Five Months.

As I mentioned yesterday, it was Mr. Owl and my 5 month anniversary. His parents apparently kept making fun of us for celebrating by saying they had been together for five hundred and something months (they’ve been married for 43 years), but I think inside they just think we’re cute.

And maybe a little young… and possibly pathetically inseparable… but mostly just cute.

We celebrated by going out for Mexican food. We nearly consumed all of a ginormous burrito, and did consume all of a cheese crispy (crisp tortillas topped with cheese, guacamole, onions, and tomatoes)… and afterward, we went to the store and got Reeses Peanut Butter Ice Cream Bars for dessert.

Yes, they were as delicious as they sound.

And of course, since it was our anniversary, Mr. Owl had to join me for a few outfit pictures.

This one is my favorite. Even though we both look a little ruffled (the wind was brutal! I was freezing, but I refused to wear my coat because it didn’t look great with the outfit), I just love the picture. And I can’t believe how long his hair is getting! Before we started dating, Mr. Owl and his younger brother decided to grow out their hair and donate it to locks of love. I’m not sure how I feel about this, but I do like Mr. Owl’s hair as it is now, so who knows! He might look good with even longer hair.

One of my friends thinks that he’s definitely got a Mr. Rochester vibe going on, only he looks happier. I have to agree. And maybe that’s why I like his longer hair… because I’ve had a crush on  Mr. Rochester since I first read Jane Eyre over ten years ago.

I cannot get over how much I love this outfit. This skirt is just a tad bit too tight around the waist, but it has a stretchy back so I can mostly get away with wearing it comfortably. Unless I eat too much Mexican food. Which did happen. Sometimes, even stretchy waistbands aren’t enough.

I want to look like this every day. The bright color, the filmy shirt, the pearl collar… I love it all! I’m really afraid to wear this collar too much, though, because it’s an antique and it’s quite fragile. A few of the pearls have fallen off the ends… and the finish on them (they’re not real) is rubbing off.

Mr. Owl didn’t tell me one side was tucked under my shirt. Oh, well. We were both eager to get out of the wind and get back to playing Mario and eating our Reeses Peanut Butter Ice Cream Bars.

Another thing I really love about this skirt: it has pockets! Very handy for when you don’t know what else to do with your hands in a photoshoot.

I feel like this post has a bit of a picture overload. But I really loved this outfit, and this day, so y’know. It’ my blog, I can do what I want, right?
