Falling in love with your soul mate is a beautiful thing; staying in love and being married to him for ten years (and counting) is destiny, and quite honestly an extremely special accomplishment!  To celebrate our love on our milestone anniversary, we decided to take a trip Croatia.  With the help of our friend and pro wedding photographer, Ainsley Rose, we spent an evening shooting around the gorgeous sea-side City of Split.  We created so many beautiful memories during this trip and I’m excited to finally share a little sneak peek of our anniversary photo session with you…

Wardrobe Details:

With the generous help from our friends at Winners, we pulled together two great looks.  We knew that the setting was going to be uniquly beautiful and didn’t want to complete with our natural surroundings, so we opted for a neutral and classic colour palette of black, white and tan.

For Him:

Joe’s a casual jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, so I kept his look timeless and simplistic.  I started with this crisp white Calvin Klein shirt ($59); a true wardrobe essential.  I paired it with these pinstriped slim cut trousers ($79), which fit him perfectly.  Joe has a narrow waist and muscular thighs and we often have a hard time finding him slacks that work for his body type, unless we get them altered to fit.   These were on pint!

For Me:

I wore this beautiful black bo-ho inspired maxi dress ($40).  The lace trim and cold-shoulder cutout details were the perfect mix of romance and femininity; which set the mood for the shoot.  This dress was a great find and is going to work beautifully in multiple settings and seasons.  I’m looking forward to wearing it with my leather jacket, black wide-brimmed hat and leather ankle booties this upcoming holiday season!

Accessories:

The “Nadia Ear Climber” was custom designed for me by my good friend and jewellery designer, Elsa Corsi.  This ear cuff is my go-to piece when ever I want to elevate my outfit!

Shoes:

I chose to wear a nude sandal with this dress as I wanted to extend the leg line and detract attention away from the dress.  Also from Winners, these genuine leather shoes are from last season and travel very well, simply because they work with literally every outfit!
