What I Wore Wednesday: Weddings

This past weekend NotBlondeHusband and I went to the evening reception for his cousin's wedding. Shock of all shocks--I wore a Cynthia Rowley dress--if it ain't broke don't fix it.




on Blondie
Cynthia Rowley Skater Dress- TK Maxx
HM Cropped Blazer
Purple Peep Toe Heels- Barrett's
Purple Flower Corsage- Dorothy Perkins
Versace for HM Studded Bag
Earrings- Etsy
Misty Jade Polish- Rimmel

on NotBlondeHusband
Ted Baker Suit and Tie

Please ignore the giant bruise on my knee, at least it matched my dress right? I changed it up a little bit and wore an oversized purple flower corsage on my jacket and painted my toenails teal to match the dress. I love how versitle the dress is that I can wear it to work or a wedding but it would be pretty boring to show you the same dress you've seen a gazillion times over again. 

Today is NotBlondeHusband and my fourth wedding anniversary. We met 9 years ago this month, have lived together over 8 years and were married 4 years ago today. We both put up with each other's bullshit and I genuinely can't think of anyone else more perfect for me. We've had our ups and downs but after 9 years who hasn't?

I could say lots of things about our anniversary but instead I'm going to let the photos do the talking. I hope you don't mind my What I Wore Wednesday is a flashback but I thought it was pretty appropriate. You've already seen my purple wedding shoes but here is the rest of what I wore at my wedding. It is a bit picture heavy but it's my anniversary I think I can get away with it! All of the images below are property of White Photography in Cincinnati, Ohio.
