Eiffel Tower Graphic Top

I rarely wear prints, but I couldn't resist this Eiffel Tower graphic top. It's my way of saying "I love you Paris!"

This top is made from a luxurious poly spandex knit that is so comfortable. There are subtly placed tiny rhinestones on the front. The black, white and gray design covers the front and the back. It has three-quarter length dolman sleeves so I will be wearing it almost year round. I found it at

I paired the top with a cashmere cardigan from J.Jill and slim fitting dark wash jeans from Fabrizio Gianni. The boots are very old by Nine West. The bag is by Zac Posen via Saks Off 5th.

Since we were going to a casual brunch at the Grove Park Inn, this was the perfect look for our full day of leisure. 

I couldn't resist asking this beautiful grandmother if I could take her picture. She wore the perfect look for a day with her family admiring the gingerbread houses and Christmas trees on display throughout the resort.

Sitting in front of one of the fireplaces in the Great Hall at the Omni Grove Park Inn is such a pleasure when the weather turns cold.

There is always something fun going on at the Omni Grove Park Inn!

The holidays are now in full swing! There are decorations everywhere you look.

Many of you have written to ask how I can eat out so often and not gain weight. Yesterday, I loaded my first plate with every salad and grilled vegetable that was offered. The next plate was a very small taste of each item I wanted to try. Baked mac and cheese is one of my favorite foods ever! I tasted all the things I love, but I didn't stuff myself with a whole plate full of decadence. I didn't even gain an ounce from our weekend splurge. (I also didn't eat anything later in the day after our wonderful afternoon brunch.)
I use mindful eating and discipline rather than being deprived of the things I enjoy as techniques to control my weight. A great coach once said, "Your attitude is always the most important part of the game of life." 

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
