Today is my 10-year wedding anniversary! You may remember I posted this D.I.Y. chandelier by Lindsey Adelman back in March. Well, I immediately put the husband to work, and he really came through for me. I love it! Paired with flowers from recent photo shoots, it makes for a very celebratory scene, doesn’t it?

…if you’re wondering what I got him, I can’t reveal it just yet — the day is young! But we’re planning on enjoying this warm weather with drinks seaside and a fahn-cy steak dinner. I’m just excited to get dolled up…perhaps my Alice + Olivia dress?


And last but not least, the winner of the Society Social giveaway (chosen by is:
Traci Easter

Congrats! Society Social will be in touch.
