All dolled up with no idea where we’ll go!

For our 5 year anniversary, the hubby and I planned not to make any plans…sounds easy enough, right? We ate a big breakfast of pancakes, headed to the spend the day on the beach, had massages and then came back home where the hubby said he broke the rules and had actually planned a dinner out. Not knowing where we were going, I asked him what I should wear and he said “wear something fun”. So this is what I chose…

I wore:
Nanette Lepore flower print dress with major embellishment along the neckline (I really wanted to show this thus why there are so many semi-cleavage shots)
Christian Louboutin
Very Prive pumps in silver (similar here)


We ended up having dinner with some close friends at George’s French restaurant…the closest thing to Paris in Miami ;) We had a wonderful eating, drinking and strolling down memory lane…guess sometimes some plans are made to be broken.

And by the way, how wonderful are these Very Prive heels?? They are some of my most comfortable too! Who would have thought ;)

    How sweet of him to surprise you like that! I do love the idea of not planning anything and just going with the flow though. I’m going to tell my husband the same thing for our anniversary next year. Hehe. Congratulations on yours! The dress is gorgeous, and I love the neckline. And you have the right cleavage for it, so show away girlie! Hehe. Gorgeous shoes, too! :)

      Lol!! I was a little nervous that it would be too much cleavage, but I guess you need to spice things up after 5 years ;)
      Hope you and your hubby have a fabulous “go with the flow” day next year ;)

      Thank you for your sweet words…
      and thank you for your well wishes :)

    That dress is dynamite on you. Just gorgeous. Sounds like the unplanned evening turned out perfectly!

    • September 18, 2012 / 5:28 pm

      It really was…sometimes the best things are those we don’t plan ;)
      So happy you liked the dress!!

  9. September 17, 2012 / 10:22 pm

    love the dress and the background is just perfect for photos!!

    • September 18, 2012 / 5:29 pm

      Thank you!!
      It’s my balcony and I always get concerned that you guys will be tired of the same background…but as long as the clothing shows up, I’m happy ;)

    • September 18, 2012 / 5:29 pm

      Thank you, Rebecca!!
      I just put on the first dress that caught my eye and some silver shoes…easy as pie ;)

  10. September 18, 2012 / 1:02 am

    You look beautiful! I love the entire look and of course am drooling over the shoes! I hope you had a fantastic anniversary!

      Thank you, Miss Lisa!!
      To tell you the honest truth…those shoes are ridiculously comfortable…I would wear them with everything but I save them for special days…but if you ever get a pair of Louboutins, go for the Very Prive…they are beautiful and almost pain free ;)

  11. September 18, 2012 / 1:17 am

    You look gorg! That dress is so flirty and fun!

    • September 18, 2012 / 5:35 pm

      Thank you!!
      That’s exactly the two words that I would use to describe the dress :)

  12. September 18, 2012 / 2:21 am

    You always have the most adorable dresses. You look amazing in that. And you have great legs.

    I love the embellishments on your dress. And look at you, you’re radiant in the photos! I couldn’t help but notice Miami in the background – what an extraordinary view.

      Thank you, Eva :)
      Yes…that’s Miami in the background…always trying to steal my spotlight when I take the pictures on the balcony ;)
      But I must say…it’s hard to compete with the city because I think it’s one of the prettiest in the world…but I’m probably biased big time ;)

      Lol! When I was younger I hated having these long legs…the kids picked on me because I was this tall skinny dark skinned girl…but over the years, I have learned to love it because it’s not so bad after all ;)

    • September 18, 2012 / 5:44 pm
