Watercolor Floral Maxi Skirt + Anniversary in Botanic Garden

written by Toia B. August 30, 2016

Last Thursday, hubby and I celebrated nine years of marriage! Since it fell on a weekday, we did our actual celebrating on Saturday. The hubster kept quiet on what he had planned so when the day came, I was as anxious and giddy as a schoolgirl!

First stop — Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We match!Watercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Rose GardenWatercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Botanic Garden 2Watercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Botanic Garden 1 Watercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Botanic Garden 3Watercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Bench 3Watercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Bench 2

Because life and bills are real (LOL!) we’ve spent our last few wedding anniversaries right here at home, doing things locally, enjoying one another’s company. This trip to Brooklyn Botanic Garden was special because I hadn’t been since I was a teenager and I’ve come to realize that I absolutely love nature. It gives me such peace.Watercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Botanic Garden BackWatercolor Floral Maxi Skirt Rose Garden 2

What a coincidence that I’d wear this watercolor floral maxi skirt and end up at Brooklyn Botanic Garden! When I spotted it at my favorite thrift shop just a couple weeks ago, I couldn’t leave without it, especially not at only four bucks! It needed some mending but thanks to mom, I know my way around a needle and thread.

Can’t go wrong with a maxi skirt in the summer. The floral print against this backdrop made for some gorgeous memories.

Thanks hubster! ♥ 😉

But wait… there’s more! Stay tuned for more anniversary highlights coming soon.

How have you and your mate spent your anniversaries or special occasions while on a budget?
