Boots and chapel: Styling over-the-knee boots with a slouchy suit jacket and vegan leather leggings

My hubby and I celebrated a rather special occasion this past Friday, dear readers – it was our 15th Wedding Anniversary!!

While we didn’t do an exchange of gifts (even for birthdays and Christmas, that’s never really been our “thing”) we did go to our favourite Indian restaurant for dinner.  And before that??  It’s become tradition for us to spent the afternoon strolling the gardens of the little chapel where we got married!!

And just like for our actual wedding, this year we enjoyed a really pretty day to go along with the pretty surroundings; a wonderful surprise, considering that Vancouver’s weather for the May long-weekend is notoriously a total wash-out!!

Fingers crossed that it’s not a false start and that we’re finally on our way to summertime!!  I’d brought home these show-stopping over-the-knee boots waaay back in February…but today was the first day that it truly felt “safe” to wear them!! 😏

    Happy anniversary, a day late!!! What a lovely tradition. We try to do something similar on the rare occasions we are back in Minnesota on our anniversary.

    And what a fun ensemble to wear for the occasion.

      While denim looks are my mainstay, I thought our anniversary deserved something a bit different, dearest Linda!! 😉 Thank you very much for the good wishes!! XO
