Date Night

It's official; my body hates me. After being sick with the flu on Friday, feeling better Saturday, feeling worse again Sunday, and better yesterday, I woke up feeling horrible again today. I guess that flu shot was for nothing after all. 

I wore this on Saturday to go out to dinner with T.J. to celebrate our one year anniversary after I made us reschedule on Friday night. I've always been pretty clueless when it comes to relationships, so I'm amazed he's kept me around for this long. Seeing as he spent the night before taking care of me, it's safe to say that I'm a lucky girl. In all honesty, neither of us actually remembers what day our actually anniversary is, but we know it was somewhere around last week. We celebrated with good food, Dairy Queen, and by finishing the season of Firefly. We've been watching it the past few weeks and both became pretty big fans instantly. Considering our interests and TV obsession, I'm amazed it took us this long to watch it. 

Dress (worn as top): Modcloth
Skirt: Romwe
Shoes: UO
Bag: Thrifted
Belt: Vintage
Watch: Target


  1. Oh no, girly-FEEL BETTER! It's time for illness to be done-spring is no time for such nonsense. Happy anniversary to the two of you! Glad your boy took good care of you :) I really love this combination. That green/blue is a really lovely color. I love LOVE your shoes (I think I said that last time you wore them, but really it needs to be said again). Plus, your bag is so darling! Have I hit on everything yet? :)

  7. Happy anniversary! Kevin and I don't know our actual date either but we just picked May 1st because it's easy to remember. I guess now that we're married it doesn't matter? Anyway, I love this look! So many girly details, I especially love the lace on top. I hope you're feeling better, I hate being sick!

  10. Dwwwa, that is just so cute. I love that you two are watching Firefly, that how my husband wooed me. (Smart man, nothing beats Firefly!) That just sounds like a really cute night, laid back and fun. what an awful bummer about being sick again, you have had it rough this year!

    I do love the date night outfit, it's so flirty with the sheer overlay on the skirt! (Date night and short skirt, oh yeah. With Firefly,can't forget that. Man, I love that show. You should talk about it some more so I can squeal like the fangirl that I am and we'll all agree how awesome of a show it is.)

  11. Hahaha, I always considered flue shots to be pointless. Hope you feel like a crispy cookie soon!
    And, congrats on the whole year ^_^ I'm sure you'll be happy and together for a loong time :D
