An early dinner at Gourmet and Company, followed by a flawless performance by the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra, is the perfect date night for us.
My spirit longs for warm weather and sunshine, so I wanted to wear something colorful, even though the rain was coming down and the night was cold. A Clara Sunwoo tunic with long sleeves in a deep red with my chunky red coral necklace and a DVF gunmetal clutch bag to accessorize it felt festive and appropriate. The straight leg black pants with a wide, smooth waistband are by Nic & Zoe via Nordstrom. The Anne Klein shoes are a few years old. I rarely wear heels now, other than for date night or maybe lunch with friends. The snow leopard print coat (not fur) was from Loft a few years ago.
I fell in love with this necklace as soon as I saw it in J.M. Bradford on Hilton Head Island a few years ago. It weighs about ten pounds!
Accessories can elevate a simple outfit and take it to a more dressy level or bring it down to an everyday casual look if the clothing items are without gimmicks or trendy features. I could also wear this tunic with white pants and sandals with a long tassel necklace for a more casual warm weather daytime look. I always look for clothing that can be worn in a variety of ways with different accessories.
