A Golden Dilemma

With Scott and I's six year anniversary coming up on Wednesday, I've been thinking about what I want to wear on our anniversary dinner date. I've been toying with the idea of getting glammed up a bit - smoky eye makeup, high heels (err, do I own any of those? yikes!), and an ensemble that is more glammy than my everyday wears. I've been thinking that this pretty pencil skirt from LuLu*s would be the perfect piece to center a glammy outfit around! I LOVE the gold detailing, and how shapely it makes me feel (even though I may be a tad self conscious about it, I'm still going to rock it!).

Traditionally, iron and sugar are given on a six year anniversary. Over the past few years Scott and I have payed attention to the traditionally gifts, and have given each other a few gifts that corresponded with our anniversary year number. One year he gave me wooden earrings/necklace pieces and I still absolutely love them!

When I was thinking of what I wanted to style with this LuLu*s skirt, this dainty clutch came to mine. I've had it stowed away in my closet for some time now, always saving it for a special occasion. It belonged to my late grandmother and it, just like she, holds a very special place in my heart.

Outfit details:
Cardigan: Target
Camisole: Target
Foil Me Twice Gold Print Pencil Skirt: c/o LuLu*s
Flats: c/o Marshalls

I recently read Elizabeth's thoughts on how she wants her own anniversary ensemble to be, and now I'm set on picking out the perfect outfit for the occasion (even if it ends up being simple!).

Do you like getting all glammed up for your anniversary, or do you like to keep it simple? Do you have any anniversary traditions?
