Chilly Date Night

Spring continues to tease us. The temperatures dipped into the forties last evening and the wind was fierce which means I looked for something warm for Friday date night with friends.


Because of the high winds we moved the photo session inside to my foyer on this evening.


All the elements are repeats but I'll recap them for you. The wool double breasted jacket with three quarter sleeves is from Talbots last fall. The three quarter sleeve jacket is a great choice for cooler spring weather. This time I paired it with black wider leg pants and Ros Hommerson low heeled pumps. I was sad to get an email from Ros Hommerson announcing that they are going out of business. All of their inventory is half price now. 

When I wear wider leg pants I always wear them with a lower heeled shoe for safety reasons as well as the fact that it seems to be a much better balance.

Under the jacket is a black tank top from Stein Mart and I carried a black leather clutch with gold trim. My earrings are gold and black and the bangle is the same red as the jacket with gold trim. I rarely wear gold jewelry because of my skin tone and gray hair. 

 
The odd little "room" to the right of this image is the entryway to the downstairs.

I hope this repairing of items you may have seen many times before, helps you to look at the pieces in your own closet with new possibilities in mind.

Thank you for reading!
