Last year Adam and I were traveling on Valentine’s Day, so we had to celebrate a few days later. We quickly realized that’s the way to celebrate Valentine’s Day because you get great deals on all the flowers, candy, cards, and gifts! Plus, restaurants aren’t nearly as crowded since all the happy couples tend to go out the day of. So, this past weekend we had our Valentine’s date night. I was so excited because I’ve been saving this outfit for our dinner date. Naturally as soon as I bought this skirt I thought of Valentine’s day because of its beautiful berry color. I wore it for Christmas Eve too with a black top and it looked just as beautiful! I’ve been wanting a fluffy tulle skirt for soooo long now. They’re so girly and fun! I’ve seen quite a few girls dress them down with a graphic tee and some sneakers, but I’m not quite sure I could pull that off. When I wear it I feel so fancy, though, so I tend to gravitate toward a pair of heels anyway. Funny enough, I felt pretty “extra” because I ended up wearing it to a sports bar at one point. I was joking with Mandi that if wearing a glorified tutu to a sports bar didn’t describe me perfectly, I don’t know what would. I like to keep it casually classy and chic. 😉

How was your Valentine’s day? Or did you celebrate Galentine’s with your girlfriends? Either way, I hope it was great!

Yesterday was our first wedding anniversary! I can’t even believe it’s already been a year since we said “I do!” They say your first year is the hardest, but honestly this past year has been amazing. After having a long distance relationship for the better part of four years, it has been and still is wonderful to spend so much time with Adam. I hope God continues to bless us in our marriage and all the years to come.

For our anniversary, we decided to enjoy a delicious dinner at an Italian restaurant. We also got to cut into the top tier of our wedding cake (something Adam has been looking forward to since the day after the wedding).  We took extra precautions when wrapping our cake last year, and it paid off because the cake was just as delicious a year later! Our anniversary weekend was so fun and special. I can’t wait to celebrate all the years to come.

Adam actually picked my out my outfit (with some guidelines, of course). I think he did a really good job! What do you think? These heels are one of my absolute favorite pairs, and they’re so comfortable.  I wish I had more opportunities to wear heels because I would definitely rock these more often. As you know, I’m in love with my Chico’s jeans, as well. I also featured this blouse in a post last fall.

Date nights are seriously my favorite, and this one was definitely extra special!
