New Shoes in Wine Country

I fell in love with these shoes the moment I saw them!

After trying on several outfit options from my closet I knew I didn't have the right pieces to wear with them on a July evening. Below is the outfit I almost settled on but I knew it could be better.
Off to Chico's we go!

The shoes are edgy and modern so the red jacket is too conservative and subdued to wear with them.

When I saw this sweater and necklace I knew they were the right pieces. 
The gold cuff was just the icing on the cake.

When we arrive at our favorite restaurant there is always a valet attendant to open our doors. 
The service at Artisanal is superb! 

We stopped at the Banner Elk Winery on our way home from dinner last night. Many people do not know that there are some really good wines coming from North Carolina.

This fire pit and pond beyond are in front of the tasting house and gift shop.

This is The Villa, a luxury Bed and Breakfast on a hill overlooking the winery.

The bag is from Stein Mart. The shoes are from Nordstrom. All other items are from Chico's.

Thank you for reading!

Susan, been reading your blog for awhile. We used to live in Raleigh and Nashville so seeing all the lovely places you visit brings back so many wonderful memories of those beautiful states. We are now in Texas, which has its own beauty especially the "hill country" area. We try to go there as often as we can. Thank you so much for sharing your talents and heart with everyone. You have inspired me to rethink many wardrobe choices and purchases.
