24 years later and we’re still giggling

Yesterday was a little anniversary that my husband and I like to celebrate! It was 24 years since we first became an item and had our first kiss in The Central Bar, St. Andrews. I lost a year too somewhere – I spent all yesterday saying it was 23 years!

To celebrate we headed out to our favorite Mexican joint. I had too much tequila šŸ™‚

Husband and II wore my fabulous new TopShop sandals – I LOVE them – I was nervous about the flatform but they feel great on and I love the extra height – they feel dressy. The jeans are new from J.Crew – a lovely light summery wash and they are super soft and stretchy – size down – I’m in a 28″! The detail in this top hasn’t come out very well in this photo – but take a look here it’s beautiful and gorgeous quality linen.

I also wore my simple septum ring for the first time – I love it and fortunately so does my husband. My kids are staying firmly on the fence about it – I think I’ve put them off piercings for life šŸ˜‰ You can check out my Pinterest board here for some beautiful images that inspired me.

SeptumEarlier in the day I was running around with various errands and after my AllSaints post I decided to wear another of their dresses that I adore. This is the Pia from a couple of years ago. So easy to wear and it generated plenty of compliments. This one is very similar and is in the sale plus an extra 20% off with code Extra20.

Okay I’m off to walk off the margaritas with the dogs – it is a stunning day here in Atlanta – enjoy your long weekend if you are in the UK!!

      Thanks Michelle – your opinion means a lot! I know many have said nothing – which I am taking as a ‘not impressed’ šŸ˜‰ I just shared some images of women with septum piercings so I hope people can see how beautiful it can look instead of being harsh and aggressive! xx

    Looking good, lady, and that’s a very cute picture of you both! I love the subtlety of the new piercing, I wasn’t sure if I’m honest, but now I see it, I think it’s great! I’ve just discovered that almost 20 years after I took the bar out, I still have a pierced belly button, so I’m joining you and having a mini mid life crisis by proudly sporting a new one!! See what you’ve done?! ;-D xx

      It is a very polarizing piercing and I think it has some very negative associations of rebellion through the years. I have become more and more aware though of how beautiful it can look – it is all about context! So thrilled about the navel:) What next? xx
