lookbook: anniversary

My outfit for our anniversary dinner!

It was an extremely cold night so I was going to go with pants but I wanted to wear one of my new shoes so I sucked it up and wore a big winter coat and tights to stay warm.

What I'm wearing:
Cardi: Banana Republic
Top: Gift from my sister (not sure what the label is)
Skirt: Aritzia
Tights: DKNY
Shoes: Christian Louboutin "Lady Gres"
Necklace: "Love" pendant - wedding present from my mom

It's funny because I do love wearing dresses but I don't wear skirts too often. It is so easy for me to play around with dresses, adding belts, blazers, cardigans, what not, but skirts are a different story. I seem to never know what to wear with them. I love this little grey one that's a little bit of a tulip shape and it's got an exposed zipper on the back. I've only worn this one other time to work so I was happy that I was able to wear it out to dinner. They suede grey Louboutins went well with the skirt and the purple top added just what I needed to the otherwise drab outfit.

We were lucky to get a parking spot close by so I did not have to freeze my buns off! :)
