It certainly feels like Emil and I got married just yesterday! Well, maybe not exactly yesterday, but definitely very recently, which is probably why the fact that this year marks our 9th wedding anniversary feels a bit surreal!:) I mean, I can hardly believe it when I say it out loud... we've been married for 9 years, and together for 10 and a half!
Unlike Valentine's Day and Birthdays, when it comes to celebrating our wedding anniversary, we don't have a set tradition. Sometimes we like to get away somewhere romantic, other times, we simply stay home all day watching silly movies and eating way too much pizza, and sometimes, like this year for example, we opt for a fun date night at our favorite restaurant! This year the restaurant of choice was The Farm in Malibu. Super laid back, the food is delicious and the views are amazing! Watching the sun set over the ocean, while sipping on Rosé..., YES PLEASE!
When it comes to choosing a perfect date night look, I usually opt for something very feminine and romantic. This year, I went with a beautiful floral-print Express dress from Express Edition new collection. A huge fan of dresses in general (as you probably already know), what I love about this dress in particular, is the fit and the fabric! Light-as-air, flowy and pretty, this dress is a perfect example of those twirl-worthy numbers I am always talking about! Since I knew that it gets a bit chilly in Malibu, I paired the dress with Express Edition light-pink suede jacket. I always loved combining very feminine pieces with slightly masculine ones, but this combination is definitely one of my personal favorites as of late! The light pink gives this jacket a much softer appeal and in my opinion ties in perfectly with the slightly girly, romantic theme of this outfit! Basically, a win-win kind a situation, and of course you know how much I love that!
What about you guys, do you have any anniversary traditions?
