Party Dress

Haute Hippie dress c/o / Ily Couture necklace (shown in black here) / Gap belt / Call It Spring heels c/o / Chanel bag

I fell in love with this Haute Hippie dress the moment I saw it at the Haute Hippie fall preview. I clearly have a thing for feather skirts (see my party wedding dress here!) The top is a light sweatshirt material and the bottom is clearly where the fun begins. While this dress may seem unrealistic, I am definitely planning on wearing this for many occasions. Adding a blazer to dress it up, booties for Fall, a casual cargo jacket to dress it down...and hey you can't go wrong with a little feather action from time to time.

Two Year Bliss

Today marks my two year anniversary with the hubby. Marriage has been a pretty seamless transition for us. We lived together for a while prior to getting married so there was no huge difference other than the title of husband and wife. Whether you are married or not, below are a few pieces of relationship advice I can offer:

-I know its hard to not stress when you are looking for love, but it does and can happen when you are not looking for it. Paul and I met at work, and the last thing I was thinking of when I started my new job was a potential husband! Things work out in the strangest ways...
-Embrace each other's passion and strengths. When Paul met me he knew I was a major shopper and fashion lover. He is patient while I shop, and I happily put on my Jets gear and attend games with him. We find a middle balance between the things we love and have been lucky enough to collaborate two of our passions into this blog (his being photography!)
-Communicate at all times. Being open and sharing everything with each other is so important. I have amazing family and friends, but at the end of the day my husband is my rock and someone I can turn to for anything at all times.
-Have fun. For us it is exploring new restaurants, stalking dogs in the city (yes we really do), going to the beach, spending time with friends and family or just having a weekend alone to ourselves and doing nothing. Whatever it is that makes the two of you happy make sure to embrace that and share it with one another.
