|Dress forever 21, Shoes kohls (candies), Earrings gift (nordstrom), Sunburn (real bad)|
When I originally bought this dress the thing that I was drawn to the most was the color and the detailing, especially the scallop edging along the bottom. However once I got it home I realized that it was a pretty short dress, so I bought a slip that I wore with it to make the length a little more modest...
But, it was our anniversary and I had owned this dress for a couple of years now and I was determined to wear it slip-less. Only to reassure myself of its shortness!! The hubby loved it, but we debated wether or not it would be ok in public... I went over and over in my head only to come to this conclusion. It's my anniversary and if there were ever a day to dress sexy, this would be the day. So I'm gonna wear my short dress and not think too much about it!
And what do you know, I felt great, not one awkward slip or blow of the wind. I felt confident and loved that the dress was able to fully spread its wings and show off its scallops (cause thats what all scalloped dresses dream of right?!?)
Happy Tuesday everyone!

This weekend Chris and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary!!
We took off, out of town to stay the night at a green hotel. The intention of getting out of town was fulfilled (even though we were only 15 minutes away) we felt like we were somewhere outside of home, getting away from it all. We spent the day at the pool, lounging, reading and for me getting extremely burnt! Lucky for us there was a Harry Potter marathon on TV so we ventured out to a grocery store and bought supplies for an indoor picnic and laid our spoils out on the bed for us to share. We finished the night off at a great restaurant where we wined and dined and chatted the night away in the warm night air as one of our friends DJ-ed on the outdoor patio. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. On the car ride home we were feeling quite pleased with our night that when the song came on, we had to belt it as loud as we possibly could, thanks FUN! "Toni-i-i-g-h-ttt, we are young!!!!"
It was so much fun to celebrate each other and our wonderful marriage. Reminding ourselves that we chose each other and how great that choice really was!!
I love you Christopher, so excited for the many many years to come and growing old together and discovering everything there is to discover about you!!

It was so much fun to see Chris' brother graduate, along with his wonderful lady. My favorite part was watching the different outfits walk across the stage, it was like my own personal fashion show!
And then there were these fine young gentlemen who were too perfect not to snap some pics. I prefer the one in the middle :)

|Shirt target, Pants gift (yard sale), Shoes thrifted, Watch target|
The husband surprised me with these pants a few weeks back! My friend gave him a heads up that they were sitting at a yard sale so he drove on over and snatched them up for me...what a good man!!
These, again, are my first at a new style of pant. Only this time harem (first time trying palazzo pants here)
To be honest I had to look up a few pics on how to style them. Because of their fit and shape, if not styled right, they could make for an awkward body shape.
But I liked what I found and I styled them up for mother's day!
I love trying new trends, branching out from the normal silhouette and trying something different.
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
