Outfit of the Day: Our Anniversary Weekend

This past week Tim and I celebrated our four year wedding anniversary


Our anniversary was smack dab in the middle of the week but we decided to go out and celebrate at one of our favorite local Italian restaurants anyway. Then when the weekend rolled around on Saturday, we decided to make a day of it going out to lunch and playing a round of indoor ghost themed miniature golf at a place called Ghost Golf. We were also planning on going to the movies and seeing The Witch but we missed the show time. By then it was pouring rain so we decided to save it for Sunday. And so I have an extra bonus third Outfit of the Day for this post!



Outfit of the Day:
Our Anniversary:

The day of our Anniversary I came home from work and found this dress waiting for me. It was a present from Tim! I threw it on straight from the package even though I didn't have time to steam it first. I was so excited to wear it! This is the Trashy Diva Streetcar dress in Forget Me Not Floral. I tried this one on when we were in New Orleans but didn't have the money at the time to buy it and have been pining for it ever since even though I have this print in the Lupe dress. What can I say, I'm such a sucker for the Streetcar dresses! I paired this dress with a vintage black beaded cardigan which I got a few years ago from Etsy and black mary jane heels by Softspots which I got several years ago from Zappos. For a finishing touch I wore this with some large retro style light blue floral earrings from Forever 21. I really love how the light blue in the earrings brings out the blue in the Forget Me Not Floral print.

Saturday:

On Saturday Tim and I were planning on going out for indoor Ghost Golf and then to see the Witch. I had a dress all picked out for the occasion but when the day rolled around I really was in the mood to wear this Trashy Diva Honey Sun dress in Steel Magnolias instead. It was a rainy grey day and I thought the grey in the dress would really match well with the weather. Plus, since it was a cold day I was really in the mood to layer up and have been waiting for the perfect chance to wear this dress layered up all winter. I paired this with a burgundy beaded cardigan by Free People which I found on ebay earlier this year, a grey knit fascinator also from ebay from a couple years ago, grey tights which I got from Nordstrom earlier this year, and a pair of Chelsea Crew heels which I also got from found ebay I think from last year. To add to the layers, and make this dress a little more modest, I wore a grey cami underneath (also from ebay from earlier this year). For a finishing touch I wore this with a pair of silver sparkle dot earrings I got from our local vintage style shop, Vintage Alley, a couple years ago.

Sunday:

While we were planning on watching The Witch on Saturday it turns out there weren't too many show times for it in our area so we ended up deciding to save the movie for Sunday. I didn't mind. This gave me the chance to wear the dress I originally had planned on wearing, a Trashy Diva Audrey dress in black velvet. I paired this with a black cardigan from the Gap from several years ago, my black mary jane Softspot heels, and a pair of mauve ankle socks. For a finishing touch I wore a black sequined headband and black 1920's style drop earrings though I forgot to take the close up shots of this.
