The summer’s first Blowing Rock Art in The Park was May 25th. We had early dinner reservations at Chef & Somm, so we got to enjoy some of the festivities of the day.
Blowing Rock is a delightful village located in the mountains of North Carolina.
We enjoyed the Warm Wild Mushroom Salad with polenta crouton and Cypress cheese.
The Focaccia bread with shallot garlic butter and olive tapenade was most excellent.
Linguine ai Frutti di Mare was a special dish for the evening. It included mussels, shrimp, crab, and calamari, and it was so good.
We made friends with the couple seated next to us at dinner, ladies in the courtyard outside the restaurant, and the guy in front of us at the ice cream shop across the street.
We love to visit Kilwins for one scoop in a cup for our occasional summer splurge. The line was out the door and down the sidewalk for most of the day.
I always bring a scarf or a lightweight cardigan when we go out in the evening.
My look for the day included a navy top by Clara Sunwoo via My Fair Lady here. The top I am wearing is a size medium. I am 5’6″ tall. The white jeans are classic Levi’s straight leg here. The Ralph Lauren metallic espadrilles are from last year. (Similar here) The orange bag is by Dooney & Bourke here. My chain bracelet is here. A similar large face watch is here. The cuff bracelet was a gift from Mr. Mickey. A similar cuff is here.
