Silk Blouse + Python = Date Night Or Girls Night Out

Carriage Trade is helping me get my pretty on. Blouses are everywhere and so are the price points and fabrications. To be quite honest, nothing says "woman" like a beautiful blouse, Joie did an amazing job of showcasing well cut and versatile blouses for women. Whether you are looking for brights or neutrals Joie did it - and in silk! Now silk is not for the kids nor is it a good idea to apply body lotion then touch a silk blouse (learned two hard lessons - both pieces ended in the garbage) but it is for grown ups and grown up things like work, date night or dinner with friends. So I had to pick this blouse and then I saw these jeans in dark PYTHON!

I have to be honest the light python pants scare me, too many possibilities of dimpling showing. I hate dimpling, now this python is dark and hides everything. Moreover, these pants have a higher rise. You all know why I love a higher rise (for those who don't four kids equals skin stretching) and these pants hit the sweet spot and make me look good. Carriage Trade is one of the few boutiques I know that is carrying this brand - CJ by Cookie Johnson. I love them.

Love the studding on this purse, plus it has lots of slots inside for all your cards. No need for your wallet. The purse also has enough room for a cell phone and a lipstick. Once my son is out of diapers I may need to downsize my over sized purses for something smaller.
