Adding touches of your personality makes classic basic pieces more interesting and expands the versatility of your wardrobe. The spices and herbs that give your dishes depth of flavor can be compared to the accessories that make simple clothing combinations look different for various occasions. I’ve worn all these elements many times in different combinations. A prerequisite for every new purchase is that it must go with several items I already own.
The jacket is the newest piece in my look. It complements almost all of my sweaters and pants. I found it here on sale a few months ago. I’ve worn it several times already, so it was a wise choice. It kept me warm on Saturday evening when we ventured out to have dinner at our favorite local restaurant here. Now that most of our friends and we have been vaccinated, we are cautiously going out a bit more often.
The pants are about three years old, but here is a similar pair. I’ve worn the black sweater with jeans, a black pencil skirt, and nutmeg brown slacks. I found the sweater here. The same black pants and sweater have been worn with boots and a jean jacket to create a more casual look. The red wool jacket has been combined with a white shirt and faded jeans as well as navy trousers and a navy silk blouse.
I avoid gold and black animal prints, but this little white background bag has gotten lots of use. Here is a similar animal print clutch. Similar Earrings – Ring – Bracelet. The pearl tassel necklace is here. (Use the code SAS10 For $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.)
I bought the Vince Camuto pumps in three colorways. When you find something you love, get it while you can. The shoes are relatively comfortable (for heels). I no longer buy four-inch stilettos, but I still enjoy wearing lower heels on special evenings. The shoes are here and here is another similar style.
Mr. Mickey says Saturday is a reason to celebrate so we did.
He loves deviled eggs almost as much as the house-made warm from the oven asiago bread. His entree was a smoked trout dip appetizer.
I ordered my favorite salad with seared diver scallops, and we shared a wonderful side dish, including delicious fresh morel mushrooms.
Shared house-made daily ice cream in three different flavors capped off the evening in grand style.
My skin and hair care products are here and here. The lip color is Girls’ Night Classic Red here.
