I still enjoy wearing my remaining few pairs of heels when I will only be walking into the restaurant and staying seated for most of the evening. They are considered my ‘limousine shoes’ at this stage of life.
When there is a lot of walking or standing during a special occasion, I wear low heeled or flat shoes. If they have almond shaped or pointed toes and the material is metallic, patent leather, suede, embroidered velvet or well cared for and polished leather they can be appropriate with evening attire.
We snapped these photos on our way to experience the delightful new fall menu at Gourmet & Company after running a few errands for Mr. Mickey. The temperature was sixty-four F, and there was a slight breeze but not late enough in the year to bring out the sheer black hose. I never wear knee-high hose or socks. The line where they end is always visible under your pants even with jeans unless you have very slender calves. I wear sheer pantyhose or the more casual opaque tights to give a smooth line all the way up. If the weather is cold and the look is casual, I add short crew socks or opaque tights to keep warm.
The shoes are by Franco Sarto here. The box clutch is a few years old, similar here. The rings have also been collected over the years. A similar bold style in silver is here. The slim black ankle pants are by Nic+Zoe similar here. I am also wearing a black tank from Chico’s so that I can unbutton the jacket while seated.
