We always plan time for side trips to discover something new or revisit a favorite place we haven’t been to in a couple of years. Black Mountain North Carolina is a delightful village located about fifteen minutes outside of Asheville.
A pure luxury for me is not to be in a hurry. Mr. Mickey always waits so patiently for me to take as many photos as I want.
The picture above is of the McDowell County Rest Area. We stop many times during our journeys to walk around, stretch our legs and take a break. There is no less pleasant trip for me than traveling with a partner who refuses to stop along the way. Life is a journey, not a destination.
Sunday’s comfortable travel look included a waterfall top by Clara Sunwoo via ShopMyFairLady.com over a soft pair of white ankle jeans from Chico’s. The discount code for 15% off your total purchase at My Fair Lady for the month of July is “Peaches”. My most recent order from them was delivered yesterday. I can’t wait to show you those items!
The necklace above is this one from French Kande. The straw tote is one I offered on my shopping site, but it has now sold out. Tote bags are the best travel or running errands accessory ever. I have a black leather one by Coach which I have been carrying for many years. I drop my wallet, keys, phone and lip color inside and I am ready for the day with extra room for packages to ship, bills to mail, purchases, camera and receipts. A tote helps me to keep up with everything, and it looks so smart, while your hands remain free.
My travel look on Friday included a no-iron shirt and a soft pair of ankle jeans both purchases from Chico’s a couple of years or more ago. A styling tip is, never button all the buttons on shirts. It looks more modern and relaxed, but it also keeps them from wrinkling as much when you travel. The garment bag behind me is about thirty years old. I always use a hanging travel bag to protect the clothes I do not want to fold. The shoes are by Halogen via Nordstrom a couple of years ago.
