A Love Story
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We laid low for most of it because I had a cold and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” came out on Amazon, so I had to watch it three more times, of course. (It makes my heart so happy!) However, we did get out of the house for one special occasion this weekend. It was my husband’s grandparent’s 52nd anniversary! How awesome is that? My grandparents have also been married for more than 50 years. I think it is beyond awesome that our grandparents have such strong marriages, and it really gives us something to aspire to. 🙂
This outfit is what I wore when we went out to celebrate this real life love story. Most of the pieces you guys have probably already seen, but my skirt is a new addition. The lovely folks over at Romwe had sent it to me. I’m trying to incorporate more pattern-less clothing into my wardrobe that I’ll be able to mix and match for years (just like my marriage, I’m going for longevity with my wardrobe too, haha). And this skirt will go with a ton of different outfits! I also love how well this skirt holds it shape. It reminds me of my favorite floral midi skirt. The best part of this skirt, though, is that it is less than $20! You can’t beat prices like that. I was also really happy with how quickly this skirt shipped. Usually, when I order from overseas it can take 2+ weeks, but this skirt arrived in under a week!
But if you do order this skirt, just be aware, that in order for it to hold this shape..the material is a bit stiff. It doesn’t bother me, but it also means you have to get your size right as there isn’t any “give” in this fabric. And this skirt does run small, so just double check the measurement table. Also, I didn’t notice this until I went back to link to the skirt, but the photo on the site shows that this skirt is more matte looking. However, in person, it is definitely more shiny looking. (Click here to see the photo.) Again, it doesn’t bother me, but it is something to be aware of. (And it means you have to be better at ironing than me! As I found out, wrinkles show up a bit more on shiny, pattern-less fabric!)
On a side note, I’ve also decided to order this top from NewChic in more colors. (So, hopefully, you guys are not sick of seeing it just yet, haha.) It is so perfect to tuck into my midi skirts and high-waisted pants. I think I’ll be getting the black top and the blue one. For $8 it is absolutely amazing quality!
How was everyone else’s weekend? And do you know anyone who has been married for 50+ years? Let me know in the comments!

I did get that it is shiny and I love it! I love your outfit, you look so classy, elegant, feminine! And that lovely skirt for less than $20, wow! Such a great deal! You look amazing! Hope you recovered, a cold is never good!
Thank you so much, Denise! You are far too kind! And isn’t a skirt for under $20 awesome? 🙂 And my cold is starting to get a little better – thank you! 🙂
Oh this outfit looks so romantic. I love it x
Thank you so much, Julia! 🙂
Wearing things without prints is something I am striving to do, as well. Not that I’m trying to quit prints completely. That’s like trying to quit oxygen. But, I would like to feel comfortable in non-printed clothing too.
You are definitely doing those solids proud. The texture is lovely!
Oh, I am definitely not giving up on prints either! Haha! Just trying to make more of an effort to buy them versus my initial reaction to buy the brightest, most novelty-like print I can find. 😉 (Especially now that my accessories consist of quite a few novelty items.) And thank you so much! 🙂
You look so cute in this outfit, I love the skirt.
Thank you so much! 🙂
Love this! That’s so awesome about your grandparents (both yours and your husband’s) marriages! Very lovely outfit for a very lovely girl! XO
Thank you so much, Lauren! You are the sweetest! 🙂
Gorgeous! I just love that midi skirts, delicate details, and lovely scarves have become part of your signature look.
Also, big congrats to your grandparents-in-law! (is that what they would be called?)
Thank you so much, Jen! I’m also excited I’m starting to develop a signature look! 🙂 I didn’t really notice until you mentioned it, but I have been loving my midi skirts and scarves lately. 🙂 And thanks you so much! I think grandparents-in-law works! Haha.
What a lovely outfit! The bow heels and scarf are such great touches. That’s so amazing about your grandparents. Wow!
Thank you so much! 🙂
Love the skirt and how you styled it with the scarf and those shoes!! You look so beautiful! And that is amazing that your grandparents have been together so long. I hope to have that longevity in my relationship as well.
Aw, thank you, Lili! 🙂 And isn’t that awesome? I hope we all can have that kind of longevity in our relationships.
Yes, I think you get a lot of mileage out of that skirt! I always strive to have at least one solid skirt, preferably black, because of the versatility. You look very pretty and chic! 🙂
Thank you so much, Laurie! I was definitely in need of a black skirt – they go with everything. 🙂
I LOVE that scarf. It’s amazing. You look so sweet and posh. Wonderful post. xx
Thank you so much, Johnna! Demon TZ’s scarves are amazing! 🙂
