We’ve learned to appreciate even the smallest outing and always strive to make it special. On Saturday, we took a long meandering drive through the mountains around Banner Elk, NC. Before we left town, we stopped on the Mountain Home VA campus to snap a few photos.
This year, I’ve been experimenting with different styles of jeans. I’ve discovered that a slim-fitting top tucked in, with jackets or sweaters that stop mid-bottom, provides the most flattering silhouette with flare leg pants. Longer, fuller shapes on top always make me appear to be shorter and wider.
I’ll be sharing more of what I’ve learned about jean cuts and the best styles for different body shapes on Thursday.
The high waist flare jeans are here. V-neck Tee here. Similar jacket here. Boots here. Similar belt here. Similar bag here.
We returned to Bodegas Wine Bar in Banner Elk for lunch. This time I ordered a portobello & poblano burger and thick-cut yuca fries served with creamy garlic-cilantro sauce.
Mr. Mickey ordered the crab & corn chowder, knowing that he would be eating half of my order as usual.
We also shared chocolate gelato after our delightful meal on the back deck of the restaurant.
The mountain views around Banner Elk are breathtaking!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a giveaway, so my friend and talented jewelry designer, Suzanne McKinney, is allowing me to offer one of her fabulous big link lariats. That’s the style I’m showing below.
My new favorite lip color is Plum (true berry) here. The denim shirt is a couple of years old, but the current offering is here.
