Le Monsieur and I try to arrange an evening out on our own every week or two. Usually our venue is casual, but once in a while we take it up a notch, and step out for a symphony concert or dinner at a nice restaurant. I’ve worn this Zara jacket before with jeans, but wanted to try it as part of a dressier ensemble. I kept all of the other pieces simple and let the jacket take center stage.
It’s a bit of a change for me to wear nude shoes with darker pants (and it’s breaking yet another of the Fashion Rules I was raised with, “shoes should never be a lighter color than your pants”), but black heels felt too dark, and blue too matchy. I love these shoes; they are very comfortable and even if they aren’t a perfect match for my skin tone are a go-with-everything neutral.
Doing a High-Low mix here…necklaces are Chanel and J.Crew, but I think they work together nicely.
How often do you have the opportunity to dress up for an evening out?
