fancy pants - dinner guests

I love cooking, so when we have people over for dinner it's a lovely excuse to take some time to think about the menu and cook some wonderful food.

Last night, we had some friends for dinner.  I was so focused on cooking and preparing that I didn't really think of what to wear until just before they arrived.

I decided quickly on my new fab little jersey pencil skirt from asos and teamed with an oldie but a goodie top from Portmans that I picked up five or so years ago.  This top is lovely and feminine, accentuating curves and the bold print I've always adored.

teamed with my cute little patent wedge shoes - I was in the hostess spirit!  I shoved the camera in my hubby's hand and said "quick, take some snaps for fancy pants!!"  Needless to say I got a weird look in return, but he obliged and snapped away...

Dinner went off with a bang and we chatted the night away!  Tomorrow I'll post my dinner menu...

Did you get all fancy this week?  If so, link up with this fabulous gal....

WEARING; Skirt - asos, Top - Portmans, Shoes - Miss Shop, Earrings - gift from Italy.
