I am usually not very indecisive about what to wear…however tonight is no ordinary date night. We are celebrating 10 years of marriage! I HAVE to look stunning for my wonderful husband! So…this means…I need YOUR help! I have narrowed it down to 3 options…all which will look fabulous with my new favorite accessory…I mean really…what DOESN’T go with diamond earrings!? This week’s F(5) is a little different but like I said…I just can’t decide. This is so not like me!
My first option is actually a LBD from high school. Praise the Lord it still fits AND it’s slimming! It is a sleeveless v-neck velvet dress…a little on the short side but not too short. I like to pair it with this sparkly black fly-away cardigan, black tights and tall black boots but for tonight I will probably wear heels. Which ones…I haven’t even gotten there yet. Anyway…that’s option #1…what do you think?
Option #2 is this gorgeous brocade jacket embroidered with silver throughout by Isaac Mizrahi. I love the color…sort of a deep raspberry. It looks fabulous paired with my Superfine 110 wool trousers from J.Crew (one of my husband’s favorites). I’ve also worn the velvet dress from option 1 under it and that looks good, too. I THINK I want to wear a dress…this is 10 years afterall…but I’m not sure.
Option# 3 I have only worn twice and I LOVE it! I’ve been trying to think of a reason to wear it again. It is an all-over sequin dress (LOVE myself a sequin) in a blush by Lauren Conrad. The color is subtle enough that it isn’t too much but I just love the sparkles…so subtle yet so pretty. It’s also a great excuse to wear those sparkly platforms!
Okay…now…I just need you to VOTE! What is your favorite option? This is my FIRST Poll and I can’t think of anything more fun! 🙂
I also just HAD to share the sweetest anniversary card we have ever received from our sweet little Em. She drew a picture of mama & daddy as a bride and groom and thanked Daddy for fixing cars and Mama making “dinr”. Isn’t she the sweetest? These past few days I have been so overwhelmed with God’s love and grace in our life. These amazing children, the love He’s given the 2 of us, the grace He has showered us with…it’s enough to make all of the difficulties I face everyday just melt away. God is so good! And tonight…we celebrate His goodness!
Thanks for all of you help! Can’t wait to see what the verdict is so I can start accessorizing! 🙂
So~~~~what did you wear? Just seeing this now. I hope that you post pics. Where did you eat? Any great GF food?? XO
I wore the sequins with the sparkly shoes and Nathan loved it! 🙂 He said “I’ve never seen that before!?” 😉 Forgot to take pics :/. We went to Reds in Rockford and I had the Pear & Stilton Salad with grilled chicken…SO good! Creme brule for dessert! 🙂 The only bad thing…I ate too much! It was a wonderful evening! 🙂
