Cedars and Burma

Argh, Monday morning is here again...such a familiar sidler who always sneaks up on me way too quickly. I do wish the weekends were longer. Thanks to my hubby, this one was particularly lovely as he took me out on an unexpected date night to Cedars, a local Lebanese restaurant.
Gosh, was the food ever delicious to say the least. Food of any kind always excites me but this was above and beyond my expectations. My favorite had to be the burma, which I had for dessert... filo dough stuffed with pistachios and drenched in honey that had some kind of flowery essence to it. Mmm, I can taste it now as I type this. Anyways, this is what I wore...

  16. For years I've been terrified of pairing green and red shades together out of fear that it'd look like a "Christmas" theme... but wow. This is just... wow. For serious. I cant even think of a proper adjective to describe how spectacular this outfit is!
