Last night, Eric and I celebrated seven years together. It’s so crazy to think that we’ve been together for such a large chunk of our lives at age 25 – we started dating right after I graduated from high school!
We actually grew up in the same area in Maryland, attending the same schools growing up and having a number of mutual friends. Oddly we never managed to officially meet until after he had spent a year at University of Maryland, and I was preparing to attend in the spring. Most people are wildly surprised when I say how long we’ve been together, and while I can’t say it’s very ordinary, I wouldn’t rather have it any other way.
It was a gorgeous (albeit hot) night for celebrating, and we went to Vinoteca in DC. The dinner – and the wine – was all delicious, and we enjoyed getting to have a special night out.
I decided to wear a dress I recently found at Nordstrom Rack that fit like an absolute glove. I hadn’t heard of the brand, but I knew I had to have the dress for my next special occasion. I had hoped it would come in handy soon, and I’m glad it did! I paired it simply with my favorite pair of black wedges (similar here, on sale!).
The dress I loved so much is available here in coral, but here are a few similar black and white options as well if you have a special occasion coming up!
