The twin sets from our school days included a slim fitting cardigan with a matching tank or 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 1940’s, 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 have 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. It is here on their website. The most recent Coupon Code for My Fair Lady is (Spring18) for 15% off until the end of April.
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. The necklaces are both from French Kande. (Purchases made from this affiliate link will result in a small commission paid to me.) Dolce & Gabbana is the maker of the sunglasses. The soft cotton blend scarf in geometric prints is from my shop here.
Layers can always 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.
I hope that my fashion tips and tricks are helpful to you. Have a beautiful day!
