Wear white all year long!
An old etiquette rule from the early nineteen hundreds which states you should only wear white between Memorial Day and Labor Day still persists today. That is an outdated idea that came from wealthy women who lived in the city during the winter and summered in their second homes by the sea or in a lodge on a mountain. Most people now dress for the weather, not the calendar.
Straight leg off white jeans are timeless and seasonless. I've paired them with an off white tank and a fabulous metallic white lighter than air sweater from Cali and York.
When you wear one of these delicate sweaters you get the added bonus of coverage without the weight and formality of a jacket. This one was perfect for an early casual dinner at a new local cafe'.
Since the sweater is almost sheer I opted to wear the same pale creamy white colors underneath for a long lean unbroken line from the metallic sandals up.
Another tip: Pushing or rolling up your sleeves and wearing a scoop or V-neck top makes one appear taller and more slender.
The bold statement necklace stands out so I kept all the other accessories minimal.
Wearing jewelry or bags that tend to pick or snag can be disastrous with a delicate sweater such as this one.
This fabulous Broadway Nights Sweater is now on sale for a very limited time at Cali and York. It is a very flattering and versatile piece which can be worn almost year round.
These photos were shot by Mr. Mickey in Jonesborough, the oldest town in Tennessee.
Being small business owners who are also very involved in the political process, Mr. Mickey and I always try to support new businesses in our area. We visited a new cafe' in Jonesborough called the Black Olive last evening. It is a lovely family style Italian restaurant with great service and a huge menu. We wish them success!
It is an honor to partner with Cali and York the company which sponsored this post.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond.
The second fifty years really are the best!
