5 Years!

This Saturday marked 5 years that my boyfriend and I have been dating. Yep, you read that right. We've been together since we were 17. We're just as happy and in love as we've ever been. Some people find it super adorable. Others find it creepy.  One thing's for sure: we're a dying breed.

"Scarab multi-stone flex necklace" by Lucky Brand. Best friend got it for me last Christmas. :)

What I wore:
Top: JC Penney
Pants: Loft
Necklace: Lucky Brand (someone's selling it on eBay)
Flats: Nine West (old)
Purse: Knockoff Coach from the 90's
(from Mom's closet!)


We had big plans to celebrate and spend all day together, but life got in the way. One thing we did not sacrifice, however, was our annual pumpkin-carving tradition. And, of course, the gift giving. We got each other the same thing; great minds think alike!

  4. So awesome to hear that you're still together since 17 years old!! My BF and I have been together since we were 16 and still going strong into three years... We are a dying breed! And I do agree that people find it weird. Oh well. :)

    also.. LOVE those pants! I've been wanting mustard ones and didn't know LOFT had them. Off to shop :)

    1. Haha, thanks Marlen! Congrats on your One Year! ;)

      Mostly strangers think it's creepy. People who are close to us still love us, haha. But there are strangers who think it's adorable too. :)

  6. Hi! I love your jeans/pants! I ordered a pair on that same color from J.crew (Matchstick skinny) and they were um...too skinny. How do yours run? Are they still available?

    1. I just bought these last weekend during a store-wide 40% off sale (including regular-priced items!), and they were regular price, so they must still be in stores. They're also still available online.

      They're not very skinny around the legs, if that's what you mean. They are a little tight in the thighs, but since the pants stretch quite a bit I prefer them this way. It's the kind of pant you have to wash in order to shrink back down. In other words, when you try them on they'll feel tight, but as you walk around town with them for the first time, they will loosen up a bit and fit just right. Then they might be a little too loose and you'll have to wash them to shrink them back. But I have that problem with many pants (it must be my body?) so it doesn't bother me.

  13. I saw this post at the bottom of your most recent...so I clicked on it lol. Congrats on the 5 years! That's wonderful :) My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 5 as well. It's sad that not very many young couples stay together for that long. There needs to be more love in this world!

    1. Haha, thanks for clicking on the link!

      Yes, it's sad, but I'm all for couples breaking up when it's just not working anymore. Still, I really value the long-term relationship and find it so adorable when two people love each other so much they can stand to be together for so long, haha!

      And congrats on your almost 5 years as well! :)
