Holiday Dressing

Do you feel at a loss when it comes time to get dressed for holiday parties?

We have as many as three events in one evening planned for the month of December. It is a good thing I have collected so many interesting textures and shapes in black. Those pieces can all work together to create different looks that can be worn for any event but this formula works especially well for evening.

I found the close fitting V neck long sleeve tee at T.J.Maxx last year. The wide leg very soft thin knit pants are by Evan Picone from Dillard's. The black knit ruana is from Chico's last year. The suede Sam Edelman pumps are from Nordstrom. The statement faux turquoise necklace is from Chico's. 

When wearing all one color it is important to mix textures. It looks much richer and the variations in depth of colors matters less. Always wear a black bra under dark clothing.

The closeup below shows the textures and details of each item. The ruana feels like a luxurious silk sweater. 

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

I love this look and you have inspired me to stop coloring my hair. There is nothing frumpy about your silver tresses.
