Casual Dinner Outfit

I went over to a friend's place to have a casual dinner - pizza, salads, snacks, and yummy banana pudding for dessert (thanks Michelle!). I tend to overdress for these kinds of things, so tonight, I tried really hard to keep my look casual while still looking chic.

I wore one of my favorite coats to the party - a tweed-y coat from Banana Republic. It was chilly outside, so I also wore my BR scarf.

For my outfit, I tried to do a J Crew-ish look - jeans with a simple sweater and a long necklace to dress everything up. I scored this Michael Michael Kors sweater recently at Steinmart. It was on the clearance rack for a mere $19-ish...can you believe it?

Btw, Michelle recently started a blog. Check her out at Pinque-en the City

I love that jacket and the top.. entire outfit is hot. I may have added a silk scarf for colour.
