This weekend my boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary. We actually don't really know what date we officially started dating so we made one up. I typically buy something new for an occasion like this, but decided to challenge myself to wear items from my closet. Most of the time I dress for women and not for men. I wanted to find something that was a balance between something he would like and still made me feel like myself. I ended up wearing pieces that have been in my closet for years, but still seem to be relevant for the upcoming fall trends. Overall, we were both happy with the outfit and my pocket book was the happiest of us all.

Enter here to win a Marc by Marc Jacobs tote from Shop It To Me.  Today is the last day to win!

oh sexy sexy! loving the leopard print dress on you! i felt sort of tired of leopard print last year but now i really want a coat... have seen one at this swedish shop monki that i am obsessed with. p.s. thinking this outfit would have looked really sweet with a classic tan trench tied over top, do you have one? or are they not quite as big in the states as they are in the UK?

Stephanie said...

Love the outfit! great bag & I love the heels :]

I love that you mentioned dressing for women over men. I know I'm not winning any guys over with harem pants, but I dress for myself and ultimately for women too, because they're more likely to understand women's trends. You looked amazing and I'm sure he agreed!
