Friends recently bought one of those luxurious Weekender Mercedes Campers. They have nicknamed it, "The Beast". Three couples got together on Friday night to enjoy a long drive in the camper so that we could have dinner in Banner Elk at the Chef's Table.
For this evening's adventure, I wore the thin strap tank dress from my collection with a waterfall cardigan from Body Language by Connie. The bag is old from Saks Off 5th. The shoes are old by Vince Camuto. The necklace is by French Kande.
The fabric of these dresses is so soft and lightweight. It is also very stretchy. I love the basic design of this dress which allows me to wear it with so many other items in my wardrobe.
There was some question as to whether I would be able to climb into the "Beast" while wearing heels and a dress but I showed them it could be done.
Almost every vista in the Banner Elk and Grandfather Mountain communities includes the Sugar Top condos.
We visited a fun gallery along our stroll to the restaurant located in the village of Banner Elk.
The Chef's Table is a third generation run farm to table restaurant located upstairs in the village square.
Everyone's food was excellent!

Mr. Mickey says I am the only woman he knows that can make a cardigan and pearls look sexy. Thanks, Mr. M!
Styling notes: I chose to wear a short necklace that just filled in the bodice instead of a long necklace because I needed something to lift the eye with all the other long proportions. I wore nude shoes since black would have created a visual break on my legs and made them look shorter. Please also note that I had my tank dress altered to shorten the straps because I wanted a higher neckline.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
