Well I’ll start where I left off – our anniversary. I am incredibly lucky that I am married to an extremely romantic, generous man. He was so giddy about the day unfolding and all his various surprises he could barely contain himself! He even created a playlist for me with little clues leading to my surprise gift!
We headed out to dinner to our favorite ‘special occasion’ restaurant – Bacchanalia. They do a superb seasonal five course tasting menu and the food is exquisite. And how cute – they even surprised us with a little cake!
I wore my Ted Baker taxi cab dress which I adore – it feels elegant yet quirky – it’s so fun to wear. This exact version is no longer available but the print must have been so popular they have released a new version here. The jacket is a Zara tuxedo jacket from the sale and the wedge boots are also Zara.
Before we left for our night out we exchanged gifts. I’m a very lucky girl. Apparently fifteen years of marriage is a big deal.
I wish I’d known – I thought I was being particularly thoughtful with my gift of a wooly hat and a pair of socks – I kid you not!
On Friday night we headed out again to take Mike for a farewell dinner. Another fabulous restaurant and quickly becoming one of my favorites – The Optimist. They even had frogs legs on the menu which my daring Husband enjoyed. I had the most delicious oysters followed by the most incredible haddock I have ever eaten – and I assure you I know my cod and haddock!
After much debate as to what to wear, and given my late night on Thursday I opted for comfort in the end. This is the Zara pyjama suit from last season that I snapped up in the sale, worn with my white heels.
Finally I’ll leave you with a couple of daytime outfits. The first was from Friday, shopping in the mall with Mike.
Jeans – Diesel Fayza Jogg Jeans // Sneakers – Golden Goose (similar here) // Tank – AllSaints (old) // Jacket – Zara
And yesterday for our first swim meet of the season!
Cap – J.Crew // Jeans – H&M grey tapered boyfriend // T-shirt – Gap 35% off till 9/24 with code THANKYOU // Sweater – Boden // Sneakers – Adidas Gazelles
Now we’re off for a slap up breakfast before taking Mike to the airport – it’s been a brilliant visit and now I’m in the mood for planning some trips back to the UK again!
Sounds like you’ve had a wonderful 15th wedding anniversary Joanna & wow what a gorgeous ring to mark the occasion. Loving all your outfits, you’ve reminded me I need to wear my Zara pyjama top which I also brought in the sales, it looks fab on you with the matching trousers x
Cartier? I think Paul and David should hang out…often. 😉
Yes but it is a very nice cashmere beanie and a very nice pair of socks. So well done you ;o)
And lucky lucky you for having such a wonderful loving hubby with such fabulous taste. Might have to stick this post under my Grumps’s nose some time.
Ooh – liking the baseball cap actually – can I pull this off without looking like a little Chinese tourist I wonder?
