Can you believe that it is Friday already? I am ready for the weekend and my Saturday night date night with Joe. I have begun to look forward to this night, and I’ve been checking out new places for us to go to eat. The Tavern is the restaurant that I am leaning toward, and since they serve Oysters Rockefeller, I’m pretty sure that I can talk Joe into eating there. Since corduroy is trending this year, I was thinking about wearing this outfit Saturday night.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been a huge fan of corduroy for as long as I can remember. I love the gentle swish it makes when you walk as your legs rub together. Lol! I seem to go more toward the thin wale variety, but I love the wide-wale look on men. The last time that I remember seeing Joe wear corduroy was when we first started dating. He had some daisy duke shorts that were thin wale corduroy. Lol! Now you know why I married him.
You know that I love my animal print, especially when I can get a different version or print. I get tired of seeing the same leopard print color all of the time, so a snow leopard, or gray leopard, is a nice alternative. This sweater also has a large banded bottom, and I love that look since it hugs my hips and creates a lovely drape over my belly. This is a great tummy hiding sweater, so it gets a big checkmark in that department.
I also like that the sweater features a balloon sleeve, but they aren’t oversized and instead only balloon around the wrist. This is a nice weight sweater, and the material is soft. I think the sweater runs true to size, and I am wearing a medium for sizing reference.
I’m sure you are getting tired of seeing me carrying my Tory Burch McGraw handbag, but it is so versatile and perfect for fall. This color is sold out, but a claret color is still available. However, I’ll see if I can find some similar options for you that are more affordable. Even though my corduroy pants are black, it still looks great with this handbag.
These black Land’s End straight-leg corduroy pants are pretty dang sharp looking! Because they are straight-leg pants, they have more room in the thigh area and are a tad bit loose. Black corduroy looks elegant, which is funny since corduroy is more of a casual style. However, I can see myself wearing these with large chunky sweaters around the holidays, and I’ll get lots of wear from them. I am wearing my usual size 10 with a 32″ inseam. They are a little loose on me, so I might need to size down one size.
Lifestride shoes are comfortable, so I pick them a lot. I know the brand, and I know what to expect from the shoes. Of course, I always want style, so that is why I chose these mixed media pumps. I love the shiny and the matte contrast in the material, and I think it is a great detail. These pumps run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9. For those who can’t wear heels, here are some other options.
Someone mentioned that I wasn’t wearing as much jewelry lately and wondered why. Truthfully, the biggest reason is that half of my things are in Grundy and half in Abingdon. I never seem to have the jewelry that I need when taking photos, so I have to utilize whatever I have on hand. Whew! Living between two homes is a pain in the rumpus!
The jewelry I have on is my AVI large hoop earrings, my 18kt gold vermeil cross necklace ((these two items go with me no matter which house I am at), the fallyn cuff bracelet, and I think they all look great with the casual look of the corduroy pants.
