Last month I had the pleasure of joining the Kilkenny Rose ladies for Afternoon Tea one sunny Saturday on the eve of the selection day. We all headed to Lyrath Estate, just outside the city where we were greeted and ushered into a private drawing room for our own personal tea experience. Although this was only my second time experiencing such miniature sweet and savoury treats, I am a self confessed sweet tooth connoisseur. The whole experience was very relaxed as we chatted away excitingly and gossiped like little old ladies five times our age in all our dressed grandeur.
Unlike my previous similar tea experience and accompanying attire way back in January for my Birthday (read here), the sun beamed happily through the windows as we explored the grounds and gardens to walk off the sins of calorie past. I love any excuse to whip out this light mint tulle skirt which I picked up on eBay for a steal at €7 (similar here) and of course these LK Bennett shoes will be joining my Port Laoise adventures likewise come this Thursday. The embellished shell tank top is from Topshop as well as these 'Communion-esque' frilly socks.
I am so busy this week finalising outfits for the Rose of Tralee Regionals which begin this Thursday coming and am so excited to share this wonderful experience with all my Yucky Duck followers. It is a very special period of my life and one I am so grateful to be chosen to represent Kilkenny at an international stage. I have two more posts before Thursday which will include a sneak peak at my outfits, accessories, jewellery and of course my elusive evening wear in conjunction with Valerie O'Shea Designs. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter to follow all the style an craic at the festival as I see it this weekend.
Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
