Today was day 2 of the preppy challenge. I wore a Brooks Brothers gray wool jumper, a pink OCBD, pearls (of course) and black Ferragamo loafers.
Tickled Pink & Green posted about Laura Ashley today. It got me to thinking about a LA black watch plaid jumper that is hanging in my closet. I may wash it and wear it one day next week with a yellow turtleneck. What color is appropriate to wear with black watch plaid, navy or black? I've seen and wore both.
I have a predicament that I need advice on. I am a member of a local ladies club. We have a national conference in a few weeks in a city that is about 6 hours away. I am taking my mother along as my guest. A member of our club asked me if I had a roommate. I told her I was sorry but my mother was going with me. She then asked if she could room with us and use a roll away bed. It sort of blind sided me. I didn't know what to say. I told her that I would have to check with my mother, and she said, "Okay, let me know what she says." This woman is very nice, but she can get on my nerves sometimes. She travels like she's going on Cleopatra's Barge. Plus, I'm the national president this year, so I have a lot of stuff also. I really don't know what to say. If I told her that my mother didn't think it was a good idea, it would make my mother look like the bad person. I can't use the excuse that my mother doesn't know her, because she has met my mother. I really don't know what to do. I don't want to hurt her feelings. Any advice?
I hope everyone has a good Friday.
