Wear It Wednesday, Get Dressed

On a recent weekend getaway, we stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel as we normally do when we go to Knoxville.

This is a really lovely and rather pricey hotel with a very professional staff. The rooms and public spaces are decorated very nicely.

On Sunday morning we dressed to go down to the hotel restaurant to have tea and enjoy the breakfast buffet which includes a large variety of fresh fruits.

When we walked in, the host asked if we were going to church. A bit puzzled, we said no, just to breakfast. As I looked around the packed restaurant there was at least one person at each table wearing a ball cap... while eating. We quickly realized that some people were still in pajama bottoms with a sweat shirt thrown on for a top. One woman didn't even have on shoes, just dirty white socks! 

Men walked in before their female partners and just sat down whether she was seated or not. What happened to manners and getting dressed before going out in public? I am sad to see that people don't seem to know or care that you should get dressed in actual clothes before going out in public especially if you are going out to eat in a nice restaurant. 

You may say that it is more important to be comfortable in your jeans and tee. Keep in mind that is what I am wearing here... jeans and a tee.

The dark rinse jeggings are from Chico's. I wore them with a black long sleeve tee from Kohl's. The vintage St. John Country jacket was given to me by my dear friend Mitzi. The calf hair d'Orsay animal print shoes are by Sam Edelman via Nordstrom.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
