Squares & Stripes

I've been married for three weeks now. Nothing really feels any different, except for that ring on my left hand. This is the first time it's making a noticeable appearance on the blog, and probably the fifth time I've worn it in real life. I'm not alone though, as DH has worn his even less often than I have. We really are meant to be, lol.
bracelet as necklace: gift from SewPetiteGal (custom order from her Etsy shop)
belt: Old Navy (similar)
shorts: American Eagle (this season's sold here)

Photo thanks to DH

  2. I thought I was an avid follower of your blog, but I must have missed something, haha, I didn't even know you were engaged, and now you're already married! Congrats!!! Of course, loving the outfit today...bright pink always looks so nice on you!

    1. Ahh, sorry, no you didn't miss anything. We weren't ever officially engaged and pretty much decided the time was right to get married, so we had a simple civil ceremony :) It was low key and no fuss, so I didn't make it a big deal on the blog. Thanks for the well wishes, Olyvia!

    1. Thank you! We didn't make a big deal out of our simple civil ceremony, so I figured there wasn't a need to make a big fuss on the blog. I was actually planning on talking about my married status in a future blog post of our wedding day (still waiting to get photos back)... but the ring on my finger in this outfit was kinda hard to miss, so the announcement came early :)

  4. Congrats on the marriage!! It true, I didn't feel any different after getting married either, especially since we were already living together before getting married.

    Btw, Love your little bits of menswear in your outfits. =)

    As for this outfit... I love the pops of green and pink! Definitely using this for future outfit inspiration!

    1. Yes I do plan on sharing some photos at a later date! I'm still not sure how I plan on doing that... cropping out heads? Profile views? I'll save that to deliberate later :)

    1. Hahaha, you know me well. If we had eloped, I probably would've worn a tshirt and jeans ;) Alas, our civil ceremony was a bit formal (but still casual, if that makes any sense?), so I did wear a long dress. Hope I'll get photos back soon so I can share!

      Thanks for the well wishes, Monica!

  12. Ok I totally thought I missed something as well! Congrats on getting married!! I originally thought you just got engaged, but married? Wow! :) glad that you're so nonchalant about it, since most brides these days make a huge fuss over the whole engagement/wedding (myself included but glad it was pre-twitter/pre-blog/pre-pinterest days or else I totally would have overshared all over the Internet. :)

    So funny that you already call him DH on the blog. I guess that's what he is, but it's still weird since I was so used to him being referred to as your boyfriend!

    1. Thank you, Kimmie!

      Pshhh, I beg to differ. The way you handled pregnancy with baby L was completely normal in this day and age :)

      I hadn't realized my tweet was so vague, lol. I should've known better because I read an article recently talking about the rising popularity in man-gagement rings. Interesting concept and fair I'd say.

  13. Congratulations, Cee! I too can't wait to see what you wore...
    My H and I were together for 8.5 years before we finally got married in May, so I can relate to the lack of fuss. Wishing much happiness for you and your new hubs ;)

    1. Thank you, Alissa! I didn't wear anything extravagant, but did wear a long dress. I'm already trying to figure out ways to rewear it in everyday life, hehe.

  14. Congratulations! It's probably a good thing that you don't feel any different. If you are happy that is all that matters!

    1. Thank you! Yes, a piece of paper won't change that we're happy together, so that's all that really matters *cues cheesy music*

  15. Congratulations!

    After four years, I still forget to wear my wedding rings. Hubby wears his all the time. :P

    1. Thank you! I can see myself not changing my ways in four year's time either, lol. As for DH, only time will tell :)

    1. Thank you! I figured this post was a good time as any with the ring being so visible and all :) And I'm sure it beats my usual "Hope you had a great weekend!", lol.

  17. Congratulations Cee and DH!I hope we can get see some wedding photo. The biggest change for me when I got married was moving to a new city with my husband.

    1. Goodness, what a way to start your new lives together, embarking on an adventure in a new place.

      Yes I do plan on putting up some photos once I get them. I'm hoping it will be soon :) Thank you, Ying, for the well wishes!

  18. Congrats! Welcome to the married life! I wanted something like a civil ceremony too but my husband's family wouldn't have that. Since the Mr. and I lived together for 3 years...nothing really felt different except another ring...haha So I bet people always ask you.."how's married life" and you want to roll your eyes..haha jk

    1. Thank you, Eliz! Yup, been getting that question a lot. Understandable, so I try to restrain the eye-rolling ;) One of my best gfs gets it, so she didn't even bother asking. Turns out, her husband couldn't resist, so we both rolled our eyes at him, haha.

    Congratulations Cee - now time to reveal some photos from your big day, please.

    1. *scratches head* If that is indeed foreign currency, it's not mine (and I should've picked it up!) lol
