Who wouldn’t want to go to our friend Lori’s house for Halloween, when you’re greeted by this gorgeous smile.
A lace-up sleeve detail looks extra sweet as you handle Candy Duty at the front door.
Lori keeps her look focused, simple, so that special details are not drowned out or diluted. Gold grommets and lacing at the cuff and a leopard boot get to be the stars. An antiqued gold, filigree medallion necklace repeats (and enhances) the gold circles of the grommets.
Lori confided these leopard booties are the first thing she’s ever bought in the leopard-print pattern. What a great way to dip your toes into one of Fall 2017’s hottest trends. Also, Lori swears by these Old Navy Rockstar Jeans — soft, stretchy, comfortable, flattering, and reasonable. (I have a pair, too — love ’em!)
The Real-Real Behind the Scenes
Many times the best picture is the first one, before the camera is really focused. Click anyway — you may just capture perfectly your friend’s radiating beauty and happiness.
A Little Background Music
Lori’s the biggest George Strait fan I know! So, here’s The Man himself, and Lori leaving us with her smile.
Lori’s sweater is Stella Rae’s, whose merch is moving like hot cakes!
