We attended one of our favorite events on Saturday. Shelton Vineyards was the site of the annual Mercedes-Benz Car Show sponsored by the Tarheel Section Club Members. The free event attracts members and nonmembers alike who bring a variety of classic, rare, and late model Mercedes for display. We always enjoy visiting the Yadkin Valley wine country, but this is a special treat. Mr. Mickey looks forward to visiting with others who enjoy a classic Benz almost as much as he does.
The temperatures for last year’s event soared to nearly 100 degrees. That memory was fresh in my mind as I decided what to wear for the day. The most comfortable shirts I own are the Portofino shirts I have been buying at Express for the past few years. The almost sheer breezy fabric allows me to be covered but remain comfortable on the hot, humid days of late summer. I wore this bright blue one with light weight white straight leg jeans from Chico’s. I had the jeans altered to touch the top of my foot so that I could wear them with flats. It always makes me look shorter and heavier when my pants puddle over the top of the foot. The silver accessories were gifts from Mr. Mickey. The flat silver sandals were purchased at DSW last year.
I always enjoy chatting with the other ladies and seeing what they decide to wear for the event.
I have a confession to make. I applied a moisturizer from a line I used to use because it was in my travel bag. It has a high SPF and it is light and sheer. I had forgotten why I never wear moisturizer in the summer. The next morning, I woke up with numerous breakouts. When I use the Cleansing Balm found here and pictured above, I never get breakouts and my skin looks better than it has looked in many years. I cleanse my face with the balm but I also use it as a first layer in whatever other steps I apply during both the day and evening. This event proved again why I need to stick with what works and get rid of what doesn’t.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone on the Gulf Coast during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. I lived on a coast line for more than twenty-five years, enduring countless hurricanes in that time, but I cannot imagine what you are going through now. Please join me in donating whatever amount you can to help with the recovery from this tragedy. Houston’s Mayor Sylvester Turner has established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will accept tax deductible flood relief donations for victims that have been affected by the recent floods. Here is the link to securely donate to the fund.
