At the end of August it was ‘the’ big event for my boyfriend Liam, as he finally passed out from the Army Infantry! And to celebrate, they have a little parade up at the camp where he was living in Yorkshire. Living down south, this meant I had a long 5 hour drive up there on my own, but it was worth it to stand there so proud of him!
We were lucky with the weather, as it was pouring it down with rain when we got to the Parade Square but then the sun was shining once it started. The actual parade was about an hour long and consisted of lots of marching about and orders being shouted. It was a bit bizarre but also amusing. I had no idea what the orders were that were being shouted at them! It took me a while to spot Liam in the group but thanks to the excellent optical zoom on my camera, I found him and took tonnes of photos. I was really impressed with how well trained the soldiers all were, they were perfectly synchronised with their marching etc and it was funny to see Liam taking orders and doing as he’s told.
I wore the outfit that I did a blog post on last month, which was a nudey pink dress from ASOS and matching New Look heels and clutch bag. The dress was backless which meant no bra, and it was a bit low cut, but luckily I don’t have much going on in that area anyway. It had lacey shoulders and a sheer lined skirt, and a cute little bow at the back. I used a wand to create wavy hair and I even used my high end Chanel and Estee Lauder etc make up which I save for special occasions. Liam wore his smart uniform which was really thick so he was boiling hot, and he also had to wear his massive had and sexy(!) trouser braces. We didn’t get too many photos of us together, but here’s some from the day.
I’m so excited that he’s all official now, the only bad thing is that now he’s off to Kenya for 3 months over Christmas.. boo hoo! But I’m now a very proud ‘Army WAG’ and am so happy for him! Look how snazzy they looked…
