Drive Your British Car


We always enjoy attending the Drive Your British Car Show. It is hosted by Gourmet & Company in Johnson City, TN each May.



This is always a relaxed casual event. We visit with lots of old friends while we admire the beautifully restored cars. My look for this year included white capri pants from Chico's with a royal blue Portofino shirt from Express. The wedge sandals are from Dillard's last year.




Above with Mr. Mickey and below with Ben Bailey. They have been friends since childhood.













This is always a fun evening!

Fuchsia and Khaki

On the last day of our Martha Washington Inn visit, we had a leisurely late breakfast before taking a long drive through the country on our way home.



Two weddings were held at the Inn this weekend so there were abundant flowers everywhere.






For the drive home, I wore a fuchsia washable linen boxy shirt with a tie front and a longer back from Chico's. 
Shoes by Sam Edelman. 




The pull on smooth fit khaki pants are by Fabrizio Gianni. These super comfortable pants are made in the USA. Fabrizio Gianni offers Shop & Dash! That means you can order four or more items, try them on at home, pay only for what you keep. Free shipping both ways!




I hope you have enjoyed the photos from our weekend getaway and that we gave you some ideas for what to wear during your own fun times. More adventures coming soon!

Portugal Wine Tasting

On a recent Friday evening, we got together with our Wine Club friends to enjoy tasting some great wines from Portugal.







I wore white jeans and a white tank with a lace front Travelers jacket and a necklace all from Chico's. The black pumps are by Steve Madden.







We always look forward to seeing Rick and Sandy Jelovsek again because we learn so much from them, but we also get to meet new friends each time we get together.




Larry and Debbie England graciously hosted this tasting event at their beautiful home.




Rick is discussing what regions of Portugal the featured wines are from.

I have worn this topper with all black in the past here, but I like the contrast with the white much better. Try combining some of your wardrobe pieces in a different way. Sometimes you can find a new favorite outfit you never considered before.

Casual

Sometimes there's nothing better than a drive through the countryside on a warm spring day. We did just that, earlier in the day on Saturday.



We briefly stopped in Jonesbourgh, the oldest town in Tennessee.
















I am wearing white Kut from the Kloth jeans and wedge sandals from Dillard's last year and a white tank top from Chico's. The blue cotton and flax shirt is another one from my friend's boutique in Kingsport, The Charlemont

When the weather is warm, I often wear a shirt as if it were a jacket.

Black and Blue

Black jeans are like a winter uniform for me.



We were surprised at how warm it was on Sunday. The scarf was removed within a few minutes.





I found this quilted faux leather jacket by Peter Nygard on sale last week when we visited Dillard's in Asheville. The sleeves and back are a very soft knit material.





The cobalt blue shirt is from Express. It is one of their Portofino shirts. The gray quilted bag is also from Express. The black jeans are from Chico's.




It was great to take a walk through Johnson City’s Memorial Park campus on this sunny warm winter day.




The suede and reptile print black boots are by Vince Camuto from Nordstrom.



The Doughboy statue honors all those from Washington County who gave their lives in World War I and II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

Cashmere

Last fall, I purchased my very first cashmere sweater from Ann Taylor




I must have had a bad experience with itchy sweaters in my earlier days because I have never felt the need to own a cashmere sweater.




Now that I have worn this elegant fabric, 
I must have more! It is warm but not bulky and oh so soft. It isn't itchy at all. I will be able to wear this one for three seasons so it is well worth the investment.




The black jeggings are old from Chico's. Both the ombre scarf and the suede and reptile texture boots are by Vince Camuto.

Birthday Weekend on Sunday

On Sunday we wrapped up our stay at the Martha Washington Inn and stopped for some photos on our way out of Abingdon.


The residences, churches and storefronts along Main Street are fascinating to me.



I will always study the jewelry more closely.




For the trip home I wore off white jeans with a chambray shirt and a white tank top. All items are from Chico's. The Jessica Simpson shoes are from T.J. Maxx earlier this year.







Many of the buildings in Abingdon date back to the 1770's.








This serpentine brick wall was built using hand made bricks many years ago to give privacy to the backyard of the home above.




The next leg of our journey included stopping at White's Mill which long served the neighboring community. Since the late 18th century, the mill provided meal and flour for the farm and kitchen, as well as a gathering place for sharing news and views.







The Mercantile, formerly the Cumbow Store, provided those store-bought essentials and extras that any home needs.










The contents were left as they were many years ago when the mill was still used.


















The port o john is appropriately hidden in an outhouse.



This abandoned store along the way captured my attention from afar.




Before our wonderful brunch at The Harvest Table in Meadowview we explored Emory which is the home to Emory and Henry College. The campus is so beautiful!

I hope you have enjoyed the final day of our weekend celebration of my birthday.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this journey through midlife and beyond.
