Blue Skies

...that's just what this dress reminds me of.
When I was younger, I always wanted to live in the clouds.
I was certain that's where heaven was...

One of the best pieces of advice S and I received when we were married was that we should be sure to schedule and keep our date nights,
and on Friday and/or Saturday nights, that's just what we do.
After years of being together, I still look forward to our dates.
For now, that's my little piece of heaven
Dress - Winners
Silver Belt (worn backwards) - H&M
Shoes - Modern Vintage
Bracelet - BitterSweet
Earrings - Swarovski available here

Is it just me, or are weeds actually beautiful?
S picked this one for me...
LOL, so much for bringing your date flowers...

He also picked this lovely purple one...

...much prefer a hair piece to a corsage anyway.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

    and lucky you being married AND getting date nights! bah! i am a little jealous, as i have to beg for dates with my man. grr.

  29. Yup, I am! I guess you can tell I'm LDS from my blog :D
    A lil' about me;
    I grew up in Japan speaking both English and Japanese.
    I go to BYUI now, and I've been married for 2 years. I'll be graduating this december. We don't have kids yet! Many people ask. haha

  30. I know it's amazing hoe much a speedy can fit in! Honestly I wondered why it was so heavy today and I realised I had everything in but the kitchen sink! lol. Even some pumps incase I fancied a shoe change xoxox

  31. thanks for passing by girl...eheheh =D love the dress!!

  32. Fantastically beautiful dress. Love the cut and colors.

  33. The dress suits you amazing good! xx

  34. GORGEOUS! this dress totally reminded me of the celine runway dress. : )

  35. Ela! you look beautiful! i'll be sure to take that advice when my times comes to get married! its so important especially when the dating honeymoon is over!!! enjoy the rest of your monday! :)

  36. you posed in the perfect location for that dress...the beautiful field and the blue skies are lovely with your dress!!

  37. The dress looks great. I just came back from a florida vacation I saw a lot of these styles out there. Nice pics =)

  38. Yup.. wish I owned that dress. And I LOVE that you still have date nights!!

  39. Beautiful! You looked gorgeous for your date night! I love to hear stories about you and your husband!! You seem so happy with him!!

    You look beautiful (I had to say it again)


  40. That dress is so pretty, I love how romantic it looks & that color is beautiful! I wish I could have had those silver leggings for the party! LOL. Unfortunately, shopping in my town is pretty much non-existent. Oh well, hopefully won't have to think about costumes again till Halloween!

  41. Great photos. You look really beautiful. I hope your week started off well.

  42. lol I used to watch Golden girls with my grandma! She was/is Blanche and I'm still Rose.. ;)


  43. You look beautiful and how sweet of your hubby to pick a few flowers for you!! What a perfect scenic location to go with your gorgeous dress. :)

  44. So beautiful & how lovely to have special dates!
    I hope S didn't force you smile...can't help it after you told me the behind the scene story...haha!

  45. Gorgeous dress! I love the tie-dye effect but it doesn't look too hippy-ish. The effect is actually really elegant. I think the husband and I need to start organizing date nights as well. We're always so pooped by the time we get home from work, but there shouldn't really be an excuse!

  46. What a sweet date night look! Loving your new hair!


Penny for your thoughts?
Hmm...let's make that an I.O.U ;)
