Hi.

Welcome to our Smitten Merino blog- We hope you enjoy what we have to share.

A Royal affair

It was well and truly the event that stopped the commonwealth (and the US) in their tracks. It was a show stopping moment similar to that of Grace Kelly when she married her prince but this time the Hollywood fairytale was that bit sweeter. It was a recognition of the worlds acceptance of change for the better... and there is plenty more of that to come no doubt from our new woman’s advocate, Duchess of Sussex.

Oh the elegance of that dress accompanied by her stunning veil. Such a timeless combination.

Now on a less serious note, any excuse to dabble in Royal fun is always welcomed in our household and this was certainly an excuse to pop on the pearls and sip tea our of Royal Albert. As it seems it is what the royals are truly, truly good at...  

The Queen however likes to change up her liquid beverages... good for her, we can do that too.

So to prove how well we adapt to Royal life we put together some of our most regal Smitten items (including new arrival Blue Coco Jacket- DIVINE) and chose an extra royal location of the Langham hotel in Melbourne in order to prance about as if Harry had it all covered. It was a dangerous fun as we figured out the Royal lifestyle suited us quite nicely and it in fact must be in our blood!

NAILED IT

The Royal lifestyle was short lived and reality well and truly kicked in and we boarded our Jetstar flight back to Hobart. Upon boarding, a member of our gang spilt an entire drinkbottle in their handbag leaving an array of items floating at armpit level- why must reality be QUITE so harsh. (On a brighter note the beeper on the keys still worked)
