If you travel often, you know that it can be challenging to plan your wardrobe around spring weather. We spent the previous weekend in North Carolina’s Yadkin Valley Wine Country.
We were only going away for the weekend, so I took the same jeans style in white and in black, and I wore a pair of blue jeans to travel on Friday. (Similar jeans here.) I also took a white tank, a black tank, my gray cashmere sweater with a V-neck (here), and the gray cardigan here.
I also took two jackets and two scarves. Here is the blue and white scarf; the horse scarf is old. The blush faux leather jacket is a few years old. Similar here. The black and white jacket is also old. Similar here.
The weather was predicted to be sunny and in the high fifties. Instead, it snowed on Friday while we traveled. A bitterly cold wind blasted us all day on Saturday. We enjoyed a delightful evening meal at the Harvest Grill.
Sunday was mostly another travel day, so I made the most of the layered look. We stopped in the village of Blowing Rock for lunch after spending the day driving along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. (Note that some sections of the Parkway are closed at this time.)
I didn’t plan to wear any of these pieces the way I did, but I certainly was glad I brought the sweaters. I wore one or both of them at all times. My Teddy Blake bag is here, and my VanELi pumps are here.
I haven’t given anything away lately, so I thought I would do so in honor of spring. Both the bag and shoes are new. The bag is here. The shoes are here (size 8).
For a chance to win, please leave me a comment below. I’ll randomly choose and announce the winner in the Friday blog post. I bought these items for myself, but the bag is too large for my frame, and the shoes are too small. Both are good dupes of much more expensive items.
