Hermes Scarf Friend was at meetings in the city on the same day she was to introduce a guest speaker at our Rotary meeting. She was worried she might be stuck in traffic and wouldn't make it back to town in time so she gave me a type written introduction and instructions to take her place at the head table with her guest speaker.
Update: HSF got there in time so I got away with cords and a sweater...I saved this outfit for our Christmas party tonight!
Normally I would wear something casual to Rotary...critters and a sweater, dressier jeans and a cute top. But, sitting at the head table means everyone will be staring at me all night and I prefer to wear something nice to them to look at when I am front and center.
The dress is not denim...it's chambray, whatever that is. It's not my usual sort of thing but I bought it on a whim and have been determined to work it into my outfits. Not wanting anyone to confuse me with a farm girl I opted to wear a Dior scarf with it (yes, I realize that's not a Dior scarf we are looking at but the colours are very similar to the Dior I have) along with navy blue tights, black patent pumps and a navy blue purse. Do I really need to say I also wore pearls? A spritz of my usual perfume? The one that all the men like by the way. Forget all of your expensive designer hoity toity bottles of celebrity endorsed perfumes....I've had more compliments on my $20.00 Philosophy elixir than any other I have ever worn.
Have a fabulous day!
