One of our couple traditions is to have a date night on Wednesday. It gives us a chance to unwind, get caught up on the busy first part of the week and plan our weekend ahead.
For this date night, I wore soft fully lined black crepe pants, a black tank and a lightweight, almost sheer blue jacket all from Chico's last year.
The shorter necklace is from Nouvique also worn here and the longer necklace is from Chico's. The black strappy sandals are old from JCPenny. The black ruffled evening bag is also old.
I don't work for Chico's and I don't get free clothes from them but you might think so. Clothes that last for more than one season and keep their shape after going through the laundry are worth the investment. In my area, there are only a couple of stores in which I shop for that reason.
Tomorrow is my fifty-seventh birthday. There are a few messages I would like to share with my teenage self if that were possible.
1. Happiness is an inside job.
2. Find out what you are capable of accomplishing on your own before you commit to a relationship or marry.
3. Become a vegetarian now for the best lifelong health and weight control possible.
4.You would be wise to buy one timeless top quality black pair of pants that you can wear for many years, rather than to buy five pairs of cheap pants that will only be worn for one season at most.
5. Imagine an event that you might actually be attending. Go to your closet and put together an outfit for that event. Your wardrobe should allow you to participate in any activity without causing stress or emergency shopping when it comes time to get dressed. Plan your purchases accordingly throughout your life.
