This past weekend was my husband's and my 11-year dating anniversary. Eleven years! It's hard to believe it's been that long! Courtesy of eleven years worth of date nights, one of our favorite things to do is go out to eat. So, when we celebrate such special occasions, we always visit a new restaurant. We like to get dressed up, have fun, and order lots of food and vino.
This year, my husband -- being the sweet gentleman he is -- planned the evening at Cafe Marmotte (French is one of my favorite cuisines). While he did that, I was carefully selecting an outfit. I gravitate toward anniversary outfits that are romantic yet contemporary -- and versatile enough for other functions. Luckily, I stumbled into Garbarini for the first time while shopping in Cherry Creek North. It's such an awesome boutique with a range of labels, from high-end to super-affordable. The anniversary dress I found there -- this pale pink Grecian-style number -- was on sale for $99 (down from $495!). The flow-y, silky fabric is perfect for dressy summer nights, and it's as comfortable as a nightgown.
To complement my new frock, I added only heels and a bag. Since we were doing dinner versus a fancy event, I avoided overdoing with excess accessories. I wanted to keep it elegant yet playful. These "Rockstud" Valentino pumps and this gray Lanvin tote accomplish that while keeping everything within the same soft pink and gray color family.
