Spring Neutrals

Posted on: April 14, 2013

I love this combo of grey and white for Spring Neutrals!  This is what I wore for date night with my husband and another couple:  Linking Up with Visible Monday and Watch What I am Wearing     and MyStyleMonday , so go check out  the other wonderful women on the web!

I took these photos around 6:00 pm and had some shadows I am not use to dealing with.. My seersucker jacket looks so wild in this photo.  My husband and I enjoyed a dinner out with friends at Macaroni Grill.   It was my first time there and I really enjoyed the entire experience.  The staff was relaxed and playful, the food was excellent and of course the company of our friends made it the best!  We ended our meal with the host coming to serenade our friend for her birthday.  After he sang in Italian,  our friend asked if he could sing something else, perhaps Voltaire.  He smiled and said he would love to sing us one of his all time favorites and before we knew it we were listening to “When You are Evil”   He did it with all the flair of a theater student and really made our night!

After dinner my friend and I headed to the restroom and as I exited the stall I noticed the door said MEN and asked “Why does our door say MEN?” .  When the girl in the stall between my friend and I chimed in with a deeper masculine voice that at first startled me making me think we really were in the Men’s room.. She said” that’s what I asked the last time I was here!”  Being my sassy self and having indulged in a glass of Chardonnay, I just had to know if the Men’s room said “Women’s” and my friend,  although  uncomfortable accompanied me and it does!   Someone has a great sense of humor!IMG_3326Notice my husband’s shadow?  I was happy to wear my sequined grey t-shirt that I had picked up at BJ’s while grocery shopping .   My husband once again kept complimenting the Franco Sarto silver heels.  I think he is happy to see me out of boots!  I really like this outfit because of the sparkle and texture!

Glad we had a fun night out because nothing like waiting until the last minute… We had a 10am meeting with our tax guy on Sunday..

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you were not like me, waiting until the last minute to file your taxes!I may have messed up my weight loss for the week, with my night out, will have to see what Weigh In Day Brings!

Gratitude:  I am grateful for a wonderful weekend with friends and family.  I am grateful the taxes came out fine and for our tax guy who comes to our house and makes it so easy! I am grateful for the laughter in my home and the sense of humor of all my sons!  I am grateful that my oldest son is doing so well and after struggling to find the right major is on his way!

What a great date outfit – just the right amounts of sparkle and jazz : > Thanks for sharing your look with Visible Monday.

I love your spring neutral combo! A little sparkle sure does add interest to the outfit! That’s very sweet of your hubby to compliment your sandals! 🙂

thanks and my hubby notices everything… he patiently watched me gain weight and all the hardships that brought that on and is just so happy that his wife is returning to her healthy, spunky self…

Great outfit for spring. I love these mild neural colors. There are so many ways to accessorize against this kind of color palette.

yes, good point about the possibilities to take it up a notch with colorful accessories. I find myself doing that a lot and am proud to have resisted in this instance.

I love, love grey and white together and your jacket is amazing! Honestly, Tracey, if you are overweight you hide it well because I just don’t see it.
We don’t have a BJ’s here but I’m going to look for the Seeds of change brand because I like to have quick, healthy sides I can put together at a moment’s notice!

Well I do so love some spring neutrals, always!! you look fabulous in yours!! But my favorite part of your post… you gratitude list… it brought tears! What a wonderful way to end a post… color me very inspired!!!

The white and gray looks great…especially with the added sparkle.

This is a fabulous look! Whites and metallics always look great paired together. So glad you had a fun night out. How cool to have the guy sing to you in Italian! Heather

I am a huge seersucker fan! Cannot wait until next month to bring my blazer out again!

I too love seersucker! Such a classic and screams Spring & Summer! thanks for commenting..

I agree! Gray with white looks really springy – never would’ve thought. 🙂

thank you! I hope you give it a try!

Looking great! I sure wish it was that nice and sunny here! Thanks for linking up to My Style Monday.

Yup, that’s it … sparkle and texture take neutrals way beyond mere color! Have a great week, kiddo.
