The Weekend Away Part 2

The rain was falling for most of the day on Saturday, but we didn't let that stand in the way of our fun.

Shopping is a sweet luxury for me. Especially on a rainy day, I love to look around in unique stores and antique shops. Fiddlehead Designs is a really fabulous florist in Cashiers. You can buy orchids, cut flowers or live plants for your home and gardens. There were also tables, urns, and pedestals to add the perfect touch to your summer home.

Later in the day it was time to have lunch in Madison's and enjoy our view of the Wine Garden at the Old Edward's Inn.

The Wine Garden is a lovely place to spend a warm summer afternoon enjoying lunch and its lush surroundings, market umbrellas, and patio-side waterfall.

The jeans I am wearing are by French Dressing Jeans. I must tell you they are the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn. These are the LOVE Premium Denim - Olivia Slim Leg in black. I wanted the ankle style because most of the time I wear statement shoes that balance my look. On this rainy day, I wore them with a white tank and a short denim jacket from Chico's. 

The scarf is the Compassion Scarf from J.Jill. Did you know that J.Jill has donated more than six million dollars to over sixty organizations to help women in need across the country?

The cuff is from my own company.

We stayed in one of the cottages at the Innisfree Inn Bed & Breakfast this weekend. The Inn overlooks Lake Glenville near Cashiers, North Carolina where it is the only accommodation awarded the 4-Diamond designation. It has been awarded this coveted honor for exceptional excellence for 22 consecutive years. The Innkeepers are retiring soon so the exquisite property is now for sale.

On Sunday, I wore a soft gray sweater from Chico's and the same denim jacket. Those French Dressing Jeans were so comfortable for the drive home! They keep their shape in both the knees and the behind. I have owned many pairs of black jeans and I am usually disappointed when they change shape and fade as soon as they are washed. These stayed true black when washed! French Dressing Jeans are so worth the investment because they keep looking great, not just the first day and the first few hours of wearing. I will be getting the blue ones also!

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

It was fun following you along on parts of your weekend adventure! And you look great!

I'll have to check out French Dressing Jeans. It's so hard to find black jeans that keep the color!
