Earlier this month, we visited the Grove Park Inn to enjoy lunch on the Sunset Terrace in another celebration of my birthday. My bag, jacket, and camisole have been in my wardrobe for about four years. I purchased the jean-style pants by Frame last year, but I’ve never been happy with them, so I gave them to Mr. Mickey’s granddaughter. The fabric doesn’t hold its structure like denim, and the flare starts too low on the leg.
I show you my mistakes along with my successes, but I try to explain why the item didn’t work so that we both learn how to make better purchases. A few years ago, I stopped collaborating with any brands or accepting gifts from vendors, so what you see me wear, you will know I bought with my own money, and I am not being paid to tell you how “great” it is and that you “must have” it.
Mr. Mickey has also made some successful investments in his wardrobe items. His blazer is likely thirty, his shoes fifteen, and his pants twenty-plus years old. Proof that if you buy high-quality elements in a timeless style and take care of them, they will last for many years.
The earrings are the E&L brand made in Israel from T.J. Maxx. My skincare routine is here. I do not wear foundation, blush, concealer, or contour. I’ve not had Botox, fillers, a facelift, or anything else. I fill in my brows, wear some eyeshadow, put a liner pencil in the top waterline, and use mascara and lip color. My makeup routine is here. My haircare and styling routine is here.
We enjoyed another wonderful lunch on the Sunset Terrace. I would happily go there every weekend! The view is astounding, and the food is always excellent. The service is professional and attentive.
We began our delightful late lunch, sharing a shrimp cocktail.
We each had the lobster salad without bacon for our entree.
A chocolate ganache cake to share was a delightful dessert.
Glasses of port in the Great Hall to watch people for the afternoon is always a delightful way to end our meal. Lunch is almost always our last meal of the day.
We hope you have a lovely weekend enjoying the cooler weather.
