When the rain is falling, or it gets too hot to enjoy outdoor activities, we like to go to a matinee movie or play. On Saturday, we attended the afternoon performance of Steel Magnolias at the Barter Theatre.
I have been attending the Barter since childhood, so I know that wearing a jacket or cardigan, even in summer, may be necessary. Air conditioning always feels too cold for me. I wore a white linen Calvin Klein jacket that I found on sale at Stein Mart a couple of years ago. The light gray tank top is by A’Nue Ligne. (Their sizes run very small!) I am wearing a size extra large. I buy what fits and ignore the size tags. The necklace was a gift from Mr. Mickey. The bag is a couple of years old. The tweed pumps are by J. Reneé from last year. I also wore them here.
Since we always try to cram too much into every date, we were running very short on time. I had less than five minutes to get dressed. I am grateful that I have learned how to throw on separates that I know and trust when there is no time to get creative with my look. I hope the examples help you put your basics to good use as well.
After the play, we had a delightful evening meal at Sister’s American Grill in the Martha. We always valet park at the Martha and then walk across the street to see the play. Our life together includes doing fun things as often as we can. We celebrate even small events and try to enjoy every day instead of working to pay bills and living for vacation time. A good life is a journey, not a destination.
Did you see that the July Vogue (USA) shows a ten-page spread on adding scarves to your look? I am thrilled to see that women of all ages are once again, embracing my favorite accessory.
