Cold rainy days don’t interfere with our weekend fun, so we dressed for the weather on Saturday and headed to The Bristol Hotel for brunch. The hotel is one of our local favorites all year round, and the rooftop bar in summer is a lovely place to spend an afternoon.
Black straight-leg jeans and a cashmere sweater with a leather-trimmed blazer provided warmth and durability. However, I don’t wear pieces that are too precious in rainy weather since light colors and delicate fabrics will likely be ruined.
We enjoyed your comments on the last post immensely. I think Mr. Mickey wore these musical-themed socks for you.
We spent a lovely few hours on Saturday afternoon sharing some excellent appetizers and desserts along with a sparkling Prosecco wine from Veneto, Italy. This was our only meal besides some fresh fruit and cottage cheese in the morning with coffee.
Pictured are the French Onion Soup with Gruyere, Mojo Shrimp Cocktail, and Roasted AJO (garlic) Hummus appetizers.
Disaronno Amaretto Liqueur is also from Italy, and it is a lovely ending to your meal, with or as dessert.
Bristol lies on the border of Tennessee and Virginia, with the state line passing down the middle of State Street. The drive to Bristol from Johnson City takes about thirty-five minutes. It is about an hour longer if you drive from Asheville, NC.
All the elements of our looks are several years old and similar to things I’ve linked to many times.
We hope your week is filled with delightful moments and many things to be grateful for.
