Bohemian

Do you play around with different styles?




We recently took Mr. Mickey's daughter out for her 50th birthday celebration dinner.




In honor of her very youthful urban fashion vibe, we decided to wear jeans and be more casual.




This burnout velvet cardigan has a distinct Bohemian attitude. I found it on sale at Dillard's recently. The bold cuff and tank top are from Chico's. The jeans are by Jag Jeans via the Fig Leaf in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. The mesh and suede trim shoes are old by Sam Edelman. The reptile embossed box bag is from S.M. Bradford Co. on Hilton Head Island.

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

Reptile and Fringe

It feels like spring here today!




 With temperatures in the low seventies and lots of sunshine, that means it's time for me to wear open toe shoes.




The black fringe hem jacket is part of the Traveler's Collection from Chico's. The tank and khaki pants are also from Chico's.




The woven leather clutch and Ivanka Trump shoes are from Saks Off 5th. The bracelets are a couple of years old.




The giveaway is now over.

White Jacket

Until just last year, I never owned a white jacket. Now I have several and I enjoy wearing them very much with jeans.




Mr. Mickey had an appointment in Burnsville, NC yesterday so I went along for the ride to give him some company.




I wore black jeans from Chico's and a white tank from Kohl's with a white jacket from Express last year. The necklace is old from Chico's. The bag is by Michael Kors from T.J.Maxx. The shoes are by Vince Camuto from Nordstrom last year.

Another Adventure

Have you ever had to totally change your plans after you arrived at your destination?


We planned to go shopping in Abingdon, Virginia for part of the day and then make early dinner reservations at a great restaurant we recently visited. Since this is not a busy time of year for them, I thought we would just call earlier in the day for the first seating. We found that restaurant and many others in town were either closed for the whole month or operating with a very limited lounge menu.



This is the always inviting porch at the Martha Washington Inn where the desk manager told us about a great new café around the corner.



So off we go on a new adventure.



Earlier we stopped briefly at their small T.J.Maxx. I have been looking for a luggage or camel color bag to replace my Liz Claiborne bag. After being carried for several years, it was time to retire it because the zipper finally broke. I was thrilled when I found this Michael Kors one that I have been coveting for more than a year! None of the other stores I have visited still had one in stock so I was thrilled to find this one at a much lower price than the ones I had been looking at on line.



Instead of complaining about my lack of planning the wonderful Mr. Mickey smiled and suggested we try the new place. It turned out to be great! We will visit 128 Pecan again.




The Virginia Creeper Trail starts a couple of blocks from downtown Abingdon.





An old railroad track was converted to a bike path which extends to the top of Whitetop Mountain. We have actually ridden our bikes from the top of the mountain into Damascus but not all the way back to Abingdon. Perhaps on another day we will try that.





No Saturday adventure is ever complete until we have shared an afternoon desert. On this day we stopped at Anthony's Desserts for a coconut cream pie tart. Mickey found the old book on French Country style in one of the shops we visited. He knows how French my heart is.



Off in the distance we saw a large house on the hill so of course I suggested we get a closer look. The road that passed by the house continued upon the ridge so we drove to the end of it where we saw this awe inspiring panoramic view of mountains and rolling pastures on three sides.

My outfit today includes a long sleeve white tee, a blue Ponte jacket and black So Slimming jeans all from Chico's. The short boots are Madden Girl from Belk a couple of years ago.

Thank you for reading my blog and for joining me on this journey through midlife and beyond.
