Leather colour accessories and ... the city by night!


I was in the waiting room of a medical center the other day. As the place was well lighted and there was no one around ... why don't shoot for a post??  ( it's surprising how creative a blogger can be ... :-)


I was out from the morning that day so I was wearing a black and beige dress, a short cardigan, a beautiful red necklace ( a present from a dear friend )


and  leather colour boots and bag ( for me a very versatile colour and easy to match )


Things went on longer than my husband and I had thought and it was dark when we went out


so could enjoy the sight of the city with Christmas lights.


That day was the anniversary of our marriage


so we decided to stay out for dinner ... 


p.s.
I wasn't wearing an evening dress but I was happy  all the same!

    1. Thank you, Sue! We hadn't planned to go out for dinner and for that reason it has been an even more lovely evening ...

    1. Hi, Olga! You are right : the Christmas lights give the city a quite different atmosphere... very romantic!

  4. I especially like the boots!!! Great. And indeed they go so well with your perfect bag.
    Clever idea to brighten up that black and white dress with the red necklace. Looking good girl.
    The dress (although beautiful, for as far as I can see..... hint, hint) does not seem warm enough for winter, neither the pretty cardigan. Or perhaps your winters aren't that cold.
    Happy anniversary. Big kiss to the both of you. Of course you are happy with him. LOL

  5. You are right, Greetje! The dress is not clearly visible .... but, believe me : the other photos were really too bad to be posted! I use to wear a silk dress underneath... and that allows me to wear light weight dresses also in winter.
    It was my 28th anniversary! A lot of years, aren't they?
    p.s.
    Have you recognised the necklace?

    1. Oh yes I have recognized the necklace. Clever idea to wear it like that. See, that is something I lack. I buy these kind of things and wear it one way... the way I bought it. No fantasy to come up with other ways.
      And 28 is a lot of years yes. Ron and I are together for 26 years now (as you know I am much older than you are hahaha). Married for 19 years. Like you I don't regret a single moment.

    1. It is quite unusual to get married in December, isn't it? I remember that day there was a very thick fog in the afternoon ( my marriage was celebrated in the afternoon ) and both the fog and Christmas decorations made the city really unique!

      Cities change their look at Christmas time and little lights always add some magic ... Turin is so beautiful now ...
