Exploring the local countryside before enjoying a light meal at my table is a lovely way to enjoy time together. We took another drive through the vast rolling farmland surrounding the Nolichucky River last week.
I wore casual basic pieces and some of my most comfortable shoes. The Louise Et Cie derbies are about three years old. I baby them because this style is difficult to find at a reasonable price but oh so comfortable to wear. I found one similar style here.
My top is black on black animal print. I found it in the athletic wear section at T.J.Maxx last year. It is a good long sleeve foundation item because it adds no bulk under lightweight jackets or sweaters. A similar top is here. The crimson jacket is here. The jeans are here. The bag is here.
Later in the evening, we enjoyed a loaf of warm artisan bread made with asiago cheese and sundried tomatoes. I also served hummus, spicy pimento cheese, feta stuffed olives, nuts, and celery sticks with celebratory champagne. Mr. Mickey arrived with cards, chocolate, and flowers as he has countless times over the fifteen years we have known each other.
Congratulations, Marilyn Ackerman! You are the winner of the sequined evening clutch.
