For those of us who are solar-powered, cold April showers are a painful reminder that summer is still a few months away.
We ventured out only to have dinner on Saturday. The temperatures dipped into the low forties, so I returned to my warm long sleeve white Covered Perfectly top and my heaviest weight slacks from Chico’s. The gray jacket is from White House Black Market here. The Nine West bag is from last season. Similar bag here. The J. Renee slingback tweed pumps are a couple of years old. Similar here.
The topcoat is a couple of years old. Similar here.
Many of you have asked for more layering tips. Keep the colors and tones of your look under three. Start with slim-fitting, thin first layers and build from there. If your top is too long, tuck it in, then pull it back out enough to drape at the waistline softly.
Fresh from the oven bread always lifts Mr. Mickey’s spirits, but he passes on all but the best now. I am impressed with his discipline! He has lost ten pounds in the past few weeks.
Smoked trout deviled eggs are another all time favorite.
Even the side salads are so large we often ask to split one between us.
We each ordered the (most excellent!) Lobster Salad from the appetizers on the new spring menu. Ordering a salad and an appetizer as the main course is one way to enjoy an evening out without coming away feeling stuffed.
Instead of dessert, we enjoyed glasses of Tawny Port in the lounge area while we waited for the rain to subside.
