The twin sets from our school days included a slim fitting cardigan with a matching shell, and most of my friends wore a little strand of pearls with them. This combo was often paired with a pleated skirt, knee socks, and penny loafers. Preppy looks have been classics since the 1940s, but I’m afraid those slim-fitting elements no longer look good on my soft rounded curves. Thankfully, there are also more grown-up options to help us feel confident and look well dressed without much effort.
We recently visited Abingdon, Virginia, to enjoy dinner at Sister’s American Grill located inside the Martha. There was time to explore before our dinner reservation, so we visited Foxglove Antiques and a few other shops on Main Street.
Dinner was delicious! A shared dessert makes the evening a little more special.
While traveling or when the weather changes a lot in just a few hours, a twinset like this one in navy and cream is the perfect thing to wear. This twinset by IC Collection was a gift from My Fair Lady.
The smooth waistband pants in the same cream color are from Belk last year. The shoes were from DSW a couple of years ago. The bag is also a couple of years old.
Layers can be worn in several ways to remain comfortable all day. These more elevated layers provide a look that could take me to dinner, the theater, a wedding, or any other special event.
