Last Friday M and I went to one of our favorite restaurants Prosecco to celebrate our monthly anniversary. I went with a more relaxed look, I haven’t been too much into heels lately. (Especially since I was almost running late.) I wore these quilted gold flats from Topshop.
And I finally wore my new Zara dress that I bought in Rome.
Seriously, this dress is surprisingly difficult to wear. It is super short and requires laid back styling. In the end I quite like this outfit, it’s not my favorite ever, but it was nice and I had fun wearing it, which is my biggest criteria when it comes to clothes.
So why did I title this post the way I did? Well for one thing, the food was delicious! I had my favorite starter (chilly shrimp) , then a really good salad (which was super fun as it was in a vase and I got to eat it with giant tweezers).
This made me very happy! Oh and here you can see my earrings better. They are super old and are also from Topshop.
For dessert I had this “cigar” (made from vanilla ice cream in a marzipan roll covered in cocoa powder and dipped in mint flavored sugar and a shot of rum). It was very good actually.
Anyways, the rest of my outfit: a Mango jean jacket that is a few years old, my trusty black pashmina scarf, a black pull&bear cardigan and my New Look Lemon slice clutch bag (it’s the same size as my watermelon one) and I really like how it looked with the dress. Next time I want to wear this bag with some nice bright yellow shoes (and as I have finally done the winter/summer shoes switch-around, I now have excess to the perfect pair. So stay tuned for that in a future OOTD post.)
*If you were wondering what’s in my Lush bag, M gave me three bath bombs. I am planning to do another Lush review soon, I promise.

Ooh monthly anniversary dates, complete with gifts- great idea!! 🙂 Nice outfit, love the clutch! x
They’re usually little gifts but it’s really sweet. I gave M a book (Lars Kepler’s Stalker – I’m a bit jealous that the Czech translation has come out before the English one!) The monthly anni dates are really great because there’s always something to look forward to every month :))
Oh I’d love to try that ‘cigar’! It looks so yummy!
By the way, your lemon-slice-clutch is so cute and I couldn’t move my eyes away from it! You must have people commenting on it when you wear it out?!!!
It was really interesting, I like occasionally trying new desserts though when I find a favorite I stick to it:) And thank you! I really like these clutches (NL made an orange slice clutch as well but I don’t have that one.)
I like the dress, it has a proper 60’s feel to it.
