I don’t think of myself as an overly sentimental person–but I can’t let go of this dress.
Bracelet: Shop in Honolulu
Boots: Urban Outfitters
I bought it about 12 years ago. It’s hardly new. And there’s nothing special about it–except that 10 years ago I wore it on my first date with my now-husband.
I don’t wear it often, but it has such good memories. It used to have sleeves, but I cut them off. Now, if it’s cool, I throw on a cardigan or jacket.
These days, in the Seattle heat wave, that’s not an issue.
I recently wore this dress again when hubby and I went back to the place for our first lunch date: Araya’s Vegetarian Place. Araya’s has moved three times and added three more locations, but they’re still going strong. Just like Mr. Jean of all Trades and me!
If you’re in the Seattle area (or LA!) check out Araya’s.
I’ve joined Visible Monday for a blogger linkup. See what all the others are wearing!
