Everybody! This is what I chose to wear for dinner out, tonight. I've been trying to add "Gentlewoman" style to my wardrobe and I felt like I may have achieved it with this outfit. I wore a black blazer as a topper and carried a black leather pouch.

It was not so long ago that I did not have even one pair of pants suitable to wear for an evening out, and I now have choice of several. The novelty has not worn off: It will probably be a pretty long time before I take sartorial choices for granted.

It's another outing for my new belt (needs a keeper badly!) and I wore the gold-tone jewelry I just bought for Fall (to match the buckle of the belt, because I am matchy-matchy like that).

I mixed blue and black freely: blue pants, black shoes, belt, and jacket.

I made a collage photo so you can see what I have to deal with regarding the pets! My husband calls them my entourage because they follow me everywhere.

I'm excited about this outfit, but comments, critiques, and suggestions are welcome.
