Wearing only two colors and repeating one of them can pull together a look in elegant style. Below, dove gray is repeated in the cardigan, necklace, bag, and cap toe of the cream-colored shoes. A column of one color as a base gives one unbroken line from head to toe so that I look taller and more slender, even if that color is white. I wear white jeans on sunny days all year round since the weight of the fabric, rather than the color, determines the season for wear.
When we go out to dinner, I like to wear a shorter necklace so that it shows while I am seated at the table. I usually pull up long sleeves to a three-quarter length but keep the bulk of the fabric near the elbow for the most flattering effect. A smaller bag holds all I need for dinner or brunch.I place evening bags in my lap under my napkin or behind the small of my back in my chair. A bag hook is excellent for hanging a bag from the table beside you.
Earlier in the year, I decided to let my hair grow to a softer, more feminine medium-length layered bob. My stylist trimmed the length only at the back a few times to allow the front to catch up.
A similar French coin necklace is here. (Use the code SAS10 for $10 off any one item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.) The cardigan is here. The mini bag is by the brand By Far. The tank is here. The jeans are here. The cap toe mules are on sale here. (The taupe and black pair were so comfortable, I also got these to wear with white jeans.)

Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts for my father. I am humbled and overwhelmed by your lovely comments. Dad was released from the hospital on Monday, so I am staying with my parents a lot this week to help with his continuing care. My sister and her husband are still recovering from Omicron. We are deeply grateful to the professional team and all the specialists who cared for my dad at Franklin Woods Community Hospital.
Wednesday was my father’s birthday, and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day. He sends his gratitude for your prayers.
