The boyfriend and I still date. I mean, we actually call going out for dinner, drinks, or a movie "a date." This perplexes some of our friends and family, considering we are way beyond the point of casual dating. Four and a half years into our relationship and everyone gives us a funny look when we say we are going on a date together. I mainly use these events on Friday or Saturday nights to get a little dolled up. And he does the same ;)





Halogen Pleat Shoulder Cardigan - Deep Gem. Highly, highly recommend! I want more.
White Tank: Forever 21 (Love 21)
Black Lace Skirt: Forever 21. I need more skirts! I wear this one to death.
Shoes: Nordstrom Rack
Necklace: Nordstrom, purchased eons ago.
Pewter Ring: Aldo



Ricky watched me get ready the whole time, and I had to shoo him away while I was taking pictures. I also have a puppy named Lucy, but she's camera shy ;)  (Stop laughing Katie!)

So where is a good place to buy skirts, because I need more in my wardrobe! I hope you all had a wonderful Friday!

  2. Mikaela: I agree, it is fun! Just because you're in a long-term relationship doesn't mean you can't dress up for each other ;)
