What I Wore to the Pismo Beach Auction

 As I mentioned last week 
we went to Pismo Beach for my daughter's auction  for her department.
Ellis is majoring in event planning
and this was their annual fundraiser.
It was a beautiful event held inside a tent at the beach.

I packed a core wardrobe of creamy neutrals for our trip
 spent the whole weekend
in only two shoes
my white Birkenstocks seen Here
my new Coach Glitter kitten heels.

The Coach shoe was the perfect choice for the auction.
They have the perfect amount of
glam and function
since the kitten  heel makes them a pleasureto walk in!

 My favorite styling is  working with 
textured monochromes
creamy colors are  one of my favorites
as they always pair beautifully with my love of pearls.

These textured neutrals  were all perfect players in my creamy core wardrobe
 made for a lovely ensemble for the auction.

I paired  a textured off the shoulder sweater with my 
cream skirts
 yes that is plural skirts
as I layer my 
Rag and Bone silk parachute skirt
over my  knife pleated Theory skirt.
The movement of the two together
makes them the  most delicious to wear and walk in
and one becomes a slip for the other.

I finished off the is wonderful ensemble with
an antique crystal evening bag.
The tag you see in the photo
is actually the back side of hand done
calligraphy name tags for the event.
They were presented with pins
so the wearer could decide to 
either pin or tie!
I'm not usually a fan of name tags
but these were a pleasure to wear for the event!

 I was so very proud of my daughter
 the professional level of her event.
It's a wonderful thing to see your children
turning into successful and talented adults.
It's a proud Mama heart I have here.

You can see more of Ellis's  styling of the event Here.

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  5. Oh Wow! I'm not finding the words to adequately express my usual, LOL. You do look ever so lovely Tamera. Elegant, stylish, beautiful, poised.
