This was my first-evah attempt at wearing black and navy together. My friend Maria in college was always an advocate for the combo, insisting that black + navy = class. I was never so sure (I always thought it would look like an accidental mismatch), but this dress with black was too funeral-ly and I've seen some great navy/black combos lately so I decided to give it a shot. I added some grey tights and a light green-blue belt to complement the navy. This dress was just a tad too short when I bought it, so my wonderful mom helped me redo the hem to add a couple inches and it now may be perfect: comfy ponte material, great for work over a white button-up, easily dresses up with a colored belt and a cardi, and it has polka dots!

After mass last night, Stephen and I went to a Valentine's dinner for married couples sponsored by our church. We had so much fun, and surprisingly we weren't the most recently married couple (we sat at a table with two couples married the month after us). The longest-married couple was 59 years. The dinner was catered by the same people who catered our wedding reception, and we were pretty happy to actually get some of their to-die-for carrot cake this time (if you are planning your wedding make sure that someone saves you some dinner and cake, you really won't have time to eat it!!) One of the married couples who had been together 21 years and has 8 children gave a beautiful talk on NFP, forgiveness, and how their relationship has changed over the years.
Have a lovely Sunday!
