We’ve been out of the loop for a little, thinking about all things large and small…
Still in major wardrobe edit mode, always affirming to daughters and clients good things take time, and often longer than expected. We’ve been editing the lifestyle as well, and have found comfort and joy in simple things like polishing copper pots, and silver flatware. First daughter tells me she won’t come home for Thanksgiving unless the house is clean, so clean we are.
Professional life has been edited as well, and that’s a good turn after doing work that was really only moderate at best while constantly being pulled in multiple directions. Black and blue? Yes, change can hurt.
On the style front husband and I attended the most beautiful gala ever; the opening celebrating Picasso: The Artist and His Models at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, presenting sponsor being the extraordinary Delaware North. Food was art, and art was Picasso, absolutely soul-stirring.
Wore one of our favorite color combinations, black and blue, or more specifically black and navy. Even when dressing for black tie events we never seem to have a lot of time, so like to keep things easy. Easy it was, in separates: a long satin-paneled crepe maxi skirt, and a navy satin draped blouse. Both pieces were new for this event and go with the current wardrobe edit going on, and both pieces will be worn again and again, and separately, giving credit to buy well, wear more. Our recent clothing purchases have been relatively lean, given that clothes are our thing, really wanted something new for this event. Black suede sandals are one of our closet basics, and those were picked up while traveling four years ago.
It’s been twelve days since last blog post, have really missed you all, it’s just that we have had life going on all around, as it should…
Every day dress, and black and blue. xoxo
