HOLIDAY DATE NIGHT WITH MY HUSBAND
When it comes to clothing, I think ivory is the first color with which I ever fell in love. It’s such a soothing tone. I have it in a variety of pieces, including accessories, because so many other colors go with it. Plus, it looks wonderful on its own in one long, lean column.
This “date night with my husband” outfit is several different shades of ivory mixed with a skirt, but I also like to wear this shirt and cardigan with ivory pants. I could have chosen higher heel pumps, but opted for these kitten heels, because I knew we’d be walking several blocks after dinner at Ridgway Bar & Grill, viewing the holiday lights along Third Street South.
It’s been a while since my husband and I dined downtown so close to Christmas, and I was amazed at how busy it was. It seems like only yesterday when our little Naples was still just a small, mostly undiscovered town.
Then again…maybe it has been three decades since then. It certainly isn’t undiscovered anymore. It wasn’t even 5:30 in the evening when we arrived, and we were lucky to find a parking space!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. If you celebrate Christmas, I send you wishes for a peaceful, merry day–and to all of you, have a happy, healthy New Year!
