The Saturday before last, Mark and I journeyed to Michigan, late in the afternoon. You see, we had been invited to a surprise birthday party for a dear family friend. The celebratory dinner gathering was scheduled to begin early in the evening and was to be held (primarily) outdoors.
White jeans are always a great solution for summertime gatherings such as this. I think they have "classic elegance" written all over their casual selves! A scarf is always a nice touch too--especially when it's still chilly out.
A statement handbag, gold tone jewelry and matching flats complete this look. What do you think? I can happily report that I kept relatively warm, was comfy and felt quite pulled together--all at the same time. Even better, the guest of honor ended up being totally surprised about the party (always priceless), I enjoyed savoring time with friends and loved ones, and the rain held off (the sun even came out for a while!). Now, that's what I call a fab evening!
