{Outfit}: Monkeys 5 Year Dating Anniversary!

Sparkly Dress DSC04911

  Thursday January 31, 2013

This is what I wore to celebrate the 5 year dating anniversary of my boyfriend and I !! YAI! My boyfriend was extra sweet to me that day and surprised me with roses and a new monkey while I was at work. How thoughtful right?!

I had a hard time deciding what to wear out to dinner with him that night. In the end, I went with this sparkly blue dress that I've had for years. It is my favorite shade of blue and I love the way it sparkles!

Also, in case you didn't notice, I got my hair done that day! The color is more blond and the haircut has lots of layers and volume. I really love how it turned out :)

That night, we decided to celebrate by going out to dinner to a restaurant called Manolo Caracol in Casco Viejo, a historic area of Panama. I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for months and months now, so I was very happy when my boyfriend suggested it for tonight. It was delish!

**That was my best impersonation of a monkey... just FYI


After dinner, I surprised my boyfriend with a little present. He opened a wrapped box just to find a paper that said "Visit My blog for a Surprise". That's when he saw that little video montage I made the other day (See the video HERE!). He loved it!

We both really enjoyed watching all of those lovely moments we lived together. Thank you Alejandro for the best 5 years ever ;)

  16. Wow! The whole outfit is so sweet. Love the way the shoes&clutch combine with the little sparkles of the dress. And as someone said that shade of blue is perfect for your skin tone. Also liked the new haircut and new color, though I think I still prefer darker hair ;)
