Special Date Night!



How you all doing?
Hope you are all fine and dandy!

Has your week gone well so far?
Tuesdaywas a special day for me and my hubby - our 30th Wedding Anniversary, yes I know child bride lol!


You might remember I showed you earlier in the week a rather cloudy photo of my beautiful pearl earrings hubby gave me for our 30th Anniversary, and here is a photo of me wearing them out on Tuesday night.

We had a lovely evening dining in our favourite restaurant - Reads is a fabulous restaurant with rooms, set in tranquil grounds this stunning Georgian manor house boasts a Michelin starred chef and owner, favouring French classics with European, American and New world cuisine.
The four course meal was superbly cooked, presented and as you would expect nothing was too much trouble and everything tasted amazing.  We toasted our Pearl wedding anniversary, our good health and our absent friends and family.  Our carriage to and from the restaurant taken care of by two of our children, meaning we could both share the bottle of Laurent Perrier rose Champagne.  See I knew there was a reason to have 5 kids!





So this beautifully stunning pleated dress cobalt blue - one of my favourite colours, I so often choose it.
Has wide should detail with cross-over pleated neck line, bought this Jacques Vert creation from a local outlet store. So pleased with the style very classic and I'll wear for many more occasions I'm sure.
I wore these black suede ankle strap sandals from Zara a year or so ago, they are rather high but as I was only walking car-to-bar as they say I felt they would be acceptable to my feet and legs!
Black patent clutch bag for my lipstick and phone, a girl must have her lippy!  Just in case it turned really cold I took my over sized black scarf, but actually didn't need it, which probably makes a change for me, this was from Primark, maybe costing as much as £4!!  Bargain.
A black bead necklace finished off my look. 
Wanted to include photo of hubby, looking very gorgeous in his Lacoste shirt, came all the way from our holiday in Spain and I think is a lovely bright colour.
Can you spot his poorly finger?  Chopped the top off with an electric saw, looks very painful and I think he may have said something like 'ouch that hurt'!!!
