Outfit of the Day: My Anniversary Dress
So… I’ve gained some weight. I’ve been gaining weight for awhile, but I suddenly had one of those weeks where I realized a lot of my clothes don’t fit me anymore. I had a pretty decent meltdown in my closet. It wasn’t the best feeling. Not so much because I am now fatter, but because I’m finding a lot of my favorite clothing items snug. I love my clothes! We have long, loving relationships. I’m finding new ways to wear older items, which I guess is a natural part of style as it changes anyways. But the day of my three year anniversary with my fiance, I really wanted to feel beautiful and nothing looked the way I wanted it to. Lucky for me… I own a plus size clothing store. I went to where I keep all my merchandise and put this little purple number right on. It was so perfect! I love the pleats, the empire waist, the flirty ruffles at the neckline. It’s also this soft, silky material. I paired it with black flats, a black belt and a chunky gold necklace. I felt so so pretty! My fiance took me out to one of the most amazing dinner and drinks I’ve ever had. He got me a ton of Betsey Johnson jewelry (including one with a mermaid on it!) I bought him a beer kit, and we celebrated all weekend just enjoying each other’s company. It was a perfect weekend. Specially as a last weekend of break before school starts tomorrow!
