The sky was a clear vivid blue on Saturday. The trees are now fully leaved in a sea of a million colors of green, so we took a drive to enjoy the high country.
I wore the new lightweight cardigan or jacket I just got from Covered Perfectly here. It has longer tips in the front, and the fabric is surprisingly light and airy. I found it to be the perfect topper for a drive in the mountains. You can get a 20% discount on up to two items. Use the discount code FNF20 when you check out at Covered Perfectly.

The jacket supplied by Covered Perfectly can be found here. I wore it over a white tank top from Chico’s. The ankle pants are by Lior Paris via ShopMyFairLady.com and they are as close as I get to wearing shorts. The necklaces are from French Kande. The Antonio Melani tasseled hobo bag is from Dillard’s last season. The shoes are from Neiman Marcus Last Call.
As is so often the case on our balmy Saturday drives, we stopped in Blowing Rock, North Carolina to share a small lunch and then sit in the park to watch the passing parade of people and cars.
Later in the day, we found that our favorite wine shop had moved down the street and expanded. Congratulations Sharon! Sunset & Vine Wine Shop offers wine, craft beers & spirits but it is also a Wine Bar and a gift shop with a selection of cheeses, chocolates and more. It is a great place to take a break inside or outside on the porch, while shopping and walking around the village.
Mr. Mickey unknowingly appears in our photos sometimes.
This is Mr. Mickey’s version of mountain climbing. Tomorrow is his eighty-third birthday. Happy Birthday Mr. Mickey!
It was still early as we were crossing into Tennessee, so we decided to drive to the top of Roan Mountain.
Have a beautiful day!
