Top: Old Navy
Beaded Bracelet: Lenny and Eve (Christmas gift from my friend Barbara)
Silver Bracelet: Purchased from a boutique
Today I had a friend over for lunch. I have been holed up in my home fore the past two days deep cleaning, registering for grad school classes, cooking and starting a new food blog. Needless to say, for he last few days I have not looked presentable to the world at all!
Well today I had an excuse to get dressed up. I invited a friend over for lunch. I will admit that I was tempted to wear my yoga pants, but a last minute trip to the grocery store forced me into 'real' pants.
As you can see I kept the outfit casual, but stylish. I found this top at Old Navy years ago. This top holds a special memory for me. I was wearing this top when my husband became a Major in the United States Army (his promotion ceremony). We were in a room full of people, I had just had my first knee surgery so I was in a huge knee brace that prevented me from bending my leg at all. Generally, you dress up for a promotion ceremony. I would've dressed up more, but the brace was so uncomfortable that I had to wear pants underneath. I wore black slacks, flats and this top. This top was the 'fancy factor' in the whole ensemble.
I love this bracelet!!! I could wear an armful of them! It is from a company called Lenny and Eve. They make all kinds of jewelry, but the beaded bracelets are my favorite.

I LOVE to wear black!!! I have another outfit from this week (that I will share after it's been washed since the sweater met with an unfortunate oatmeal accident before a picture could be taken) that is black too.
Generally people say not to wear black, black is depressing. I don't think so. Wearing black gives you a blank canvas to work with. Any color goes with black. Black is sliming. Black is classically stylish. Black is wonderful!
For the last two days I have worn black and white together. Love, Love, Love, Love!
Remember this vest? I wore it over the summer with a black tank top, rolled up boyfriend jeans and sandals. This vest is a great example of how you can take one piece and bring it into all seasons. I wore a long sleeved top, skinny jeans and boots with the vest for a Winter appropriate look.
Sorry this picture is so dark. My kids get home from school around 4 (and yes, I pick them up and we live less than 1 mile away). By the time we get in and settled , the sun is already setting so we hurry outside so we can have as much light as possible. I may just start asking my neighbor to take my pics everyday so we can actually have some light. Oh the joys of mountain living!
