Cute Outfit of the Day: Denim Peplum Dress on a Very Special Day

 Target denim dress: thrift $5
 Forever 21 jacket: Out of the Closet Thrift Store $8
bracelet: Forever 21 $5
earrings: Forever 21 $3
vintage pumps: thrift $4
Total Cost: $25

I know I wore this jacket in another recent post but when I needed a jacket to wear with this dress it was the perfect choice! I love how the studs on the jacket mimic the shapes of the tribal print on the dress! The only problem was that the jacket was too long! It typically hits just below the hip which completely covered the peplum detail. So I folded it under and secured it with some safety pins and made it the perfect length and no one even knew! 

Today is a very special day- It's my husband, Jason's birthday!
 We've been together for 16 years (on July 15th) and he is still my favorite person in the whole world! I admire the way he loves others so well, how he makes wise choices in life, and how he never stops reaching for his dreams! He is truly the most amazing person I've ever met and I'm so lucky to have him in my life! Love you babe!
