Three Cheers for 3 Years

Top: Target  |  Skirt: Loft, thrifted  |  Belt: H&M  |  Necklace: Nordstrom  |  Wedges: Target

Day 8's Challenge: Mix fancy and casual.  I'm not sure if this counts, but I gave it an earnest attempt.  I think the statement necklace really jazzes up an otherwise normal tee and skirt combo, yeah?  Mental note: get more statement necklaces.

In other news, today the husband and I hit 3 years of marriage!  I mentioned on Twitter that we celebrated this past weekend with a steak dinner and a sunset view, and we topped it off with white velvet cake.  Rule #1 of marriage: You have to eat good food on your anniversary.  If not for an excuse to eat good food, why bother getting married?

  2. Congrats on your anniversary!  I definitely agree about the good food part.  My husband loves food, and whether we eat in or go out, it's always a great occasion.

    Any pencil skirt to me is dressy and a striped shirt is the definition of casual, so you definitely nailed today's challenge.  I like the way the turquoise necklace contrasts with the coral.

  9. My rule is: eat good food every day, otherwise what's the point of life?? ;)
    I LOVE this outfit, Audrey!! The statement necklace in turquoise compliments the red/coral skirt very well. It's so summery with just a touch of nautical (eek!). You look fab. And congrats to you and the Mr. for three years. May it be the best year yet!

  11. I think I need to borrow this whole outfit!! I love everything about it!  I am always looking for a great thrifted skirt like this, but they are just so scarce in my area for some reason.  The necklace just makes this whole outfit! :)

  12. This is darling! Actually, one of the later prompts is to wear statement jewelry. You're ahead of the game!

  13. 100% linen.  You are GOOD, Leigh.  P.S. I realized sometime today that I think I stole almost this exact look from you subconsciously!

  15. Congrats to you & your husband on 3 years of marriage and this August marks your 4th year. It will be 7 years for us, this coming June. =)

    Very cute outfit. I love all the pieces, every single one. I especially love the skirt, wedges & necklace. I need more statement necklaces too, by the way.

    Stop by & start following me, Audrey. I am ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST FANS.


    Thank You. =) Ada.
