We spent the past weekend exploring downtown Waynesville, North Carolina and then took a long drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway along a section we had not yet explored.
This is the front of the Chef’s Table where we had a wonderful dinner on the previous evening.
The Patio is on the same street. Perhaps we can have lunch there on our next visit. I loved their courtyard and patio with trailing vines and brick walls.
This store had a unique artistic front door.
The town has many art installations to admire as well as galleries where the fine work of artisans was offered for sale.
After taking in a lot of the downtown scene we drove for a few hours on the Blue Ridge Parkway to make our way into the Biltmore Village where we shopped and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Bistro on the Biltmore Estate.
I wore the white Fabrizio Gianni pants, a white tank top from Stein Mart by Peck & Peck, and the long black duster cardigan from White House|Black Market during the afternoon. The suede heels are by Jessica Simpson via Dillard’s.
The scarf is my favorite because it complements every jacket I own. My friend, Celeste bought these scarves for her store while she was on a buying trip to Paris. (This woman is extremely talented on so many levels!) The scarf is silk, and it was made in Italy. I now have similar scarves on my site here.
Since I was in my twenties, I have always loved to wear a scarf. In these pictures, I showed you some of the simple easy ways I wear them. If the tie becomes too fussy or difficult, I give up. I like the classic, effortless looks as if to say, “I have always worn this, and I just threw it on today.” You may have noticed that I don’t really care what is in style. I wear what I feel comfortable in and what suits my shape. When I travel, I take a micro version of my wardrobe. A black top, a white top, maybe a gray or blue top, a pair of jeans, a pair of white pants, a pair of black pants and a couple of jackets. Scarves take up no room in your luggage but can do so much to pull your look together as well as keep you warm.
Thank you for joining us for this journey through mid-life and beyond. The second fifty years are the best!
