What I Wore | Anniversary Outfit


Last week was our fourth wedding anniversary! So to celebrate, we ditched the kids and went out for a lovely meal and a few cheeky cocktails.

I really miss the days when I could take a couple of hours getting dolled up before a night out, so this time my mum had the kids for tea which gave us time to get ready properly, no stress, no rush, it was bliss!

I’d decided I wanted to get a new dress because every time I go out, I go to my wardrobe and can never find anything I can wear. So a few days earlier I went shopping but as is always the case when you’re actually looking for something, of course I couldn’t find anything.

So I went home and looked online but still couldn’t find anything! In the end, on the day of our anniversary I went shopping again in a last minute panic and thankfully found two dresses that I liked! I didn’t have time to even try them on so I bought both and just prayed that one of them would look OK.

Well, sods law I loved both of them and then couldn’t decided which one to wear! The first one was this one from River Island but the one I ended up choosing to wear is this one from Urban Outfitters. I think the cut out detail on the back swung it for me, I’m a sucker for a bit of back detail on a dress! I also love the vintage floral pattern, just gorgeous!

My only concern with this dress is that it is so SHORT! I found myself thinking, can I really wear a dress this short? It’s not something I’d usually do but you know what, there will come a time very soon when I really am too old to wear things like this, I’m only 28 for goodness sake and I don’t think I look that bad in it…sod it I thought, I’m wearing it!

OK the legs are a bit ridiculously pale but I’m not one for fake tan so I’ve had to learnt to just embrace the porcelain look, ha!

Anyway, we had a lovely night out. Here’s to many more happy years together!

    Firstly happy anniversary, here’s to many many more years of love and friendship. Secondly, no no the dress is not too short. 1. you are still in your 20s, so you can do what you want. 2. I am in my 30s and do what I want. 3. You have fab legs and I bet your husband loved seeing your pins for your date night.

    Great choice, it’s a cute dress. I love the modish vintage vibe, it really looks fab! Thanks for linking up with #MumsThatSlay Yvadney x
