Wine, Women & (Horse)Shoes

Juan Carlos is a handsome red-headed steed who raised nearly $12,000 for Gleaner's Food Bank last week. 
When I agreed to attend last week's "Wine, Women & Shoes" fundraiser for Gleaner's Food Bank, I didn't expect my favorite shoes of the day to be horseshoes!
Handmade ribbon flowers from a local weekend market added to my heart-heeled sandals from Showstory pair perfectly with the explosion of yellow roses on my dress. Both the dress and the shoes are from Amazon.
And yet, when I met Juan Carlos, holding court at the Lucas Estate on a sunny Friday afternoon, he had me eating out of his hand...er, perhaps he had me feeding him out of my hand. In any event, those soulful eyes and that ginger mane had me swooning.
Graphic black and white framed sunglasses (found at Meier) were as much necessity as accessory for Friday's outdoor luncheon. The same can be said for my hat (a Steinmart find). 
The handsome horse was on hand (or hoof, as the case may be) to help raise funds for Gleaner's Backsacks Weekend Food for Kids program, an initiative that provides healthy meals to help children on reduced or free school lunch programs get through the weekend when they otherwise might go hungry.
It's a good thing for me that Juan Carlos wasn't part of the live auction, or my ginger haired puppy Tim Riggins might have gained an equine "brother!"
"Garden Party Chic" was the dress code for the day, and I took advantage of the long overdue Spring sunshine to don a wide brimmed hat and black and white dress (THE colors of Indy in May) punctuated with bright yellow roses. Handmade ribbon blooms in the same sunny hue on my shoes finished the garden party look tip to toe. 
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
