Feeling like Betty Draper, without the cheating husband

The day of our wedding anniversary, we took off on a mini getaway. I was in a Betty Draper dressing kind of mood.

Dress: Martin and Osa
Belt: Forever 21
Shoes: My Naturalizer wedges, that I may wear out by summer's end.

I'm a bit wrinkled because we spent a few hours in the car. We also did some shopping and RDog didn't complain once and he bought me stuff. KDot was a happy lady!

In the evening, we went to a steakhouse for dinner. That was my gift to RDog because I don't eat steak. There was only one dish on the menu that I could eat. He really enjoyed all the meat talk and chowing down on a red hunk of meat. Yuck! I was happy because the restaurant had divine creme brule and I was able to wear another dress.

Dress: H&M
Clutch: Nine West

I pulled out my Betty Draper red lip lipstick. It was cold and we were right on the water so I had to add a J Crew cardigan.

Then I had to do some twirls because I felt pretty.


  1. Oh my gosh that H&M dress looks gorgeous on you! I love the color!

  2. You look amazing in both dresses but the H&M dress is super fabulous!!

    Sounds like you had a great time celebrating your anniversary!

  3. That first dress is amazing! It cuts a MEAN silhouette and you look awesome!

  4. I had to link you because I'm definitely branching my wardrobe out, slowly but surely. And.... Love your style!

  5. Thank you everyone, you're making me blush.

    Spiffy, thank you for listing me on your blog. I get a big kick when I see my blog on the blogs I read!

  6. Fantastic outfits!! Love both! What a great weekend!

  7. What! I had no idea you read my site! I've been reading yours and you've been reading mine and neither of us knew? - hilarious!

  8. Very magnanimous of you to allow your dh the carnal pleasure of red meatery -- I, too, find a big hunk o' red meat more or less repulsive [of course, bacon is another story altogether...!]. Love both of your outfits, they are divine!

  9. Lady B, I don't even classify bacon as meat. It is just pure yumminess. :P

  10. that red dress is fabulous! you look great!

  11. The attitude without the behavior...haha
