ohhh, shiny! {a thrift style thursday post}

Anyway, this week’s TST I just could not miss. I am not one to wear a lot of metallic clothing so I went with OHH SHINY stuff such as my sequined cardigan, my metallic jelly flats, and my blingy necklace.

new year’s glitter! {thrift style thursday}

If there ever were a time when you’re encouraged to wear all the glitter, sparkle, sequins, etc in your wardrobe – it’s without a doubt New Years. I am still looking for that perfect shimmery sequin dress or top, so here I did my best with what I have and I think it turned out not too bad…what do you think?

anniversary celebration

on this day 4 years ago, I married Wesley. We got married at the Hillsborough, NC courthouse and our ‘wedding’ unconventionality didn’t stop there – I wore a bright pink dress and Wesley’s “best man” was a woman!

We try and celebrate our special day but because of the timing, our anniversary usually falls on or around thanksgiving day. We got lucky this year that Thanksgiving is a bit later than usual, so on Friday we decided to go out 2 days early. We had a fantastic dinner date at the Angus Barn in Raleigh. It’s THE restaurant in the area if you’re celebrating.

here’s what I wore ūüėČ I really liked my outfit and wanted to share.

Angus barn is a huge restaurant! My favorite time to go is close to Christmas, they go all out decorating and I love it!

When you leave, they give you the recipe for their famous Angus Barn chocolate chess pie. Words cannot describe how delicious this pie is.

I hadn’t planned on buying anything but went into Target looking for shampoo for hubby and left with this super cute skirt – and it was on clearance! I loved the color (mustard) and the fun print right away, when I put it on, I really loved the style too ūüėČ
