Lady in Black

 Top, pants, heels: Ross (c/o), Clutch: gifted (unknown brand) 

I recently collaborated with Ross Dress for Less for their #RossFallFaves campaign and each week I'll bring a new outfit to showcase. This week, it's all about entertaining

Not long ago, I hosted my first gig at my home. Since then, I have had several more get-togethers and I have become increasingly comfortable in the "entertaining at home" chapter of my life. 


Whether I'm hosting or I'm going to someone's home for a party I always keep a specific tip in mind. Keep things basic. It's easy to become obsessed with details but the older I get, the more I believe in the "less is more" adage. I kept my look simple but sophisticated. An all-black outfit is effortless to wear and you can create instant glam with accessories. I wore this look to a friend's "end of summer" party and easily mingled with guests and ate to my heart's content. These pretty dahlias also made the best accessory when I walked in.

If you feel so inclined, you can vote for my look. or any other blogger look, on their Facebook page. I'd be ever so grateful for your support! Woo!


Thanks to Ross for including me in this campaign. I received a gift card for this post but all comments and opinions are my own.
