I had a really nice time last night. I went to a party at McCabe, Duval + Associates — they’re on the top floor of a building in the Old Port with amazing views of the waterfront. The theme was a summer picnic, French bistro style. I decided to dress in my version of casual French. I put on black capri pants and a long sleeved fitted dark purple t-shirt and slipped into a pair of black flats. My twenty something daughter is living with us for the time being and I’ve gotten into the habit of running outfits by her before leaving the house. Each time I realize that I am risking humiliation, but she has given me invaluable advice and claims to have saved me many times from public humiliation on a much grander scale.
