Last night Rob and I had so much fun hosting a Craft Beer & Chocolate pairing. The event was for Leadership Lancaster’s Leader’s Circle members and was presented by Craft Tastings. I am a Board member of Leadership Lancaster and Rob and I co-chair the Leader’s Circle group…it is a great organization connecting leaders in our community. This tasting was put together by our friend Greg Orth who walked us through the various beer and chocolate pairings. It is so amazing how much the flavors change when combined!

So, this was a day I needed an outfit to get me through work and right into this event. A little black dress was exactly what I needed and this one is perfect. It is comfortable and stylish and can easily switch gears to get you from one thing into another. I tossed on a distressed jean jacket and low heeled boots for my day at the office. Then when I got home, I lost the jacket, switched up my boots and was ready to greet our guests for a fun night! Check out the racerback styling of the back. It’s such a versatile look and I know this dress will carry me well into Fall by simply adding a long sleeve t-shirt or sweater.

I kept my jewelry pretty simple so I wouldn’t need to change it…a favorite pair of earrings and a couple of statement rings were all I needed!

If you’re looking for something different to do as a fundraiser or just a night together with friends, give the Craft Beer & Chocolate Pairing a try–you will not be disappointed. Even your non-beer drinkers will enjoy it and find something they like (I did!). And please check out Leadership Lancaster. Have a fantastic weekend…enjoy!
