours. When you do have boots and are expecting it, nothing but sun.
    Love the outfit!

    Man Kristina, I must say you have guts wearing rain boots during sunny weather haha. I have a pair of Steve Madden rain boots tucked in the back of my closet that I only whip out when it’s pouring outside. Didn’t think I could be pull them off whenever the mood strikes, but the Hunters look great on you so I might have to rethink my ways!

  21. 01.13.2012 / 7:11 pm

    Loving the whole look… The pictures are so ethereal and soft. The boots are kind of badass! 🙂

  22. 01.13.2012 / 8:40 pm

    Kristina, I’m so jealous you’re cake-tasting and just saw on Twitter- registering!! You lucky lady!! You have great taste- so I’m sure you’ll get good stuff!! Anyway, this outfit is so cute and girlie!! I like it! Have fun with all your pre-wedding events!! It only happens once (hopefully) 🙂

  23. 01.13.2012 / 11:38 pm

    So pretty! Almost snagged that cardigan at Target but I’m kind of a cardigan junkie and thought I don’t need a third flowery, similar-shape cardigan. Feel like I should have gotten it. Question: is this just the beautiful lighting or are you also using a certain camera setting to capture this light/look? {trying to learn!} Thanks. happy friday!

    I am completely in love with that bag. As soon as I pulled up this post, I think that is all I saw 🙂 Great look & in case I didn’t say it….I LOVE THAT BAG!
