Freedom; a luxury we Americans have been gifted by the blood, sweat and tears of American heroes who have served this great nation throughout history.

My husband and I recently had the honor to attend the BMW Charity Pro-Am Celebrity Golf Tournament reception, a fund raiser for Upstate Warrior Solution. This non-profit organization provides veterans with assistance on everything from finding employment to navigating the transition out of the military and everything in between.

We are forever indebted to those who have given their lives that we might be free. President Ronald Reagan

Upstate Warrior Solution holds a very special place in our hearts, not only for the outstanding support they provide to veterans, but because our son is the Greenville Outreach Coordinator.

So what was I to wear to this special, country club event? Most country clubs have a dress code, although the invitation outlined this as a more casual event.

Still, jeans are a definite no-no at most country clubs. I decided on a summer casual cocktail dress in a salmony-orange tone (hot this season) for the occasion.

Miss South Carolina

This sweet beauty, Miss South Carolina’s Suzi Roberts, was there to lend her support to our veterans and the event. Suzi made it to the final 10 in the Miss America Pageant, earning over $30,000 in scholarships.

Not only does Suzi love her country and support the military, we chose the same colored dress for the evening!

While Miss South Carolina went with a nude heel, I paired my orangy dress with a brown and white animal print sandal. Isn’t that one of the beautiful things about fashion? Accessorizing provides us with infinite opportunities to change a look.

After such an uplifting evening honoring our veterans and country, it seemed only fitting that I stop and take a moment to smell the roses as I absorb the love and support that was all around us.

Special thanks to BMW for their annual charitable golf tournament and all the other caring companies who contributed to this event.

Until next time, darlings, break all the fashion rules!
