We often spend Saturdays exploring, shopping, or site-seeing while we travel to enjoy dinner at an upscale restaurant. It’s a fun way to spend the day that we both enjoy tremendously. Dressing for these day trips can be a challenge during this time of year because the weather can change a lot depending on where we are going. Today, I am sharing what I wore and how I styled it as the temperatures varied throughout the day on Saturday.
The first consideration is my comfort, but I also want to look nice when we arrive at the restaurant. After a full day of travel and activities, the look can be rumpled by the end of the day.
During this time of year, I always dress in layers to remove or add as needed. While the afternoon temperatures were highest, I took off the jacket. I rarely wear a tank top or shell without a jacket, but this one provides enough coverage at the armholes, and it is also the right length for my shape.
When the air conditioning became too much for me, I added a scarf.
Our final destination on Saturday was Vistas Land and Sea Grille at RedTail Mountain. We have enjoyed visiting this restaurant tremendously. Our dear friend, Chef Peter, is closing the restaurant next month to prepare for his studies at Le Cordon Bleu London for the next couple of years.
Mr. Mickey remembered to take a photo after he had enjoyed the first piece of bread. He certainly is a big fan of bread!
The Crab and Corn Chowder was excellent!
The Roasted Kale Pesto Risotto is one of my favorite meals. It includes risotto cooked in a roasted garlic stock, then tossed with homemade kale pesto and topped with a perfectly poached egg.
Mr. Mickey says the Wild Caught Salmon is the best he has ever had. He orders it often. Perfectly seared with a tomato rosemary chutney, it is served on top of crispy scallop potatoes then garnished with crispy kale chips.
Creme brulee and beignets were the shared dessert this time.
The white jacket is by Tahari from last year. Similar here. The necklace is old from Chico’s, similar here. The shoes are here. A similar bag is here. Links in my posts will generate a small commission for me at no additional charge to you.
