A Family Gathering

For a very casual gathering of extended family, I wore jeans and a long sleeve tee.

The tee, jeans and necklace are all from Chico's. The boiled wool jacket is from Appleseed's

The Coach bag was purchased at their outlet store in Blowing Rock, North Carolina last summer. The shoes are from Macy's and they are worn with beige Hanes pantyhose from Target.

The gathering was hosted by my beautiful cousin Rhonda in her fabulous new home by the lake. My mother and I delighted in watching the gulls and blue herons and geese from the huge windows that offer a panoramic view of the lake. 

Mickey and I had to stop on the road leading away from their home to wait for about forty whitetail deer of all ages and sizes to pass in front of and around us. I was thrilled to be part of that surreal scene.

I hope your new year is filled with happiness and great style.
Thank you for reading my blog and for joining me on this journey through midlife and beyond.

This is another great outfit for what sounds like a fabulous, relaxed day. And how lucky you are to still have your mother with you. Enjoy your New Year celebrations and then on to a new year and new adventures. Wishing you and Mr. Mickey all the best 2014 has to offer.

Thank you, Susan, for educating me (and your other blog readers) regarding affordable, elegant outfits. You have shown me that a timeless, classic look doesn't have to be outrageously expensive, and that simplicity is truly elegance.

Simplicity is truly elegance, and chic, I might add. I have simplified some of my outfits after studying what you wear for various occasions. You are indeed fortunate to have your mother with you. Cousin Rhoda does have a lovely home. Thanks for sharing the story about the deer..quite a sight.
