Best friends of hubby and I just called to say they won in a work Christmas raffle last night a dinner for four at a fairly swanky restaurant for tonight and would love for us to join them. How sweet!
Hubby and I are busy with a fair bit of running around today and normally a last minute invite like this would throw me into a tizzy due to lack of a true dressy capsule and lack of time to do anything about it. But not this time :)
In probably less than 5 minutes I put together this outfit - my dark red EF dress topped with my sparkly open knit dramatic hi-lo cardigan. Love how the dark red peeks through the open weave in the sleeves and body of the cardigan.
I will wear nude hose and my animal print Cole Haan pumps, carry a vintage gold clutch (it was my grandmother's). I'll add my michael kors gold mesh bangle for jewellery. Red specs and bold red lip will be the finishing touches.
Over top of everything when I head out the door will be my berry coloured cashmere coat. It is delightfully mild here right now and since we'll just be walking from house to car to restaurant, this will be plenty warm.
I hope this will come across as festive. It is such a relief to be able to shop my small wardrobe.
