Motown in Tennessee!

Last evening Mr. Mickey and I had a wonderful world-class gourmet meal and saw a fabulous Las Vegas show right here in Tennessee!

The sun was shining all day so warmer weather has finally arrived. Oh, joy!

My three-quarter length sleeve jacket is several years old. I paired it with a fuchsia tank from Chico's and a pair of dark gray pants from Stein Mart.

The faux leather clutch is from T.J. Maxx and the ruffle trim black leather platform sandals are from Kohl's a couple of years ago. 

Mr. Mickey and I always plan what to wear so as not to clash with each other. When I arrived to pick him up he looked so dashing in his black and white silk jacket and black sweater! 

The patterns in our jackets look strange in the photos so I am including close-ups of them.

Jacob and John are the chef and sous-chef at Gourmet & Company in Johnson City. Last evening they prepared a pasta dish that was absolutely one of the best meals either of us has ever enjoyed.

The ravioli was made with porcini mushrooms and stuffed with goat cheese and spinach. A roasted shrimp topped each and a perfect orchid was placed in the center. Bravo gentlemen! 

The Johnson City Symphony Orchestra closed out their season with special guests. Spectrum is a group of four very talented gentlemen who performed in Las Vegas for several years. The evening's performance was a tribute to many of the wonderful Motown classics we grew up listening to. We were sitting in fourth-row center seats! I felt like a VIP all evening. 

Thank you for reading my blog and for all of your lovely comments.

I hope you have a great week!

What a handsome couple! Good idea to show a closeup of the patterns on your jackets. You look like you are ready for warmer temps with your pretty pedicure! The winter seemed to be unending and we are finally enjoying some beautiful days. The food looks yummy and the entertainment fabulous. It's nice to have a wonderful evening out with a wonderful companion.

I bet you two looked picture perfect together. One day maybe you can set up a tripod and take a picture together. Sounds like a lovely evening with excellent company.

This sounds like a perfect evening! You and Mr. Mickey look wonderful. Isn't it a pleasure to be able to forgo all the outerwear and just plan a fabulous outfit! It has been quite warm in Vancouver the last few weeks and I have really been enjoying my lighter clothing.

You and your husband are adorable! This is odd to say, but you look so much like my mother-in- law. Like you she was a beautiful woman and seeing you reminds me of fond memories. Thank you the kind and supportive comments at my blog. Your jacket is lovely.

Susan, I'm in love with your jacket and, of course, with that pop of color underneath! You look so polished but not the slightest bit austere!
Thank you for your comment on my blog! I love your things and as you are my neighbor I'll be following your blog from now on ;-)

That's another take on print mixing! You both look great! Nice to see the fellows out and about with us, isn't it!
