Weekend Wear … and the Side Door


Our Friday night date night 
found us at the 
Side Door 
in Corona Del Mar.

Feeling inspired for fall
and 
over my summer wardrobe to be sure
I pulled out my black maxi and leather jacket.


Pairing them with my favorite fashion piece right now
an ankle boot!
I find this fresh boot can add an instant update to any ensemble
especially when paired with my Iris inspired
Tom Ford spectacles
and
 my hand woven clutch
from Oaxaca Mexico.


To finish of my ensemble perfectly
I wore my 
four strand wrapped pearl necklace
from Tamera Beardsley Design.


Oh the power of some well chosen accessories not only to complete a look
but to upgrade inexpensive wardrobe pieces!

Both my dress and jacket are from Target!
But paired with high end accessories
the whole ensemble looks upscale!



For our date night 
Jeff and I had Ellis and Elliot 
meet us at the Side Door
just off of the  Five Crowns restaurant.


The first time Jeff and I went into the Side Door
we knew we wanted to bring 
Ellis and Elliot back
because it reminded us so of 
when the four of us met up in London
and
 they played tour guides for us
before we all flew back to Torino
where 
Ellis and her boyfriend were studying abroad.


Drinks were ordered all around in Friday night celebration
of our double date here in SoCal!


My favorite part …
definitely
the cheese and charcuterie station!


Its always a favorite of mine to go out and try new cheeses and pairings!


And it's simply perfect when the company is so great!


As always my friends


I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  6. What a great post. I took the ensemble to be from elsewhere until you disclosed. Absolutely right.. accessories make the look work, and look incredible. Your Chanel inspired necklace is delightful, and a feminine pairing with the biker jacket. It is so nice to be able to share special places with the ones you love! You always know how to make Friday evenings special!

    1. Annie, my dress has no slits. I also wore a thin knit skirt underneath, to help it move better … with out the cling factor. I hope you enjoy your new dress!

  13. The Queen of accessories speaks again! And oh so lovely and elegant was the speech. I'm a true fan of any necklace you put together but I'm especially drawn to the tapestry clutch you chose for the evening. And, as we both know the very best part of the entire evening was the company.
