date night

romper: Plato's Closet (originally Forever 21) // flower crown: DIY // sandals: Steve Madden // bangle: Banana Republic
 This is the outfit I wore for my anniversary dinner with Dago. We went to Home Slice for some pizza, which is where we had our very first date (which was almost a year before we actually became a couple!). Then we headed over to Tiff's Treats for tiffwiches, which are the yummiest ice cream sandwiches made with freshly baked cookies. I got peanut butter chocolate chip and he got regular chocolate chip. Anyone thinking of moving to Austin should come try the food. You'll never leave, I swear. (Unless you're a crazy person like Lynette!)

Before we went out, we exchanged letters that we wrote to each other. Since we're both tight on money after moving, we're putting off actual gifts until later on. Both of us filled our letters with fun memories and inside jokes and wrote about how we make each other better people. It was so sweet and I appreciate it more than anything he could have bought at J.Crew. We're both writers, so putting our feelings into a letter was really special.

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know that I finally found my dream romper the other day! I've been hitting up Plato's Closet every week hoping to find the perfect one for the perfect price. I think if I'd seen this in Forever 21, I don't know that I'd have thought to pick it up. I really thought I wanted a cotton, floral romper. And then I met this baby and had to bring her home with me. She couldn't possibly fit any better and she makes me feel so pretty. I can't wait to wear her to Blues on the Green and brunch and more date nights throughout the rest of the summer!

  1. So cute! A couple of years ago I tried on a romper that looked amazing on me but I can't remember exactly what it was but there was something about it (a default or the color or something) that made me not buy it. Since then I have never met a romper at a reasonable price that looked good on me. I love that this is basically a more functional summertime little black dress. Congrats on your anniversary!
