We were surprised with an unexpected dinner invitation today…so I decided I would take my pleated, nude-pink BB Dakota dress out for the evening (and my husband, too, of course!!)
When you’re wearing a sort of non-colour like this, it’s a wonderful opportunity to choose some accessories that will make a bit of a style statement; alternatively, you can play it totally the other way and go for a very pared down, almost minimalistic feel.
I think I managed to hit it right in the middle!! My black sandal/bootie hybrids and this studded MK bag are definitely edgy – but certainly not “over the top” – while the leopard cuff and amber pendant add just the smallest touch of colour and pattern to a dress that’s really all about texture, texture, texture!!
As it happened, our night started with a game of backyard bocce; and ended with a GIGANTIC spider (omg!) hitching a ride indoors on my oblivious hubby’s shoulder…both of which necessitated some rather, ahem, dexterous maneuvering on my part (bocce was fun, but I couldn’t get away from that eight-legged monster fast enough!!)
Good thing I wasn’t all body-con and stilettos; the last thing I need right now is another broken foot!!
