Tee Dresses Layered For Winter: Anniversary Weekend

Still playing catch-up with blog posts, as I wore these outfits a few weeks ago! We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at the end of May. It was a big one for us, with our house build completed, moving into the new house, and a trip overseas to Europe and back to Scotland, where we first went together after our engagement. This time with the kids in tow! With all of these big things I was expecting a quiet weekend for our anniversary, even though hubby had told me to keep the weekend free.

He surprised me with a kid-free weekend away on the Gold Coast, in the same hotel we celebrated out first wedding anniversary in! It was a wonderful surprise!

What I wore:

DressCotton On 'Tina' white striped tee dress in Lissy black / Gardenia
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagChanel vintage quilted lambskin flap

Why I wore it:

When hubby let me know what the surprise was I knew instantly I was going to wear some of my dresses that hadn't been worn in a while! I worry this one is a little too short for days with the boys, but for a weekend away it was perfect! As we were driving down I noticed a sign advertising Seafire - a big fireworks event on the beach. This wasn't the perfect outfit for that - although my big blanket scarf did come in helpful to shelter us from a rain shower and keep us warm as we sat on the beach - but it was fun to attend the show anyway. I've never seen fireworks on the beach before, really enjoyed it!

The vintage Chanel bag was another must-have due to being kid-free! It's lambskin so a bit too delicate for me to wear it around the boys very often! It fit just the essentials and my camera inside which was nice.

Why I wore it:

Our second day on the coast, another tee dress! This one was a spring / summer favourite when I bought it when my oldest was a baby, but when he got mobile it got less and less wear. I usually wear it as a top with a skirt over it to make the length a little more practical for running around with the kids. But being kid-free, it was easy to wear with tights and ankle boots. Winter on the Gold Coast is still a little chilly!

This mustard scarf is a great combination with the botanical print on the dress, it compliments the yellow nicely. Again, a simple outfit that I enjoyed wearing!

How You Can Wear It:

A printed tee dress is so simple to wear on it's own in spring or summer. You don't have to pack them away for winter though! Layer them up with tights, ankle boots, denim jackets and a cosy scarf to keep you warm.

  3. How lovely of your husband to surprise you with a romantic weekend for only the two of you. I think couples should definitely do these kind of things, it is important to keep the connection. So great you celebrated your anniversary back in May. Happy anniversary. Ten years is amazing! An anniversary like that deserves a Gold Cost weekend for sure.

    So great you decided to wear these lovely dresses for this weekend. The striped dress looks great paired with a denim jacket and a vintage chanel bag. I also really like the print on the other dress. You looked fabulous in both outfits!

Congrats on 10 years too (amazing work, hats off to you on that) and what a lovely way to celebrate. A weekend on the goldie must have been a great break.

    I checked out your handbag collection tab. Wow your Balenciaga collection is amazing. I only have one balenciaga. Not sure it's my style but looking at your collection and your style, you can obviously use the Balenciaga bags with everything (not just certain edgy outfits :)
