Yesterday evening, Christopher and I celebrated two years together. I donned some celebratory polka-dots with a little extra black just to round out my color scheme, and we went out to dinner. Christopher, I hope we have many more anniversaries together--I love sharing with you our laughter, our debates about literature and politics, jokes about hippopotamuses and monkeys, bicycle rides in the sunshine and snow, afternoons reading on sunny porches, coffee every morning together, and an obsession with repeating the same joke 300 times in a row. Which is to say: I love you and I hope we have countless repetitive jokes and bicycle rides in our future.

Too cute. I love that shirt, your polka dots look like they could be dressed up or down. I'm in love with H&M and I'm so sad when I have to go months without shopping there. Great look overall!

Yay for 2 years! :) What a great outfit to celebrate in---so romantic and lovely!

Demy said...

Aww congratulations on the 2year anniversary! This is awesome! It's hard to believe, but I'm really really glad about you being happy, because I've been reading your blog for months and I have seen that you're a special person, who loves fashion, but doesn't try to show off a fake self, like so many famous fashion bloggers do. So I'm really glad about that!

Did you celebrate in this outfit? I guess that your hubby could not stop looking at you! Am I right? Cause you're really stunning! Your polka dot shirt is really pretty and it looks awesome with this gorgeous skirt! Everything seems to be flattering on your body! And you have beautiful legs as well! :D I like that you're not unhealth skinny, but you have a perfect healthy body! :D Rock on, you're amazing and I'm a huge fan! :D

It's funny but I guess, the shop called "forever 21" is the same like here in Germany "forever 18"...because of the legal age?!

Miranda said...
