Last night I went from work to dinner with my sister and her husband to a cafe called Suburban in West End. 
Dress. Basque Myer
Given this is now my favourite work to dinner dress, I thought I'd remix it a little for this occasion.
Shirt, Katies
Dinner was really lovely, sitting al fresco and enjoying the beginnings of a Queensland transition from Summer to Autumn.
Necklace, Diva $5
How awesome is this necklace?  For $5 I'm a happy girl!

10 years ago yesterday I went out with some friends.  My eyes met the blue eyes of a tall young man across the dance floor.  We danced, he bought me a drink, he asked for my number and then he disappeared into the night.

Yesterday that tall young man and I celebrated the 10 years we've spent being a part of each others lives.
Mr Man was waiting at home with a Ferrer Rocher bouquet, and whisked me away to a surprise location.  On our first anniversary he took me to The Summit Restaurant on Mount Cootha.  We hadn't been back since.  And it was there that he took me last night.
We talked of old times, we shared a bottle of wine, and a beautiful three course meal.
Its not our usual 'date night' by a long shot.  We're more gourmet pizza and a DVD types.  But something about the setting, sitting and chatting, and being so grown up was just perfect.  We might not do that again for another 10 years but it was magic.

Feelin' it

Hands up who's hot!  Yes here in Brisbane its very very humid and hot today.  Storm coming soon I hope!  You can see in my photos that its wearing me down this constant humidity.  Why the cardigan you may ask?  Because my office doesn't understand air conditioning.

Cardigan, Sussan
Belt, free with jeans
Necklace, Links of London

Mr Man and I did a movie double up on the weekend.  We saw I Am Number Four and The Green Hornet.  Both were quite good, but we did have a mad dash between movies as one finished right as the other one started.  The Green Hornet was my first 3D movie, and I don't quite understand the hype.  Plus because I wear glasses, wearing the 3D glasses OVER my normal ones was really uncomfortable.
Important day tomorrow!  Outfit and info will be posted!
