Last year, I married my best friend, lover, partner, and biggest supporter AKA the MOST-handsome-man-I-know AKA my FAVORITE-person-in-the-world AKA “BIG D” (I’m little D!). Yesterday was our one year wedding anniversary. Here we are last year on our wedding day:
And in the Alleyway behind Cafe Lurcat last year:
…and now you know why he’s “BIG D” and why I’m “little D.“
And today, we celebrated our 1st Year Anniversary on Cafe Lurcat’s patio:
I fall in love with him more and more everyday. Each time I ask him to do something new, like for instance “Will you be my photographer for PS Bananas?” he never blinks or questions me why. He just says – OK – where and when and how long? And then off we go to do whatever it is I just suggested. And then we laugh and giggle and have fun doing whatever it is.
My 1 Year Anniversary outfit:
And the beautiful open back! (Forgive the back-fat!)
And of course the little deets that make everything special:
Didn’t I tell you that these Seychelle’s shoes go with just about everything? And the scarf print on this dress? SWOON!
There are so many wonderful things about hubby, one of which is that HE GETS ME! I mean, shopping for women’s jewelry can be tough. He’s so in-tuned with what makes me light up, he’s so RIGHT ON with a gift for our anniversary. Here I am opening my anniversary gift from hubby, I’m wearing an affordable faux-turquoise ring from Aldo:
My little Jazzy-poo (my boxer) trying to figure out what all the commotion is about: Hubby surprises me with a beautiful Turkish Turquoise ring purchased from Omorphia Jewelry Boutique in Excelsior. IN LOVE. AGAIN. Hubby did good – don’t you think?
What I’m Wearing:
Olivaceous sheer scarf-print open-back maxi (sorry – I could not find this dress online available for retail purchase!) but I purchased mine locally at Covered Boutique in Uptown – they might still have some left! // Racerback Sportsbra with contrast stitching from Forever21 // Hanky Panky “Mayhem Stripes” boy shorts // Michael Kors White Polyurethane and Goldtone Mixed Metal watch // Vintage Gold & Silver Collar necklace // Anniversary gift from hubby: Bora Turkish Turquoise Ring purchased from Omorphia // Dragonfly drop earrings with orange stones by Camba Jewelry by Krissy Krull can be found at Drama Boutique in Edina // Chloe sunglasses similar here //
I mention my underthings as part of this ensemble, because in an open-back dress like this, it’s always risky to try to hide your underthings OR even riskier to go *au-natural*. Rather than worry about that at all, I decided to go *WHAT-THE-HEY* and found pretty underthings that are meant to be seen – in complimentary colors to my dress. There result – easy and comfy, and carefree – the way the dress was meant to be enjoyed!
PS – I’m TOTALLY bananas over celebrating anniversaries!
