If you are looking forward to attending holiday events this year, you may already be looking for something special to wear. When I try to shop for an occasion, I never have any luck, so I always try to have something on hand for any event.
Wearing something dressy with a business look to take it to the next level feels so much more authentic than buying a whole outfit that might never be worn again.
The gray blazer is an easy piece to add over a simple top and a comfortable pair of jeans. The black slacks are the perfect weight and length to wear with high heels or heeled booties. The sparkly camisole took the two pieces in a much dressier direction. Wearing black heels and a few pieces of festive jewelry completed the look. A small clutch in gunmetal complemented the other gray items without adding too much bling.
The camisole is at least three years old. A similar one is here. You may also find sequined tops in thrift stores, consignment stores, and yard sales. I know that my special occasion wear won’t be used often, so I always look for a bargain. A similar blazer is here. The black slacks are here. Similar Shoes – Bracelet – Ring – Earrings – Clutch. My lip color is Girls’ Night here.
Mr. Mickey’s color choices for the evening also included gray. Many of his clothing items are from the Polo Store. We enjoyed having dinner at Gourmet and Company again on Friday evening. We decided to dress up a little and make it a festive evening to celebrate the arrival of fall.
Even though these items aren’t on the menu now, Chef John prepared them for us since he knows how much Mr. Mickey enjoys deviled eggs and pappardelle pasta with vegetables.
Sous Chef Chris Jones’ latest addition to the dessert menu is Muddy Pond Sorghum Pie with candied pecans, hard cider ice cream, pickled squash caramel. It was delicious!
