Where do I start?

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.

OH and I

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.

    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

    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?
