what i wore [anniversary dinner]

First off thank you for all your sweet comments. Not only did I love reading them but they made the husband feel really good about the post he wrote.

You know what he told me today?

"Maybe I'll guest post more often."

What do you think? I'm thinking definitely. :)

As you know, yesterday we celebrated two years (which is crazy by the way) and I decided that I didn't want to go to a romantic-italian-expensive place. I wanted to do something different. Something like Vietnamese food. (my current food obsession.)

 So we dressed up (or I did) and did a little photo shoot before heading over to dinner.

from head to toe:
headband: rouge & whimsy --not yet in the shop--
necklace: christmas present
cardi: target w/ vintage buttons
dress: anthro!
belt: old navy from forevers ago
socks: target
shoes: bc shoes

 when I came downstairs the husband looked me up and down. 

"Are socks in sandals in now? Is that a look?"

I just smiled.
"I've been wanting to try it." 

[what do you guys think? 
Elsie from A Beautiful Mess & Ilene from Much Love, Illy pull it off like all the time.]

Whoa close up ;)

And where we went to dinner-- fancy place eh? Love the Christmas lights in July. 

isn't he cute?

Pictures of the food didn't happen. We ate it too fast because it was delicious. 
I'll try my hand at food photography next time. :)

And don't think I forgot or anything... but if you are "killing birds is not art" I'm going to send you an electronic mail because you are due for some Seattle love! Congrats!

And thank you to everyone who entered. I'm sure there will be another giveaway soon ;)

Happy Wednesday!
