What I Wore, Anniversary Edition

It’s time for another What I Wore Wednesday!  I know if you haven’t done this before you might think it is silly and vain to take pictures of yourself and post them on the interenet for the world to see.  And you’re probably right.  But another thing that it does is forces you (in a very fun way, of course…) to actually change out of the sweats you were planning on wearing to the gym {but didn’t quite make it} and put on something cute.  If you have a husband, you might do it for him, but a lot of us women kinda do it for us.  It makes me feel better and cuter when I put a little effort into what I look like.  Vain?  Maybe.  But whatever.  I got out of my pajamas.

yes, I am Amazon woman. I am already 6′ tall and then I go and wear 5 in heals. Sorry, short people.

Var and I went to see Captain America.  It was really good.  I liked it a lot.  And believe it or not, my 6’7″ black Bahamian basketball player of a husband is secretly a big comics nerd.  So yes, I {or I should say he} sees every super hero movie out there.  B flicks included.

This was a fun last minute ‘do I through together to look decent. It worked and I liked it.  The necklace is from Africa!  Check out my post here on The Nakate Project or you can go directly to their site.  Oh and the husband and I are doing a photo shoot for them this weekend! I am so excited!  Except I am so not a model… Should be interesting

If you follow me on Twitter or saw my ‘marriage advice’ post last week, you know that my husband and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary!  FOUR YEARS!  Just kidding, I know that’s just baby talk in anniversary language.  But hubs went above and beyond to make is special which was SHOCKING, but lovely. 

We started the morning with Denny’s breakfast.  I was sitting at our kitchen table about to take a bite of Cheerios and he comes down stairs and says ‘put that down, we’re going out.’  I had just planned to take my friends kid for the morning, she’s 7 months pregnant, and I was going to a friends house to have the kids swim.  Whelp, my mom swooped in and took the boys and we were off.  I got ready super fast {hence the fedora to cover bad hair} and we didn’t return again until the next morning!  If we had music playing in the background, it could have been a movie.

We got our nails done after breakfast.  Yes, husband too, which was awesome.  Awesomely funny.  They had to whip out the power tools for this guy.  Like seriously, Dumb and Dumber stuff right here.  The poor lady working on him was pregnant too!!  I felt so bad for her, she got the biggest tip.

Then we got a couples massage where he fell asleep and I conquered the world {in my head}.  It was sooooo relaxing.  Although I would have liked to fall asleep.  After that we headed out to Westlake, a very beautiful community with a very beautiful hotel.  He got us a room there!  What?? Who is this man and where is the one I married?  Wait.  Scratch that.  I’ll take this one.
We went to Universal City Walk, had yummy dinner at Bubba Gump’s and saw Friends with Benefits, which was funny, in case you were wondering.  What a lovely day.
heading out to date night

Well, gosh, after that my life isn’t that interesting.  This dress I wore on an out and about day with the fam bam.  It is comfy and light-weight and perfect for summer.  The hair was fun to do because you tease like there is no tomorrow.  I’ll have to show you sometime.

Here is a better view of the hair.  Tease, tease, tease headbands, puff the hair, tease the pony, wrap it around, pin the bun.  Okay, I’ll do a video, I promise!

Oh and I found the perfect photo for the Summer Loving’ Photo Contest on Friday.  No, I am not entering my own contest, but it will motivate you all to enter yours!!  It is super awesome, can’t wait!  Get yours ready!

Oh and a quick shout out to all my Facebook buddies.  I super duper appreciate the feedback on my name over here at Ma Nouvelle Mode.  Like super duper duper thanks.  You’re all awesome.

Have a great day!

    Your hairstyles always rock. Love the last one with the headband. Very pretty, as is the entire ensemble. And it is not vain to show off your looks. I think more women should be proud to show the world that they are fierce!

    You always look super cute! I seriously hope you do a video on that hairstyle. I've always liked it, but can't really create it on myself in a way that looks right. I think I might not be teasing it enough. I like that maxi too. I'm a couple inches shorter than you and I have a nightmare of a time finding ones that are long enough so I can only imagine the hunting you have to do! You and your hubs are adorable.
