Saturday Evening

 After a long day of attending the car show and exploring the area, we dressed for another excellent dinner at the Harvest Grill located on the grounds of Shelton Vineyards.











Behind me above is the stage area on the vineyard. Live music performances are held here every year.


My Prince and chariot await!



We watched the sunset over the vineyard from our table by the flower gardens.



Grouper was the evening's special.




We enjoyed another perfect evening at the Harvest Grill!




My travel bag held all of the pieces I own from my clothing line for this trip. This evening, I wore the thin strap tank dress that first convinced me I needed to locate this line and offer it to you. The white linen biker style jacket is old. I found it on a sale rack at Stein Mart a couple of summers ago.

 When we arrived, I took everything out of the bag and hung it up. After a few hours, it didn't even need steaming. The pieces interchanged with all the other items I brought perfectly. I kept the palette simple with black and white pieces, but I have never felt more confident and comfortable on a trip. 

I packed several scarves but only used the silk shawl in yesterday's post due to the heat. Scarves take up no space in your luggage, but they can significantly change the look of your basics.


Upon my return home, I machine washed all the pieces in cold water and hung them on a felted hanger to air dry. They turned out beautifully and ready to pack for another trip!

Be My Valentine!

Staying in on this cold winter holiday weekend was our first thought. However, when our best friends returned from a month in Arizona we wanted to have dinner together and get caught up.




Mr. Mickey showed up with chocolate covered strawberries, flowers with a teddy bear and a card. Isn't this the perfect card for me?




Wearing the warmest items of clothing, I own resulted in another all black look. The necklace and handbag give the black background points of interest.




The straight leg black pants and turtleneck top are from Chico's. The jacket is by French Connection from Saks Off 5th. The necklace was a gift from Mr. Mickey. The bag is from Ross. The suede and reptile texture boots are by Vince Camuto from Nordstrom. The trench coat is from Fabrizio Gianni.



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