Various solid color separates in the wardrobe allow us to style prints or statement pieces differently. A variety of accessories and basic neutrals mean I can always find something to wear from what I already own. I am never successful when I have to go “emergency” shopping for an event.
The other items shown are more than a year old. A similar belt is here. The black satchel is now on sale here. My skincare routine is here. The lip color I’m wearing in these photos is Orchid here.
I often get asked how I decide to wear nude shoes over other colors. The more skin exposed, the more important nude shoes become. If you want to elongate your legs, nude shoes and hose (or bare legs) will do the trick. Every horizontal line you add will make you look shorter and broader. Horizontal lines can come from the clothing layers and designs but also darker, heavier shoes and belts.
After avoiding dresses for more than a decade, I now embrace the midi-length for versatility and comfort in hot, humid weather.
Passers-by stopped to snap this photo for us. Sunday was Mr. Mickey’s birthday, so I treated him to his favorite champagne brunch. The Sunday Brunch at the Omni Grove Park Inn just reopened a couple of weeks ago.
A navy blazer over a chambray shirt and tan slacks is a favorite combo for Mr. Mickey when the dress code calls for “Resort Casual.”
