What I Wore To The Parties!

A Special Night

Hello everyone! I'm sharing what I wore recently to two separate parties Mr.thisandthat and I attended. My hubby was honored last Thursday evening for teaching over 25 years. We attended a special dinner in his honor and in honor of other teachers who have taught for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30+ years. It was a special evening and a lovely dinner.
The dinner was held at an event venue on top of a mountain. The views of the city below were great. Sorry for the "squinty eyes" but the sun was in my eyes. I'm wearing the same lavender top and scarf you recently saw here. The black slacks are by Laura Scott. Similar here. The white sweater is by Red. Similar here.

My handsome hubby getting his award. I'm proud of him...he's a wonderful teacher and very dedicated to his job!!

I caught the sun setting before we left. Very pretty indeed!!

Prom Night

And then, Saturday night, Mr.thisandthat and I went to help chaperone the prom at the high school where he teaches. I chose to wear a blue dress by Avon with the white scarf you saw here. You can see that I enjoy using my scarves for belts as well as neck scarves. That way, I get double duty from them. I got to carry my vintage purse! Love that purse! And, yes, I wore "sensible" shoes instead of high heels which would have looked better. But, I chose stylish comfort....and I'm glad I did!

It was fun to see the lovely outfits all the prom kids wore. Although, I'm still vibrating from the LOUD music. LOL!! The young ladies wore an assortment of lengths and styles from dressy minis to full length ball gowns. Of course, the guys were in tuxedos. It got really cold and windy here Saturday evening and I felt sorry for the girls in their sleeveless dresses. Hopefully, the excitement of the evening kept them warm. Being there certainly took me back to my high school days. 

So, now that I'm all partied out, it's time to get back into routine with the week ahead. Hope your week brings only good things. 

Have you been to any parties, get togethers or special events lately? Do you get nostalgic thinking back to your high school prom? Leave me a comment....I enjoy hearing from you!

Until Next Time,
