We have enjoyed going for a drive during pleasant weather and then returning to one of our homes to enjoy take-out or something we have prepared. It has given Mr. Mickey and me something to look forward to during quarantine. We know that it is not yet safe to return to crowds of people.
Saturday was a beautiful day, so we drove up to the mountains to enjoy the stunning views and cool air. It was eighty-two degrees in Johnson City, TN, and sixty-two degrees in Linville, North Carolina.
I wore my favorite white jeans here and my seersucker jacket similar here. I learned long ago to bring or wear a jacket when we go on these outings. It’s fun to add a pop of color with a bag or scarf. My bag is here. Similar shoes are here. (Mine are by Ralph Lauren from a couple of years ago.)
The tank top is new, but I would not recommend it. I wish I had worn my old faithful layered cami here. I’m always on the lookout for plain scoop neck options to wear under jackets and cardigans.
There were no crowds at The Eseeola Lodge in Linville, so we stopped there to take these photos. We were shocked to see hundreds of people shopping, standing in a line out the door at the ice cream shop, and walking in large groups when we drove through Blowing Rock. Very few people wore masks or kept their distance. I prefer to be overly cautious, so we did not linger there.
