Jazz at Wellington's

Today we had the nicest weather of the summer!


Earlier in the day we attended a Bristol Race Day brunch at the lake home of our dear friends. It was great fun to see a few of my sweet girlfriends again and just be silly. Some of us are trying not to fall off the steps while Mr. Mickey is snapping pictures before we are ready.


The view from my back deck was especially beautiful on this sunny day!


Before dinner, Mr. Mickey took me to Chico's since we had a few minutes to spare. Isn't he the best?!


Happy going in the door...


Even happier coming out the door!

With the sale they were having and my birthday Passport discount added on it was like getting a tank top for free! Tank tops, or any other basic that you wear as often as I do mine, need to be updated at least once a year. The tanks at Chico's are top quality and I love it that the necklines are not too low. I buy a size too large because I don't like them to cling to my middle so much.



Wellington's is a fine dining restaurant which is part of the Carnegie Hotel and Spa in Johnson City, TN.

We visit this restaurant often, but on this evening we had the best meal in years! The fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese and orange marmalade appetizer was one of the best things I have ever eaten. They also had our all time favorite wild mushroom soup. We are two happy people!



There was a splendid live Jazz performance in the lounge on this evening but we could hear the performance from our table as well. 

Local readers may recognize a special ETSU professor back there in the center. We enjoyed sitting in the lounge listening to them after dinner. Mr. Mickey snapped this photo as I walked away from the tip jar. He is my own personal Paparazzi!  



Both my outfits for this day are from Chico's. I have been asked to be a style ambassador for them, however that would require additional trips to Asheville for shows or seminars. At this time my plate is much too full to add anything else so I will consider it again in the future. For now I am just a very happy loyal Chico's shopper! 

I hope that your day was also filled with sunshine and cooling breezes.

Thank you for reading my blog!

Oh how I've missed your daily outfit posts. My husband accompanied me to Chico's outlet in Mebane yesterday and with their sale going on, I scored big! I can't believe you passed up being their style embassador -- what an honor to be asked! Will be watching for your Fall outfits...

I've just discovered your blog, and you wear exactly the kind of clothes I look for: comfortable, but chic and flattering. Would you mind if I posted some of your outfits (including you) on my Pinterest board? I'm always looking for inspiration, and it's nice to have all the great ideas on one page. Looking forward to reading, and seeing, more great ideas.

I love the versatility of black with black and you certainly proved it works with this lovely blue jacket. Great color on you as well. I don't think I would leave your deck. The view is beautiful!
