Outfit Post : Saturday, September 4

These photos were from yesterday when Mike and I adventured out around the country. We had a yummy lunch and then we had a fun time doing a silly secret activity (that I'll blog about this week!). Then we headed off to take some photos. We're using a new 50mm/f1.8 lens on the camera so some of the photos are a bit blurry as it's manual focus and we haven't quite mastered it (but we love it! The depth of field is phenomenal!). I'm also a bit grumpy in these photos, and by a bit I mean really. I wasn't a fan of this outfit at all as it wasn't the least bit flattering but whatever, I wore it anyway. I've been feeling like I'm back in my style slump and even black cardigans can't pull me out of it! (I haven't worn it at all recently!).

Anyway, here are some photos for the day.

dress: target, chanel brooch: diy, flats: kmart

Today is our 9 month anniversary! Nothing extravagant, I know, but it's nice to celebrate the small things! Someone asked me to make a post about our relationship and all that jazz so I'll be doing that later today at some point. I've done something similar in the past but I never pass up a good ol' chance to rehash the early days! :D

We're not sure what we're going to get into today but since I didnt have to work last night, we're pretty well rested. I'll be sure to take photos of whatever it is though because I'm bringing back the Daily Photo posts! (I promised to keep up with them when I moved back from NYC but I failed. eep! I've been feeling sort of lazy lately as a blogger!)


  1. 9 months? you guys look like youve been together forever! in a nice way obviously!

  2. I love those pictures how you're in a really smart dress next to a scruffy tractor lol. It's awesome

  3. lois mae: we dated 4 years ago so its not like we've really only been dating 9 months, but i totally agree with what you said! feels like we've been together like 5 years! i'm so glad our paths crossed again :D

  4. I LOVE outfit! I would so wear it :)

  5. You look great in this outfit! I really like it.


  6. I really wanted to buy that dress when it was in the store, but I didn't because I can't pull off sleeves like that. My arms are too jiggly, lol, but yours looks super adorable! It's like a nice little frame for your tattoos :)

    Can't wait for your secret excursion post!


  7. love your outfit! The yellow contrasts nicely against your hair : )

  8. I think the dress looks gorgeous on you! And eh, I hate feeling like your in a clothing rut. You don't look it, though!

    Happy anniversary! My boyfriend and I did something little to celebrate each month leading up to our first year anniversary. We just hit the two year mark :) I hope you guys have a wonderful day!


  9. happy 9 months (aka 5 years) darling ;D! i can't wait to meet that special guy and have an awesome relationship like you have. you guys look so amazingly happy together. :)!

    and you look mighty fabulous in that dress. don't doubt your figure because it's always flattering- no matter what you wear! <3

  10. you look cute in everything you wear, lady! but i totally understand... i have this same dress, and while i adore that mustard colour, i just feel like it's not flattering on my body at all. :( i definitely think if the skirt part weren't so stiff and was a little more flowy and free in the hips, i would look a lot better in it. and i'm in the worst fashion rut ever right now... i feel like the cooler months will help a little, though, since i tend to layer a lot!

  11. well congrats to the both of y'all on the 9 month anni! :) y'all are so cute together! love, love the outfit btw! beautiful pictures. :)


  12. Congrats to the both of you. I never would have guessed that you and Mike have only been together for 9 months. You really seem made for one another and that's an awesome thing:) Your photos are so pretty - what a beautiful setting. I love your dress. The mustard yellow color looks lovely on you.

  13. Love the idea of adding a brooch to a dress like this, too cute!


  14. congratulations on your anniversary! you two are the cutest!


HEY! Thanks for dropping by. xo KB
