Weekend Away

We love to spend the weekend in Asheville, at the Inn at Biltmore. They have a very nice Spa, shops, and several dining options as well as a piano bar and a library.

Mr. Mickey also owns a company which means our vacations are typically taken in three-day increments. Since the weather was predicted to be warm and pleasant this weekend we decided to take advantage of it.

My look for traveling and stopping in downtown Asheville for lunch included an impressive pair of Svelte leggings, my I.C. Collection faux suede trench coat from ShopMyFairLady, a silver tank top (coat not removed) and a large square silk scarf by Versace from Saks Off 5th.

Svelte supplied these leggings. The opinions are my own.

The wine colored bag by Ivanka Trump and the old Nine West booties are also from Saks Off 5th. Despite having a high heel, these boots are very comfortable. They are perfect to wear with leggings.

We had to stop for Canadain Geese crossing the road on the way to the Inn.

The view from our room on the fifth floor. I never tire of seeing mountains!

I wore this brand of leggings from for the first time this weekend. I love the way they fit and flatter my figure! They are well worth the investment. I will be taking these with me to California later this week. They will be perfect for the photo shoot for Covered Perfectly!

Svelte supplied these leggings. The opinions are my own.

These leggings have a built-in tummy control panel! Svelte products are made of highly stretchy knit fabric which holds you comfortably but firmly. I put leggings on the same way I do pantyhose to keep the seams strong and straight. To preserve the shape, color and size it’s important that they are machine washed cold or hand washed and hung to dry. Do not put them in the dryer. These tips apply to all fine knits.

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