When your work week is packed with one meeting after the next it is always a surprise at how fast time flies and a pleasant surprise when it is finally Friday. On this particular Friday, however, the work emails/phone calls continued well past six o’clock, leaving me less than 10 minutes to change for our dinner plans out with family…decide what to wear, get dressed, freshen hair and makeup in just 10 minutes??? Yikes!!! OK, the motivation to have a martini was all I needed – we were out the door in record time. Truth be told, because we were in a hurry, these pics were not taken until after dinner, which explains the looped, ‘party’s over’ expression on my face!
Ok, ok, think quick: want comfortable, casual, not in the mood for black, it’s Friday night, so a bit sexy is in order…cream colored high waisted jeans – perfect. Yeah, when I was in my youth they called them ‘mom’ jeans – now they are anything but – even though the brand is ‘Mother’. Grabbed a vintage Army green tee-shirt by Paige – simple but cool looking, great color combination with the bright plaid scarf. Temps in the fifties at night call for a jacket, this vintage looking suede jacket (Banana Republic) was just right…and to add to the fall ‘feel’, high brown leather boots.
Almost ready – need accessories of course! When in doubt I will always wear earrings and bracelets, and skip the necklace – as quick as you can say “Grey Goose” I am ready to roll!
Not bad for 10 minutes? 😉
