BLACK & WHITE WITH CAMEL
I love to begin an outfit with black or navy or gray and white as my base, and then add in another color for interest. Camel is a favorite all year, and I’ll bring it in either through a clothing item or an accessory. Here, I’m combining camel/tan pants with a white tee, charcoal tunic sweater, and black pointy-toe penny loafers.
These particular pants are a pull-on style. They aren’t as tight as leggings, but the elasticized waist gives them the same comfort. I love these or any slim-fit pant with longer-length (to cover my rear) sweaters, shirts, and jackets.
I wore this outfit recently for a casual dinner out with my husband on a cool, overcast (rain forecasted) evening. I chose comfortable flat shoes, since we planned to do a lot of walking before dinner at the (luckily, mostly covered) shopping and dining center. My crossbody isn’t very big, but it still carries my wallet, keys, iPhone, lipstick, and tissues. Unfortunately, it doesn’t fit my 4-ounce glass salad-dressing bottle, so I carried it in a separate black canvas shopping bag.
All of my items are classics I’ve had for quite some time, but I found very similar items on line, and I’ve listed them all down below.
Although we haven’t had much of a winter in terms of weather, I’m still so grateful spring is on the way. That’s when our town begins to slow down once again, since most of our visitors return home, and life (and the traffic) becomes much less hectic–more like it was when I first moved to Naples back in 1984.
Happy first day of spring and here’s to much-less hectic living coming your way, too!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.

Nice outfit! I love the colors together. I noticed you have a simple gold wedding band on. I work out during the week and always have to remove my diamond wedding set before I go. I am thinking of getting a gold wedding band to wear during the week. I love the classic look of a plain gold band. Either that or a vintage looking band without diamonds. They are hard to find though.
Hi, Lynne! This band was a gift my father gave to my mother for their 13th wedding anniversary (it’s inscribed underneath). She gave it to me about 5 or 6 years ago, since she didn’t wear it any longer. It’s especially meaningful to me, because my father passed away 12 years ago. If you don’t have luck finding your gold band, you might try amazon. Thank you for visiting my blog! ~ Janis
